A Thankful Heart
(Love at the Chocolate Shop Book 2)
by Melissa McClone
Chocolate is better than men, and so are dogs. At least, that’s what Dakota Parker tells herself as she mends her broken heart and finds forever homes for rescue animals. So far, so good. She can indulge her love of chocolate where she works while her foster dogs provide her with the unconditional love she craves. What more does she need?
Seattle architect Bryce Grayson is counting the days until he can return home to the big city with his father in tow. That is if he can convince his dad to leave Montana. Bryce’s escape plan, however, goes astray when he meets Dakota. Her sweet kisses put the chocolate she sells to shame. Maybe he should be the one to move to Marietta, but could he be happy living in such a small town?
He has until Thanksgiving to decide.
A man who wanted nothing more than move his father to Seattle and leave Marietta behind… A woman who loved animals and chocolates more than any man… An attraction that cannot be denied, yet their connection was doomed right from the start.
Ahh, I love a great story that involves dogs and chocolates and city men wearing cowboy suits. A Thankful Heart is a very nice and heartwarming story about two people who do not want the same things in life but are bound to fall in love and break each other’s heart. Dakota is my muse, I love her relationship with the people of Marietta and the animals she help protect and shelter. Plus, she works in a chocolate shop! I’d gladly trade places with her anytime. Bryce, on the other hand, isn’t a book-boyfriend material to me, coz boy, he could be stubborn and selfish and annoying.
But I am thankful to Melissa McClone for this another beautiful story that made me crave for my happy foods and made my heart grin like a dog’s. This is a highly recommended afternoon read!
