Chocolate Shoes and Wedding Blues – By Trisha Ashley

Posted by Parastou:

This book is like a box of chocolates – full of tantalising delights that are simply too delicious to put down. Chocolate Shoes and Wedding Blues is the ultimate girly read and a perfect gift for Mother’s Day.

Forgive me for using Forrest Gump’s famous quote but it was too perfect an opportunity to miss.  I came across this book completely by chance and I am so happy the Ebook found its way into my Ereader. Full of down-to-earth humour, this enchanting read is packed with romance, shoes and chocolate – what more could you want out of a book?!

Our protagonist, Tansy, inherits a run-down shoe shop hidden away in the village of Sticklepond. She turns it into the charming ‘Cinderella’s Slippers’ – providing the footwear to make any fairytale wedding come true. I absolutely adored Tansy and could really relate to her  – she’s down-to-earth, a bit quirky, loves shoes and bakes, you might as well have called her Parastou!  But there is one thing we definitely don’t have in common – and that is her taste in men. How she managed to last so long with such a horrible fiancé is completely beyond me and was infuriating to read about (in a good way, of course).

But don’t worry! Tricia Ashley thankfully introduces us to a much nicer male protagonist named Ivo, who is troubled by a dark secret in his past and has come to the village to nurse his broken heart. He is tall, handsome and mysterious – the perfect guy next door.

Chocolate Shoes and Wedding Blues is a witty twisted fairytale for the current and contemporary age. A word of warning to any females who have a weakness for chocolate, men, shoes or handbags – you will get addicted to this book. It will leave you craving chocolate and wanting to move to a village in Lancashire. If you do end up  desperate for chocolate (I know I was), then there are some fabulous recipes at the back of the book – I swear by them!
