4.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth the Read 25 Oct. 2014
By Esther Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A beautifully crafted romance! It took a couple of chapters to capture my interest (probably mostly because I'm a suspense person, and this book doesn't have the suspense element I'm used to), but once it caught me, did it ever keep me! I loved watching the characters deal with being confronted by the very frightening personal tragedy hanging ever present over their blossoming love, and seeing how each of them dealt with the nightmarish possibilities. As someone who deals with a chronic and life-threatening disease, myself, I know how scary these things can be, and Ms. Sookoo captures that fear almost perfectly, to the point of bringing me to tears, because I can identify with the questions the heroine, Clara, grapples.

My only criticism of the book would be that it occasionally got a little preachy about the merits of "making the most out of every moment." As someone who deals with a chronic illness, I have that little piece of advice shoved in my face at my worst times, when I'm in relapse, and it tends to grate on the nerves after a while. It was the one thing that took me out of the story, at times. But for anyone not dealing with a chronic or life-altering illness, I'm sure it wouldn't have that impact, and in any event, the story is very worth reading.

Very sweet story! Love the HEA!
5.0 out of 5 stars I laughed, I cried, and I sighed. What a wonderful story. 26 April 2013
By D. Antonio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Contemporary romance. Clara is a cancer survivor. Her experience with the disease has forced her to take a look at life and decide how she wants to live it. She is intimately aware that life can be short. Her philosophy is "When life gives you lemons, use them for lemonade or let them sour your life." She doesn't want to live a sour life and makes some damn fine lemonade. She has moved to the small town of Bridgewater, Indiana where she's opened up the Cute as a Button B & B.
When Jake returns to Bridgewater, the town he left skid marks leaving, for his friend's wedding he puts the wedding party up at the Cute as a Button B & B. He can't figure out whether Clara is cute or crazy but he wants to get to know her better. He is amazed by her attitude and yearns to understand it. But can they have a future? He lives in the big city and her illness is a factor to be considered.
Sandra Sookoo writes so many genres I never really know what I'm getting when I pick up one of her books other than a great story. This could have been really sappy and or saccharine but it was neither. Both characters seemed very real to me. I laughed, I cried, and I sighed. What a wonderful story.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 29 Oct. 2011
By LAS Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com

In this month of Cancer Awareness, Sandra Sookoo's Embracing the Lemonade Life, encompasses the subject with skill and compassion. Her heroine, Clara, is in remission when Jake comes into her life and kicks the jacks from beneath her `live for the moment' philosophy.

The owner of the small-town bed-and-breakfast, Clara fled from the city to a place where she'd find community support and friendship, and it's not long before Jake discovers she's treasured by the locals. The same locals and environment he fled when he left school and found success in the city.

This author uses Jake's ignorance of Clara's illness to inform her readers of the profound effects of living with cancer. Information readers may `know' about from general information. By using Jake's point of view and creating such a powerful empathy for her heroine, Ms Sookoo's skillful presentation of the medical information and its impact on a patient and their loved ones influenced this reader.

Clara and Jake have their faults and their fears. The secondary characters, tiny though their on-stage appearances are, have a definite impact on them both, influencing their actions and assumptions.

Ms. Sookoo's fluent writing style entices. Her gift to create intense emotions and visual settings drew this reader in to such an extent that returning to reality at the end of the story was mind-jerking. And yet around the serious message the author offers many laugh-aloud moments.

Her depiction of Jake's journey from disillusionment to sharing Clara's belief in `living for the moment' is handled with great compassion.

For Clara, Ms Sookoo teaches her to accept help from those who love and care for her instead of assuming they are acting out of sympathy.

In Embracing The Lemonade Life the author takes a hard-hitting subject and weaves a tender tale of love, hope, and joy that will stay with you long after you turn the final page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and Uplifting 24 Dec. 2011
By Wordwonk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
"Embracing the Lemonade Life" is like a lump of sugar melting on the tongue. It's sweet and delicious and when you're finished you remember it for a long time.

Jake goes home to the small town he hoped he'd left behind forever--only he's got to play Best Man at his last single friend's wedding. While there, he meets an ebullient, sunny woman who is determined to live life to the fullest. He's drawn to Clare despite himself, and despite the fact her future is uncertain. You see, Clare has cancer, but instead of living with a cloud over her head, she chooses to see the joy in every moment she has left. Joy is exactly what Jake needs.

Making lemonade from lemons is the theme of the story, and "Embracing the Lemonade Lift" is a heartwarming glimpse into the lives of two people who need each other. As Tennyson would say "'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."

And having read Sookoo's novel, I'm the better for it.
