"Shades of Chocolate" by Cecelia Dowdy

My Thoughts....

What a wonderful Christian romance read that was full of 'faith, family and love' that comes for Toni and Jason beautifully told story in this second series...'The Bakery Romance Book 2.'  How these two met was definitely a work of art as this author brings these two together both having the love of chocolate between them.  Will Jason be their for Toni when it seems like all is going against her? What will happen when Toni and Jason start to open up to each other.  These two main characters along with the secondary characters [Brian, Gia, Larry, Trina, Antoine, Shelia, Cathy, Rhea, Sterling, Mrs. Dukes to name a few] really gives the reader quite a well developed, well portrayed and believable story that will definitely keep you turning the pages.  What had been left out of Toni's life that she so desperately needed?  From this read the reader will find that both of these two main characters will have some baggage that will have to be cleared up before this story ends. I loved how this author brings out this suspenseful romance presentation that will keep your attention all the way to the end.  I also loved how this author brings in how good 'God's grace and forgiveness' is that  he has for all of us. Now, to find out what all has gone on in the 'Shades of Chocolate' you will just have to pick up this good novel to see how well the story is brought out.  The next series will be about 'Sterling' and I am sure it too will be one interesting read just as we found this one. Would I recommend "Shades of Chocolate?"  YES!
