Sweet Home Cowboy
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
When Marietta newcomer Elena Puente is coerced into attending a speed-dating event at the popular Copper Mountain Chocolate shop, she’s blindsided by a serious attraction to local cowboy, Wesley Banks. Still recovering from a broken engagement, the first-grade teacher from Las Vegas isn’t looking for romance. She’s in Montana to get to know the great-grandfather she never knew existed until she found some hidden family letters. Judge Kingsley is a grouchy recluse and he’s far from welcoming, but Elena is determined to stay in town long enough to give his neglected estate on Bramble Lane a facelift. Elena’s resolve to avoid romance is tested when she discovers Wesley is the caretaker of her grandfather’s rural property. Soon, she and the cowboy are attending more speed-dating events at the chocolate shop and she’s seeking his advice on how to deal with his ornery boss. Local gossips wager the old Judge will run Elena out of town before anything serious develops between her and Wesley. But Wesley’s a determined man, too, and he’s betting Elena belongs in Marietta forever…with him.
This one was such a fun cute read you can't help but finish it smiling. Elena Puente comes to Marietta in spectacular fashion. First she's almost spotted on the side of the road in only her panties and bra, then she makes the five mile trek into town only to be swept up into the town's first speed dating event. Bonus to the speed dating, she meets sexy cowboy Wesley Banks. Now for the reason she came to Marietta to begin with. To meet her biological great grandfather.
This story is so cute and definitely one you want to read. I highly recommend it.
Sweet Story of Love
I loved Sweet Home Cowboy by Marin Thomas, book nine in the Love at the Chocolate Shop series. Las Vegas teacher Elena Puente discovered hidden letters giving away that she had a great-grandfather living in Marietta, Montana. Since her father died before she was born and her mother had no family, she knew she had to meet this one and only relative. As she enters Marietta, she accidently walks in on the start of the Speed Dating event at Sage’s Chocolate Shop and convinced to stay by Wesley Banks. Wesley is a cowboy, ranch manger, oversees delinquent teens, and handyman to Judge Kingsley. The Judge is a curmudgeon, never accepting help and not wanting to be seen. He also happens to be Elena’s long lost great-grandfather. I loved how Wesley and Elena felt an attraction from the start yet accepted each other’s differences. I also admired the way Elena stood up to her great-grandfather and getting him to see the importance of fixing up his run-down house. The fact that both Elena and Wesley told the Judge that love surpassed family expectations. These two were perfect for each other.
This was an enjoyable book with likeable and authentic characters. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. Ms. Thomas drew me in and did not let go until I read the last page. I highly recommend this book to other readers and I for one look forward to the next book in this series.

eet Home Cowboy! Funny! Thoughtful! and Surprising!
Elena has true grit! To go across the country to see her great grandfather that she had never met surprised.
She had me totally laughing with the hiding in the ditch in her undies and bra! And the perception that Judge Kingsley, had filled Thayne gap with Wesley! I am wondering if a story will come about Bitterfoot Farm and what Wesley and Elena could do with the kids that they help!! I was wanting more complexity of that plot through in.
Can't wait to see how the series wraps up!!
