    Deirdre Cash has returned to her hometown of Marietta MT when her modeling career isn't going the way she had always dreamed it would DeeDee knows that she needs to find some kind of work in Marietta and when Isaac Litton's younger brother Mark who has down syndrome takes a liking to DeeDee he offers to hire her to help care for Mark since he is always busy with work DeeDee who doesn't really have any experience working with handicap still does a marvelous job with Mark with her efforts showing every day DeeDee's gotten Mark to take up exercising by offering treats from the Copper Mountain Chocolate Shop she's gotten him out meeting new people approved his appearance and given him tasks that Isaac would never consider All of this shows Isaac every day just how well DeeDee fits in his and his brother's lives The Chocolate Comeback is the seventh book in the Love at the Chocolate Shop series set in the wonderful small town of Marietta MT While each book in the series features a different couple and can be read as standalones there are also mentions in the stories of previous characters for those that have followed all of the series One of my favorite types of romance reads are when family such as children or in this case Isaac's younger brother are brought in and a relationship is formed around the entire family being meant for each other In this case DeeDee seemed to be perfect for Mark as she's really the opposite of Isaac's overly cautious nature The three together really made a great family which became obvious from the start It was also nice to find a favorite previous character of mine Sara Marie get a lot of mentions in this story so I couldn't help but be a fan I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalleyFor reviews please visit

    I’m loving this whole series and this is another superb read mind you I’ve enjoyed by far the majority of the stories and series based in Marietta Montana and published by Montana BornTule Publishing It is a great read in its own right but I thoroughly enjoyed reconnecting with so many of the now familiar people and places who appear in these stories regardless of who the author is Having said that I don’t think you need to have read any of the earlier books to still appreciate the brilliant writing great characters and enthralling storyline in this novelSometimes you have to leave a place to appreciate how great it is and that was certainly true for Deirdre Cash DeeDee She left with the intention of becoming a famous model but discovered that life isn’t as glamorous or simple as she’d anticipated She’s returned to Marietta much wiser but no longer employed Her sister introduces her to Isaac Litton and his younger brother Mark suggesting that DeeDee could be the person to help care for Mark who has a learning disability associated with Down’s Syndrome whilst Isaac is working Reluctantly he decides to give her a chance DeeDee finds it easy to relate to Mark and soon has him improving his diet taking exercise improving his appearance and generally leading a interesting and engaging life getting to know others in the community socialising and learning new skills As the attraction between DeeDee and Isaac grows she’s given the opportunity to return to modelling Will she return to her previous career or will she give their love and Marietta a chance?This is a delightful story filled with humour love and turmoil as Mark inadvertently brings Isaac and DeeDee together There’s plenty of twists and turns along the way potholes to be avoided on life’s highway en route to their happily ever after The Chocolate Shop and its personnel play key roles in the story and it was great to read how DeeDee’s attitude to life in Marietta has changed as she reconnects with her family and others from her past She even puts her previous experiences to great use for a good causeAs soon as I spotted this book was available I requested and received a copy via NetGalley I just couldn’t resist reading another book in this series especially by this talented author This is my honest review after reading it I’ll certainly be looking out for in this series or by this author in future

    Thanks to NetGalley the publisher and the author for providing me with a free ecopy of this book in exchange for a free and honest reviewAny of you ever read a book and it was just exactly what you needed? Because this book was that for meThe perfect mixture of short sweet cute romance chocolate love diverse characters that are NOT treated as if it's the worst thing to be different beautifully cute characters and great writingI loved DeeDee and what she overcame but at the same time stayed true to her characterI loved mark the little brother with Down Syndrom that felt very realistic to me and I loved how his character was build and supported throughout this storyIsaac the male lead the big btirher the guy that took me a little while to get used to but he wasn't so real life in Many aspects that at the end I loved him even for it One of the biggest things I love about this series and this book is how there is this cast of characters all from different situations all in different places but they all work togetherAnd i love how different diversity factors are brought into this series by including side characters that have some kind of special need But I think never feels forced or as if it is not exactly as it should be to include that character with those needs at that moment In this book especially I loved how DeeDee and marks relationship too first lead for most of the book It gave all characters so much and added so much to the story and I loved how DeeDee and many other people treated mark And I also loved that the author didn't romanticize Down Syndrom She showed the hard and the lighter moments she gave the view into how most people treat those with special need she and the other side of how people should and can treat special needs And it just works It fits and feels natural Because not everyone accepts or wants to accept or accommodate special needs some people can hardly handle people that's understand social cues let alone this experience that don't So to me it makes perfect sense to include them in this kind of book especially since the author didn't try to paint them as the bad guys but simple shown those because that it's just how it is This story just fits it clicks it worksIt's a wondeful story it's a great cute romance book and deserves all the readers so go read it

