Review: Sugar & Spice by R.E. Hargrave

SUGAR & SPICE
by R.E. Hargrave


Genre: Romance


Lacey Harrison has been dealt an unexpected hand in life: being a single mom. With her father's help and that of the residents at Royal Hills Nursing Home, she thrives and goes on to become a successful baker. She is content with her life but knows that she and her daughter Candy are missing something. Will things change for the better when Trent Childress moves into town and adds some spice to her sugar?



The story had a cute premise but it was a little too insta love for me. I figured the main character Lacey would move slower especially after being burned and left to be a single mother.  I also didn't feel the connection with the main characters. I wish we had more time to get to know them and more character development. Even though they moved way too fast for my liking there were cute moments in the story. If you like quick, sweet, second chance at love romances this is a good book for you. I listened to the audio version and the narrator did a good job with the story.

Before I knew it, my kitchen had been taken over once again. Now I was standing next to a table decorated with bunnies and eggs decorated in bright colors, peddling our wares. Candy had run off, saying she wanted to find someone that, “I had to meet.” I was hoping she’d moved past the mysterious Coach C to someone closer to her own age.

“Enjoy, Steve,” I said, thanking Coach Rose’s husband for his purchase of two dozen honey carrot cookies. He stepped away, revealing my daughter, who had her hand latched onto the arm of my Valentine’s Day egg disaster: Trent.

“Lacey,” he murmured, his eyes meeting mine and igniting a tugging feeling inside of my stomach that crept lower the longer he looked at me.

“Hey, Trent,” I choked a bit on his name. “Gonna support the school again?” His spreading grin changed the tug to a full on twist and pull, and I lost my breath.

“Least I can do, seeing how they employ me and all,” he answered with a cheeky tone.

“Coach C?” I hazarded a guess, my nose scrunching up.

“Yes, ma’am. Nice to meet ya,” he extended his hand. “Your daughter is a delight to have in class,” he teased with a roll of his eyes. I laughed.

“I bet. I’m guessing you're aware of a certain crush?” I asked, leaning in so that gossipy ears could not overhear me, though our positioning itself was bound to start gossip.

He turned in toward me, his breath a warm whisper on my cheek as he replied, “Yes, I am, and I’m handling it by openly flirting with her mother.”

I have my own recording facility just outside of Nashville, TN. I'm a videographer and editor by trade so I understand the importance of the story and proper pacing. When it comes to your project, I rely on my experience to think about how the listener can have the best possible experience. I hope to partner with authors and combine value of their work with my passion and experience.

I’m on the tour bus partying!

The text from my best friend, Ivy, is one of her last. When weeks stretch with no further contact, I travel to L.A. to track down the band known as Rageon and find Ivy.

The last time I saw Gage in person, we were teens. He's everywhere on social media, so I’m prepared for the tattoo-covered rocker who answers my knock. What I’m not expecting to find is the sweet, s…
