New Year's resolutions are great. Announcing them in a crowded bar, with a chocolate martini in her hand? Not Maddie Cash's finest moment. It's time this new realtor got serious about her life and this time, she means it.

Overview

No more chocolate! No more meddling! No more men!

New Year's resolutions are great. Announcing them in a crowded bar, with a chocolate martini in her hand? Not Maddie Cash's finest moment. It's time this new realtor got serious about her life and this time, she means it.

But when hospital volunteering lands her at the bedside of bruised and battered Mick Meyer, who has no knowledge of Maddie's reputation – and no memory of the kiss he begged from her during that long, pain-filled night, her best-laid plans are put in jeopardy. It's not just his sweet tooth that's tempting her.

The hunky bush pilot with the concussion has an old family property to unload. Making this sale could be Maddie's professional salvation. But when Mick turns on the charm, she's in danger of forgetting all her best intentions... on chocolate... on meddling... and especially on men.

Enjoyed the Characters and story

I really enjoyed this book! It's always fun to read a story set in Marietta, Montana. And if nothing else, the descriptions of the chocolate is reason enough to read any of the Chocolate Shop books. I'm looking forward to reading more in the series. What I really liked about this book was that the hero was so completely vulnerable. He was really thrown for a loop by the accident and just could not be the take-charge alpha male that you know he wanted to be. It gave Maddie a chance to be herself with someone instead of having to put on a good show. Even though she was unsure of herself, they were getting through his recovery together, with neither one of them trying to dominate the other. Slight SPOILER ALERT: And when the dark moment came, Mick didn't stomp away in a huff over hurt feelings or misunderstandings. He kept believing in Maddie and tried to make her life better. Now that's a perfect romance!

loved this wonderful story: Maddie finally gets her act together and is reluctant to fall in love, but the more time she spends with Mick, the harder it is to say no to love and a future. Add in a little chocolate, and all resolutions are off! Love cannot be denied!

At Midnight on New Year’s, Maddie Cash announces her New Year’s Resolutions to all at Grey’s Saloon. No Meddling, No Chocolate, No Men. It doesn’t take long for it to make it through town to her Mom, and Maddie realizes, after waking up with a hangover, that it is time to get serious about her life and her job as a realtor. Part of getting serious is volunteering at the hospital, where she is on duty when they bring in a victim of a plane accident, who just happens to be part of her sister’s fiance’s bachelor get away, so she is pressed into service to help him. Mick Meyer ends up in the hospital in pretty bad shape. The angel in the ER is the only thing that keeps him going. Lucky for Maddie, he doesn’t remember her giving in to his begging for a kiss. When she is given an ultimatum at work, the property Mick needs to sell just may help her keep her job. She just has to stick to her resolutions! Maddie is a good person, despite what others perceive as her flightiness. She can’t stand the thought of someone buying a house that isn’t right for them. She helps Mick whenever he needs it. She fights hard to stick with her resolutions and deny her attraction to Mick and her love of chocolate. This is book 4 in the Love at the Chocolate shop series and it is a truly sweet romantic read. I really like Maddie, she is a genuine person, flaws and all. Mick has been a wanderer, but finds himself at home with Maddie and in Marietta.

This was a great story. Maddie made some impulsive new years resolutions that would come back to haunt her. She is determined to be a better person. As she is volunteering at the hospital, she ends up meeting and helping Mick, a pilot who had an accident and needs to recuperate. He also has some land to sell, which would help Maddie save her realty job. Maddie and Mick were wonderful characters. She really brought out the best in Mick and helped him with his rehab from the accident. The only thing that would have made this story better would be if the book came with some of the wonderful chocolates they described in the book.

