Standing Between Stephanie and Her Dream Is One Hundred Pounds of Lovable Trouble It should have been so simple for Stephanie Pink: Meet up with Agnes Wharton in a small town in California, retrieve the reclusive author’s valuable new manuscript, and be promoted to a full-fledged literary agent.

But Agnes’s canine companion, Sweetness, decides to make a break for it before Stephanie can claim her prize. Until Agnes has Sweetness safely back at home in Eagle Cliff, Washington, Stephanie will never set eyes on the manuscript she needs to make her dreams come true..

When Stephanie tracks the runaway mutt to a campground, she meets Rhett Hastings—a man also on the run from a different life and a costly mistake. Rhett agrees to help Stephanie search for the missing dog…thus launching a surprising string of adventures and misadventures. Once Sweetness gets added to the mix, it’s a recipe for love and loss, merriment and mayhem, fun and faith in the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest.


My review:

Fetching Sweetness is a such a charming book.

It has characters that have baggage as most of us do. It also has something that most of us don’t have.  A rambunctious and ill-mannered spatula loving dog named Sweetness.

I really liked Stephanie for her tenacity. I may have had a bit of a crush on Rhett. I absolutely loved them together.  Of course I loved Sweetness. I could easily imagine his antics and their frustration.

They thought they were rescuing Sweetness, but at times he was the one that came to the rescue of not only helpless animals but perhaps humans as well.

It’s a story of forgiveness, learning from past mistakes and embracing the future. Because in order to move forward you need to let go of the past which isn’t always easy.

I really like this authors  writing style. In this book she adds the perfect touch of humor throughout.

A definite must read for fiction fans of all ages. This will definitely put a smile on your face.

I received a copy of this book from the author and have given my honest opinion.
