Publisher's Summary

Some things are better than chocolate.... Molly O'Brien is a sweetheart. Her friends and neighbors all think so. While she enjoys her quiet life running the town bakeshop in Applewood, Illinois, she wonders if there could be more.

After losing the love of her life four years prior in a plane crash, Molly thinks she's ready to navigate the dicey dating waters once again. However, you can't always pick who your heart latches on to. When Jordan Tuscana, the beautiful younger sister of her lost love, returns to town, Molly finds her interest piqued in a manner for which she wasn't prepared. As secrets are uncovered, Molly and Jordan must figure out how to navigate the difficult terrain of their multifaceted relationship - especially when something much deeper seems to be bubbling between them.

Lovely story

This is the 4th Brayden book I've listened to. The stories are always poignant, the characters always believable. Narration brings it to life. Thank you Melanie & Felicity.

Awesome story, well told

This is my very favorite of Melissa Brayden's books. Her background in theater is obvious in her delightful dialogue and precision pacing. I've liked this author from the beginning, but she continues to improve with each book. Her main characters are well developed and surrounded by a cast of interesting secondary characters. I also thought the narrator did a good job with the reading. Can't recommend this enough. It's an excellent story.

Family Complications

The story deals with grief and family. With small town businesses competing with, and usually losing to franchises and chain stores.
Molly O'Brien has taken over her father's bakery and is struggling to survive in a world ruled by Starbucks. Her Wife Cassie has been dead four years now but the pain is still fresh and she hasn't even started to move on. The upcoming occasion of her father-in-law's 60th birthday has brought home Cassie's younger sister Paula. Paula is a film producer and in her medical career family constitutes not only under achievement status but makes her the family black sheep. As a child she'd longed for Molly in the manner of a younger sibling having a crush on her older sibs girlfriend. Paula is now all grown up and hasn't yet overcome that long ago childhood crush on Molly. Or it has at least grown into something more now.
They do the best they can to keep their attraction within acceptable limits, particularly Molly but this is a romance novel, so you can guess how well that works. At least in this case there is a logical reason for their trepidation; after all hooking up with a sibling's ex is likely to create some tension in the family even if the sibling in question is dead.
I've only been reading this genre for two or three years now and one of my first impressions of it was that the amount of drama was way overblown; a reliable source informs me that it's not. The whole lack of communication thing is another story.
There are less cliches and usual plot devices in this work than in the standard type in this genre. A bit too much Hallmark Channel in spots but this selection is still in the upper echelon of the genre.

Very enjoyable!

Where does How Sweet It Is rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 10

Any additional comments?

The narration was outstanding! I could definitely hear the difference in voices and I could physically imagine how Jordan and Molly would have looked by the narrators voice. The story was very enjoyable. The narration was fantastic...did I already say fantastic?.....cause it was....fantastic....

Not Melissa's Best...repetitive

After the Soho Loft series it going to be hard for Melissa Brayden to equal or best them. Kiss the Girls was my favorite. Felicity Munroe is my favorite Brayden narrator by far, but this time she dropped the ball. She was trying to do way too much with all the different accents. And after listening to 6 other Brayden books, you really grow tired of hearing the same lines repeated; pushing the hair from the forehead, arm around the waist, the best thing ever, her center, she was so ready, and so many more lines that are used in every book. Not every love affair is the best ever. Where have these people been that everything is the best ever?
And I just found it hard to believe this small town USA would be GayTopia! Everybody even the old folks are all so cool with all these gay people. No way. Finally, I really had a hard time with the 2 characters falling in love. Some things are off limits no matter how strong the attraction. Get a hold of yourselves. There's other fish in the sea, you live in the gayest small town on the planet...find someone else. Hoping Melissa will be more creative in her upcoming books. She really is a great writer. I will continue to buy her books because she is witty and her characters are usually hot, sexy and unbridled.

Sweet as sugar

Just lovely. At first I was sort of hesitant but they story pulls you in pretty quickly with the characters. I fell in love with the two leading ladies and was hooked.

The narrator does a pretty good job at creating a smooth but noticeable transition for each character.

I would recommend this to someone for sure.

Made me laugh

As I make my way through this genre, they all start to blend together. This was a bit different. Made me laugh out loud, the characters seemed real, current. I liked the narrator's voice.

Smart, funny and light

The dialogue is smart and witty and sharp. The story is touching and moving. This isn't a novel for the ages so those who consider it too juvenile might want to check the classics aisle. If you want to laugh (out loud sometimes) and feel your heart break just little then read this