**Caution do not read this book without chocolate by your side.** First of all I enjoyed The Chocolate Cure. My problem was more with me than the book itself. Maddie Cash was a secondary character in Cinderella's Cowboy and I spent a lot of time trying to remember her. All I could remember was that I wasn't a fan of hers. But The Chocolate Cure finds her attempting to be more mature and less selfish. In the past, Maddie was more of the party girl/arm candy type but now she wants to change her ways. She wants to be taken seriously and that means having a job, living on her own, and taking care of herself. Maddie has even made New Year's resolutions to give up meddling, men, and chocolate. Let's be honest here, her meddling isn't really meddling. Maddie is a realtor with a conscience and has a tendency to say if a house isn't right for a client. As far as men….Yes she's probably gone through half the population of Marietta, Montana. But a girl has to kiss a few hundred frogs, before she finds her prince. Chocolate….Okay, I have no idea what she was thinking. Maddie’s good deeds lead her to volunteer at the local hospital. On her first day, she ends up being assigned Mick Meyer, a friend of her future brother-in-law. Mick has just had an accident involving his Cessna and is pretty beat up. Turns out he has a concussion, among other problems. But there's something about Maddie that eases his pain. With no family around, Maddie feels as if she has to stick around, keep him company, and watch over him. The two become attracted to each other. But Maddy refuses to give in to her attraction because she wants to be a new person. A lot of the book was spent on Mick and dealing with the aftermath of his accident. But this allows you to see what a kindhearted and caring person Maddie is. Roxanne Snopek has written a nice, sweet (no pun intended) romance. My biggest complaint is that there isn’t an epilogue to truly wrap up the story. **Received a copy from Tule Publishing and voluntarily reviewed the book.**

After a disastrous New Year's Eve, Maddie Cash is determined to be a better person. She's giving up chocolate, meddling and men, but fate has other plans for her. When she volunteers at the hospital she helps Mick Meyer. He was injured in a freak accident with his plane. He and Maddie form an immediate bond. Can this be the start of something special? I liked Maddie. She's sweet and is working hard to be a better person. I admire her spunk and caring. Mick never stays in one place long. He finds himself drawn to this special woman. I was happy that Marietta and his inherited property were calling to him. I was caught up in this feel good story. I enjoy coming back to Marietta and visiting Sage's chocolates. Roxanne Snopek gave us interesting characters and a touching story. I cared for Maddie and Mick. I wanted them to find the happiness that they deserve.

The Chocolate Cure by Roxanne Snopek is book number four in the Love at the Chocolate Shop series. This is Maddie Cash and bush pilot Mick Meyer's story. I thoroughly enjoyed Maddie and Mick’s story! Their romance was a fun romance to read. I loved the humor, emotional aspects, and the sweet romance. A great read that left me still thinking about their story. Loved it! I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Roxanne had me laughing the whole way with Maddie Cash and Mick was just as sweet with a real rough, outdoorsy sexy side.. it was nice to see the chemistry combust. Received an ARC for an honest and fair review.

Maddie Cash is trying to be a good adult per her New Years Resolutions of no chocolate, no men and no meddling. That is until her first volunteer shift at the hospital lands her a task keeping bush pilot Mick Meyer awake for the night. I loved this book. It was sweet and fun and the chocolate descriptions made my mouth water. It was also nice to have some more pieces of the background puzzle that is Sage's niece Portia.

This is a sweet book (pardon the pun) that I enjoyed reading. We meet Maddie as she's about to make a spectacle of herself on New Year's Eve, including making several new year's resolutions that no one believes she can keep. As part of Maddie's plan to improve her life, she begins volunteering at the hospital. She's in the ER when Mick is brought in after an aviation mishap. For some reason, despite being strangers, she is the only one who can keep him calm and ends up spending most of the evening at his bedside. What follows is an interesting relationship where they feel oddly connected to each other, but not really understanding why. Until the end of the novel, this felt overly contrived to me - it just didn't seem to flow naturally. It's purely my subjective opinion and a departure for me from the author's other books. Usually her character relationships draw me right in and keep me hooked. Fans of the author will want to read this book. And yes, it is a sweet novel both in chocolate playing a feature role and in the tameness of the romance. Readers that appreciate a hint of romance instead of a more explicit portrayal will enjoy this book.

