Confessions of a Chocoholic by Lynda Renham
Purchase from Amazon
A collection of short funny tales and a unique insight into the world of chicklit royalty, aka Lynda Renham. A right comedy of errors if ever there was one. If you're looking for her beauty secrets and fashion ideas you've come to the right place. Read of her intimate sex life, her secrets for staying young and how she keeps her man - just. A fly-on-the wall true account of the life of a romantic comedy novelist, written in her own words. It's all here, the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
I spotted the title of this book 'Confessions of a Chocoholic' when it was free on Kindle. Being a self confessed chocoholic I downloaded it straight away. It took me a bit by surprise as, rather than being a fictional story of a chocolate lover, it was a book of real life experiences of the author, told in short stories.
The stories were quite funny and they did have me chuckling in parts. The book is only 65 pages long so it's quite hard to write the review without giving it all away. Lets just say that it touches on some humorous moments related to marriage, sex, builders, mice, and medical treatment. It's an easy book to escape in to when you are commuting, or have an hour or so spare. The chapters are short enough that you can also dip in and out as and when.
The writing style is good, it flows nicely and and at times I have de ja vu about sharing some of the experiences Lynda has had. It didn't even matter that it wasn't all about chocolate (saved me drooling all over my kindle).
