About this item

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.

What a lovely start to a light series with a serious basis. Samantha and her family are trying to survive the devastating business sense of her late step-father. Everyone loved him, especially her mother, but their long time chocolate business is on the brink of a takeover by a second rate chocolate company, and the bank refuses to extend their loan past February 28. What's the solution to this dilemma? All three sisters and their grieving mom band together to save Sweet Dreams Chocolates. This company was started by their grandmother and employs many people in their town. Unfortunately, everything seems to be working against them, including a rock slide on the road into town. Blake, the bank's new hunky manager doesn't seem to be helping either, but then again, Samantha doesn't seem to be able to communicate reasonably with him. The hope of the town becomes a Chocolate Festival right before Valentine's Day, capped off with a Mr. Dreamy contest. Family and friends work together as only they can, to try and save the company and their town. In the process, they all learn a lot about commitment, friendships, and the enduring charms of "family". Great start to this wonderful series of Life in Icicle Falls, Washington.
