April 30th 2019 by Bethany House Publishers

Britt Bradford and Zander Ford have been the best of friends since they met thirteen years ago. Unbeknown to Britt, Zander has been in love with her for just as long.

Independent and adventurous Britt channels her talent into creating chocolates at her hometown shop. Zander is a bestselling author who’s spent the past 18 months traveling the world. He’s achieved a great deal but still lacks the only thing that ever truly mattered to him–Britt’s heart.

When Zander’s uncle dies of mysterious causes, he returns to Merryweather, Washington, to investigate, and Britt is immediately there to help. Although this throws them into close proximity, both understand that an attempt at romance could jeopardize their once-in-a-lifetime friendship. But while Britt is determined to resist any change in their relationship, Zander finds it increasingly difficult to keep his feelings hidden.

As they work together to uncover his uncle’s tangled past, will the truth of what lies between them also, finally, come to light?

Review

This final novel in Becky Wade’s “Bradford Sisters” series was as sweet as I expected, but even more adventurous, swoony, and relatable to my own faith than I thought. I loved it SO MUCH. 

Let’s start with talking about the dynamics and depth of the story. It presents a complex friendship between Britt and Zander, his unrequited romantic love for her and the beginnings of her attraction to him. Also, the sisterly and family relationships are natural and important at this point in all of their connectedness. The mystery and slightly suspenseful plot aspects add even more excitement to the story. All of this combines perfectly in a story that feels fully fleshed out and relatable.

The friendship-turned-romance is transformed at just the perfect pace. I was impatient, of course, for both Zander and Britt to be honest and open about their feelings. We readers have been waiting 3 whole books! When they FINALLY, were, it was all sparks and sweetness and chocolate. I especially loved Zander’s quiet strength and introverted ways. We need more heroes like him in the world.

There are SO MANY quotable lines in Sweet on You! and not just from Becky’s pen. From Zander, too. 😉 One of my favorites: “she {Britt} disrupted him”.

I also smiled over the references to music (Phillip Phillips) and books (like bookish Nora), all the chocolate and cooking bits. Oh, and John and Nora’s peach cobbler contributions (if you’ve read True to You, you know what I’m talking about!).

The faith elements were important to the story, too. They added a richness and a focus that was more than just a romance or a mystery to solve, but rather an essential part of the characters’ lives and a requirement for their own relationships to thrive. The bottom line here: all love requires both bravery and vulnerability. Giving over control. God requires that of us, too — our perfect trust in Him to carry us.

Thank you to Prism Book Tours and Netgalley for the review copy. This is my honest review.
