“This book is much more than a romantic story; it will make you want to pick up the phone and call a girlfriend for a chat over coffee and maybe a chocolate treat.”
Not many women would be able to look on the bright side of things when they are left at standing at the front of a church, alone, in a white dress, with everyone blaming her for the groom’s cold feet. Yet that’s exactly what Wynne does. When the only comfort she could find was in the form of chocolate, Wynne decided to open her own shop, called Chocolate Blessings.
With a not-so-secret passion for chocolate, Wynne focuses all her energy on making her passion a success. Which really isn’t all that hard, think about it—what woman doesn’t like chocolate? But, despite all this, Wynne can’t ignore those sweet and utterly delectable dreams of love that refuse to go away. In her dreams, Wynne is dancing in the arms of a very strong and handsome man. But which man? Is it the one she turned away from years before out of fear, or the one who left her standing at the altar? Wynne has no sweet clue.
To the surprise of her best friends, Wynne finds herself knee-deep in planning her ex-fiancé’s engagement party. In the whirlwind that occurs, Wynne must decide which man she is still in love with—the one who walked away or the one in her dreams. Before she can let her heart trust in love again, Wynne finds herself having to face deep heart issues in regards to trusting God first.
Originally published under the title Once Upon a Dream in 2005. This bestseller is sure to touch your heart and have you looking for some chocolate to eat.
Praise for Chocolate Reality
“Chocolate Reality is a fun and fresh read; perfect when you need a little pick me up. Wynne, the main character, is likeable and relateable, and I found myself rooting for her from the beginning. Full of good friends, this book is much more than a romantic story; it will make you want to pick up the phone and call a girlfriend for a chat over coffee and maybe a chocolate treat. 😉 Especially if you enjoy Christian fiction, I’d recommend Chocolate Reality as a great, quick read to escape in.” —Elena Aitken
“I enjoyed this book. It was fun and light… perfect for what I was looking for after a busy day. I especially enjoyed the friendships between the ‘Latte Ladies.’ The book was more about their support and encouragement of each other than it was about the romance. I liked that. I hope there are more books coming that talk about some of the other ladies, like Tracy.” —Doremi
“This was a fun, sweet read full of girlfriends and chocolate. There’s no better combination. Wynne’s struggle of faith is also one that I’ve known quite a few women to go through. Wynne wants to surrender her life to God’s will, but she also longs for a husband and a family. What happens if her dreams and God’s will don’t align?” —Aini
