But before she can pack her bags, Caroline suddenly finds herself the new owner of the run-down Frogmore Café–and forced to choose between her friends and her future.
Then her first love, Mitch O’Neal, returns home and encourages her to seek God’s desires for her future. With his help, she may just discover the true sweet life.
Ope’s Opinion: I went to my bookshelf and looked for a book that had been put there a long time ago. This was one of them. It is a very sweet, christian fiction. It is the first of a series. If you like the first one, you will like the whole series.
The characters have flaws, which makes it easy to relate to them. Caroline was wishy washy. She had trouble making decisions. She wanted to please everyone. A few times I did feel like it was a bit preachy.
The ending was left open because there are two more books to follow.
