We learn in chapter one that Maddie is single and surrounded by friends who are enjoying more domestic lives. Her step-sister, Cynthia is planning a wedding with fiancé Chad, and Maddie feels a bit left out. After making public her New Year's resolutions (never a good idea), she decides to volunteer at the hospital. She expected to run errands and deliver flowers, but instead they put her in the E.R. where people are sick and/or bleeding all around her.
She is assigned to keep Chad, a badly injured bush pilot with a severe concussion, calm and awake. Maddie is a realtor, and Chad has land to sell, so this could be the start of something big. Of course this leads to a romance that makes things a little difficult for our heroine, who is used to breezing through relationships, and it is fun watching their relationship develop into something stronger.
This book was very light reading, mostly character driven, which made it perfect for one of my "I will never fall asleep" nights. While not necessarily a series that I will rush to catch up on, The Chocolate Cure (Love at the Chocolate Shop Book 4) is a book I can comfortably recommend for those who are looking for pure escapism.
