Review: Chocolate Beach (Chocolate #1)

User Review  - Olivia - Goodreads

This was an okay book. I didn't love it, and the ending left something to be desired - it lacked a good climax. It also sort of missed the boat with the religious theme, which felt like more of an after-thought than anything else. Final verdict: so-so. Read full review

Review: Chocolate Beach (Chocolate #1)

User Review  - Ann Miller - Goodreads

Cute, but not a lot of depth. I liked the picture of a healthy mother-teen son relationship Carolbini depicted. I didn't ever fall in love with the main character. Read full review
