An enjoyable small town romance with easy to like characters and great dialogue. Funny in all the right places and although I guessed the outcome fairly easily (come on...it's not difficult with these types of romance) I didn't mind a bit because it's the journey to get to the outcome rather than the event itself that I enjoy the most. I love seeing how it all comes together and gets knotted up with obstacles and misunderstandings. I love all that!

Good story and well written and I'd happily read more by this author.

Chloe, a trainee chef, gets a new job cooking for an eccentric elderly lady. This allows her to escape from an unhappy relationship. Predictably, the eccentric lady's grandson is a hunk but as he is strictly her employer, love is out of the question. The author fabricates all sorts of unlikeLy situations for the two of them to get together, panting and lusting for each other but love is unrequited at least as far as I read. I got fed up with the will he, won't she and gave up. 

PS if you want to read this book, make sure you have your American dictionary to hand.

By Book Gannet TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 23 Aug. 2016
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book was a great comfort read, mixing a little fish-out-of-water feeling with small town antics, a big, crazy family and unexpected friendships, not to mention an opposites attract romance that might just be love at first sight and a secondary romance that isn’t quite ready for second chances. On top of all of this, Chloe is finally finding out just who she is and wants from life. It’s easy and enjoyable and even has cupcakes to top it all off.

Chloe is the main focus in this book. Not just because of her romance with Devlin, but because of her friendship with Daisy and the way she grows and changes throughout. She’s a woman who has never really had to take care of herself before, or really needed to work out who she is, but after the fallout of her last relationship, she arrives in Sugar Creek in the midst of an identity crisis.

I liked Chloe. She’s fun and loyal, protective of those she cares for, and unafraid of taking chances. She might have forgotten a lot of her fun-loving ways, but Daisy soon helps her remember. I loved her friendship with Daisy, I think it might be my favourite part of this novel. The way the two of them instinctively understand each other without having to go into details is wonderful. They make a formidable team.

Kind of like Chloe and Dev would, if only Dev would relax a little. He’s highly protective of his family, which results in some questionable decisions and behaviour at times. I wasn’t all that fond of him at first, but I loved that his family don’t hesitate to call him out on his bad behaviour. When he calms down a little, though, I really liked how his relationship with Chloe relaxed and deepened. They’re pretty sweet together, even if they are completely different.

I'm going against most of the other reviews here and saying that I didn't really enjoy this book at all. I guess I didn't realise that it would be a 'romance' novel and had assumed it would be a Fannie Flagg style observation of small town life. It's not. And don't get me wrong, I have nothing against a romance novel, this one just isn't a great one.

The main character of Chloe isn't particularly interesting. Devlin is a complete cliche and the lines the author has him spouting are just ridiculous. The whole thing takes feminism back about thirty years. I couldn't even finish the book, that's how little I cared about any of the characters with one exception: Daisy. With the matriarch of the central family, the author created an interesting character who made you want to read more about her. If only any of the other characters were half as interesting.

I felt like this book was being used as a set up for another featuring the 'Rocky' character, who again was marginally more interesting than Chloe but held back by clunky internal monologues that often made me cringe. All the male characters were pretty awful and I was put off by the fact that one was named after a famous actor? That was kind of weird.

Anyway, I've ready plenty of frothy books that are ideal for holiday reading and this just wasn't one of them in my opinion.

Following the revelation that her boyfriend is leaving her for someone else on what should have been her wonderfully happy graduation day, Chloe Madison jumps at the opportunity to take a job in a sleepy town. Her best friend Monica wangles her a job looking after Daisy, a lively pensioner whose adventurous streak has been worrying her family. That family includes Devlin, a hard-working and somewhat cynical guy who is instantly suspicious of Chloe and her obviously impetuous and flighty streak. Of course, the minute they meet they are apparently overcome with desire, and so ensues the two of them trying not to fall in love with each other.

Much of the story also revolves around the town's cupcake club, which gathers regularly to make cupcakes and raise money for the armed forces. There are the usual rivalries, romances and family issues chucked in too, but a large bulk of the story inevitably revolves around Chloe and Devlin, and unfortunately much of the writing around the two of them and their desire for each other is horribly cringesome and at times seems to have been written by a prepubescent boy, with lines such as 'palming her bare ass' - not exactly warm and romantic!

I did like some of the sparky humour in the book, but the author couldn't seem to decide if she was writing romance or soft porn - if she'd stuck with romance, it would be an enjoyable book, but the really cringy sex scenes really ruined it a bit too much.
