Rich in Your Love

Pippa Grant. Montlake, $12.95 trade paper (406p) ISBN 978-1-5420-3767-9

Grant returns to small-town Tickled Pink, Wis., in the charming second installment to her Schitt’s Creek-esque Tickled Pink series (after The One Who Loves You). “Sugar free social media influencer” Octavia “Tavi” Lightly is keeping a big secret from her friends, family, and followers: she’s purchased a dried-up cacao farm in Costa Rica. Secretly philanthropic, she’s hoping to revitalize the area by producing gourmet chocolate and lucratively employing the locals. That is, until Tavi’s imperious grandmother has a near-death experience and insists that the whole screwed-up family come seek salvation with her in Tickled Pink, a town rumored to facilitate the saving of souls. Tavi would just say no—but when her grandmother freezes her trust fund, she has no choice. Small-town plumber Dylan Wright isn’t sure what to think when the Lightly clan descends on the town, but he soon realizes that behind Tavi’s social media persona is a whip-smart woman with absolutely zero self-confidence. Though the pair spark, Tavi doesn’t think she deserves Dylan—and he sets out to prove her wrong. Grant capably combines heat and sweet for an irresistible story—and the descriptions of Tavi’s luscious chocolates will have readers salivating. Tickled Pink proves a town well worth revisiting.
