    Fantastic

    So excited to finally have Portia's story and it was fantastic!! After returning to Marietta a year ago, scared and pregnant, Portia has been working hard and determined to give her son Xavi a good life. Everyone in town has been great but she knows she needs to let Xavi's father know about his son. That brings Austin Bradshaw to town. Portia left him a year ago without a real explanation and now he finds out he's a father. He's angry, hurt, and confused but he wants to know his son so he will stick around in Marietta whether Portia wants him there or not. These two have a lot to work out. Don't miss their journey. It's a fun one. I highly recommend this book.

    A fitting end to an amazing series

    Portia's book is the one I've been waiting for since the beginning. I did think she was being stubborn by not talking about her situation at the beginning of the series but with further books, I thought maybe she had gone through something traumatic like sexual assault and didn't want to burden her boyfriend with the resulting baby. Come book 12 and it turns out she was just running scared from her relationship because of her own parents' failed relationship. That ticked me off so I was team Austin all the way. But man, isn't he just such a great guy! If you ask me I think he let her off too easy. Advanced Review Copy provided by the publisher through NetGalley for voluntary review consideration.

    Loved it!!

    Loved this story. I have always been a fan of Portia Bishop in all of the Love at the Chocolate Shop stories and now we finally get to know who the father of Xavi is. We have all fallen in love with Xavi. Portia sends the father of Xavi a letter, Austin, about the baby, Austin shows up in Marietta hurt and bewildered on why Portia left him a year ago. Loved how Austin immediately fell in love with his baby. I enjoyed how they were able to overcome their obstacles to make their relationship work. A side story in the book is that The Chocolate Shop is going to loose their lease, and now they must convince the landlord to renew. So many questions were answered in this book that I have been wondering about. This is a book that I could not put down. Love my Carringan family, I'm not ready to say good bye. A great epilogue to put a finale on the Chocolate Shop stories. I highly recommend.

    beautiful story

    A beautiful second chance romance: separated couple with a baby must learn to trust each other and the love each has for one another to find forgiveness and forge a future together. A sweet story that was hard to put down. Highly recommend!

    Chocolate Lovers Sweet Dream

    Secret baby books are not my favorite romance trope, but I have read and enjoyed this author’s books in the past, so I decided to give this a shot. I’m glad I did. Sweet Dreams, Baby is a very sweet romance examining trust, self-recrimination, and forgiveness. This is a quick, enjoyable read. Portia abruptly left her boyfriend of three years when he left on the rodeo circuit. Afraid that he would cheat on her and leave her like her father did to her mother, Portia decides to break things off before Austin breaks her heart. After settling in Marietta, Montana with her family, she discovers that she’s pregnant. Determined to raise her child by herself, she frets about keeping this secret from Austin. Finally, three months after she gives birth to Zavy, she sends a letter to Austin letting him know that she’s ready to talk to him. Austin, after discovering that Portia kept his child from him, is justifiably pissed. Until they come to some kind of an agreement regarding Zavy, he’s determined to stay in Marietta. Feeling betrayed and hurt, Austin struggles to come to terms with his feelings for Portia. He still loves her, but he’s reluctant to trust her again. And Portia still thinks that their relationship won’t work out, and that he will leave her, so she’s not interested in starting over again. I admit that I was frustrated with some of Portia’s decisions. Yes, what her father did to her mother was inexcusable. But reflecting his behavior on to Austin wasn’t fair. Austin never came across as anything other than loyal, loving, and dedicated to making Portia happy. When she started suffering from panic attacks, she packed up her bags and left him, instead of communicating with him and letting him know she was having doubts about their relationship. This is the first Love at the Chocolate Shop story that I read, and I never felt lost or confused by all of the characters. I have read many other Tule books set in Marietta, and it’s fun to see how everyone interconnects with each other. I found the details regarding the chocolate shop interesting, and loved how the series wrapped up. After Austin and Portia took the time to really listen to each other and set their hurt aside, I was convinced with their HEA. Grade: 4.25 stars
