This is only the second novel I've read by Trisha Ashley. My first was Twelve Days of Christmas (also excellent), unrelated to this novel, but I enjoyed her writing style so much I didn't hesitate to purchase this book.

Where do I start? I loved everything about this book and author from her wit and humour, not to mention her beautifully descriptive writing which had me completely hooked and chuckling the whole way through from start to finish. I love the girly humour, the wonderful shoe clock - ten past sparkly pink stiletto time, wonderful metaphors, the name of not only Cinderella's Slippers but other business names mentioned in the novel, complete gems. The writing is so believable, you can't help feeling that Trisha Ashley has marketed a business in the past (and if not, should do) and her writing on food is positively mouth watering!

Being new to the village of Sticklepond, the characters where also new to me but I soon got to know them all. I really liked Tansy, full of integrity and long suffering at the hands of her two 'ugly' step sisters, horrid and manipulative as well as the 'evil' mother-in-law to be, Mummy Dearest. Mummy Dearest has Tansy's wimpy fiance Justin tied to her apron strings and has no intention of letting go. I loved Aunt Nan's good old fashioned strength of character and no nonsense, just get on with it, attitude and the special relationship between her and Tansy.

Oh what a joy, I enjoyed it so much I almost read it straight through, stopping only to sleep and for absolute necessities! This was helped along by the short chapters - who doesn't love them, I just kept thinking I'll just read one more!! I absolutely recommend this brilliant witty novel and I'm now looking to read the other books featuring the Sticklepond residents.

I really enjoy Trisha Ashleys writing but have to say there are a lot of similarities in the plotlines of each book. The main character having only one or no parents either by desertion or death, and of course the main character always falling in love and ending up in a good relationship at the end. Having said that I will still go on to buy her new books as I enjoy her writing and obvious love of food, which she conveys mouthwateringly well.

Trisha Ashley has done it again! She has a smooth and humorous writing style; with characters that are believable and yet often surprising. In this story Tansy inherits a great aunts shoeshop and transforms it into a specialist wedding shoe shop! Her delightful assistant Bella is a joy! When an old flame moves into the cottage next door matters do not look auspicious! His curmudgeonly demeanour begins to thaw however with evening treats to thank him for walking Tansy's rather unusual but appealing hound. I encourage you to read this latest novel in the expectation that you will be in for a treat. The way to a mans heart may just be through the delicious food and rather alcoholic drinks Tansy conjours up!

Another very good story from Trisha Ashley - love her characters and storylines. This is another good summer read, and some of her Christmas stories are great favourites, such as 'Twelve Days of Christmas'!

This continued with the author's previous themes, of chocolates and weddings, but I really did enjoy it. Very easy and relaxing, with the usual broken relationship, and meeting with a handsome hulk at the beginning, with the reader knowing quite well that the heroine with get together with this much more suitable hero. Alls well that ends well. I loved reading about the wonderful chocolate.

I must admit I was highly disapointed in this book. I treated myself to the kindle copy after adoring her other stories, but this like the last fell so far below par.

The background story of Aunt Nan was incrediably poor, and I had no interest in it in the end as it bored me.

The main character Tansy (silly names in this book) was weak and her story was so simular to that of other characters, re-mets boy she should have married years ago - I want to much more than this, Chocolate Kisses covered this beautifully, we don't need it again with such unintersting characters,the hero Ivo did not appeal at all, why would you want to be in a relationship with him and the boyfriend left Justin, like another reviewer said why would you stay with him when his mother packs all your belongings away when she visits, definately not for 7 years!

Massive parts of the story were continually retold in the text, constantly retelling you something mentioned only a chapter previously which annoyed me as I felt it was only there to bulk the book out.

Highly disapointed, even though it was nice to see what happened to the other characters from Sticklepond, although they felt they were just wheeled out and appeared so flat in comparison to previous meetings. I believe that the title reference of chocolate shoes hoped to build on the success of Chocolate Kisses, but is far inferior to that book.

Along way from the brilliance shown in the Twelve days of Christmas and Chocolate Kisses.

I do love this book. I can't wear high heels, but I love looking at them in shops. It was the first Trisha Ashley book that I downloaded and I was hooked from the start.
It's a nice modern retelling of Cinderella and I enjoyed every minute. In fact, I'm off to read it again, now that I've read her other books.
Thanks, Trisha Ashley. You bought me great pleasure.
