Sweet Haven By Shirlee McCoy



Book Description...

"In Benevolence, Washington, the Lamont family's irresistible handmade chocolates are a cherished tradition--and always a reason to celebrate. And now they're giving the three Lamont sisters, one by one, delicious chances to start again, make a change, and have their sweetest dreams come true...

Neighbors who care, a peaceful routine--accountant Adeline Lamont is glad some things about her beloved hometown never change. But when her grandfather is injured, she has to run the family store, Chocolate Haven, and make its legendary fudge. Trouble is, she can't get the recipe right to save her life--or Chocolate Haven. And she doesn't need her ornery new tenant, Sinclair Jefferson, stirring up the pot with his help--and daring Addie to taste her wild side…

Once Sinclair gets his hapless brother back on track, he's leaving Benevolence for good this time. He's made his life far away from his irresponsible family and their scandals. Trouble is, he can't quite stay away from Addie's optimism, enticing plus-size curves, and kindness to those who need it most. But they don't seem to have a thing in common--except that Addie's passion for chocolate, and for Benevolence, is just as contagious as Sinclair's passion for her. Maybe small-town life has its charms after all…"

"Sweet Haven" by Shirlee McCoy

My Thoughts....

This novel is the first in this series 'Sweet Home Romances'..."Sweet Haven" featuring Adeline [Addie] Lamont and Sinclair Jefferson in the beautiful setting in a small town called Benevolence, Washington.  From the read we find two people who are trying to help a family member.  I liked how this author brings these two together after knowing each other from childhood with Adeline helping her grandfather after a illness, running the 'family store'...Chocolate Haven and Sinclair who had left Benevolence but was back to help 'his brother Gavin get back on track' after his wife has left him. Now, this story will cover a lots of characters from family members to new friendships that come along.  It seems like this heroine has a lots of trouble saying no and this seems to present many problems for her in her daily life but after getting involved with Sinclair will Adeline learn just how wonderful she is and it is alright to say no at times? Be ready for a long interesting well written read of this small town in Washington, some wonderful chocolates, humor, weird relatives, strange town people, mystery/suspense to finding a true love ....and then you have a good story..."Sweet Haven." This is definitely one of those reads that is about family and even 'generosity toward others.'  Since this is a series I am sure we will hear about the other sisters of Adeline Lamont.   Would I recommend this novel?  YES!
