Sweet Spot

Sweet Spot by Susan Mallery

What was this book about?

Nicole has always been the responsible one in her family. She raised her younger sister, her twin was out traveling the world being a famous concert pianist and she was at home running the family bakery.

One of her sister’s is back in her life after returning from her tour, and another has left her life after what seems to be an affair with Nicole’s husband.

Nicole is ready to move on and when she meets former football player turned high school football coach – Hawk – she decides she is ready to move on with him. She isn’t ready for anything serious – after all she is just finishing up a bad marriage. And he is still morning for his dead wife.

Throw in a few high schoolers (he a teen daughter who happens to be dating Nicole’s now employee Raoul) and they can’t help but get together.

What did you think about the book?

I liked this book. Nicole was a little too uptight for me at first (and in a future book I really don’t think I would have liked her all that much – if I hadn’t read her book first). But overall she was a fun character always willing to give of herself even when she didn’t have to.

And her history kinda forced her to be a little bitter. Being betrayed like that by the sister that you raised is going to cause some issues.

I think my favorite thing about this book though was Hawk. He was just a nice guy. The fact that he gave up his career to be there for his wife when she was going through cancer is just an upstanding thing to do. He is highly invested in his child. He was just a really good romantic interest.

What genre would you consider this?


Question for you:

Would you be able to get over your husband doing something with your sister? Who would you feel most betrayed by?
