Waterstones Says

Borne in on a breeze of magic, mystery and (of course) chocolate, Joanne Harris ends a seven-year break from her Chocolat series as new eddies stir the sleepy village of Lansquenet-sous-Tannes with the return of Vianne Rocher.

Faith. Secret. Magic. Murder...?

Vianne Rocher has settled down. Lansquenet-sous-Tannes, the place that once rejected her, has finally become her home. With Rosette, her youngest child, she runs her chocolate shop in the square, talks to her friends on the river, is part of the community. Even Reynaud, the priest, has become a friend.

But when old Narcisse, the florist, dies, leaving a parcel of land to Rosette and a written confession to Reynaud, the life of the sleepy village is once more thrown into disarray. Then the opening of a mysterious new shop in the place of the florist's across the square - one that mirrors the chocolaterie, and has a strange appeal of its own - seems to herald a change: a confrontation, a turbulence - even, perhaps, a murder . . .

What will the wind blow in today?

“A good read, even if you've never read Chocolat...”

I've never read Chocolat - or its two sequels - but found this worked perfectly well as a standalone novel.
