The Chocolate Kiss
The Chocolate Kiss | Laura Florand
12 posts | 11 read | 7 to read
The Heart of ParisWelcome to La Maison des Sorcieres. Where the window display is an enchanted forest of sweets, a collection of conical hats delights the eye and the habitus nibble chocolate witches from fanciful mismatched china. While in their tiny blue kitchen, Magalie Chaudron and her two aunts stir wishes into bubbling pots of heavenly chocolat chaud.But no amount of wishing will rid them of interloper Philippe Lyonais, who has the gall to open one of his world famous pastry shops right down the street. Philippe's creations seem to hold a magic of their own, drawing crowds of beautiful women to their little isle amidst the Seine, and tempting even Magalie to venture out of her ivory tower and take a chance, a taste. . .a kiss. Parisian princesses, chocolate witches, ptissier princes and sweet wishes--an enchanting tale of amour et chocolat.Praise for Laura Florand and her novels"Charming and laugh-out-loud funny." --New York Times bestselling author Deborah Smith"Readers will be happy to live vicariously in Laura's French fairytale." --Booklist"Frothy, French confection of a novel." --Publishers Weekly"Both sensual and sweet. . .a story that melts in your mouth!" --USA Today bestselling author Christie Ridgway"Vive la Laura Florand!" --Cassandra King

Philippe tried again to make out the drawing without seeming to. Sylvain lifted his forearm so that the paper curled back over itself and over Magalie‘s arm in the process, hiding the #sketch completely. #QuotsyJune19

I picked this up and read this because it was on NPR‘s #100 swoon worthy romances.
(This is one of my favorites from the list)

Yesterday afternoon's high tea at The Chocolate Chamber: lemon scones with mango jam, sandwiches, salad, and lavender-flavored hot chocolate. Delicious! Places like this always remind me of @LauraFlorand's books so that's what I'm tagging.

Cinq etoiles ✨J'adore ce livre. Enemies-to-lovers, slow burn, multicultural, strong characters, french pastries, hot chocolate- I love everything about The Chocolate Kiss. This book just made me so happy while reading it. I smiled, I cried, I felt for both Philippe and Magalie in their journey to love. Secondary characters were fleshed out well. The descriptions were lavish, evocative, and as decadent as chocolat.

This is book two in the series - I'm sure you can read them out of order. Fortunately for me my library had the ebook of book one The Chocolate Thief. I read these on the red-eye home last night. I really was not up for anything heavy, although I stayed up longer than I should have getting sucked into this sweet world. Holy sweetness!

Chachic Love this series! 3y

Tonight's date night dessert immediately reminded me of something Philippe Lyonnais would make. Le sigh.

Macarons always remind me of this book! These are from Antoinette and they are my favorites in Singapore, I like them even more than the Laduree ones here.

Sharing a quote from the book:
"She spoke the word macarons lovingly, the way any Parisian would. Bearing no resemblance to the chewy, coconut-filled American macaroon, the heavenly sandwiches of air and lusciousness that were the Parisian macaron were the test of a pastry chef's quality."
