Publisher's Summary

Christmas is just around the corner, but the women of The Chocolate Lovers' Club have more to worry about than present shopping....

Lucy loves running Chocolate Heaven, but she hasn't spent time with her boyfriend, Aiden, in weeks. And then her ex-fiance turns up, and things become even more complicated. Nadia hasn't let herself get close to a man in a long time, yet she can't help feeling drawn to Jacob. Will he be her last chance for a happy ending?

Chantal and her husband, Ted, are besotted with their baby daughter, Lana - but she's not sure that's enough to base a marriage on. Autumn is dealing with a tragedy that has hit too close to home. But when she doesn't get the support she needs from her fiance, will she look elsewhere for comfort? Can friendship overcome all in...The Chocolate Lovers' Christmas?

A bit disappointed

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would change how Lucy was portrayed in Book 3. She seemed to have ended on a stronger note in Book 2 than how she was portrayed in this book in regards to Marcus.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I wish the narrator (which I normally love) would have stuck with the voices she gave Lucy and Chantal in Books 1 and 2. In Book 3, Lucy had a bit of a squeaky/whiny voice, and Chantal had an English accent she didn't have in the first 2 books (considering she was an American).

Love it

I feel part of the story like I am ‘part of the Chocolate Lover’s Club”. Wonderfully written but thoroughly enjoy the audio !

Easy read

This was a great book and so easy to listen too. I have already pre ordered the follow on book. These sort of books are all very predictable but lovely stories.

A comforting story

A pleasant easy-going story that's calming and enjoyable. A classic chick-lit story which is read clearly and worth the listen

Basic story, basic characters

I've still got 4 hours to go and I'm debating whether it's worth finishing, none of the characters are likeable, storyline is predictable and I'm not really bothered how it will end. If you're hoping for a nice Christmas read I would give this one a miss.

Enjoyable

Pleasant but predictable. It was my first audible book and I did enjoy being read to as I drifted off to sleep or relaxed in the bath.

Story is sweet but a storyline that's similar to so many others.

Narrative was clear and well read .

Excellent story, poor narrator

Great story, was delighted it went on for 90+ chapters.
unfortunately the narrator portrayed a few characters as rather whiny which after a while became irritating.

predictable

from the start to finish you could second guess what was going to happen next. I didn't like the narrator you could barely tell the different characters apart. All in all very disappointing

Childlike story with annoying performance

I still have three hours of this to go and I’m not sure I’ll bother. I was sure I was almost at the end a few hours ago and was disappointed when I saw I had 6 hours left.
The voices given to each of the women are childlike and simpering. Lucy’s character seemed particularly annoying with a babyish voice - not helped by the fact that she calls her boyfriend ‘Crush’ throughout. Plus, other than vague references to chocolate reindeer, there is very little mention of Christmas in the book at all!
I was hoping for a bit of lighthearted chick lit in the lead up to Christmas but I just found it to be annoying. These women are supposed to be in their 30s not their teens, so their constant musketeer type chants of ‘Yay for the Chocolate Lover’s Club’ are hugely out of place - far too Enid Blyton for my liking. Add to that how pathetic some of the characters seem to be, Lucy getting into trouble and being saved by her hunk ‘Crush’ is hardly empowering!
I’m normally easily pleased with this type of book but now can’t wait for it to end - if I ever get there that is.

What happened to Chantalle?

I enjoyed the continuation of the story, there weren't really any surprises though.

Almighty cock up with the character's accents though. In first two books, both narrated by LPL, Chantalle had a very distinct American accent with a slight husk to her voice, in this she sounds like some sort of dreadful parody of a haughty English toff, it was a little off-putting to say the least. Chantalle was my favourite character in the first two books but her voice was like nails down a blackboard in this story.

Another Carole Matthews Charmer

Carole Matthews does it again with another humorous story from her infamous 'Chocolate Lovers' range. Brilliantly narrated by Lucy Price-Lewis. If you like chocolate, I would definitely recommend.
