    fun second chance at love

    In Watertown, Massachusetts, cancer survivor Betty Mueller regrets what she did two decades ago that cost her beloved daughter the love of her life. She serendipitously destroyed Julie¿s relationship with older Michael Slayton because she felt her daughter was too young and he too wild. Now twenty years later, she realizes Michael was Julie¿s one. --- She wants to make amends before she dies as she would love one last a glimpse of the happier carefree teen that her machinations changed into a workaholic divorced single mom. However, Betty knows Julie, a Boston TV reporter, refuses to speak to Michael so her goal seems impossible, but this time mother knows best 'at least she prays she does'. Betty cons Julie into attending famous French chef Renée D¿Ours dessert class at the Famous Boston Cooking School recently divorced Michael is attending too. --- On the surface this may seem like a typical second chance at love, but Sarah Strohmeyer refreshes the theme with plenty of humor, just desserts, and Shakespeare especially the sonnets. Betty is terrific as she understands the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Michael and Julie are classic star-crossed lovers, but there is no real Shakespearean villain, only a caring dying mom. --- Harriet Klausner

    Lovely and inspiring

    What words best describe SWEET LOVE? Warm. Touching. Poignant. What Sarah does best in SWEET LOVE is take what could be real life and show us what matters the most. Love. A mother¿s Sweet Love for her family. A daughter¿s Sweet Love for her parents and child. There is history to be had in Ms. Strohmeyer¿s SWEET LOVE. She opens our eyes to the important things in life¿.our family, friends and loved ones. And in a way, she reminds us that sometimes it is the simplest things that keep that Sweet Love alive. Truly a heartwarming story. This is definitely one to share with all of my loved ones. Most especially, ones who are facing their own personal battles in life. And the recipes are incredible, too! And always remember this¿.Love Abides.
