LoveReading Expert Review of The Lollipop Shoes

The much anticipated sequel to Chocolat, The Lollipop Shoes is set 5 years after we left Vianne and her daughter Anouk. Vianne now has another daughter and the three of them live in Montmartre. Vianne has changed their names, given up her magical ways and stopped making chocolate, that is until a stranger blows in to town and gradually persuades Vianne to regain her chocolate making skills. Joanne Harris is on top form and it is a delight to re-visit these characters. Prepare for a battle of wills and magical skills as good and evil fight it out to the end. Enchanting.

The Lollipop Shoes Synopsis

Seeking refuge and anonymity in the cobbled streets of Montmartre, Yanne and her daughters, Rosette and Annie, live peacefully, if not happily, above their little chocolate shop.Nothing unusual marks them out; no red sachets hang by the door.The wind has stopped – at least for a while.Then into their lives blows Zozie de l’Alba, the lady with the lollipop shoes, and everything begins to change….

But this new friendship is not what it seems.Ruthless, devious and seductive, Zozie de l’Alba has plans of her own – plans that will shake their world to pieces.And with everything she loves at stake, Yanne must face a difficult choice; to flee, as she has done so many times before, or to confront her most dangerous enemy…..

Herself.