Another Sweet Installment to this Chocolate Shop Series! > > Judging a Book by it's Cover > Looking Deeper Bush pilot, flew in for Chad's stag weekend and used his newly-inherited fishing cabin as party base only to become injured while trying to secure his Cessna before a storm. No real roots, prefers to travel and keep on the move. Now he's grounded until further notice. Maddie ~> Free-spirit and kind-hearted, often put everyone else ahead of herself even if that meant she was seen as flighty, irresponsible, meddling, a tease. She considered herself to be a bad sister, daughter, and friend. The nice one, but unable to do anything right. She needed something to ground her and a night in the ER as a volunteer just may be what she needed. Secondaries ~> Various citizens of Marietta, Montana, plus cameos from outside family. Sufficient plot fillers. Chemistry & Compatibility ~> Instant, but between his concussion and her resolutions, nothing was acted upon. This is a CLEAN romance with no more than a couple stolen kisses. Dialogue and Interaction ~> Natural and realistic. Plot & Flow ~> The plot was light, cute, fun. There was a fair amount of angst, but the lead couple were enjoyable as individuals as well as as a couple. Conflicts & Resolutions ~> Other than the above mentioned New Year resolutions and her determination to prove to people that she can stick to being responsible and his "parking accident", concussion, and subsequent recovery, there's not a lot standing in their way... unless you want to also consider her smarmy co-worker or unethical boss. No loose ends are really left, though, in the end. Predictability ~> Virtually nil. No big surprises. The plot could have taken a different path for Maddie and I'm a little sad to see that it didn't. Conclusion ~> While the couple seem to receive an implied HEA, the ending felt awfully rushed and untidy. Since each book revolves around a completely different couple and only loosely tied to the others via the chocolate shop and the town in which they reside, I'd say that this book could be read as a stand-alone fairly well. However, to gain the maximum experience that the series has to offer, I'd suggest reading it from the beginning. .

Love continues to bloom at Marietta's chocolate shop. On a drunken whim Maddie Cash makes a New Year's resolution that is sure to fail as soon as she utters it! Giving up men, meddling, and chocolate? What was she thinking! Since she made this resolution in such a public way, she has no choice but to try her best to get through it. Then she meets Mick Meyer and things really get interesting. This is a wonderfully fun read and one I would highly recommend.

The perfect story to start your New Years, with Maddie making her own New Year resolutions, No Chocolate, No Men and No Meddling. Well you know she will fail, with plenty of laugh out moments and the bantering between her "guy" friend, Mick. Mick is an injured pilot that Maddie meets while volunteering in the local hospital and helps nurses him back to health, with some of her favorite chocolate from Sage's Chocolate Shop. Maddie just wants to make everyone happy, she really doesn't mean to meddle, but oh how I loved it!! How can she deny the chemistry between Mick, but she tries very hard to. This is a great addition to the Love at the Chocolate Shop books, the few things in common is romance, chocolate and all of the wonderful friends of Marietta. Well written with great humor, that will have you laughing out loud.

I really loved this fourth entry in the Love at the Chocolate Shop series, Chocolate Cure by Roxanne Snopek. In this book, realtor Maddie Cash resolves to give up drinking, chocolate, and men while standing on top of the bar in Gray’s Saloon on New Year’s Eve. That mean she needs to get serious about her life and stick to it. She must close a deal before the end of the month or lose her job. Mick Meyer is a hunky bush pilot with a concussion and an inherited family property to unload. Maddie ends up at Mick’s bedside in the ER on her first, and last, night of volunteering at the hospital. She continues to visit and assist Mick in his recovery. The only problem is the attraction between these two, fueled by chocolate and chemistry. This was a fun, wonderful and entertaining story with very loveable and authentic characters you want to cheer on, hoping for that happy ending. The characters were well written with complex characteristics. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I am so looking forward to the next entry in the Love at the Chocolate Shop series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

A fun quick read. Maddie Cash has decided to make some changes in her life. But she made the mistake of announcing her New Year’s resolutions in public. No more chocolate, meddling or men. Now everyone in Marietta is watching to see if Maddie can keep her resolutions. With her boss breathing down her throat about making a sale, she needs to focus on work even harder now. She is given until the end of January to sell a house or she will be unemployed. Pilot Mick Meyer was admitted to the hospital after a mishap with his plane which ended getting a concussion. He arrived while Maddie was volunteering in the ER. They quickly became friends with Maddie showing up to help Mick with his rehab. When Maddie learned Mick was going to sell his uncle’s lake house, Maddie set her sight on making this sale. Maybe then her boss will see she is serious about her job. When everything starts to fall apart in Maddie's life, Mick is there to help her pick up the pieces. Mick didn't expect to fall for Maddie, and now he has to convince her to let go of her insecurities and accept the fact that he is not like other men. The book moved along at a fairly good pace. The writing was entertaining, the plot fun and characters were likable. Maddie and Mick had great chemistry. The book ended a bit quick for me. I would have loved a stronger ending
