In Benevolence, Washington, the Lamont family's delectable handmade chocolates are a precious tradition--and always a reason to return home. And for the most rebellious of the three Lamont sisters, they provide a chance to create a tempting new future, complete with delicious happiness Neighbors always ready to help, a laid-back pace--former model Brenna Lamont needs everything that once made her leave her hometown. To help her pregnant sister Addie, Brenna is back to run the family store, Chocolate Haven, and figure out how to start over. But she just can't make the one-of-a-kind Lamont fudge or make herself really fit in. And with handsome restaurateur River Maynard causing her troubles to boil over big time, can Brenna risk going after what she really wants? River already has his hands full helping his ailing foster mother save her ranch for troubled children. He's got no time for anything but reality and hard choices. But somehow, a daily dose of Lamont chocolates is helping his mom feel better. And Brenna's kindness and warmth is making him hungry for an unexpected new dream only she and Benevolence's magical sweetness can make come true . . . Praise for Shirlee McCoy's Apple Valley Novels "A delicious treat. Don't miss a visit to Apple Valley!" --Emily March, "New York Times " bestselling author "Sweet as pie." --"Publishers Weekly" "A wonderful, warmhearted story." --"RT Book Reviews""

My #blitsy and #bookcupidswap and #heas packages were all mailed today. I‘m tagging recipients because the mail system is still struggling- everything mailed priority but could still take a couple weeks.
Is it crazy that I wish there was an Irish or Womans History month swap- but especially Irish.....

candority Fantastic! 💕 2y
KatieDid927 Thanks! When I saw a package from your neck of the woods pop up on my Informed Delivery I had a feeling it was from you. 😉🤗 I‘ve noticed some wonkiness in the system too so I‘m shipping out HEAS tomorrow. 2y
Chrissyreadit @KatieDid927 awesome! I‘m excited to see what you think. 2y

@mabell I was so surprised and touched (on this cold and rainy day) to find a box full of goodies on my front porch...you‘ve made me smile and tear up at the same time by your thoughtfulness. Firstly, the wrapping was so gorgeous that I had a hard time tearing into it. The chocolate is ALWAYS welcome and the washi tape assortment is absolutely beautiful! I haven‘t read either book and am excited about both! But your card and sweet words were 🔻

robinb the icing on the cake. Thank you for thinking of me (and I feel the same way about you and your presence on Litsy!) and for your generosity. You‘ve made a dreary day simply bright and beautiful. 😊⭐️☀️☀️💕😘🤗 2y

UwannaPublishme @PurpleyPumpkin Thank you SO much! This was such a big surprise. I‘ve read many good reviews about both books, so I‘m anxious to crack them open. And the Blind Date is an extra treat! Oh yes, I love Bea and Leah. They just helped me put together a package for my Aunt. You‘ve put a big smile on this face again, my friend! More hugs coming your way. 🤗❤️🤗❤️ 2y

ReadingRover Omg that got there like insanely quick!!! That shark paper is a total hit. Lol I started wrapping your first thing in the dog one and was like wtf am I doing this is the wrong paper. I was about to unwrap and redo it but decided I could just wrap the rest in the sharks. Phew! 😅🦈 Crisis averted. 😂 (I hope the vet wasn‘t too bad a visit and everything is ok. I used to work at a vet so if you need any advice or anything feel free to reach out.) 4y

I spent as much on paper as on presents this year. Good thing I‘m a lunatic who likes wrapping stuff all year round in Xmas paper! 🤪 4y
VeganCleopatra @ReadingRover Thanks! Sadly I wasn't able to find any. I really loved the idea of shark and narwhal paper! And they don't sell it on their website, ugh. Haha, I wrap presents in Xmas paper other times too. 4y
ReadingRover @VeganCleopatra I can‘t believe there wasn‘t any 😢 TJMax also had some really good paper. You should look there too. I got some tacos and a narwhal/unicorn mashup. I‘ve gone way overboard this year. But it‘s sooo expensive online 😫 4y

More lovely #bookmail today - thank you @Sarah83 ❤️ I think this might be the Christmas gift, since I can‘t find “birthday” any where on it. I‘m excited, but I‘ll try and wait till Christmas before I open 😄

#LitsyLove

Sarah83 I am a bit irritated, that only one parcel arrived... 😆 Yes it should be the Christmas one. The birthday parcel has 'happy birthday' written on it, nearby where your thumb is. 😁 4y
Kalalalatja @Sarah83 our postal service is a bit wonky at the moment, so this has probably been categorized as a “letter” while the other might be categorized as a “package”, and then two different delivery systems kick in 🙄 but it will get here at some point! 👍 4y
Sarah83 Quite funny since they are both 'letters' and both sent on the same day. Hope the other one shows up until tomorrow 😊 4y

I had a very good birthday yesterday, and part of it was because I finally got to open my #fallingforfallswap box from the amazing @Yeah_I_Read !!Thanks so much Nina for everything! I didnt have any of the books but have been meaning to get the ravenclaw HP, beren and luthien and city of saints and thieves! The bonfire diffuser smells lovely, and the box of candy was a sweet #surprise! You're awesome! And thanks @Avanders for organizing the swap!

Yeah_I_Read Yay! I wasn‘t sure about City of Saints and thieves because it wasn‘t on your list. Enjoy!! 4y

Adventures-of-a-French-Reader @RadicalReader Thanks ;) It's French, and it means "I cultivate my garden of books". 4y
RadicalReader @JulietteGF are you fluent in French? 4y
Adventures-of-a-French-Reader @RadicalReader French is my native language ;) 4y
RadicalReader @JulietteGF jealous immensely that you speak such an incredible language so impeccably!! How did you learn English? Everyone seems to say it is the hardest language to learn when you‘re fluent in anything besides. 4y
Adventures-of-a-French-Reader @RadicalReader Sorry for my late answer (I've been traveling around)... I've learned English in highschool, then at the university. I would say that English is one of the easiest language to learn when you speak French (you have a lot of Latin words). I have far much difficulty with German. And I've studied (and since forgot) some Swedish and Russian, far more difficult than English. Russian is fun though, it's like learning a new code ;) 4y
