Juliet ​Joyce has been happily married for twenty-five years. But with two grown-up children who treat the house like a hotel, a seventy-year-old mother who’s just moved in and a father who’s announced he’s gay it’s hardly surprising that her relationship with her husband Rick is beginning to suffer. Juliet’s resigned to the fact that the only romance she’s going to get is from the pages of her library books, so nothing prepares her for the unexpected return of Steven Aubrey. Last seen twenty-six years ago, when he jilted Juliet on their wedding day, he ignites a passion in her that she thought was long gone. But will Steven sweep her off her feet or can Rick remind her of the loving feeling that they’ve lost? There’s only one way to find out...

Emma ​and Leo have been together - off and on - for ever. But their relationship seems to have lost its spark - it's as though the magic has gone. When Leo turns up at Emma's thirtieth birthday dinner unforgivably late and horribly drunk, embarrassing her in front of her family, she can't help wishing things were different. In fact, she wishes Leo was different. She loves him very much but if someone could wave a magic wand and turn him into a reliable, considerate boyfriend it would certainly save her a lot of trouble. When Leo's path crosses with a decidedly sparkly wisp of a girl called Isobel, he falls under her magic spell and Emma sees him altering before her very eyes. Soon she regrets wishing for a 'new' Leo at all. And, surely, Isobel can't be for real? One thing's clear, if Emma's going to win him back, she'll need to do some changing of her own...

Carole Matthews - The ​Chocolate Lovers' Club
Chocolate ​is the glue that holds together a disparate group of London ladies in British writer Matthews's frothy latest. When secretary-aspiring-to-be-an-executive Lucy Lombard discovers her boyfriend is cheating on her, she convenes an emergency meeting of the Chocolate Lovers' Club at upscale chocolatier Chocolate Heaven. But Lucy isn't the only one with a problem: Nadia, a stay-at-home Indo-Brit mom, has a husband with a gambling problem; Chantal, an American transplant journalist, has married into money and a loveless marriage; and old-money do-gooder Autumn's shifty brother moves in with her, causing plenty of disruption to Autumn's tranquil abode. As the dramas play out, Chantal gets the worst of it: her extramarital lover makes off with some of her expensive jewelry. Other romances alternately fizzle and sizzle as the chocoholics chow down on their confections and concoct a plot to get back Chantal's jewelry. Though the narrative's chocolate crutch can get tedious (sometimes very), the Brit humor and unexpected subplots are rewarding.
