Christmas in the Swiss Alps

Christmas in the Swiss Alps


Brought to you by Penguin

Let the queen of feel-good Christmas fiction whisk you off to the snowy mountains this festive season...

When Clara signs up for a month of chocolate-making in Switzerland, she imagines the stunning scenery of the magical snowy Alps, a cute chalet and a cosy workshop like something from a Christmas advert.

What she isn’t expecting is chocolate-making bootcamp! In this stark laboratory, chocolate is everything. It’s a very serious set-up, with master chocolatiers to be revered and where favouritism and fanaticism, subterfuge and scandal are rife!

Clara is way out of her depth. But caught up in the world of chocolate school, picking her friends – and her enemies – carefully, she discovers a newfound passion. Until a secret is revealed, and Clara has to decide whether to risk everything she has for a new life and love…
