Better Than Chocolate by Sheila Roberts

Goodreads 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 Rating:

My Review:

I loved the way this book was laid out. The story was great an the character development fantastic. I love how you get introduced to the whole family and their lives.  It's not just about one person!  I can not wait to try the recipes in the back also! Definitely a book you should pick up if you like contemporary romances and bonus it's all about chocolate! 

Samantha has the hard luck of being the only person who can save the family business from failure.  Blake, the bank manager, has his hands tied but really doesn't want to see Samantha's family legacy close doors or even worse be sold to another company!  Samantha has a quick fuse and makes quick judgments but she also is willing to give credit where it's due.  I love the dynamic between Blake and Samantha and the outcome.  In the story, the author throws in a bunch of wrenches to mess up Samantha's plans and I loved seeing how she rose above the challenges! Definitely pick this up!
