L'amour et le Chocolat

Biance Moraes FlickrFirst of all I apologize to any French speakers if I totally butchered that title - blame Google Translate!  I felt that I needed to lead with French when discussing Laura Florand, one of my favorite romance authors. The Amour et Chocolat series focuses on the world of fabulous French chocolate and those that make it.  They are very beautifully written and will make you feel like you’re in Paris rather than sitting on your couch or in your cubicle during your lunch break.  

Laura has personal experience with romantic tales set in Paris - that's where she met and married her husband!  In addition to being a fabulous romance author, she also works full time as a lecturer in Romance Studies (French language and culture) at Duke University.  

Laura Florand’s books are available from our collection in print and eBook format.

Also, don't forget to sign up for Summer Reading 2015 (6/1-8/8)!  Adults who read or listen to 5 books or log 600 minutes will receive a "Reading is My Superpower" water bottle.  At the conclusion of the program all adults who have completed the program will be entered into a drawing for a Kindle Fire.  Thanks to the Harris County Friends of the Library for this prize!
