I enjoyed this book; this series does seem to get better with each installment. It still drives me crazy when each chocolate has to be described in detail though!

“You can have all the sympathy in the world," she said, "just don't feel like you have to wrap your life around it.”
Judy Reene Singer, Still Life With Elephant

Will Schwalbe
“Reading isn't the opposite of doing, it's the opposite of dying.”
Will Schwalbe, The End of Your Life Book Club

Will Schwalbe
“I will never be able to read my mothers favourite books without thinking of her - an when I pass them on or recommend them, I'll know that some of what made her goes with them; that some of my mother will live on in those readers, readers who may be inspired to love the way loved and do their own version of what she did in the world.”
Will Schwalbe, The End of Your Life Book Club

Sarah Addison Allen
“Oh, please. Everyone in this town always says that, like you have to be born here to understand things. I understand plenty. You're only as weird as you want to be.”
Sarah Addison Allen, First Frost

Jasper Fforde, The Woman Who Died a Lot