    Review written April 3 2017Star Rating ★★★☆☆Heat Rating ☀☼☼☼☼ An Advanced Reader Copy ARC of this book was received free via Netgalley for an honest review This series seems to be a good vehicle for closing out family stories within the context of a new series This time it is Snopek's Cash family see also The Chocolate Cure DeeDee is the last of the Cash sisters without a man and she also happens to be without a job Like others in this series she returns to Marietta to lick her wounds Like her twin Maddie she is rehabilitated through the book Callous cares only about herself DeeDee becomes she feels too much and so protects herself DeeDee Isaac and Mark Litton were mentioned briefly in The Valentine Quest and now we get their story too Mark has Down syndrome He is not alone in this series either Love at the Chocolate Shop has featured several characters who have developmental delays or other things that make their everyday lives harder Isaac like Brant before him is now taking care of his brother Mark and moves them to Marietta Also like Brant before him Isaac struggles and agonizes over allowing Mark to step outside some very rigid lines DeeDee comes across as sweet and clueless for the most part if also rather self centered I have no idea how she survived even a month in the cutthroat world of modeling When she starts helping with Mark it's only a matter of time before she and Isaac hit it off There isn't much in the way of steam here It's a couple kisses and a lot of implied want DeeDee's issues with Marietta and the implied issues with the people of Marietta were an underutilized backdrop to the storyI had the same problem with this book as I did with Melt My Heart Cowboy in that issues of developmental delay are handled without any real medical or otherwise knowledgeable supervision Somehow just the mere presence of a nice person fixes a lot of things I found that frustrating since it feels so very unrealistic Both books feature a couple of meltdowns but paint them in a bit of a rosy glow Overall I like this book and DeeDee Isaac and Mark all touched me There is some sadness for Chad and Cynthia Cinderella's Cowboy but there is a lot here that is very uplifting This review is ©April 2017 by Monique N and has been posted to Netgalley

    Once again Roxanne Snopek has written an engaging uplifting romance that is perfect for a lazy afternoon when you just want to unwind with a warm cup of tea and a book in hand What I loved most about this book was that it tackled such a heavy topic developmental disabilities and didn't sugarcoat the reality of it We saw both angles that of the family member and that of an outsider with zero experience joining that family While her first book in this series remains my favorite I think this one gets so deep and made me want to be a better personDeirdre Cash is trudging back to her hometown of Marietta Montana in shame Having run off to New York City to become a high fashion model blowing off the local modeling agency and her family she is forced to admit that she failed Desperate for a job while she wallows in misery she happens upon a god among men Isaac Litton and his noticeably disabled brother Mark Her sister prods her into becoming Mark's caregiver while Isaac tries to run his business but DeeDee isn't sure she is the right person for the job Isaac doesn't think so either Mark is smitten though and DeeDee can't help but fall in love with them both But when her agent calls with a new modeling opportunity DeeDee must decide if her true calling is in Marietta or NYCIt took a while for me to get on board with DeeDee as the heroine of this romantic comedy She initially comes across as vain spoiled and selfish all of which she most certainly was at some point in the recent past And when she makes a joke about Mark at first glance I was ready to throw my Kindle across the room Only my love for Snopek's writing kept me going I'm glad I did because DeeDee underwent a massive transformation and I loved every second of it It was amazing to see her interact with Mark and truly believe in him While Isaac was lovely and fun this story was about Mark and DeeDee When she stands up for him against the town gossip loudly and with gusto I was literally cheering It was truly inspiringI am eager to read about this lovely town and its people Hopefully Roxanne will be writing another in the series but if not I won't hesitate to read the next few books Especially whenever Portia's story is written Can't waitI received a free copy in exchange for an honest review

    This book was such a delight to read Not just because of the way DeeDee softens and changes throughout it or the way Isaac slowly changes his view of many things but because of Mark He’s such a great positive representation of Down’s syndrome and to be honest his relationship with DeeDee was even enjoyable to read than the romance between her and IsaacDeeDee might not have any experience in much of anything – outside of serving coffee and modelling – but the way she connected with Mark and instantly started to fight for him was amazing She doesn’t even have to change her whole personality in order to become a better person In fact she doesn’t change too much at all but she treats Mark as a human being and he responds The friendship between them was great – funny and touching and delightful I loved them togetherDespite Isaac seeming like the better person on paper – his success was driven by his need to care for his mother and brother he instantly accepted Mark into his house and changed his whole life for him in order to let his mother enjoy her freedom after caring for Mark for so long – he’s also the one who has the most to learn Not just because of the way he judges DeeDee on her looks and the way she dresses but also how he sees Mark and the way he treats him Luckily for him Mark is eternally forgiving and despite her sometimes abrasive qualities DeeDee is on his side tooThe scenes where the three of them manage to bond are lovely and the way Isaac slowly comes to appreciate the two most important people in his life in new ways was great to read tooOkay if I’m honest perhaps the way DeeDee lands in Mark and Isaac’s lives and seems to fit so perfectly without any real knowledge or training in Mark’s needs may be a touch too perfect I also would have liked about the troubles DeeDee has with people in Marietta She really wasn’t the nicest person growing up and there’s obviously still plenty of friction around but it mostly gets brushed aside because of everything else going onAway from that this was a lovely read The romance is sweet and slow but this is as much about building a family as chemistry and attraction There is some sadness yet on the whole it’s positive and upbeat and pure enjoyment with chocolate and Marietta and family to make everything better In all it’s another great addition to this charming series and I look forward to seeing who is up nextARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley

    Coming home again while it may have the element of bitter as in bittersweet it can still be so satisfying like a rich piece of dark chocolate on the tongue Such is the lesson DeeDee Cash learns in The Chocolate Comeback by Roxanne Snopek This coming home story has characters who aren’t perfect but still admirable a cause to support with family sticking together during the hard times and a slow building romance to boot Humorous at time then turning serious on a dime made this an unpredictable great read Of course I fell for Mark and then Isaac too as the story progress However what made this a 5 star story for me was reading how thanks to DeeDee Carol Bingley got her comeuppance That should have been done many books ago I guess timing is everythingAn ARC of the book was given to me by the publisher through Net Galley
