Publisher's Summary

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.

No consent!

I’m not interested in books that contain sexual contact without consent. Between the main characters. I almost stopped this book so many times because I was bored or disgusted with so many of the tired cliches it repeated. This was the last straw. Drunk people can’t give consent. And a look in a woman’s eyes is not an invitation.

Real chocolate is so much better

An okay listen, but not great. The production quality is not great and at times annoying. If this is what real sisters are like I am so glad I don't have any. The mom has not set a good example for her girls being an adult or accepting any responsibility in being a mature adult. Even after her husbands diagnosis she allowed him to be in control of the business and all of their financial lives. Ugh. The daughters, each in their own way are children in adult bodies. Not my cup of hot chocolate.

Aweful Narration

I'll have to revise my review after I read the book. with the narration I haven't been able to get past chapter 3. Her voice is so monotone that it's impossible to figure out who's talking and what their mood is. It's just plain bad

Pithy , immature, and Mean-spirited

This was one of the worst stories I have ever listened to in my life. The main character is selfish, rude, and downright mean. Everyone is out of step but her... and there are all kinds of cliches and the story is boring. Why would the handsome hunk want to be with someone so nasty? It just was a terrible read.

Fun listen

I would have preferred better voice differences. There are many characters in this book and I think two narrators would have been better. Story line was good! Darn book had me wanting chocolate.

Nice Book

First, the narration was not bad. The main characters were done well.
Second-The story was light and relaxing. There are times I prefer this kind of stress-free romance.
