Book Description

September 25, 2012 Life in Icicle Falls

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.

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my silly questions!

1. What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?

That is waaay too far back to remember. Probably The Wind in the Willows. I loved to read and was especially fond of the Nancy Drew books. I was shocked to learn as an adult that my heroine, Carolyn Keene, was not a real person!

2. What are you reading right now?

I’m trying to catch up on all my friends’ novels. Currently I’m reading Diamonds Are Truly Forever, a fun spy tale by my pal Gina Robinson.

3. How does your garden grow?

Well, but not as well as the weeds!

4. What is the last thing you Googled?

Sheet clamps. Pretty exciting, huh?

5. What makes you cringe?

 Raunchy humor
