"Vive la Laura Florand!" (Cassandra King, La Vie en Chocolat)
Dominique Richard's reputation says it all - wild past, wilder flavors, black leather and smoldering heat. Jaime Corey is hardly the first woman to be drawn to all that dark, delicious danger. Sitting in Dom's opulent chocolaterie in Paris day after day, she lets his decadent creations restore her weary body and spirit, understanding that the man himself is entirely beyond her grasp. Until he touches her...
Chocolate, Dominique understands - from the biting tang of lime-caramel to the most complex infusions of jasmine, lemon-thyme, and cayenne. But this shy, freckled American who sits alone in his salon, quietly sampling his exquisite confections as if she can't get enough of them - enough of him - is something else. She has secrets too, he can tell. Of course if she really knew him, she would run.
Yet once you have spotted your heart's true craving, simply looking is no longer enough...

I'm a professional pet sitter/book lover, who spends lots of time driving and walking dogs. Thus, I get to listen to lots of audiobooks.
The narrator was AMAZING! She obviously is american but goodness gracious with all the French thrown into this book she tackled it really well (note I don't speak a lick of French, but it sounds like she knows what she's saying). I also love her French accent. When a French character speaks in the story it is "translated"/ written in English (for the sake of this being an american book and otherwise we wouldn't understand squat), but still one would imagine the character with a heavy French accent. Ms Teri does a fantastic job with this and it really puts you in the story somewhere in Paris. The auther does a pretty fine job setting out the setting as well. You really get the mood of wherever she has you with her exquisite descriptions. Only problem with this being the intense craving for some good quality dark chocolate that will plague you through most of the story!
Really couldn't listen to this one in one sitting. Had to do it in a couple of short bursts, but that's probably due more towards my inability for anything to hold my attention for very long.
If your looking for a romantic story set in Paris with gourmet chocolate at it's core, then you'll want to read this!
