Publisher's Summary

The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever. As the rich, spoiled princess of Parrish, Mississippi, Sugar Beth Carey had broken hearts, ruined friendships, and destroyed reputations. But 15 years have passed, and now she's come home, broke, desperate, and too proud to show it.

The people of Parrish don't believe in forgive and forget. When the Seawillows, Sugar Beth's former girlfriends, get the chance to turn the tables on her, they don't hesitate. And Winnie Davis, Sugar Beth's most bitter enemy, intends to humiliate her in the worst possible way.

Then there's Colin Byrne...Fifteen years earlier, Sugar Beth had tried to ruin his career. Now he's rich, powerful, and the owner of her old home. Even worse, this modern-day dark prince is planning exactly the sort of revenge best designed to bring a beautiful princess to her knees.

But none of them have reckoned on the unexpected strength of a woman who's learned survival the hard way. Ain't She Sweet? is a story of courage and redemption...of friendship and laughter...of love and the possibility of happily-ever-after.

    "Not good"
    What would have made Ain't She Sweet? better?

    I started listening to this book, but couldn't handle the story or the accent of the person reading it. I have marked this author off my list to listen to.

    Story
    "I love this author but this book is not her best"

    I found the plot a bit depressing and the characters a bit hard to empathise with. Lacked much of the humour of other SEP books.

    Story
    "Shallow"
    What did you like best about Ain't She Sweet?? What did you like least?

    I liked the idea of the story but it was to pornographic for me.


    If you???ve listened to books by Susan Elizabeth Phillips before, how does this one compare?

    I don't think I have listened to this narrator before, but the she was great.


    Which character ??? as performed by Kate Flemming ??? was your favorite?

    Winnie was probably my favorite.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    If it wasn't so explicit sexually it would have been intriguing.

    "A great summer read..."

    I'm a big fan of Southern Belle drama queens in literature, and these characters are very enjoyable. I would love to read more of her books, but unfortunately this the only one on Audible, so far. Hint!

    "Great Story - Painful narration"

    This story is highly interesting and very hard to swith off despite the painful narration. As a southerner I must admit being particulary sensative to bad southern narration, but this one would have made me too sick to stand if the story wasn't so engaging. You can easily distinguish the various characters even if most of them were painful. The British accent was also morbid.

    "Narrator ruined it"

    She has the most bored sounding voice EVER! Yes, she can do various accents well, but all it did was startle me from nodding off at the rest of the boring, monotone narration.
