Josephine Moon: #Robinpedia

Standard

Josephine Moon is an Australian writer of foodie fiction.  She enjoys laughter, love, and little snacky things. In particular chocolate or honey snacky things. Being a writer she of course also obsesses over tea. Because that’s the rules. Writers may not have many rules but we must love tea, whiskey, cats, and scarves.

Josephine Moon probably has the most delicious selection of book titles in Australia, including, The Tea Chest, The Chocolate Promise, The Beekeeper’s Secret, all published through Allen and Unwin.

Her first novel, Starlight the Brumby, which she wrote at the age of 9, is yet to be picked up. I strongly believe that it will be a hit one day alongside my first novel which was about a sexy hobbit, and Ashley Kalagian Blunt’s killer bees from Mars novel. Perhaps we could get together and combine all three. Call me.

Book Review: The Chocolate Promise by @josephine_moon #AWW2015

1427263745101You know what happens when you say I will never…? You end up doing exactly what you said you would never do. Well in Josephine Moon’s The Chocolate Promise, Ms Livingstone says an emphatic NO to relationships. You do the maths.

As I keep saying, I don’t do spoiler reviews, otherwise why would you need to read the book? But I do need to give away some information to actually say something. Nothing major though.

What I really loved about this book was putting good old Tasmania in the map. When you think romance you think Paris, Italy, maybe even New York. You don’t think Tassie. So I loved the fact that this story was partly set there. I loved that the book had plenty of chocolate in it, although I may have gained an extra pound or three reading the book. A girl has cravings! And I loved all those sweet (I request a pun hi5) moments. I actually learned some new chocolate facts. One can never know enough about chocolate. And I also just generally love the use of language. Just beautiful classic touches with terms like apothecary and the like. I just love those little details.

A really good read for anyone who enjoys commercial women’s fiction and chocolate… of which there is a 100% overlap. 😉
