The ladies of The Chocolate Lovers' Club should be gearing up for the wedding of the year, but life keeps getting in the way.... Lucy is worried about her financial situation, and it keeps distracting her. Should she accept an offer of help from an untrustworthy source? Nadia may have a real chance at finding love, but other areas of her life aren't so rosy. Something needs to change - but what? Autumn can't wait to meet someone she hasn't seen in a very long time.

I really enjoyed the two previous chocolate lovers club books which were read brilliantly by Lucy price-Lewis but this book has chapters which are not 'unabridged' . Sometimes it even skips to the next chapter in the middle of a sentence. not impressed with this download. the story was too good to miss a moment!

Winner of the British Book Awards, Popular Fiction Award, 2007.
Anna Walsh is officially a wreck. Physically broken and emotionally shattered, she lies on her parents' Dublin sofa with only one thing on her mind: getting back to New York. New York means her best friends, the most fabulous job in the world, and, above all, it means her husband, Aidan. But nothing in Anna's life is that simple.

My first Marian Keyes book. I enjoyed listening and am keen to try more from this author as I think she is a good writer. She has a good sense of irish humour running through the novel and I like the little quirkiness of the family back home!

She was a daughter, a wife, a mother. She was my friend. But what secrets did Eloise take to her grave? After her best friend Eloise dies from breast cancer, Cathy is devastated. But then Cathy begins to have disturbing dreams that imply Eloise's death was not all it seems. With a history of depression, Cathy is only just recovering from a nervous breakdown and her husband Chris, a psychiatrist, is acutely aware of his wife's mental frailty.

I loved listening to this book as it really tugged at the friendship heart strings. The nods to depression and coping with it are dealt with well within the book. It has a great believeable storyline for a first novel, well done Judy!

This book had a good setting with, surprisingly, strangely familiar characters. It had a strong storyline with a strong female main character. The descriptions of the setting and life of new York in that decade is how I always imagined. The story's twists and turns is exciting and has you gripped until the exciting action packed ending. An enjoyable 'read'!
