Received from Netgalley
SWEET HOME COWBOY is book #9 in the Love at the Chocolate Shop series. I have loved this series from the very first book and each book just gets better and better. I feel a real connection to the lovely little town of Marietta MT and truly wish it were a real place so I could go and live there with these beautiful people. All the stories center around the delicious chocolate shop and will have you craving chocolates as you read them.
Elena Puente is a first grade school teacher in Las Vegas, NV. When she comes across a pack of letters from her great grandfather she decides to head to Marietta MT to meet him and find out what she can about her father. He died in a tragic accident before she was born and her mother never really says too much about him. She hopes her great grandfather will fill in the gaps and answer her questions about her dad. Her mother tries to convince her to stay away from him but Elena is having none of it. Her mother is afraid that the old man will turn Elena against her. SWEET HOME COWBOY will have you all caught up in the twists and turns that Elena goes through and I was holding my breath at one point. I couldn’t wait to finish the story to see what happens.
While Elena is at the chocolate shop she gets roped in to a speed dating event going on and meets Wesley. Elena’s life will never be the same after meeting him. They are both attracted to each other but want different things in life and try to fight their feelings. Just when Elena accepts the fact that she is falling in love with Wes, he cuts her loose and breaks her heart. Will Elena go running back to Vegas and her life there? Will she say the hell with Wes and decide to stay and help her great grandfather in his final years? You are going to have to read SWEET HOME COWBOY to find out! No spoilers from me!
I’m so excited to continue this series. I have fallen in love with this small town and especially the chocolate shop. SWEET HOME COWBOY is a fun quick read that I read in a little more than one sitting. If you enjoy small town light romance this book would be perfect for you. I found myself cheering for Elena and hoping she would find her happy ending. I love how all of the townspeople know things about each other that they shouldn’t and don’t hide it from anyone. Marin Thomas sure knows how to write a beautiful story that hooks the reader from the very first pages. Her writing is easy to read and really entertains the reader.
