Book Review: Sugar Creek by Toni Blake

Grade: 5 stars
Novellus perfectus!
Amazon appetizer: Welcome to Destiny, Ohio—where two families have been at odds as long as anyone in town can remember.

Rachel Farris returned to her childhood home with one mission in mind: get Mike Romo out of her family’s apple orchard business and out of their lives. But hard-nosed and totally hot Mike, who happens to be the law in Destiny, is convinced the Farris clan stole the land from his family fifty years ago and he’s not backing down. Even when shapely trouble shows up in a pair of designer blue jeans. However, neither the hunky cop nor the sexy prodigal hometown girl can anticipate the electricity that heats things up whenever they’re together—adding new sizzle to an ongoing feud that’s raged for generations, and soon putting both their hearts at risk.
My thoughts: When I stumbled upon Toni Blake's site and read an excerpt of Sugar Creek I instantly knew I HAD to read it! I was lucky enough to win an ARC and thus didn't have to wait long to sink my teeth into the novel (it is planned to be released on 1 June 2010, mark your calendars!), and not only did it live up to that exceptionally funny and sizzling excerpt, but it was so much better!

The story behind Sugar Creek could be summed up pretty simply: big city girl goes back to her small hometown to help out grandma and sparks fly with the drop-dead gorgeous local cop. But it is so much more than this backbone of a story!

Plot: 9/10

Ending: 10/10
Writing: 10/10
