Synopsis: Nothing could have presaged that the evening in which they met at an embassy’s reception Marta and Reyes would end up being friends. Eccentric, addicted to luxury, with several failed love affairs behind her and a recently inaugurated husband, Marta didn’t seem to have anything in common with Reyes, a woman devoted to her work and family. But fate brought them together and, against all odds, they began to meet on the third Thursday of the month at the Ritz. Between lively chats and comforting cups of hot chocolate, their lives end up being inextricably interwoven. Because, unbeknownst to them, they were both in search of the same happiness.
“In Afternoons over Chocolate at the Ritz”, Reyes Calderón offers us a book full of tempting chocolate bars, black chocolate failures, truffle smiles and deep conversations about love, friendship, family and the value of work—all as delicious as the most authentic of chocolates.
“One feels like gorging oneself on it, as if it were a detective novel.” FERNANDO AGUIRRE, President of Agatha Ruiz de la Prada
“With an agile and witty prose and a wonderful sense of humor, Reyes Calderón describes and discovers, through two women’s friendship, vital and profound horizons.” COVADONGA O’SHEA
