One thought on “Sugar, by Jewell Parker Rhodes

  1. This was a sweet light story. For a fun read though, it was really good. It had a nice plot and some character developement. I liked the main character. She was just the right amount annoying so that you knew the real her, but was not so frustrated as to stop reading. The best thing was definitely the writing style. It fit the story so well, the way it had a lot of short sentences and fragmants instead of long ones that wouldn’t fit such a feel good story like this. I got a really good picture of the setting. It is the best book out of the few I have read so far, but I don’t think it is the winner.
