Description
In Benevolence, Washington, the Lamont family's delectable handmade chocolates are a precious tradition—and always a reason to return home. And for the most rebellious of the three Lamont sisters, they provide a chance to create a tempting new future, complete with delicious happiness...Neighbors always ready to help, a laid-back pace—former model Brenna Lamont needs everything that once made her leave her hometown. To help her pregnant sister Addie, Brenna is back to run the family store, Chocolate Haven, and figure out how to start over. But she just can't make the one-of-a-kind Lamont fudge...or make herself really fit in. And with handsome restaurateur River Maynard causing her troubles to boil over big time, can Brenna risk going after what she really wants? River already has his hands full helping his ailing foster mother save her ranch for troubled children. He's got no time for anything but reality and hard choices. But somehow, a daily dose of Lamont chocolates is helping his mom feel better. And Brenna's kindness and warmth is making him hungry for an unexpected new dream only she and Benevolence's magical sweetness can make come true . . . Praise for Shirlee McCoy's Apple Valley Novels"A delicious treat. Don't miss a visit to Apple Valley!" —Emily March, New York Times bestselling author "Sweet as pie." —Publishers Weekly"A wonderful, warmhearted story." —RT Book Reviews
