A sugary American and spicy Cornishman in an unlikely romance! This is another of Angela Britnell's excellent romances which has many setbacks and problems along the way especially when both "ex"s get involved...... I enjoyed this Choc Lit romance because it had touches of humour and left me with a warm feeling which all good novels should. Well worth reading!

The blurb for Sugar and Spice sounds brilliant and really very interesting and I thought this book should be totally my cup of tea. I mean, it is about a Chef, so there are going to be tons of eating for sure...! And the two main characters were described as a chalk and cheese so I was hoping for a real chemistry. And I have never read Angela Britnell before, and reading an author for the first time is always a great experience for me.

Meet Lily, a Chef who has achieved everything only thanks to her hard work. Living in the US, she's presently in Cornwall where she's going to meet and convince some of the top chefs to take part in her new show, Celebrity Chef Swap. She also wants to run away from her cheating ex - boyfriend, but it's not going to be so easy: he's also her manager and producer of the show and doesn't seem to understand the word "ex".
Lily doesn't want to drive herself on the wrong side of the road, so she needs a driver. Her landlady is able to organize this and we are introduced to Kenan, who doesn't speak much and who has some issues. He's back from Afghanistan and he misses his daughter whom he hasn't seen for six long years.
So, Lily and Kenan set off on a journey through Cornwall and, as it happens, a journey full of adventures. They can't reach a destination without something happening, without a phone - call from home, without exes returning/coming and bringing children back or plotting something really bad.
But in the little meantime that they have, some feelings start to develop between them. Unfortunately, the whole world is against them. Will they manage to stay together?

Lily is introduced to us as a sexy, confident Luscious Lily, with her own TV show, a businesswoman who knows what she wants.

This is another winning book by Angela Britnell. Sugar and Spice is fun, sassy and such a pleasure to read. Lily is such a vibrant character in contrast to Kenan's stoic charm. I loved all the romantic tension, while Kenan tried to maintain his prickly exterior.

Before they even have a start, Kenan's ex-wife shows up and puts a monkey wrench in the works- then it all gets very complicated on both sides. When there is a will there is a way and somehow Lily and Kenan find their way.

I love to watch the Food Network TV shows and I can envisage "luscious Lily"'s show. Sugar and Spice is a great treat of a book with gorgeous Cornish men and equally gorgeous locations. If you are looking for a book with the feel good factor, then this is the book for you.

Sugar and Spice is Angela Britnell's debut UK novel, having won ChocLit's Search for an American Star competition, and it is no wonder because you can tell that Angela is a very accomplished writer.

Sugar and Spice is pure romance, almost from the very first page and it doesn't let up in the slightest until you have absorbed the very last word. I have to admit that I found American Lily a little irritating to start with but I soon came to adore her relationship with brooding Kenan. I also loved Kenan's relationship with Mandy, and my heart went out to him when I learnt the circumstances under which he hadn't been in her life for a number of years.

If I had to complain about anything, it would be this: Lily was in the UK to find chefs to take part in her new American TV show, Celebrity Chef Swap (I really can imagine this show gracing our screens) but, in my opinion, we don't see enough of this element. Her journey to find the chefs is just too simple, and they are all a little too agreeable, although I really liked the different characters. I just would have liked to have seen a bit more of them and for there to have been a little more drama from this element, rather than all the drama being romanced based. Although having said that, there is also Patrick O'Brien to consider; ex-fiancé and producer, he is a force to be reckoned with.

Ultimately, Sugar and Spice is just that - sweet Kenan has met his match when he lays eyes on Spicy (and sultry, and sexy by all accounts) Luscious Lily. But can they find the perfect recipe to cook up their happy ever after?

Thank you, as always, to the ChocLit team for a copy of Sugar and Spice in return for an honest review. If you're looking for a challenging read, this probably isn't the book for you, but if you are a fan of good old chick lit, Sugar and Spice is out now, so you can grab yourself a copy and enjoy some Sugar and Spice, everything nice.

Lily Redman is a chef, and also does TV. She is currently working on confirming the line up of Celebrity Chef Swap, a programme where chefs will swap kitchens. She is going to make this an international show and comes to the UK to try and convince some people to take part. She is also trying to get away from her ex manager and fiancee Patrick.

Lily arrives and heads to Cornwall, where she then decides she will need a driver to get her around not only Cornwall but also the rest of the UK as she has a lot to fit in, in a short space of time. Betty, the woman she is staying with, recommends Kenan Rowse for the job.

Kenan is an ex-soldier, having served in Afghanistan, but is now back and looking for work. He agrees to be Lily's driver, but the job is a lot more than he bargained for. There is a simmering attraction between the pair the whole time, despite them being complete opposites.

He is the strong, silent type and Lily loves to talk. Lily is also a complete foodie and Kenan just sees it as fuel, which is a perception Lily is determined to change.

At the base of his book there is a story about food and about love. The food descriptions are nice, but didn't really make me too hungry, but everything else I thought was really good. There are lovely descriptions of Cornish farms and cooking, including the Cornish Pasty!

Both Lily and Kenan's exes appear, mainly to cause trouble, and to add to the drama of the book, as well as the will they get together or not vibe.

I found this to be a largely enjoyable book, full of some incredibly sweet moments, and I think I fell just a little bit in love with Kenan.
