Ain't She Sweet

Ain't She Sweet - Susan Elizabeth Phillips I just did not love this. There was SO much OTHER stuff in this one. I guess this is a romance, but really there was more small-town, contemporary women's fiction. I really don't like women's fiction. There was way too much information about Sugar Beth's background, high school years, life etc. In fact, by the end of the book the reader basically knows everything there is not know about the whole town and everyone in it. That might be some people's cup of tea, but it isn't mine. It was a struggle to get through this one. I wanted to give up.

Of course there is the romance between Sugar Beth and Colin, but everything else is much bigger. In fact, the romance between Winnie and Ryan is more pronounced than the title characters' coupling. I do love SEP, but this wasn't for me. Of course, the whole thing is witty, well-written and excellently done, it just wasn't the book for me.
