"Sugar and Spice" by Cecelia Dowdy
"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.
