Ain't She Sweet?

The tiny town of Parrish, MS, isn't exactly welcoming wild child Sugar Beth Carey home with open arms. Nobody has forgotten the former town princess's selfish and demanding ways or the fact that she had a teacher fired in a bid for her millionaire father's attention. Sugar's penniless return is made worse by her discovery that her former enemies seem to be enjoying the fruits of her old life: Her half-sister has married Sugar Beth's high school sweetheart and the fired teacher has become a successful novelist and set up house in her childhood home. To make matters worse, Sugar has changed over the years and all she longs for is a place to call her own. With the tables turned, is there any way she can right old wrongs and make Parrish her home again?

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine A sassy novel sassily read. In this romantic comedy, Sugar Beth Carey returns, tail between her legs, to her Mississippi hometown, where she has, as a spoiled, rich, wild, and beautiful teen, alienated just about everybody. Now the tables are turned. How the chastened but still impertinent heroine turns her life around, makes amends, and finds love consumes the book's lighthearted pages. The award-winning Kate Fleming (a.k.a. Anna Fields) gives an uneven, albeit always absorbing, reading. She starts out with a dazzling bang before settling into a pleasant but slightly distant interpretation of the narrative. Her impersonation of Sugar Beth's arrogant love interest fails to convince us of his sex appeal. The sex scenes are flat. On the other hand, the dialogue sparkles delightfully. Y.R.
