This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Who is the handsome cowboy who comes into small town Marietta's chocolate shop every week to buy a box of chocolates? More importantly...who is he buying the chocolates for? These are the questions sales clerk Rosie Linn asks herself as she waits for her sadly neglected childhood home to sell so she can pursue an exciting new career in L.A.
Rosie finds out the answers the day rugged ranch hand Brant Willingham introduces himself and asks for her help in managing the care of his younger sister. Brant's mother has recently died, leaving him the sole guardian of eighteen-year-old Sara Maria--who has been a puzzle to Brant ever since she began exhibiting signs of autism at age two.
Rosie and Brant come up with a plan. She'll help with his sister if he handles repairs and a new paint job for her old house. It seems the perfect solution, but a new dilemma is created when the couple start spending time together. Brant discovers he doesn't want Rosie to sell and leave, and Rosie fears she will have to choose between love and her dreams.
Melt My Heart Cowboy
Oh, CJ, this is a perfect title for this book. You and Tule know how to jerk the readers tears for sure. I love your story line. I know how the story will end but it still tears me apart. I wasn't sure about the beginning but I learned a lot of new things. Rosie lived alone with her parents passed and her brother in LA. Spoiler. She worked in a chocolate store. She was curious about Brant and finds his sister is in a Care Home. Sara Marie is austistic and 18. Brant still thinks she is 8. Spoiler. Their mom died in a car accident with a deer. She told Brant to take care of his sister but it takes his life away from him. Spoiler. Daniel wants Rosie to come to LA to work their TV scripts together. Major Spoiler. Be prepared and keep your tissues close. This story is hard to put down. It reads fairly fast. I enjoyed this book. I would recommend this for anyone to read. I can't wait for this series next book. Don't let it get away from you. Enjoy! I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.
