I love reading. I haven't always loved it. It's a new hobby, the last two years it's been really vital to me. I love to read fiction, to escape into a good piece of non-reality. Now it can have touchy subjects, thus why I love Jodi Piccoult. But I really like the chick lit. A lot of my finds are based on the cover of a book. Ha ha seems funny. But I totally judge a book by it's cover. First it has to be fiction. Second if the cover looks intriguing, then I'm in to reading what the book is about. If the plot seems fun, then I like to read a few pages in the beginning. Not all writers can grab you in the right way. Some take their time. I like the ones that tickle me in the beginning and then it just gets better and better.
I can be busy during the day and I can't wait to go to bed and read some more of that book! Most authors I can only read one or two books consecutively and then I need a break from their style of writing. But with Sarah Strohmeyer, I have read and read and I just want more. Styles of writing are like personalities, for every personality you have at least one style of writing, maybe more. Thus there are literally thousands of books that are written and continue to be written so the selection is never ending. And each person has a different like and genre so really a person could be overwhelmed thinking of the choices. Luckily I can't get into scary or other genres...... yet.
So this book Sweet Love was again a hit from my fav writer. I found it relatable as the main character is a single parent and lives above her parents. Her mother is in the aging process and her father is never around. So part of me could totally see myself in this character. Her mother signs her daughter up for dessert classes to try and reconnect her with her first love. The one her mother warned her about and forbade him to pursue her daughter when she was 17 and he was 21. However the main character is unaware of that piece of the puzzle. She assumes her friend was behind some of the match making.
So can these two find love again? Was it just a kid thing? Well I don't want to ruin the whole book for you. So you'll have to read it to find out. I can only say I loved it! It's not always the happy ending with Sarah that you would want but it's always very heart warming. Makes you appreciate those relationships you have in your life. And gives you an itch sometimes to try something new. In this case, some dessert recipes that you wouldn't typically make. For me at least that tickled me. Or even to try a cooking recipe out of the norm. So your kids aren't always eating that mac n cheese or meatloaf!
I couldn't wait to pick this book up to see what the characters were up to at each point of the story. I read it in a few days. I ran to the library to get another book. Currently reading Kindred Spirits. And so far all I can say is I want to start a ladies group that makes martini's and chit chats!!!!
