One taste is not enough: $6.99 Chocolat on DVD

GENRE:   Comedy/Drama > Romance

I have seen the movie Chocolat a couple of times. One taste is not enough. This week I decided to pick up the novel of the same name and give it a try. The New York Times called the novel "[a]n amazement of riches." Yep. That about sums it up.

I didn't realized that Chocolat (1999) is part of a series. There are two other books: The Girl With No Shadow published in 2007 and Peaches for Father Francis published in 2012 (US titles).

<sigh> My TBR list keeps getting longer and longer.

Have you read the series or seen the movie adaptation?
