A fun, lively and sassy novel that out-sparkles Lisa Jewell Delilah had imagined her life was complicated enough. After all, when you're the owner of a struggling but sophisticated boutique that demands your constant attention and the manager of a hedonistic and occasionally snappish Australian sales assistant, you don't have a great deal of time to brood about the state of your love life. But when an intriguing - and oddly fragrant - postcard from a secret admirer lands on your doormat, there's no escaping the thrill of wondering who the mysterious scribbler might be...that is, until the man of your dreams saunters through the shop door and sends your heart into restless palpitation. But is he the enigmatic secret admirer, or merely a coincidental bearer of romantic tidings? Delilah's passions are about to fly into overdrive, although there are the small matters of a shop named Decadence and an assistant named Twizzle to keep her feet on the ground. In a novel of testing choices, dubious charisma and delectable chocolates, can Delilah emerge romantically intact?
