Dreaming in Chocolate (Paperback)
"Come for the life-changing chocolates and opinionated apothecary table, stay for the enchanting eight-year old and complicated secrets." --Amy Reichert, author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake
With an endless supply of magical gifts and recipes from the hot chocolate cafe Penelope Dalton runs alongside her mother, she is able to give her daughter almost everything she wants. The one sticking point is Ella's latest request: get a dad. And not just any dad. Ella has her sights set on Noah Gregory, her biological father who's back in town for a few months - and as charming as ever.
Noah broke Penelope's heart years ago, but now part of her wonders if she made the right decision to keep the truth of their daughter from him. The other, more practical part, is determined to protect Ella from the same heartbreak. Now Penelope must give in to her fate or face a future of regrets.
Dreaming in Chocolate by Susan Bishop Crispell is a heartwarming story of love, hot chocolate, and one little girl's wish for her mother.
