First Comes Marriage by Debbie Macomber

Janine Hartman loves her grandfather but balks at his plan to choose her a husband. Zach Thomas, the intended groom, has recently merged his business with the Hartman family firm, and that's the only Hartman–Thomas merger he wants. But Grandfather has other ideas, ideas belonging to a different place, a different time. "It would be a perfect match," he insists. Zach and Janine don't agree. In fact, they agree on only one thing—that Gramps is a stubborn, meddling old man. But…what if he's right?

There's no wedding in her dreams—or is there?

Sweet Dreams on Center Street by Sheila Roberts (previously published as Better Than Chocolate)

Sweet Dreams Chocolate Company has been in the Sterling family for generations, but now it looks as if they're about to lose it to the bank. That would be a disaster, for the family and for the town of Icicle Falls, Washington. Can Samantha, the eldest daughter and new head of the company, come up with a way to save it? Unfortunately, the fate of Sweet Dreams is in the hands of her archenemy, Blake Preston, the bank manager with the football-hero good looks. It's enough to drive her to chocolate. But Blake's also enough to convince her that (believe it or not) there's something even better than chocolate!
