The Chocolate Touch (Love at the Chocolate Shop Book 8) by Melissa McClone - Review

Chocolate expert Chantelle Cummings arrives in Marietta, Montana with two goals—sign copies of her new book and research a quaint local chocolate shop. When she meets a gorgeous guy passing out chocolate samples, her visit turns sweeter than she ever imagined. The man melts her heart, but her dream of working in France with her family makes her hesitant to pursue a romance.

Former Air Force captain York Parker has one month before embarking upon a consulting career. He never expected to be selling chocolates, but he’s happy to help his sister and her boss. He also likes spending time with sassy, pretty Chantelle. His new coworker may have the chocolate touch, but he’d rather taste her decadent kisses… until he learns the real reason she’s in town.

Will the truth harden his heart, or will love pave the way to a sweet future?

My Review: 

A sweet, heartfelt romance.

Chantelle Cummings is in Marietta, Montana promoting her new book, The Chocolate Touch, but she also has a hidden agenda.  She is looking for new recipes for her family's chain of chocolate shops in France.  Once she gets what she wants, she will be moving on.

Former Air Force captain York Parker, is in Marietta for a month before he starts his new career.  Until then, he will be helping out at the Copper Mountain Chocolates with his sister.  York and Chantelle meet at the book store where Chantelle is singing her new book.  There was something about Chantelle that York couldn’t seem to forget.  

York had no idea Chantelle would end up temporarily working at the shop too when Portia, a pregnant worker, ends up in the hospital.  They soon find themselves sharing more than just a passion for chocolate.

I wasn't ready for this book to come to an end.  I would have loved a longer story with these two characters.  They had great chemistry together and the story kept me interested the entire time.  Hopefully they will be revisited in a future book.
