In Benevolence, Washington, the Lamont family's delectable handmade chocolates are a precious tradition--and always a reason to return home. And for the most rebellious of the three Lamont sisters, they provide a chance to create a tempting new future, complete with delicious happiness Neighbors always ready to help, a laid-back pace--former model Brenna Lamont needs everything that once made her leave her hometown. To help her pregnant sister Addie, Brenna is back to run the family store, Chocolate Haven, and figure out how to start over. But she just can't make the one-of-a-kind Lamont fudge or make herself really fit in. And with handsome restaurateur River Maynard causing her troubles to boil over big time, can Brenna risk going after what she really wants? River already has his hands full helping his ailing foster mother save her ranch for troubled children. He's got no time for anything but reality and hard choices. But somehow, a daily dose of Lamont chocolates is helping his mom feel better. And Brenna's kindness and warmth is making him hungry for an unexpected new dream only she and Benevolence's magical sweetness can make come true . . . Praise for Shirlee McCoy's Apple Valley Novels "A delicious treat. Don't miss a visit to Apple Valley!" --Emily March, "New York Times " bestselling author "Sweet as pie." --"Publishers Weekly" "A wonderful, warmhearted story." --"RT Book Reviews""

My husband isn‘t home at the moment so I will refrain from tearing opening this sweet surprise anniversary gift that arrived in the mail from a friend until he gets here. I will just wait in eager anticipation. I wonder what could possibly be in here!

Our first anniversary is March 29 and I certainly wasn‘t expecting any gifts!

@Yeah_I_Read I seriously dropped the ball on your package but it should arrive today via UPS so please don't open it until Thursday. The dern UPS store wouldn't give me the box to pack my own stuff and then had the nerve to charge me a service fee for the employee packing. 😂 Needless to say that I will never use them again.

Christine Yes, @ReadingRover - both of these wrapping papers are perfection! ❤️ 11mo
ReadingRover Omg that got there like insanely quick!!! That shark paper is a total hit. Lol I started wrapping your first thing in the dog one and was like wtf am I doing this is the wrong paper. I was about to unwrap and redo it but decided I could just wrap the rest in the sharks. Phew! 😅🦈 Crisis averted. 😂 (I hope the vet wasn‘t too bad a visit and everything is ok. I used to work at a vet so if you need any advice or anything feel free to reach out.) 11mo
Avanders Lol I love the shark paper... and @VeganCleopatra and @Stephuhhnieee 's reactions 😆😆 11mo
VeganCleopatra @ReadingRover so where'd you find the shark paper? 😬 11mo
ReadingRover @VeganCleopatra 😂 Target!!! Omg!!! They had like the best paper this year!!! I went total paper crazy there. Totally overboard!🦈 🍕🦙🐕 🌮 narwhals, 🦅🦢alpacas 🐧 🐈🦔!!! They had everything!!! I spent as much on paper as on presents this year. Good thing I‘m a lunatic who likes wrapping stuff all year round in Xmas paper! 🤪 11mo
VeganCleopatra @ReadingRover Thanks! Sadly I wasn't able to find any. I really loved the idea of shark and narwhal paper! And they don't sell it on their website, ugh. Haha, I wrap presents in Xmas paper other times too. 11mo
ReadingRover @VeganCleopatra I can‘t believe there wasn‘t any 😢 TJMax also had some really good paper. You should look there too. I got some tacos and a narwhal/unicorn mashup. I‘ve gone way overboard this year. But it‘s sooo expensive online 😫 11mo

More lovely #bookmail today - thank you @Sarah83 ❤️ I think this might be the Christmas gift, since I can‘t find “birthday” any where on it. I‘m excited, but I‘ll try and wait till Christmas before I open 😄

#LitsyLove

Sarah83 I am a bit irritated, that only one parcel arrived... 😆 Yes it should be the Christmas one. The birthday parcel has 'happy birthday' written on it, nearby where your thumb is. 😁 12mo
Kalalalatja @Sarah83 our postal service is a bit wonky at the moment, so this has probably been categorized as a “letter” while the other might be categorized as a “package”, and then two different delivery systems kick in 🙄 but it will get here at some point! 👍 12mo
Sarah83 Quite funny since they are both 'letters' and both sent on the same day. Hope the other one shows up until tomorrow 😊 12mo

