Book Review ~ ‘A Little Sugar, A Lot of Love’ by Linn B. Halton ~ 5 Stars!
What a gorgeous, feel-good read this was. ‘A Little Sugar, A Lot of Love’ will hit just the spot when you need to while away the winter hours with a handsome hero, lots of cakes and a slow-burning, heartfelt romance.
Katie’s story will resonate with many readers. Trapped in a relationship that is turning progressively more and more suffocating as she tries to balance her dream job at her bakery and her romantic life, she finds herself giving her partner Steve more power over her business in an attempt to make profits. But what happens when your dream starts becoming a nightmare? I really felt for Katie, and throughout the novel we get to see her go through ups and downs in her life which we will all relate to, and sympathise with.
Enter Adam, not just once when she needs somebody, but again and again, and an unlikely friendship forms. That is what I loved so much about this story. It’s romantic in its slow-burning way, but at its heart it is a story about the strength of friendship and how for every relationship it will only work when the time is right, and that can take many years, and many cupcakes! I adored seeing the chapters where Adam is with his daughter, and my heart melted at the strength of their affection for each other. With the added extra of the no-nonsense, yet secret romantic Grandma Grace, this book had the most wonderful collection of characters that I felt were my own friends.
A beautiful story, perfect for cuddling up with on a cold winter night, ‘A Little Sugar, A Lot of Love’ is a definite must-read for lovers of romance!
