Sugar Money
Sugar Money: A Novel - Jane Harris

Based on actual events, Sugar Money by Jane Harris introduces me to a history I did not know and brings to life yet another aspect of the brutality of slavery. The narrator's language scattered between French, English, and Caribbean Creole makes the book a challenge to read at times. The voice of an adolescent narrator also superimposes on the horror of slavery a certain innocence. It is an interesting contrast at times and accentuates the brutality when the descriptions do come.

"Sugar and Spice and All Those Lies" by Evy Journey

My Thoughts....

I found that this novel had a good romantic storyline with a dark twist that will definitely keep you reading. The jest of the story is that Gina comes from a poor family but loved to cook and ends up getting a wonderful Chef's job at a restaurant in the Bay area of San Francisco where she quickly has a life change. Gina's life really changes as she has a different life since her move, working in a rich restaurant and making friends, however, there will be twist and turns that will come from all of this when jealous women [Cristi & Marcia] come out of the woodwork.

This author really gives the readers a interesting romance thriller read with some 'intriguing characters and unforeseen dangers.' What will happen as two guys have a interest in Gina with one of the two being a former boyfriend of Gina's friend. Who will Gina choose...Brent the detective or Leon the rich playboy? What will happen when Gina's began to receive death threats? By the end will these men 'help, harm or be a part of her journey? To get these questions and more answered you will have to pick up "Sugar and Spice and All Those Lies" to see how this story will come out.

I really enjoyed how the author included cookery-themed recipes with tips on how to cook better. This story really will capture the readers attention to the last page.

This novel was from "BookLikes giveaway" and I received this copy from the BookLikes Giveaway contest!

My Thoughts....

"Sugar and Spice" was another good 'Bakery Romance series' that will keep your attention turning the pages to see what happening next. The two main characters Sheila Parks and Mason Smith were well defined and believable giving the reader a good Christian romantic fiction read. For Sheila had been dealt a bad hand from a horrible breakup with her ex[Reese]. It was hard to understand why this ex didn't even tell Sheila that he had a 'twin' brother. When Mason [the other twin] meets Sheila it wasn't a pleasant meeting. Now, I don't want to give too much away about that other than to say it did have me shaking my head and even laughing a bit. However, things do start to look up for this heroine because employment is what she needed at this time and Mason was there to help her out. However, there was still something that was bothering Sheila. Would she be able to share with Mason and listen to her friend and mom? For Mason will there be some help out their for him that he had needed for a long time? I like how these two were put together in this sweet romantic story. We find both of the characters had some problems that needed fixing. How will this all be worked out for Sheila and Mason? Will they get their HEA in the end? Again, you will have to pick up the good novella to see how this author brings it all out so well to the readers. Would I recommend? YES, the whole Bakery Romance series: "Raspberry Kisses, Shades Of Chocolate, Sweet Dreams and this read....Sugar and Spice" that you will truly enjoy. Oh, I almost forgot...those amazing sweet treats that were from Mason's bakery sounded like some good eats.

"Your Husband, My Sugar Daddy" by Kimberly Whitlow

My Thoughts....

This author did a wonderful job at keeping your attention from the start all the way to the end. There was so much drama in this novel! I didn't know who to feel sorry for ...April who seemed to love in a story of 'deception, betrayal and adultery and cheating'....will she learn from this horrible experience she went through? The characters were simply off the chain being so well developed, well portrayed and oh so believable...from James, Roy, Javon, [Javona], Linda, Lynette, Kevin, Biggie to a few others to name a few. I especially liked how this author was able to bring in a Christian part to this story...which did enrich the story. I don't want to tell too much other than say that I would definitely recommend this read as a good read. However, I guess we will have to get the next part of this story to find out what will happens to James, Linda and Javon as this story seems to continue. Yes, this one is a cliffhanger....look for this author's next novel... Your Husband, My Sugar Daddy 2!
