Bonbons and Truffles
by Teri Wilson
Melody Sweet is a lonely, single girl who has a way with chocolate. Her world turns upside-down on Valentine's Day when she simultaneously acquires a precious English Cocker Spaniel puppy and a secret admirer. Will Melody and her puppy, Bonbon, solve the mystery of who is leaving flowers and dog biscuits on her doorstep? Or would she just be better off not knowing?
This is a sweet bit of a story based on a chocolatier who spends the Valentine’s holiday helping everyone else get ready to woo their sweetheart. She’s all alone. Alone, that is, until she gets a new puppy named Bonbon.
And a box of chocolates from a secret admirer.
Is it Hugh? A customer who hits on her? Is it her neighbor, Franklin? Who could it be?
I enjoyed this little taste of sweet perfection. But like any good dessert, it left me wanting more, More, MORE. The author did a fabulous job of creating likeable characters from our heroine, Melody Sweet, to her silly employee, Charlotte, to the merchant across the way. Even Bonbon, the daisy eating dog, has a personality all her own.
Well done, Ms. Wilson.
