I was introduced to Steena Holmes through my very good friend CJ Carmichael. I’d read Steena’s books long before I’d met her and I was so excited to meet Steena as she’d been such a good friend to CJ, as well as an inspiration to writers all over. Steena has a huge heart and a passion for readers and writing and she’s one of the most giving authors I know, always willing to encourage and offer assistance.
I am so excited today to share that Steena’s new book is out, and it’s a Tule story, too! Her delicious Charmed by Chocolate is the 6th book in the Love at the Chocolate Shop series which is set in the much loved town of Marietta, Montana.
When Leah ran off to Southern California, she hoped to leave freezing cold winters and unrequited love behind. She was never meant for a small town life and the timing with her longtime best friend–and secret soul mate–was always hopelessly off.
But after a mishap on the hit reality show Charming, Leah declares her love for Wade nationwide and is publicly dubbed “Lonely Leah.” She returns to Marietta to hide at her family’s home–from the media who wants to turn her into a human interest story, from the townspeople upset with her blunder, and most of all, from Wade, who wants to talk.
It took Leah leaving town to wake Wade Burns up to the reality that he’s head over heels in love with his best friend. But now that she’s back home, she’s giving him the cold shoulder. With chocolate and a grand gesture, can Wade charm his way back into Leah’s heart?
