Harris's follow-up to Chocolat is every bit as compelling and multifaceted as its predecessor. The reader is transported to Paris as the sights, sounds and flavors jump off the page, filling the senses with lyrical, delectable writing. Her attention to detail and expert storytelling make this a must-read for anyone looking for a tantalizing sequel, a solid stand-alone or a delicious escape.

Vianne and Anouk arrive in Paris with a new addition in tow. Vianne finds running a chocolaterie in a new town difficult, while a seductive stranger begins to watch and wait for the perfect time to make her move--perhaps changing the course of Vianne's well-laid plans. There are secrets and altered paths, but it's the magical gift of chocolate and the loving bonds of family that see Vianne through to the end. (MORROW, May, 464 pp., $24.95)
