The Chocolate Garden by Ava Miles


Visionary gardener Tammy Hollins is making a new life for herself and her children after a tragic marriage. Plants she understands, but men…well, they’re of the weed variety. She’s started her own landscaping business, catering to her country music rock star brother’s friends. Her first client is sexy, soulful, Alpha hero material, and the one man who tantalizes her and scares her to death.

John Parker McGuiness is a man of many talents, working as a songwriter and lawyer for country music’s biggest stars. He’s drawn to Tammy like no other and hires her as his landscaper, wanting to show her they’re made for each other. When Tammy learns he’s a professed chocoholic, she fashions a magical garden for him—a chocolate garden.

As the garden comes to life, their love for each other grows. When tragedy strikes Tammy’s home, John Parker is willing to move mountains to protect her and her children. Tammy struggles to guard her newfound independence as they use the magic of the chocolate garden to help her children feel safe again. But when secrets from Tammy’s past resurface, can their love and passion survive the memories haunting her?(

My Review

I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own.

I have come to anticipate the newest releases from this author, and I am always pleasantly surprised at how each book turns out.  While it is difficult for me personally to understand some of the situations she found herself in while married, I did feel empathy for her and her children.  I love the close bonds her and her family have. I feel sorry for the person in this book who is hateful and ridiculous in their own right. The relationship between Tammy and John Parker was sweet and entertaining to watch unfold.  I loved their chemistry through thr whole book. He is just so dreamy **insert sigh**. Anyway overall this book has it all, drama, comedy, mystery and romance. You are going to want to read this one!!
