HOT CHOCOLATE IN WONDERLAND is like a smack in the face.

wonderful story about a Pop Star who gets herself screwed up with
some crazy, bad people and presses the ejector button. Rescue comes
with love in a story that takes the reader through the pain of
mental health treatment to the hope and happiness of life after the
black dog. This is the only book you need to read this year. It
will give you faith in happy endings.JAMES M HENRY. INTERNATIONAL
FILM & TELEVISION PROFESSIONAL."Hot Chocolate in
Wonderland" is a funny, wonderful first novel by Liza
Brock, a talented writer and
gifted storyteller. Based on true events, it follows the amazing adventures of Louise May, former pop
music star and home shopping network host, who goes from the heights of wild success to the
desperate lows of mental illness and institutionalization. Louise May is our endearing, vulnerable and
extremely human guide through a sea of interesting developments and occasionally exotic locations.
She's impossible not to fall in love with. Her struggles with mental illness are poignant, painful and, at
times, hilarious. "Such is life. Eat prunes," is my favorite line. A smooth, enjoyable read, the novel is a
worthy first effort and highly recommended.Jeffrey Riley is a self-published author whose work is available on Amazon Kindle. He recently finished his first book, "Intake," in what will be the "Imbalanced" trilogy. He lives and works in Winter Park, FL.
