Kurzbeschreibung

Waverly Bryson’s life is officially perfect: She’s engaged to her gorgeous boyfriend, Jake; her Honey on Your Mind TV segment is more popular than ever; and Waverly’s Honey Shop is growing by leaps and bounds. What could possibly go wrong? For starters…everything.

This is Waverly, after all, and drama follows her wherever she goes. Why should her trip down the aisle be any different? Now, before she can marry the man of her dreams, she’ll have to go head-to-head with his high-society mother, whose vision for their wedding isn’t exactly meshing with Waverly’s. Adding to the chaos is the impending departure of Paige, Waverly’s very pregnant retail partner; the arrival of her suddenly secretive best friend, Andie; and the meddling of a new TV producer who’s promising to “shake things up.” Suddenly Waverly’s perfect life feels like it’s about to come crashing down…unless the irrepressible Miss Bryson can prove to the world—and to herself—that she really can have it all.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Guilt without pleasure 15. April 2013
Von kkatstan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is the first book in Murname's series I have read. Another Amazon reviewer comments that Waverly, the main character, is not as well developed in this book as she is in eariler books in the series. I agree that she, and all other characters, are poorly developed and, therefore, emphasize that the book may be better when read in sequence.

Considering Chocolate for Two in isolation, however, I found Waverly, the ostensible heroine, to be utterly self-absorbed and inconsiderate to those around her: her fiancee, her best friend, and her former employer... Waverly's mother-in-law-to-be, another key character, is mildly overbearing but not really dastardly in any creative or unique way. Waverly's fiancee (whose name escapes me and thereby speaks to how interesting he is) has no apparent capacity for independent critical thought; if he has any redeeming quality, it's that he forgives anybody for everything (which I didn't find very redeeming).

Granted, it's not impossible to write a good novel that has no characters who are likable. (Gillian Flynn's novels come to mind; they're packed full of twisted people.) But in such good novels about not-so-good people, the complexity, creativeness, colorfulness, and credible unpredictability of characters--along with unexpected developments in the plot line--propel the story anyway. In this novel, in contrast, once the characters' transparent and formulaic traits are established, nothing very subtle, interesting, or unpredictable happens. When I finished the book, I was embarrassed that I had read it. Chocolate has a lot of calories, but it tastes really good, so I often eat it. But for me Chocolate for Two was a waste of time, without the guilty pleasure one gets from straight chocolate.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun read, but wish Waverly would stop being wishy-washy 13. März 2013
Von Angela Risner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
This is the fourth novel to feature Waverly Bryson and friends. It's been quite wonderful to watch Maria Murnane grow as a writer.

Life is pretty great for Waverly right now: she's engaged to Jake, her Honey business is going very well, and her stint on a syndicated talk show has garnered her lots of attention. People relate to Waverly - both characters in the book and the reader as well.

Jake's mother is, well, she is something that rhymes with witch. She knows that her behavior is cold enough to freeze alcohol, but she seems to feel it's her right as the mother of the groom. Waverly, whose mother is deceased, isn't quite sure how to handle Mrs. McIntyre and thus allows herself to be railroaded in all decisions.

Waverly is also facing an increased workload at her TV job. In addition, her friend, Paige, who also runs the Honey product distribution side of things, is pregnant and due to go on maternity leave. Throw in a wedding and an beyond overbearing future mother-in-law and you can feel Waverly's stress come right of of the page.

Waverly, Jake, and the rest of the cast of characters are genuinely likable. My one complaint is that Waverly "ums" her way through so many conversations with her future MIL that you want to smack her and tell her to grow a spine. It's annoying when people do that in real life and it's annoying in a book as well.

Overall, it's a fun read. I do wish that there had been more of a storyline - maybe less locations, less characters and more substance.

Recommend for fans of the series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Storylines Need More Substance 26. Februar 2013
Von Obsidian Blue - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I have loved all of the 'Waverly novels' that Maria Murnane has been writing through the years. However, this last novel put Waverly back to square one (at least to me) in terms of development. For first time readers, I suggest that they start with Perfect on Paper: The (Mis)Adventures of Waverly Bryson and work there way through in order to be caught up with events in "Chocolate for Two".

In "Chocolate for Two" we have Waverly and her long-time boyfriend Jake becoming engaged. Ms. Murnane can still write very well and you definitely keep rooting for Waverly. I also loved the introduction of the two interns that now work with Waverly and Paige. I found myself more interested in those two characters than with Waverly though.

Overall, I found that this novel just came up short in terms of development of the character of Waverly.

First of all, Ms. Murnane does finally provide additional details about Jake and his family. What I find a bit surprising is that after Waverly and Jake's engagement, Waverly finds out more details about Jake that I would think at this time in their relationship she should already be privy to.

The main problems though is that the only tension in this novel is brought about because of Jake's mother Ava who still is not enthused about his relationship with Waverly. Jake's mother starts planning their wedding and instead of Waverly growing a backbone and standing up for herself she complains to her friends and Jake but keeps going along with it. I think the author wanted to show that Waverly was trying to keep the peace between her and Jake's family but I just got tired of reading about it. Either be upset about it or be quiet. Waverly has been a lot of things throughout these novels, but not passive like she was in this book. I felt as if it was definitely two steps back in terms of her development.

Also with regards to Waverly's professional life. I really wish that Waverly would finally be confident in herself and get her act together. One scene where she meets an buyer that sells her products I thought was just ridiculous. Considering that Waverly was in publicity for a number of years she should know how to speak to people by now and not stammer and be able to put together a coherent sentence.

What I think really Waverly just kept letting things happen to her, in her personal and professional life and never really takes a stand, but somehow at the end everything works out through a ridiculous plot contrivance. Frankly, I think if Ms. Murnane wanted to write a more interesting novel, she would have had Waverly stand up for herself and do what she wanted instead of constantly compromising with others. Also I would love it if we got more scenes of her and Jake interacting together. I loved the scenes we got but felt as if Jake was not even part of the wedding plans at all.

I would still recommend this novel to long time fans of the Waverly novels in order to catch up with her, Andie, and Mackie. I loved the ending and I still do love the writing and character of Waverly. I just want to see more developing and growing and actually a more sophisticated plot. I give this 3.5 stars.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Maybe I'm missing something 17. September 2013
Von Xina143 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
This is the first book I have read by author, Maria Murnane, and it might very well be my last.

I will admit that I got this book without realizing it was part of a series, and perhaps that's why I didn't connect with the characters. Waveryly Bryson, our heroine, seems self indulgent and while I can forgive that if the writing's fun (The Shopaholic series for instance) because I couldn't connect with Waverly I began to see her as petulant, and that turned me off.

Jake, Waverly's wonderfuly boyfriend/fiance seems fine, but in a book like this-just OK-doesn't really cut it. He wasn't dynamic in any way, and because of that I was once again, unable to connect.

Truth be told about half way in, I found myself not caring if I connected with the characters. For instance, Jake's Mom-she didn't seem like a bad person, protective of her son sure, but not manipulative or nasty in any way, and yet Waverly seems convinced of this?

Overall, I couldn't get into it, and though I didn't find anything inherently wrong with Murnane's writing style, I just can't recommend this book.
