Sheila Roberts

Sheila Roberts lives on a lake in the Pacific Northwest. She's been writing since 1989, but she did lots of things before settling in to her writing career, including owning a singing telegram company and playing in a band. When she's not speaking to women's groups or at conferences she can be found writing about those things near and dear to women's hearts: family, friends, and chocolate.

Better Than Chocolate

Better Than Chocolate

How Sweet It Isn't!

Sweet Dreams Chocolate Company has been in the Sterling family for generations, ever since Great-Grandma Rose literally dreamed up her first fabulous recipe. But now it looks like they're about to lose Sweet Dreams to the bank—and that would be a disaster, not only for the family but for the town of Icicle Falls, Washington. Can Samantha, the oldest daughter and new head of the company, come up with a way to save it?

After some brainstorming with her mother and sisters, inspiration strikes. They'll have a chocolate festival! Time's running out, but the Sterling women are determined and the town's behind them, so everything’s bound to go smoothly...

Or not. Events seem to be conspiring against Samantha, and her mother's attempts to help aren't helping. To make matters worse, the fate of her company is in the hands of her arch-enemy Blake Preston, the bank manager with the football-hero good looks. It's enough to drive her to chocolate. But Blake's also enough to convince her that (believe it or not) there's something even better than chocolate.

Merry Ex-Mas

Merry Ex-Mas

Between Yuletide traditions, winter sports and mistletoe everywhere, Christmas is the best time of year in Icicle Falls, Washington. But this year it's not so merry for three of its residents.

Cass Wilkes, owner of the Gingerbread Haus bakery, was looking forward to her daughter Danielle's wedding...until Dani announced that she wants her father, Cass's ex, to walk her down the aisle. With every B & B full, it looks like he and his trophy wife will be staying with Cass.

Her friend Charlene Albach has just seen the ghost of Christmas past: her ex-husband, who left her a year ago, running off with the hostess from her restaurant. Zelda's, to start a new life in Seattle. Now the hostess is history and he wants to kiss and make up. Hide the mistletoe!

And bring out the hot buttered rum, because the holidays aren't so easy for Ella O'Brien, either. Newly divorced, she's still sharing the house with her ex while they wait for the place to sell, and still fighting over all the things they fought over when they were married.

But Christmas has a way of working its magic and anything can happen. Merry Ex-mas, ladies!

The Snow Globe

The Snow Globe

On a blustery afternoon, Kylie Gray wanders into an antique shop and buys an enchanting snow globe. "There's a story behind that snow globe," the antique dealer tells her. The original owner, he explains, was a German toymaker who lost his wife and son right before Christmas. When the grieving widower received the handcrafted snow globe as a Christmas gift, he saw the image of a beautiful woman beneath the glass-a woman who would come into his life, mend his broken heart and bring him back to the world of the living. For years, the snow globe has passed from generation to generation, somehow always landing in the hands of a person in special need of a Christmas miracle.

Kiley could use a miracle herself. This year, all she wants for Christmas is someone to love. A hopeful shake leads her on an adventure that makes a believer out of her. When Kylie shares the story of the snow globe with her best friends-two women with problems of their own-they don't believe it. But they're about to discover that at Christmastime, sometimes the impossible becomes possible and miracles really do come true.
