The Confectioner's Tale by Laura Madeleine Giveaway (continental US only)

The Confectioner's Tale
Laura Madeleine

At the famous Patisserie Clermont, a chance encounter with the owner's daughter has given one young man a glimpse into a life he never knew existed: of sweet cream and melted chocolate, golden caramel and powdered sugar, of pastry light as air. But it is not just the art of confectionery that holds him captive, and soon a forbidden love affair begins.

Almost eighty years later, an academic discovers a hidden photograph of her grandfather as a young man with two people she has never seen before. Scrawled on the back of the picture are the words “Forgive me.” Unable to resist the mystery behind it, she begins to unravel the story of two star-crossed lovers and one irrevocable betrayal.

A literary mystery and love story, The Confectioner’s Tale is as pleasurable as the finest French patisserie.

I LOVE dark chocolate; the darker the better (80% is my jam). I've been known to enjoy roasted almonds in my chocolate bars as well... mmm. I've also recently discovered the magic of salted caramel. Not a huge fan of caramel by itself, but the combination of salty and sweet is to die for!
