Love awaits you in Lucky Harbor . . .Simply Irresistible                                                   After losing her boyfriend and her job, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim her inheritance-a ramshackle inn nestled in the little town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.

I love hot chocolate and that sounds so decadently sweet.

This book of the sisters restoring the country inn reminds me of those lovely hallmark or lifetime channel movies. Sounds great!
