I loved CHOCOLATE...so I had to get the next part of the story. And it was a winner too! The Girl with No Shadow will require some concentration, this is not an easy cozy, but the story is absolutely worth it. Loved this book.
Reading about magic/spirits was new for me. I'm not a person into the magic world, so I was enlightened in this aspect. The main character changing into different people as she moves from place to place is interesting. The description of running a chocolatier can be mouth-watering for someone who likes chocolate. This is a much deeper read into the world of magic/spirits than Chocolat. I emjoyed this book.
