{Synopsis} – Cocoa is cooking up trouble!

Take one family’s chocolate shop, add a dash of competition with the fancy new store on the block, stir in a candy-crazy Labrador named Cocoa…and you’ve got a recipe for disaster! If Mason and Hannah can win first prize at the annual Chocolate Expo, they may be able to save their parents’ shop. But Cocoa can’t control himself in the kitchen. And one more mess means they’ll have to say goodbye to their pup for good!

{My thoughts} – Cocoa is a rambunctious mischief making chocolate lab puppy. His two favorite humans are Mason and Hannah, a brother and sister, that are the children of the owners of the local chocolate shop.

Mason and Hannah’s parents are having to make a huge decision when it comes to the future of both their family and their chocolate shop. In order to make that decision they are having to leave them with their grandfather while they go to another city and look into their options. No one in the family is happy about this, least of all Mason, since it means they won’t be able to keep Cocoa.

If you enjoy giggling and laughing while your reading a book, I am certain you will enjoy this book. Cocoa does some insane things, that you’d think would be possible, but it’s all in good fun for the most part. In the end Cocoa helps, Mason and Hannah’s parents decide what is best for the family.

I think that any child that gets this book in their hands will love it. I am looking forward to starting book to in a few minutes.
