Caution – reading this book could be hazardous to your waistline.
I’ll Bring The Chocolate by Karen Porter is a delightful look at friendship and chocolate. Karen Porter compares being a faithful friend with delectable, luscious, mouth- watering chocolate. Friends rescue each other, when one is sick. The other visits, brings food, offers to clean the house, and hopefully remembers to bring chocolate.
MS Porter shares simple stories and life experiences to make her point. She skillfully describes a good friend, one that is willing to be there through the tears and laughter, one that is loyal and gives you strength when you need it. There are nine chapters. Each discusses a different aspect of friendship and a different type of chocolate--from Godiva to chocolate pie, from a box of chocolates to a chocolate fountain.
MS Porter knows her chocolate and she knows what a good friend is. At the end of each chapter is a recipe for something, chocolate. From the moment I looked at the cover of this book I knew it would be special; after all the word “chocolate” is in the title. I enjoyed I’ll Bring The Chocolate immensely. The cover is inviting, and the plot is easy to understand. MS Porter has added “Bringing the chocolate “ suggestions at the end of each chapter. I’ll Bring The Chocolate is filled with spiritual insight and written with a little humor and lots of truth. I was drooling for chocolate by the time I finished reading the whole book. I recommend this book to all Christian women.
