Virtual Blog Tour: Sheila Roberts' Better Than Chocolate

Better Than Chocolate banner

Better Than Chocolate
Book Description: Sweet Dreams Chocolate Company has been in the Sterling family for generations, ever since Great-Grandma Rose literally dreamed up her first fabulous recipe. But now it looks as if they’re about to lose Sweet Dreams to the bank—and that would be a disaster, not only for the family but for the town of Icicle Falls, Washington. Can Samantha, the oldest daughter and new head of the company, come up with a way to save it?

After Samantha does some brainstorming with her mother and sisters, inspiration strikes. They’ll have a chocolate festival! Time’s running out, but the Sterling women are determined and the town’s behind them, so everything’s bound to go smoothly….

Or not. Events seem to be conspiring against Samantha, and her mother’s attempts to help aren’t helping. To make matters worse, the fate of her company is in the hands of her archenemy, Blake Preston, the bank manager with the football-hero good looks. It’s enough to drive her to chocolate. But Blake’s also enough to convince her that (believe it or not) there’s something even better than chocolate.

My Thoughts: This yummy confection of a small town contemporary has it ties, conflict, romance...and CHOCOLATE!!! Set in Icicle Falls, Washington, readers get to spend time with Samantha and her family as they unite to save the Sweet Dreams Chocolate Company by way of having a chocolate festival. I loved the town, the characters, and the sweet love story. You can't go wrong with a Sheila Roberts romance.
