A magical story, mirroring the author’s own experiences about finally learning to listen to your heart and follow your dreams. Maya is a firmly stuck thirty-something who takes comfort in her cafe, her food and her unsuccessful relationships. A chance encounter with a customer leads to her transformation from gloomy to goddess.


Men, Money and Chocolate What More Could There be to Life? by Menna van Praag

Well,' she began, 'it's, it is sort of autobiographical, about my journey from being lost in a world of thoughts and obsession with men, money and chocolate, to eventually finding my heart and soul...and discovering that true happiness doesn't come from any of those things, but from being the most glorious being you can be'.

Mirroring Menna's own experiences, Men, Money and Chocolate is the voice for every woman wanting to get out of the rut, find true love, and know we have - and have always had - the power to be blissfully, wonderfully happy!


'This gentle, touching and wryly wise little book is a chocolate in itself - something sweet and delicious.' -- Katie Fforde

'A wonderful, magical book. The perfect antidote to a stressful day!' -- Fiona Walker

'A heart-warming read about learning to love yourself and follow your dreams.' Style magazine
