Overview

If only everything in life was as simple as baking a cake...



Jennie Copeland thought she knew the recipe for a happy life: marriage to her university sweetheart, a nice house in the suburbs and three beautiful children. But when her husband leaves her, she is forced to find a different recipe. And she thinks she's found just what she needs: a ramshackle house on the outskirts of the beautiful Talyton St George, a new cake-baking business, a dog, a horse, chickens...



But life in the country is not quite as idyllic as she'd hoped, and Jennie can't help wondering whether neighbouring farmer Guy Barnes was right when he told her she wouldn't last the year.



Or perhaps the problem is that she's missing one vital ingredient to make her new life a success. Could Guy be the person to provide it?

    Jennie Copeland has agreed to completely swear off men forever f

    Jennie Copeland has agreed to completely swear off men forever following the divorce of her husband David eighteen months ago, after learning he was in love with someone he worked with who was much younger than she was. Now Jennie has opted to move to the quiet country away from the city that once consumed her and her three children, even if it means leaving all traces of their former life behind as well as friends and family. Moving to a small four acre farm in Devon, she has found the inspiration to begin her own small business of baking cakes and sweet treats. Only her kids aren't the least bit convinced the country life is for them.

    For her oldest son Adam, the internet speed is more along the lines of snail mail, her precocious daughter Georgia, who is more like Jennie than she could imagine, is the only one who is convinced this is a great idea, followed on the heels of Sophie the youngest who can't imagine living in a disgusting old farm house inundated by cows. Yet despite all their misgivings the Copeland family buckles down and attempts to give it a go if only Jennie can convince herself this is a good decision. Her former ex believes that she has truly bitten off more than she can chew and her neighbor gives her more than just a great view to look at. He is the one who sold her his former farm house, while maintaining a home on the existing 150 acres of land for milking cows.

    Will Jennie's vow to swear off men for good last as well as she thought or does love hold a second chance in it's grip for both Jennie and Guy Barnes, who have both been left with heart ache in their past lives? Only time will tell what kind of story plots, author Cathy Woodman has in store in her latest novel, The Sweetest Thing. I received The Sweetest Thing by Cathy Woodman compliments of Arrow Books and TLC Book Tours for my honest review and did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable one. The opinions expressed here are strictly my own and once again I am delighted to be taken back to Devon for a different look at the country life I had discovered when I read Country Loving, one her many books in the Talyton St George Series of novels she has written. Her writing style once again has managed to transport me to Devon and to the sights, sounds and warmth of the people who interact with both Jennie and Guy. From learning what it takes to raise chickens and get them to lay eggs to how milk gets from cows to cartons. Along the way love begins to take root and you find yourself hoping they will realize their feelings before you get to the end. I won't spoil it but you'll definitely want this one! I personally rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars!

    Great Book!!
    This was a great book! It is the third book in the Talyton St. George series. However, it can be read as a standalone. This was the first book that I have read by Cathy Woodman, and now I want to go back and read the other books in this series. Jennie is recently divorced and wants a fresh start so she starts a baking service; she also buys a house that needs repairs along with some animals. She meets her sexy neighbor Guy Barnes. This book kept my attention from the first page and I couldn’t put it down until I finished.  I loved all of the characters, and can’t wait to read more. 
    A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

    Good

    I can hardly remember the storyline. I guess that says it. Just not my kind of book.

    A lovely British romance

    I love reading about English people and their everyday lives. This was a very "can't-put-it-down" read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Granted, I eventually had to Google an Aga cooker to learn more about it. Fascinitating!
