When an exotic stranger, Vianne Rocher, arrives in the French village of Lansquenet and opens a chocolate boutique directly opposite the church, Father Reynaud denounces her as a serious moral danger to his flock - especially as it is the beginning of Lent, the traditional season of self-denial.

As passions flare and the conflict escalates, the whole community takes sides. Can the solemnity of the Church compare with the sinful pleasure of a chocolate truffle?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Mouthwatering ...  a feelgood book of the first order... your senses are left reeling. Read it.' - The Observer

'Is this the best book ever written? Truly excellent... Harris's achievement is not only in her story, in her insight and humour and the wonderful picture of small-town life in rural France, but also in her writing.' - The Literary Review

'Sensuous and thought-provoking ... subtle and brilliant.' - The Daily Telegraph

'A celebration of pleasure, of love, of tolerance.' - The Observer

'An addictive read... haunting, obsessive and just a little nutty, like a freshly made praline.' - Elisabeth Luard, author of Family Life