JulietteGF @RadicalReader Sorry for my late answer (I've been traveling around)... I've learned English in highschool, then at the university. I would say that English is one of the easiest language to learn when you speak French (you have a lot of Latin words). I have far much difficulty with German. And I've studied (and since forgot) some Swedish and Russian, far more difficult than English. Russian is fun though, it's like learning a new code ;) 13mo

CouronneDhiver Yes, very excited about my choices!!! I‘ve never heard of any of them and they all sound amazing. Did you do the email subscription or the hard copy one? @Ashley_Nicoletto Do you think you‘ll stick with it, or was it a one-time deal for you? 14mo
Ashley_Nicoletto @CouronneDhiver I‘ve never heard of mine either so I‘ll stick with it. Especially if I like them. I mainly e-read - mostly due to one bedroom apartment space constraints 🤣 so I did the email and downloaded them to my kindle. One of them was only $2.99. Scoreeee. 14mo
CouronneDhiver Nice! 👌🏽 @Ashley_Nicoletto My library has two of the three books available... I‘ll have to get creative about the 3rd book. Same here - as long as I enjoy the books, I‘ll stick with it too. 14mo

It‘s been a whirlwind of a month and I‘ve definitely been missing my Litsy time (not to mention reading time) - and hope to get back on track in the next couple of days...
In the meantime - a good friend of mine just got back from visiting her family in Brazil and brought me back some bookish goodness! A sweet little book sleeve/bag (and the bag of came in is pretty cool too)! 😊

LeahBergen Cute! 1y
AlaMich That‘s a nifty bag 😊 1y

Alfoster @glitterkitty459 I had to send the cute bookmark that came with it! When you‘re finished either keep the book or Book it Forward to someone else who wanted to read it😀! 1y
glitterkitty459 @Alfoster Sure, will do! Thanks! 😁😘 1y
Velvetsun Hopefully mine hasn‘t gotten lost in the mail. 😟😳 1y
Alfoster @Velvetsun I don‘t think so. The guy at the PO said it would take longer than usual though. Have no idea why. I mailed 4 that day and he quoted me different times for all😳! 1y

Came home today to find
📚library hold for Legendary ready to pick up
📚#penpalsbychance parcel from @Bronte_Chintz
📚#jbuk postcard from @squirrelbrain 🤗💛 thank you so much!

@Bronte_Chintz - I realised I didn‘t do an intro like you did, and just went straight into the story 🤦‍♀️😂 oops!
@squirrelbrain - I love Agatha Christie! That was so thoughtful 😊 I need to get some stationery!

squirrelbrain I was stalking your lists so I could see how much you liked Agatha, hence why I chose that card! 1y
Bronte_Chintz Hahaha! I still feel that you totally smashed the first parcel. Yours was the much better way. I intend to take a picture of your wonderment today. I‘ve been poorly the last few days. 😭🤢# 1y
Cosyreader @squirrelbrain haha that‘s brilliant! You‘ve inspired me to get some funky postcards 😊 1y
Cosyreader @Bronte_Chintz oh no! Hope you feel better soon 💛 1y
Bronte_Chintz @Amy-Laura Much better thank you ducky! 1y

I got package today from Belgium. I don't know what it is? The package is damage and I can see inside🙈 Is this my #sockswap or not? @Dulcinella @JPeterson

#surprise #package

Dulcinella I think it is @maich 1y
maich @Dulcinella I usually write #sockswap or something on the package. Because you haven't write I was in doubts. Sory! 1y
Dulcinella No problem. I sent my son to the post office with instructions, but must have been not clear enough 😉 1y

Hi Littens!
I was at the post office today morning and sent this #sockswap package to the UK.
@jenniferw88 it will arrive a little late. Sorry! I need to order books international and yesterday came the last book.
