Melt My Heart, Cowboy by C.J. Carmichael
Love at the Chocolate shop #1
Who is the handsome cowboy who comes into small town Marietta’s chocolate shop every week to buy a box of chocolates? More importantly…who is he buying the chocolates for? These are the questions sales clerk Rosie Linn asks herself as she waits for her sadly neglected childhood home to sell so she can pursue an exciting new career in L.A.
Rosie finds out the answers the day rugged ranch hand Brant Willingham introduces himself and asks for her help in managing the care of his younger sister. Brant’s mother has recently died, leaving him the sole guardian of eighteen-year-old Sara Maria–who has been a puzzle to Brant ever since she began exhibiting signs of autism at age two.
Rosie and Brant come up with a plan. She’ll help with his sister if he handles repairs and a new paint job for her old house. It seems the perfect solution, but a new dilemma is created when the couple start spending time together. Brant discovers he doesn’t want Rosie to sell and leave, and Rosie fears she will have to choose between love and her dreams.
I loved reading Melt My Heart, Cowboy by C.J. Carmichael. Fantastic storyline, the characters work well and are interesting to read. This is the first in the series of the Love at the chocolate Shop. My first thought when reading this book was I needed some Himalayan salted chocolate caramels because these are my favorite types of chocolate to eat and I am really sure that Sage’s chocolates are the best. Ok well on to the story.
This story is about Rosie and Brant. Rosie works part time at the Copper Mountain Chocolate shop and Brant came in every Friday for the last 3 months. Brant bought the same chocolates every Friday. I really felt this story worked well. I also love how this series has rescue dogs and Rosie has a rescue dog name Huck, he is a big part in this story. I would love to have a dog like Huck. The author came up with a really good storyline and was very enjoyable to read. This book coordinate with the rest of the series and makes it easy to want to read them all. I felt this story had it all, love, romance, rescue dog, Marietta, small town charm, chocolate, 2 people destined to be together and of course family, there is always family. I will say that Brant did have a hard time with his sister and was pretty much thrown into taking care of her. I think the author did a great job of incorporating his sister into the story and making her real and the issues are real.
I love the town of Marietta, Montana and love reading about the people who live there. This book was hard to put down, can easily be read in a day or so. I received an advance copy from the publisher via Netgalley.
