Review: Chocolate Therapy

User Review  - Nadine - Goodreads

Joan's life as wife and mother is pretty normal, including all the stresses and joys. Nothing relieves those stress and celebrates the joys as well as a good, old fashioned, milk chocolate bar-- eaten alone or shared with someone. A fun read! Read full review

Review: Chocolate Therapy

User Review  - Janalee - Goodreads

I read this at my mom's when visiting a few days. It was a little painful and obnoxiously written. But not nearly as bad as The Actor and the Housewife - though a similar writing style. And who ever heard of eating 10 chocolate bars in a day? dorky. Read full review
