Better than Chocolate By Shelia Roberts

Summary: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 adorable  book arrived  at my home last week from  Harlequin for me to review since I am on their review team. Usually they send me things I am not interested in  and I pass them on to people in my own small town.  I loved  how the book began you just fell right in to the story of Samantha and her family's quest to save thier company from the bank.  Samantha's dreams are hilarious!  this is a great start to a series but I have done my research and found that Muriel's story is included in a anthology called Summer in a Small Town: Welcome to Icicle Falls/Treasure Beach.
 There are 2 other books in the series as well
Merry EX-mas  and  What She Wants  they will all be reviewed here soon since  I have purchased them all for my Kindle. If you liked the Cedar Cover series by Debbie Macomber  you will enjoy Robert's series. I would suggest picking up a bag of chocolates to enjoy while you read Better than Chocolate because you will crave it while enjoying this yummy book!
