"Bestselling author Melody Carlson captures hearts with a beautifully written romance set just after World War II. It's almost New Year's 1946, a perfect time for Caroline Marshall to start a new chapter in her life. Widowed three years ago when she lost her husband in the war, she has decided to move with her nine-year-old son to join her sister's family in sunny California. Her sister's new house has a basement apartment for Caroline to rent, and though jobs for women are scarce with so many veterans returning from the war, it seems the local chocolate factory is hiring. The apartment turns out to be rather dingy, and the job may be working the assembly line a step down from Caroline's office job as a secretary back in Minnesota. But Caroline is determined to make a great new life for herself and her son. As she goes about making that happen, she keeps running into a handsome stranger at the diner, at church, and he even works for M.G. Chocolates. With a New Year, a new home, and a new job, is Caroline ready to find new love?"-- Provided by publisher.

A short, sweet, predictable whirlwind romance of a widow and a wealthy businessman post world war 2. Makes you wish it was easy to land a rich, charming, and handsome business man. sigh* only in the story books.

Pleasant little romance from Melody Carson. Quick read and with many of her books takes you away for a short time to another place and fills you with good feelings. Good Saturday afternoon read.
