This was an easy, enjoyable read. It reminded me a bit of the Lauren Willig "Pink Carnation" series and the Tasha Alexander "Lady Emily" mysteries, as a few other reviewers mentioned. The strongest points were the plotting and pace. The research needed to create a plausible financial scheme in the Napoleonic era separates this from fluffier historical fiction. The heroine was no-nonsense and the hero was likeable and not perfect (which I find completely off-putting in a story). I wasn't terribly into the chocolate thing, but in general, I like characters who appreciate good food and drink, so it was OK by me.
