Book Blog Tour Stop - Better Than Chocolate by Sheila Roberts

I am so pleased today to host a book blog tour stop for the fabulous author, Sheila Roberts, and her new book, "Better Than Chocolate."


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.

I always enjoy reading anything by Sheila Roberts - she's a quality author!  But "Better Than Chocolate" is absolutely the cream of Sheila's book crop!  I just absolutely adored this story!

Set in the fictional town of Icicle Falls in beautiful Washington State, this story has all the elements of a great tale - humor, a bit of mystery, a good dose of action, and a generous, heaping helping of romance!  The citizens of Icicle Falls are charming and full of personality, the setting is a town everyone will wish they could visit, and best of all - the chocolate!!!  Oh yes, there is plenty of chocolate inspiration in this book!

"Better Than Chocolate" is a delicious read that is a pure delight to indulge in.  I highly recommend it!
