About Us


Books, Chocolate and Wine was setup in February 2015 as a place fro me to share my opinions on the books I was reading. I became completely overwhelmed by the volume of review requests, and so we now have a team of reviewers.

Each of us has very different tastes which hopefully will provide a good mixture of books for you to choose from. We love to hear from both authors and readers, so please get in touch. Don't forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter too.
