Wow! I absolutely loved this book. I found the narrators in the story very likeable, so likeable to the fact that it felt like I was sitting in a comfy chair in the corner of the room watching everything that was going on. There was a definate family style feeling to the book, which made me feel very warm inside... Alongside the stories in this book, there are questions that definately made me stop and have a good thing about myself and how I do/perceive things. This book inspired me in so many ways, I have to give this book a 10 out of 10...

Reading the stories of encouragement by the author Karen Scalf Linamen and other contributors was like a breath of fresh air, the interesting thing about experiences is that we can relate, there are a range of emotions that most of us at one time or another have felt. In the mix was humour, wisdom as well as some great recipes. There are no miracle `cure all' revelations, but an understanding that we need to dig deeper for the answers and look at the joy that we have in our lives. At the end of each chapter there are additional questions for reflection. This is a light read and would be great for a book club or group to work through.

I was reading an e-book version, and look forward to checking out some of her other titles. I received an ecopy of this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Chocolate Diaries 1 Aug. 2011
By Michele - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I once read that every woman needs several girlfriends, one that is the life of the party to help you have fun, one that is serious and calm and can be there in times of crisis to be a rock and a tell it like it is girlfriend who, true to her name, will say the things you need to hear even when you don't want to hear it.

Karen Linamen is all of those girlfriends rolled up into one and sprinkled with chocolate!

Regardless of where you are on your journey, this book is a great road map to get you where you are going. You will laugh, cry, and shake your head in wonder that someone knows just what you are feeling.

And then the Chocolate. The Sweet Secrets at the end of each chapter give great advice from other women on their life's journey and as a bonus there is a delicious recipe for sweet chocolate therapy!

It is impossible to walk away without being changed in some way by this book. Grab a little chocolate and settle in!

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing and Delightful 4 Aug. 2011
By Victoria Kimble - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'll be honest: sometimes I hear stories of the things that other women have gone through or are currently facing, and I feel ashamed at how relatively good my life has been. Any bumps on the road of my life have been minor, simply irritating pebbles compared with the boulders that other women find themselves crashed against. Because of that, I don't really know how to relate to someone who is facing something life-changing, like divorce, serious illness or abuse. But the one thing I have going for me in that department is I like to read, and I've read this book.

Karen Scalf Linamen has hilariously pulled together stories from dozens of women who have tested and approved strategies for embracing a sweeter life--even while traveling rocky roads. This book is chock full of joy, reasons to laugh, ideas to help you heal and reliable hop leading to a sweeter future. It is also riddled with recipes to help you find ways to indulge in a little chocolate every day.

Ms. Linamen is the kind of writer that makes you feel like you've made a new friend. She expertly weaves in stories from her life that lend to the book's authenticity. Her advice is sound and her humor is refreshing. I may not know quite what to say to someone who is going through a rough time, but I could point them to this book. I think it could be a ray of sunshine on what else would be a dark, lonely path.

This book was sent to me by WaterBrook Press in exchange for an honest review, as a part of their Blogging for Books program.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great encouragement! 3 May 2011
By Tammy's Book Parlor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Anything that has to do with chocolate must be good! The Chocolate Diaries is definitely "Secrets for a Sweeter Journey on the Rocky Road of Life." (actually this is the subtitle on the front of the book).
Most women relate to chocolate....we love dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chocolate truffles, chocolate coffee cream (well, this is my personal favorite) and the list list goes on. So much chocolate so little time <smile>
Now in The Chocolate Diaries the author, Karen Linamen, shares stories about her family, relationships with other women and how other women have overcome struggles....all involve chocolate!
One of my favorite chapters is entitled, Sweet Secrets, Because Real Women Don't Need a Cookbook. And on page 94 there is a recipe for Fab Fondue~Chocolate, of course! It's sweet and easy to make in your crockpot! Then you dip your favorite fruits in this wonderful fondue!
This is one of those reads that will make your life journey sweeter. You'll feel that the author is your friend because many of the situations that she talks about are things we all can relate to. Karen gives sage advice about life and brings us tips on how to deal with these life situations.
My favorite quote from this great read is, "When we're traveling the rocky roads of life, sometimes we need endurance for the long haul ahead. Sometimes we need healing for whatever it is we've just come through. Sometimes we need compasses to make sense of the crazy terrain we have to negotiate." And then right across the page is the recipe for a French Twist: Slice a croissant in half, fill with chocolate chips, microwave about 20 seconds and viola! instant indulgence!
Loved this book! A great-tastic 5 star not.to.be.missed.read!
