Henrietta Pittman already has three novel manuscripts lying forgotten in the bottom drawer, so why challenge the Delta Cove Writers Group to write another 50,000 words in 30 days? From Day One things do not go well for her. For instance, there's Matt Watson, her critique partner, who's determined to out-write her with his scorching sex romp, "Drop Dead Blonde". Henny can't even make up her mind what to write! Finally she decides on "The Chocolate Affair" - after all, isn't chocolate every girl’s soother of sorrows; panacea of all ills; comforter; consoler; obsession-maker; greed gatherer?

But widowed Henny is also trying to cope with her feelings for Matt, while contending with her daughters, Louise and Allie, and their burgeoning teenage problems. Then there's her boss, Jay Franklin, expecting her to run his garden center business, but not coping with her suddenly popular innovative garden concept. And her psycho cat, Rissole...

So, can she write "The Chocolate Affair" despite all distractions? Can she cope with new disasters, bringing back terrible memories? And can she do it all without Matt? He's become important to her, but he disappears in strange circumstances at a crucial moment, leaving behind a legacy to help her face the future. Will they face it together?
