Samantha Sterling is determined to save her family’s chocolate business, Sweet Dreams Chocolates. She has worked hard and is not going to let a pesky banker tell her that the business is going under. Unfortunately, Samantha is at the end of her rope and she fears that Blake Preston is going to make her lose something her family has worked towards for several generations. Then, a miracle happens. At least, a family miracle as the Sterling women come together to raise the funds to save Sweet Dreams Chocolates.

It is do or die time and they are counting on the first ever chocolate festival in Icicle Falls to save the day. But perhaps, Samantha should take another look at the bank because Blake may have something up his sleeve to help.

BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE is a homey, small town story that fans of cute close-knit communities will enjoy. Icicle Falls definitely protects its own and they do not want to see Sweet Dreams Chocolates fail anymore than the Sterling women do. There are several storylines running throughout this book. Samantha and Blake’s evolving relationship is only one part of the plot. Samantha’s sisters and mother play an important role in both the festival and the community itself. This book tends towards more women’s fiction than straight romance but Sheila Roberts is definitely setting the stage for more romance to come. BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE will hit the sweet spot for readers who like quaint, small town stories where the underdog comes out on top.
