According to Rachel Marconi, chocolate heals all wounds. That and throwing darts at pictures of her ex-boyfriend. Burned by yet another bad relationship, Rachel decides to re-prioritize her life, putting her dream to compete on a Food Network Challenge on the top of her list and dating at the bottom, crossed out in red sharpie.
But what’s a girl to do when a certain sexy guy keeps asking her out?
Cue in Graydon Green, a former pro-hockey-player-turned-restaurant-owner. After a lot of persistent and humorous teasing, he finally convinces Rachel to commit to a date. Just when things begin to warm up, threatening notes directed at Rachel arrive. When her bakery is vandalized, Graydon’s protective streak goes on red alert. Is it her obsessive ex-boyfriend stalking her? Or maybe a challenger trying to sabotage the competition?
Either way, Rachel is definitely going to need more chocolate—perhaps drizzled over ice cream and devil’s food cake.
