Chocolat
A woman arrives in a small French village and sets up a little chocolate shop. Her tasty concoctions are seen as competition by the village priest, who is guiding his flock through Easter. When the floating gypsies arrive at the village too, tempers become more frayed, and the priest finds himself under pressure.
Very enjoyable easy reading. Liked the feyness of the woman, which blended in nicely to her character. Seemed totally anti-church, but maybe it was just anti-this particular priest who was a bit naughty.
