Christmas Livingstone has formulated ten top rules for happiness that she lives by: Nurturing the senses every day, doing what she loves, sharing joy… but the most important for her rules is absolutely no romantic relationships!

Her life is good as the owner of the enchantingly seductive shop, The Chocolate Apothecary. In her shop she can explore the potential medicinal uses of chocolate that make people happy. Her friends surround her and her role as a fairy godmother to her community allows her to share her joy. What she doesn’t need is a handsome botany ace who knows everything about cacao to walk into her life…

Or does she…

The Chocolate Apothecary is a glorious novel of a strong creative woman discovering that you can’t always play life by the rules.
