Review: Sweet Nothings (Sugar Springs #2) by Kim Law

Joanie Bigbee, cupcake baker extraordinaire, likes to keep her options open--and she's good at it. She's started and sold some 30 businesses in her postage stamp-sized Tennessee town, and at the moment she can be found in a short skirt and go-go boots, selling cupcakes out of the back of a converted Volkswagen van. What she moves on to next is anybody's guess. She knows better than to be tied down. In any way. She's watched every woman in her family fall head-over-heels, only to find themselves wondering how to pick up the pieces when love is lost.

When Nick Dalton shows up at the groovy cupcakery, all Joanie wants is a taste; a fling with no strings suits her just fine. But for Nick, a bite is not enough; he wants the whole cake: a big house, a family, true love. But love only makes you stupid, right? Joanie has to decide whether to follow where her free-spirit leads? or hold on to the sweetest thing she's ever known.

Kim Law pens a deliciously heartwarming contemporary romance in Sweet Nothings, the second novel in the Sugar Springs series.

Joanie Bigbee recently opened a new cupcake shop, Cakes-A-GoGo, selling cupcakes from the back of a Volkswagen van. Joanie is in a tight spot. She is behind on payments to the nursing home taking care of her grandmother, so Joanie hires Nick Dalton fix up her grandmother’s home in order to sell it. Joanie is an expressive character who likes to change the tips of her hair to match the cupcake special of the week, wearing matching skirts and go-go boots, of course. I just fell in love with her quirky personality. More importantly though, Joanie is afraid of relationships because of the Bigbee curse, which guarantees that Bigbee women have bad luck with men. Joanie absolutely doesn’t count on being attracted to Nick. Nick falls for Joanie hook, line, and sinker when he sees her in her go-go outfit. Their sexual chemistry sizzles immediately, and their first kiss is toe curling. Hoping to protect her heart, Joanie sets boundaries for their relationship. Thankfully, Nick is more than willing to play by Joanie’s rules for the time being. Being a thoughtful, compassionate, and all around nice guy makes Nick the perfect leading man. As they continue to spend time together, Nick knows that they are good for each other, even if Joanie doesn’t see it. Nick’s patience while waiting for Joanie to catch up is endearing. When Joanie finally realizes that she is truly in love, it is a beautiful thing to see.

With memorable characters and stunning plot twists, Sweet Nothings keeps the pages turning, leading to the perfect romantic conclusion that will leave tears in your eyes and a smile on your face.

    My favorite cupcake flavor is red velvet with cream cheese whipped frosting. Book sounds great! Thanks for the chance!
