Discover the recipe for love in this delectable holiday romance from New York Times bestselling author, Melody Grace!

Natalie Diaz believes that life is sweet. It’s why she’s leaving heartbreak behind to start a delicious new chapter: opening her dream candy store on Cape Cod for the holidays. Goodbye, break-up blues, hello, handmade Christmas truffles! She’s determined to make her fresh start count, which means no drama, and definitely no distractions—especially not from the mouthwateringly-handsome stranger who keeps crossing her path…

Luke Kinsella wasn’t planning on falling head over heels the moment he stepped foot in Sweetbriar Cove. With his business on the rocks, love is the last thing on his mind, but one look at the mysterious brunette sends his pulse racing… And when he tries her sinfully-sweet candies, he knows one taste will never be enough. He’s used to women swooning into his arms, but Natalie is different. Sure, Luke’s smile makes her knees melt faster than chocolate in the midday sun, but she’s been hurt before. She’s determined to resist the heat burning between them and stay just friends. But as their connection deepens, their red-hot chemistry becomes impossible to ignore. 

Can Natalie take a chance and trust her heart again? And when the past she’s been running from finally catches up with them both, will these two hearts find a way to build a new future together, or will their sugar rush bring them both crashing back down to earth by New Year's Day? 

Find out in the delicious, swoon-worthy romance from Melody Grace!

    Melody Grace definitely didn’t disappoint with this 11th addition to her Sweetbriar Code series. The Story of Us is the discovery of love and learning to trust between Natalie and Luke. Though they’ve both had failed relationships leaving them uncertain, they felt the flow of chemistry upon their first meeting. But for Natalie, it was a long road to letting go of ghosts of the past and allowing Luke to melt the walls she had erected around her heart. Though I’ve read a myriad of fantastic romance novels, not all of the characters had the ability to capture my mind leaving me with sleepless nights. But Luke and Natalie definitely fit that mold as I just didn’t want to stop until I knew how their story was going to end. Once again, Ms. Grace had delivered an entertaining romance with new characters to fall in love with and past characters I already do. It’s always fun to catch up with the residents of Sweetbriar Cove. It’s like coming home for the holidays.
