The Chocolate Lovers' Club
Forget diamonds, chocolate is a girl’s best friend
Some women are addicted to shopping, others can’t get enough of champagne.
Some like to curl up with a good book, and others want a night out on the town.
But there’s just one thing Lucy Lombard can’t live without, and that’s chocolate—rich, creamy, sweet, delicious chocolate.
For her there’s no substitute. There’s nothing it...more
And so there is in this book. It's not Godiva, not even Lindt, it's a collection of stories, Snickers,...more
These club books are always pretty formulaic and twee on the downside, however fun and addictive on the up.

I have previously read a book by Carole Mathews and I have to admit I was really not a fan, but with a title like thi...more
Four women meet in London at a cafe called Chocolate Heaven and develop a friendship because of their love of chocolate. They are all very different types of women. Kind of the main character is Lucy, and her story is told in the first person. Her story/situation is pretty funny, and it's like a romantic-comed...more
The book definitely has some redeeming and hilarious moments - a fabulous break-up revenge scene and a plot-turned-caper to retrieve Chantal's stolen jewels - but it was so hard for me no...more
I would like to believe that no self-respecting young woman would truly be so proud of her ability to stick with a serial cheater of a boyfriend. I would like to believe no self-respect...more
Lo primero es aconsejar que si vais a leer el libro tengáis a mano una buena dosis de chocolate porque os entrarán unas ganas enormes de comerlo. El libro está repleto de menciones constantes a él y no es para menos cuando en el propio título nos da una pista de lo que nos vamos a encontrar.
Viviremos con cuatro amigas,Nadia,Chantal, Autumn y la protagonista, Lucy, aventuras que no imaginarías te ocurrieran en tu propia vida. No digo que no sean creíbles porque yo conozco a mucha g...more
You know what you're getting into on the very first page when you think that Lucy's doing drugs or ha...more
The two married women had seriously flawed relationships with their husbands. I think that these were realistic situations, but overblown in the case of the couple not having sex, which drove the wife to illicit sexu...more
El personaje central es Lucy, una mujer de treinta años quien parece poseer la maldición de la infidelidad, pues todos los hombres con los que ha salido han terminado poniéndole los cuernos y ahora, cuando por fin tiene a su apuesto jefe Aiden Holby babeando por ella aparece Marcus, su antiguo ex novio con el cual tiene cinco años de historia y en una nav...more
Lucy is in a no win relationship with Marcus who at the beginning of the book is found cheating with another woman. He explains to Lucy that when the relationship with Lucy gets too comfortable, Marcus freaks and...more
I felt the book was a slow starter but it picked up in the second half and became a book I did not want to put down. The story at times was sometimes a bit unbelievable, but it was a work of fiction so go along with it and it becomes a great read.
The story centres around 4 women and their sha...more
I felt there should have been one more chapter, kind of like a one year later Chocolate Lover' Club gathering, where the girl's get together and update each other on how their lives are going.
I did love the last page where each girl picks a chocolate....more
For someone like me, who doesn't read chick novels very often, this one was a very enjoyable and easy read. With these kind of books I find them being a lot more entertaining if you can apply some of the situations from it to your own life. The good thing is you don't have...more
The central character Lucy Lombard was like-able if a little whiny and often a pretty pathetic excuse for a modern woman - she is always at the mercy of her more knowledgeable and competent men-folk friends which irked me a little.
The ending was enjoyable and it did leave me wanting to find out about what happens with Crush! The love story between Lucy a...more
A Minor Indiscretion and A Compromising Position both reached the Top 5 in the Sunday Times bestseller chart in the UK. You Drive Me Crazy reached number 8 in the original fiction charts. The novel Welcom...more
