The Parker Family Trilogy : Love at the Chocolate Shop

Posted March 30, 2021 by Marsha in Connection to another series, Contemporary Romance, Modern Western Romance, Series, Small Town Romance / 0 Comments

A few years ago there was an amazing year-long series set in one of my favorite fictional towns of Marietta, Montana called Love at the Chocolate Shop.

Now you can find three of those delightful stories in a connecting trilogy within that longer series called The Parker Family Trilogy.  Here’s what to expect:

A Thankful Heart
Bryce Grayson comes to Marietta to convince his dad to leave with him to the city, but his escape plan goes astray when he meets Dakota Parker, whose sweet kisses put the chocolate she sells to shame. He has until Thanksgiving to decide if he should be the one to move to Marietta. But could he be happy living in such a small town?

The Valentine Quest
Dustin Decker makes a strategic pact with the prim, bookish Nevada Parker for a multi-day race called The Valentine Quest. But with a kiss, their unlikely alliance turns into something more…and soon racing isn’t the only thing on their minds. As the finish line nears, they must decide if the grand prize is worth more than what they’ve found together…or if one of them will walk away empty-handed—and broken-hearted.

The Chocolate Touch
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 the gorgeous York Parker passing out chocolate samples, her visit turns sweeter than she ever imagined. But when York learns she’s moving abroad, will the truth harden his heart, or will love pave the way to a sweet future?

Now, I’ve linked the titles of these to reviews I did when the long series first came out – but if you love trilogies or connecting stories then you might want to check this out (although the entire series is well worth the read – just saying).

Check out your favorite spot to pick up Marietta, Montana stories – Mine is through my Kindle, that link is on the title graphic for your convenience.

They both know the pain of loss and how to protect their hearts…but fate has a way of stepping in…

Her perfectly controlled life falls apart when a kitchen fire lands young widow Elle Brooks in the muscled arms of handsome rancher and veterinarian Brody Tate. The fire forces Elle to move in with her friend Bryn and her motley collection of rescue horses and other animals on the Heaven Can Wait Horse Rescue ranch, where she volunteers. Spending time with the hunky cowboy and his spunky 10-year-old daughter, Mandy, as they rehabilitate the beautiful horses, reminds Elle of all she lost in a car crash years ago. She can’t deny the feelings that being close to Brody is stirring in her.

As a widower himself, Brody puts all he has into being a good dad for his spirited daughter. He hasn’t let women and romance even enter his mind until he meets Elle. And now, this woman is all he thinks about. Spending time with her is shaking up the calm stasis he had worked so hard to achieve, but he can’t seem to stay away.

Brody and Elle both know the pain of losing someone they loved, and neither planned ever to let themselves fall in love again. But fate has a way of stepping in, and what started with a small fire now burns hotter than either one could have imagined. Can these two wounded souls take a chance on each other and risk their hearts again?

Janie Adams has been a single parent to her nephew since he was a baby. Fifteen years later, she’s finally found out who his father might be, so the two of them travel across the country to find him. She’d do anything for this kid. But when they arrive in the small town of Wishing River, Montana, and Janie finally meets the ruggedly handsome cowboy she’d been told had abandoned his son, his shocked response changes everything.

Aiden Rivers can’t dispute this is his kid when he sees his own features staring back at him, but he had no idea Janie’s sister was pregnant when she left him. He didn’t even know she had a sister—clearly, they’d all been lied to. Now he has fifteen years of fatherhood to make up for and no idea how to be a dad. This was never in his plans.

Janie sticks around to help him ease into parenting, everything from showing him how to lure a sulky kid out of his bedroom to keeping up with the latest teen-speak. Together, they surprisingly make a good team, this city girl and country boy. But when the past catches up with them, Aiden and Janie must decide what’s best for the boy who’s connecting them, not only for each other…which could mean splitting them apart.

As she transforms into a confident and talented professional, she gains the attention of the show’s handsome and charming leading man, Ryan Roberts. But just as Devon’s star is in full ascent, Jason resurfaces.
