The Lollipop Shoes (Chocolat 2)




For all those who loved Chocolat - the second Vianne Rocher novel.

'Chocolat was a hard act to follow but Harris has managed it in style' DAILY EXPRESS
THE SECOND NOVEL IN THE BELOVED CHOCOLAT SERIES

'Who died?' I said. 'Or is it a secret?'
'My mother, Vianne Rocher.'

Seeking refuge and anonymity in the cobbled streets of Montmartre, Yanne and her two daughters live peacefully, if not happily, above their little chocolate shop. Nothing unusual marks them out; no red sachets hang by the door.The wind has stopped - at least for a while. Then into their lives blows Zozie de l'Alba, the lady with the lollipop shoes - ruthless, devious and seductive.

With everything she loves at stake, Yanne must face a difficult choice; to flee, as she has done so many times before, or to confront her most dangerous enemy...

Herself.

'A delicious urban fairytale, where killer shoes and Aztec myths battle it out with true love and the seductive power of chocolate' DAILY MAIL

About the author

Joanne Harris

Joanne Harris’s Whitbread-shortlisted Chocolat was made into an Oscar-nominated film starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp. She is the author of many other bestselling novels, including Lollipop Shoes and Peaches for Monsieur le Curé, both also featuring Vianne Rocher, as is her new novel The Strawberry Thief. She has also written acclaimed novels in such diverse genres as fantasy based on Norse myth (Runemarks, Runelight, The Gospel of Loki), and the Malbry cycle of dark psychological thrillers (Gentlemen & Players, Blueeyedboy, and Different Class).

Born in Barnsley, of an English father and a French mother, she spent fifteen years as a teacher before (somewhat reluctantly) becoming a full-time writer. In 2013, she was awarded an MBE. She lives in Yorkshire, plays bass and flute in a band first formed when she was sixteen, and works in a shed in her garden.

Praise for The Lollipop Shoes (Chocolat 2)

If Joanne Harris didn't exist, someone would have to invent her.

SUNDAY EXPRESS

One of Britain's most popular novelists.

DAILY MAIL

This is Harris's best novel to date.

FINANCIAL TIMES MAGAZINE

A delicious urban fairytale, where killer shoes and Aztec myths battle it out with true love and the seductive power of chocolate.

DAILY MAIL

Harris is as good at portraying the agonies of motherhood as she is at evoking the scent of chocolate laced with cinnamon and chilli.

This fairy-tale for grown-ups is iced with mouthwatering sugar and spice, but its centre is dark and mysterious.

A poetic, compelling read.

Chocolat was a hard act to follow but Harris has managed it in style.
