At first glance, THE BRIDE WORE CHOCOLATE is another "bride-to-be falls for her one true love-and it's not the groom" story. If you come to that conclusion from reading the back blurb of the book, you'd be correct. But-and it's a huge but-this story is that and so much more. And it's the so much more that makes this book well worth reading.

Candace Woodrow is a lot of things. Restless, a little nervous about getting married to the man who is definitely Mr. Right, surrounded by in-laws that make the Osbourne's look like a tame addition to the local petting zoo. Most of all, she's living her dream by owning and running her own business, Gift Baskets to Die For.

"Candy" Woodrow, however, is having one heck of a time resisting Michael Vogler-and the sinfully delicious creations that she makes for her business. Her chocolate cravings are out of control, and it's enough to drive a girl to distraction. Not to mention that Michael looks better than a Godiva-dipped strawberry, and Candy is definitely in over her head.

What makes this book so great is a mixture of wonderful writing, witty dialogue, family members that will leave you exasperated and laughing out loud-and the best chocolate recipes that I've ever had the fortune to stumble across. Yes, recipes. Each chapter is prefaced by a chocolate confection with oh-so-punny names such as "Rebecca's Chuck-the-Guilt Chocolate Chip Cookies" and "Maria's Something's-Up Frozen Chocolate-Covered Bananas."

The recipes alone are enough to make this book a keeper. The story of a bride who is engaged to be married for all the wrong reasons is an added benefit. The arrival of the man who throws Candy's life into a tailspin is a definite plus. And when it all comes together-to bring to life the story of love, passion, and chocolate-what you end up with is a humorous story of the heart.

All in all, for those readers with a gigantic sweet tooth, THE BRIDE WORE CHOCOLATE is a sweet, indulgent love story to cure your cravings.

A funny risque love story about an engaged woman falling in love with another man. Which will she marry? Every chapter begins with a chocolate recipe. Thank goodness you don't gain weight reading about choclate.

This was the first book by this author that I have read. It was a cute story. Each chapter ends with a recipe based in chocolate. Her next book is out, book 2, and I have on my wish list.

This was a fun book with memorable side characters. Odd, usually I don't go for books with cheaters but somehow it works.

I've read another book of this series and I look forward to reading more.

I liked this book so much I want to read more from this author. That says a lot because I rarely go hunting for an author unless it left an impression.

Book 1 of the Sweet and Savory series

This book was so funny and warm. The grandmother would be a fitting sidekick for Stephanie Plum's grandma!

Chocolate lovers and good cooks will love the bonuses between chapters!

Take one restles, slightly nervous bride-to-be, add a mystry hunk who makes a box of Godiva look bland, and mix well. Sometimes crazy is a good thing.
