It's almost New Year's 1946, a perfect time for Caroline Marshall to start a new chapter in her life. Widowed three years ago when she lost her husband in the war, she has decided to move with her nine-year-old son to join her sister's family in sunny California. Her sister's new house has a basement apartment for Caroline to rent, and though jobs for women are scarce with so many veterans returning from the war, it seems the local chocolate factory is hiring. The apartment turns out to be rather dingy, and the job may be working the assembly line--a step down from Caroline's office job as a secretary back in Minnesota. But Caroline is determined to make a great new life for herself and her son. As she goes about making that happen, she keeps running into a handsome stranger--at the diner, at church, and he even works for M.G. Chocolates. With a New Year, a new home, and a new job, is Caroline ready to find new love?
Lovely! :) This is an excellent read for Valentines! The only thing that I wish is that it was longer! LOL! I wanted even more! It seemed to wrap up too quickly, but that's just because everything leading up to the end is WONDERFUL! The characters, the situation, the business all come together to make a story that I LOVE and could read again and again! Chocolate and romance! What else could you want for V-day?! ;) I highly recommend this little read. Melody is fast becoming one of my all time favorite authors! I've come to expect an entertaining, lovely, sometimes quirky novella from her and she never disappoints! Touching, fun, and romantic!
P.S. I must compliment the artist of the cover! It is not only beautiful but matches the scene within the book beautifully! :)
