Better Than Chocolate

Better Than Chocolate by Susan Waggoner seemed like an interesting story in which a woman's husband invents a "chocolate zero" type product and becomes famous turning their family and lives upside down. However, it was a dissappointment to me. I was looking forward to reading it. The book took me a long time to get through. I started it and stopped to read something else, picked it up and tried it again several times before I finally forced my self to finish it. It was slow moving and dragged on. The writing was actually good and I liked the characters, but the story was not believable. It was almost a fantasy, and I was not expecting that. The story dragged without much happening and when the story finally resolved, it just left me, as a reader, hanging. Overall, I don't think I'd recommend this book. It left me unsatisfied and sorry I had wasted my time on it. 2 stars.
