  • 'SOMETHING SWEETER' by Candis Terry (Eagle); Avon ($5.99)

"Something Sweeter" is another engaging trip to Sweet, Texas. This time we delve into the life of Jesse, the Wilder brother who seems to have quite the reputation with the women of the area; however, things are not always what they seem.

Jesse is a busy veterinarian who has put his life on hold to see that his family is taken care of. They have had enough tragedies recently, and now with several impending weddings on the horizon, he wants to help as much as possible to make them special occasions.

When Allison Lane comes to town to check up on her soon-to-be-married father, she meets the Wilder family and realizes that her father is in good hands. She can't help but get caught up in their lives. She is not sure what to think of Jesse at first, but the more time they spend together, the more she likes him and his life in Sweet. When tragedy strikes her sister, she rushes back to Seattle only to realize that home is with Jesse and his family in Texas.

My take: This is a very heartwarming series set in a small town in Texas.

With each book we get more involved in the area and the people who live there. Big-city girl meets small-town boy is a fun trope, and when you add in Candis Terry's intriguing characters, you can't go wrong with this series. I love how she portrays the military and family in each of her books.

My rating: These stories can be read as a standalone; however, since they are all so entertaining, I recommend reading them all during those hot summer days.
