    The Thankful Heart

    I love the Tule crew. They always deliver great books. I have read Melissa's book and fell into the story. This one was a breath holding story. Bryce's Dad Walt moved to Marietta, had a major accident and terrified his son. Bryce meets Dakota at her job in the Chocolate Shop. He is rude. Sage owns the Shop and worries over Portia. Dakota volunteers at the Town's pet rescue. She finds out Bryce is scared of big dogs. The rescue is going broke and then their water pipes break. Now Dakota has to write a proposal and if all pets get forever homes they will get a major donation. Bryce wants Walt to come to his home to be closer and not be lonely. Bryce gets mad when Dakota is on Walt's side. There are lots of side spoilers in this book. You will gasp in places and laugh in others. This story is for anyone to read. Give this book a chance and enjoy your reading! I have volunteered to read and review this book.

    Not my favorite hero but I'll let it go

    Dakota has had her heart knocked around more than enough and even though she gets involved with Bryce with the full knowledge that it is going to be short-lived, she did not expect to lose her heart once again. Even though he's horrible to her at first Bryce learns to unclench long enough to appreciate all that Dakota has to offer albeit temporarily. In all honesty, Bryce is a real douche! But he's reformable as you will see as the story progresses so I'll let him off the hook. By the way, is it just me or is it a coincidence that all the male leads in this series are not chocolate lovers? How sad for them. I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from NetGalley for voluntary review consideration

    Sweet & Clean Romance

    "A Thankful Heart" by Melissa McClone is book number two in the "Chocolate Shop" series. This is Dakota Parker and architect Bryce Grayson's story. This is a clean, sweet and heartwarming romance. The author did a great job of incorporating a sweet romance with bringing awareness to struggles that people experience with dyslexia, and the needs of animal shelters and finding homes for these animals I enjoyed watching Bryce and Dakota's romance blossom. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    Love, Animals and Chocolate!!

    What can be better than chocolate, animals and a hunky guy. This is what you will find in this delightful tale written by Melissa McClone. I fell in love with this story, ok so I do love chocolate, have always had a soft heart for rescue animals (love my little guy, Trooper) and how can you not fall in love with a hunky man, Bryce. Bryce is on a mission, to return to Marietta to get to know his dad better and try to convince him to move to Seattle. He soon meets Dakota, who works at Sage's Chocolate shop and helps at the animal rescue. In her opinion, animals want break your heart like men. Neither are looking for a relationship, but when you throw in Bryce's father "the matchmaker" it hard to resist. This is great addition to Love at the Chocolate Shop. I recommend this book along with the rest of the series.

    Wonderfully Charming

    > > Judging a Book by it's Cover < < Watercolor effect illustration is super cute. Colors are vibrant and very reflective of the fall season. Blurb sounds enjoyable and sweet. > > Looking Deeper < < Third-person POV. Bryce arrived in small-town Marietta, Montana to help his dad recover from a fall that resulted in him breaking both legs. Meanwhile, he planned on convincing his dad to move to Seattle to live closer to him. Walt had no intentions of ever moving from Marietta, so he set into motion a plan to make his son want to leave the city-slicker life for something more charming, particularly a certain generous-hearted girl named Dakota. After literally being left at the alter on her wedding day, Dakota swore all she needed was chocolates and the animals she fosters. Working at Copper Mountain Chocolates and volunteering at the shelter occupy most of her time, but she slowly learned that that may not be enough. Bryce had some truly swoon-worthy moments, but boy... he suffered foot-in-mouth syndrome in a bad way when emotions and tempers were elevated. Dakota was a total sweetheart, willing to put everyone and everything above her own wants and needs continuously. Their relationship developed slowly. There were instant sparks of interest, yes... but they took their time getting to know each other & fearing they'd forever be placed in the other's "friend zone". The secondary characters were a wonderful addition to the cast, varying in personalities, but most were so very likeable. The interaction between cast was believable and the dialogue seemed natural. The plot was not very dynamic, but it was full of content and flowed smoothly. There was little conflict other that what was self-imposed. Resolution was finally found and amends were made leaving no real loose ends for the main couple. Other areas were left open, but I imagine those will be touched on by the other authors in this collaboration (ie: Portia's situation, the mysterious benefactor, and the implied HEA for Bryce and Dakota - not to mention the continued recovery for Walt). There was a little bit of predictability, but it was done in a way that made you happy to be right. This story made me smile, laugh, and even cry. As the owner of a small mammal rescue, I can sympathize with the attachment Dakota felt to her fosters. Overall, this was a clean and charming small-town romance with endearing characters and enjoyable plot. I hope to have the opportunity to read more from this lovely little town. . Rating: [PG-13] ~ Score: 4.3 ~ Stars: 4 (4.5, if I could!) ========================== ⭐ ⭐ **** Disclosure of Material: I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and the Author/Publisher with the hope that I will leave my Unbiased Opinion.
