In that act of full disclosure I have known the author since we went to college together many ages ago We have drifted apart but do that random social media/touchstone thing where you are not involved in that daily life, but don’t lose contact. The kind of friendship that comes without birthday cards but if you needed a kidney I’ll see if I am a match. That being said this is the first time that I have ever read anything that she has written and I am more than pleased. She artfully manages to take the standard idea of romantic comedy and weave in a story that makes the reader want to keep reading. The characters are dynamic and fresh and are done in such a way as to make them utterly relatable to anyone you may know. She manages to blend unfamiliar backdrops with a solid story that keeps both the reader grounded and yet looking to the horizon, and turning the pages. Overall a great read, perfect for a plate of chocolate chip cookies and a cup of tea…or if you are less inclined to bake a nice glass of wine and a Snickers bar. I would highly recommend this book and personally can’t wait to see what she writes for us next.
What could be better than chocolate? Hmmm ... that thought alone caught my attention when I read the description to this sassy tale. Author J. Lynn Rowan weaves a fun romantic story that follows the crazy journey that Carmella Sannarelli embarks on when best friend Sadie Miller informs her that she will be her Maid-of-Honor in the Caribbean island of St. Croix. But there is just one little thing ... Sadie used to be engaged to fellow best friend Ryan Wutkowski, that is until they suddenly break up and she takes off to the Caribbean where she meets wealthy Nelson Mattingly in flight, and a week later she is engaged to be married in three weeks! Phew ... did ya get that? Well, when Sadie tells Carmella about her plans, Carmella is astonished that her two best friends have broken up without telling her, plus the shock of the upcoming nuptials completely throws her for a loop. And if you think that is crazy, it's just the beginning ... Carmella and Ryan are unexpected seat mates on a flight to San Juan, where she has a two day layover and he is attending a conference. They catch up with each other ... it's just like old times ... but the mystery of the breakup still has Carmella confused. Things get even crazier when Carmella arrives in St. Croix and Sadie is up to her old matchmaking tricks when she introduces Carmella to Nelson's brother and best man Joshua, but Sadie's subtle matchmaking antics gets turned up a notch when Ryan suddenly arrives in St. Croix and joins in the wedding festivities. Hmm ... could an unexpected chance at finding one's true love really be better than chocolate?!
Better Than Chocolate is a thoroughly entertaining romantic tale that will keep the reader in stitches. Told in the first person narrative by sassy Carmella Sannarelli, the reader is transported along for the ride as Carmella embarks on a crazy journey of personal discovery, and an unexpected chance at finding true love.
This is a fast paced and fun novella that has engaging characters, humorous interactions and witty dialogue, flashbacks to the three best friends' relationship, and a sweet romance. The author provides the reader with a rich description of the tropical Caribbean island settings of San Juan and St. Croix, it makes you long for a little tropical adventure of your own. I really enjoyed following Carmella's journey, how the mystery behind Sadie and Ryan's breakup unfolds, and the swoon worthy sweet blossoming of a new romance that is so unexpected but oh so right, and maybe even better than chocolate (gasp)!
Better Than Chocolate is an enjoyable and lighthearted romance story that will leave a smile on your face.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book from the author / publisher in exchange for my honest review.
I wound up deleting after skimming the end. There is the H, h and h's best friend. The three of them have been hanging around since college. That's about nine years. The H and best friend have been dating since and are about to get married. Then the best friend breaks off engagement and marries someone else. The H and h are attracted to each other. The H was interested in the h since the very beginning but he did not feel that she was interested so he turned to the best friend. The best friend knows that the H is interested in the h and tells her. The H also tells her. But the h resists getting together with the H after the broken engagement because of being second best, sister code, etc. So as time passes, I think each of them see other people. The two do not get together till the last few pages of the book. So while they do have a HEA there is not much of them together before the HEA.
What a clueless trio. How in the world is this romantic? Why would the H turn to the best friend and plan to marry her if he loved someone else? That is just wrong. And it appeared that the best friend knew the H was settling when they were together.
