Chocolate for Lilly is a historical fiction set in the 1920s. It is the first book of its series, and the story revolves around Lilly and Robert. Lilly is looking for the long-lost sister she never knew she had, and Robert, her childhood friend, has just graduated from college. They board a train pretending to be married and set on this adventure of a journey pursuing their goal. Emmaline and Lilly are two loving sisters that happen to shape this story to what it is, a lovely novel.
The historical references were mostly towards the restrictions women had at the time, and that shaped the entire story. The three main characters were created very well and came with enough backstory that enriched the literature.
I found the pace of the story to be steady and the plot to be unique in its nature. The book would suit women fiction readers and had hints of romance that would be suitable for romance readers.
