The Chocolate Run
The blurb says . . .
Amber Salpone doesn’t mean to keep ending up in bed with her friend Greg Walterson, but she can’t help herself. And every time it ‘just happens’ their secret affair moves closer to being a real relationship, which is a big problem when he’s a womaniser and she’s a commitment-phobe. While Amber struggles to accept her new feelings for Greg, she also realises that her closeness to Jen, her best friend, is slipping away and the two of them are becoming virtual strangers. Slowly but surely, as the stark truths of all their lives are revealed, Amber has to confront the fact that chocolate can’t cure everything and sometimes running away isn’t an option . . . The Chocolate Run is a delectable tale of lust, love and chocolate.
The blurb means . . .
The Chocolate Run is very different from my first novel, The Cupid Effect. With it, I wanted to create a character who is essentially a good, big-hearted person but has real problems with intimacy and trust, which makes her keep everyone – be they friends, family or lovers – at a distance.
Amber’s the kind of woman who’d readily choose an evening in with a good film, a bar of chocolate and a few glasses of wine over a night trying to pull in a nightclub. But a one-night stand with someone unsuitable forces her to examine the very fabric of who she is and how she lives her life…
Although Amber and I both love the same favourite chocolate and both watch a lot of films – we’re not the same person. . . Amber leads a far more exciting life than I do!
