A Good fix for the Ups and Downs of Life – Book Review

The Chocolate Diaries: Secrets for a Sweeter Journey on the Rocky Road of Life
By Karen Scalf Linamen

A Good fix for the Ups and Downs of Life

Linamen has sculpted a book of the stories of everyday women like you and me and the ups and downs that are faced on a daily basis.  The Chocolate Diaries is full of anecdotes (and chocolate) that bring laughter and tears, occasionally at the same time. Each chapter brings little pick me ups and how everyday readers handle times of stress.

Linamen has crafted a story full of the sweet and bitter moments in life.  This book was enjoyable, reading about the lives of real people and the ways some women have learned to cope with stress and to find laughter in otherwise dreary situations.  This book is a great read, good for reading straight through or to come back to when you’re in need of a pick-me-up (don’t forget  the side of chocolate!)

Each chapter also brings along delicious recipes for when those chocolate cravings hit.  Every chocolate lover will appreciate this book!

I received this book complimentary from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group through their reviewer exchange program. I am under no obligation to write a positive review. This review is solely mine.
