Must Buy Books: Peaches For Father Francis

Blurb: The bestselling author of Chocolat and The Girl with No Shadow returns to Lansquenet in this enchanting new novel, Peaches for Father Francis (in the UK called Peaches for Monsieur le Curé)
When Vianne Rocher receives a letter from beyond the grave, she has no choice but to follow the wind that blows her back to Lansquenet, the beautiful French village in which eight years ago she opened a chocolate shop and first learned the meaning of home.
But returning to one’s past can be a dangerous pursuit. Vianne, with her daughters, Anouk and Rosette, finds Lansquenet changed in unexpected ways: women veiled in black, the scent of spices and peppermint tea—and there, on the bank of the river Tannes, facing the church, a minaret. Most surprising of all, her old nemesis, Father Francis Reynaud, desperately needs her help.
Can Vianne work her magic once again?

I read Chocolat right after I saw the film, which I loved. I didn't know for ages that she had written a sequel. Now there is another book. I absolutely must have this one!

If only I hadn't spent all of my Amazon Gift Card on Dark Shadows, Diana Krall and Matchbox 20!

Ah well, maybe I'll be able to conjure up some money to get this one soon!
