Julie's Review: Chocolate for Two

Summary: Waverly Bryson’s life is officially perfect: She’s engaged to her gorgeous boyfriend, Jake; her Honey on Your Mind TV segment is more popular than ever; and Waverly’s Honey Shop is growing by leaps and bounds. What could possibly go wrong? For starters…everything. This is Waverly, after all, and drama follows her wherever she goes. Why should her trip down the aisle be any different? Now, before she can marry the man of her dreams, she’ll have to go head-to-head with his high-society mother, whose vision for their wedding isn’t exactly meshing with Waverly’s. Adding to the chaos is the impending departure of Paige, Waverly’s very pregnant retail partner; the arrival of her suddenly secretive best friend, Andie; and the meddling of a new TV producer who’s promising to “shake things up.” Suddenly Waverly’s perfect life feels like it’s about to come crashing down…unless the irrepressible Miss Bryson can prove to the world—and to herself—that she really can have it all.

Review: Chocolate for Two is the fourth book in the Waverly Bryson series and it doesn't disappoint. If you've followed this blog then you know I'm a huge Waverly fan. She's funny, smart, sensitive and a little scatter-brained. In other words, she could be you, your best friend or your sister on any given day.

In Chocolate for Two, we join Waverly on her journey as she realizes she is engaged and as she goes about planning her wedding. Not only that but having to deal with a potential mother-in-law that is at best, frosty towards her.

Not only does she have a wedding to plan but she's getting asked to do a daily segment on the Love, Wendy show and her Honey notes line of products is really taking off. Unfortunately, she also has to find a replacement for Paige, her business partner who's leaving for Nashville.

If you haven't read the series (Perfect on Paper: The (Mis)Adventures of Waverly Bryson, It's a Waverly Life, Honey on Your Mind), I can't recommend it enough. What I love about Ms. Murnane's writing is that she is succinct. It doesn't take her 100 extra pages to get to the point.

Final Take: 5/5

Thanks to the Maria and her publisher for my ARC copy of the novel.

Looks like a fun series. I've had the first of the series on my wish list for a while. Someday I'll get to it.
