    Overcoming Horrific Pasts to Find Peace

    I've been wanting to read Willow's story for a long time. I knew there was something in her past that kept her away from Benevolence, Wash. (where she grew up) and I wanted to find out what that was. It had to be something devastating from the various discussions in previous books! Her grandfather needs her to come back to help manage the family Chocolate Haven store so she comes but it's very traumatic for her. I very much admired her for facing her fears and having the courage to come home. She's an ex-prosecutor and everyone thinks she is so strong but they don't know what she has lived through....she hasn't told anyone. Then, on her first night back, she finds an abandoned baby who burrows into her heart and she can't hide her emotions anymore - especially from Deputy Sheriff Jax Gordon. Jax knows a LOT about loss. His past is also one of great sorrow. He's determined to earn Willow's trust because he's always admired her and now they are both fighting for this baby. He searches for the mother of the baby while Willow nurtures the babe in the hospital. It's a wonderful book and has fantastic characters! Like the other daughters, Willow has a very strained relationship with her mother. When they finally have a heart-to-heart discussion near the end of the book, I found myself cheering! I so wanted them to have a close relationship and not argue anymore! I highly recommend this book. You will understand it even if you haven't read the previous books in the series!

    Fantastic story. Bittersweet is the third book in Shirlee McCoy's Home Sweet Home series but it is easily read as a standalone. Willow Lamont is the third sister to return to Benevolence, WA to help keep the family's chocolate shop running as her grandfather recuperates from a leg injury. After running as fast and as soon as she could she never thought she would be back working in the shop again. Yet here she is having to face her demons head on. The only thing getting her through it is a handsome sheriff Jax Gordon and a beautiful baby girl depending on her. You will want to read as Willow's past unfolds and she deals with her demons to have a bright future to go in to. I highly recommend it

    Small Town Contemporary Romance

    Bittersweet by Shirley McCoy Home Sweet Home #3 Coming into the series on the third book was not an issue as the story makes sense without reading the previous books. In this book Willow has returned home to help her grandfather out in the family candy shop. In the past she left town taking a secret with her that has impacted her life in more ways than one. In the beginning of the story she meets Jax Gordon, sheriff of Benevolence, and they find an abandoned baby in a nearby dumpster. Both Jax and Willow have demons to deal with and reasons that falling in love and making a future with someone have been difficult. During the story a search is on for the baby’s parents, the baby is taken in as a ward of the state, Willow becomes the foster parent, community and family are there for one another, the perfection of the family fudge recipe is finally figured out as Willow and Jax finally realize their feelings for one another. This is a well written, emotional, small town romance that I recommend to those looking for more than a quick lighthearted read. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars
