Better Than Chocolate by Sheila Roberts

4 STARS Now I want lots of chocolate! Becareful I think I gained weight just reading this yummy book. It's a book that has you hoping that Samantha can save her family's Sweet Dreams Chocolate Company. I want to come back to Icicle Falls, Washington for more stories about the town. Samantha Sterling is now head of the family business her step-father has run the company into the ground. She just found out that in less of two months she has to payback the full bank loan. She is not sure how she can do that. She hopes the new bank manager will extend the loan for another six months. Blake Preston is back in his hometown of Icicle Falls as the new bank manager to take over and dig the bank out of the hole the last bank manager got them into. The bank has a strict policy on calling in bank loans. Blake feels like the town bad guy when he has to deny Sweet Dreams Chocolate Company. He really likes Samantha and sorry that he can't help. Samantha is the only one in the family working in the company. After her father died her mom remarried and put her step-father in charge. He made some bad choices and left bills pile up. Samantha asks her mom if he had life insurance and if she could loan the company money for a short time. Turns out that he did not pay that and her moms house is behind in payments too. Samantha,her two sisters and mom brain strom the idea of having a chocolate festavel and have it the weekend before Valentines Day. That is less than six weeks away. She gets the business chamber to agree and they try to have it small this year. Things look on track for the festavale and then more problems crop of. Blake is trying to help behind the scenes working on some of the problems. But his boss is making him look bad. He brought the competion up to look over at the chocolate factory that he plans to buy from the bank. Samantha's two sisters are coming home to help with the Valentine weekend. Her mother is in deep depression from having buried her second husband. It was not any easier the second time being a widow. I like the town, it sounds charming that I would love to visit. Thier are a lot of dreamy guys in the pagent to find Mr. Dreamy. Also lots of single women in town that need to find romance so I can see lots of books set in Icicle falls. They even have a ghost and if you see her you will get married soon. I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley. 09/25/2012 PUB Harlequin Imprint HarlequinMIRA
