Series Spotlight - "Life in Icicle Falls" by Sheila Roberts

I've started a new series of books called "Life in Icicle Falls" by Sheila Roberts.  This series was recommended from a friend, she thought I would enjoy the books and she was right!  I've started the first book in the series and its really interesting!   I like the characters and the storyline about Sweet Dreams Chocolates ( the Chocolate Company that has been in the family for several generations ).  
There is a small town feel to this book which I like, and the characters really draw you into the story.

The first book in this series is called "Better than Chocolate.  There are 6 books in this series, with a book called "Welcome to Icicle Falls" numbered 0.5.  

Book #7 in this series is scheduled to release July 28th, 2015.

About the book:
Sweet Dreams Chocolate Company has been in the Sterling family for generations, ever since Great-Grandma Rose literally dreamed up her first fabulous recipe. But now it looks as if they're about to lose Sweet Dreams to the bank—and that would be a disaster, not only for the family but for the town of Icicle Falls, Washington. Can Samantha, the oldest daughter and new head of the company, come up with a way to save it?After Samantha does some brainstorming with her mother and sisters, inspiration strikes. They'll have a chocolate festival! Time's running out, but the Sterling women are determined and the town's behind them, so everything's bound to go smoothly….or not...
