Carly Westlake who owns her own chocolate spa, decides she wants to lose some weight, because Jake Mitchell who is someone she has had a crush on for years, is moving back into town with his teenage daughter. Her best guy friend (which was her late best friend, Ivy's, husband) Scott is asked by her to help her to out, and he takes it to a level she didn't want, he takes her hidden stashes of chocolate (that she keeps to eat for herself) and tells her to eat pistachios instead, within reason. Magnolia is now living with her and is going to make her some healthy meals.
Carly has a dog named Pinkie. She also has a brother named C.J, who seems to have issues, at least until the end.
A very great read. Very well written.

Carly Westlake is living the dream. She spends her days at a spa (okay, so she owns the place), she's dating a hunk, and she's surrounded by chocolate—milk chocolate, her favorite—that she uses for the chocolate facials that made her spa famous.
But when long buried secrets threaten Carley's business and her friendship with business-partner Tom, she fights like crazy to keep the dream—and the illusions—afloat.
It takes a miracle of grace to get Carley to finally make that bittersweet surrender to love and real life.
