Heartwarming, believable, romantic
This was my first 'listen' to one of David's narrations. I found his voice to be very easy to listen to.
The interaction between Candy and Trent was so touching.
At first, I was shocked to hear a male narration of this book. It took me a while to realize that this narrator was reading a story to me...once I settled in, the story flowed beautifully and I found his voice to be very easy to listen to. The fact that he had such a great story to narrate had a lot to do with it ;)
I like how the story was set in a small town - I think it was the perfect town and setting for the story. Moreover, I love how the author developed believable characters who tug at your heart strings.
I loved the gentle pace of this story as Lacey finds her feet in the dating game again. And how patient Trent was with Lacey.
It was Candace had her talk with Trent about Lacey.
this is my first time listening to one of David L. Whites performances.
Yes it was.
Sweet!! I've reviewed this for Unite Indie Book Blog. I had the audio version. This is a quick and easy read. Trent and Lacey's story will warm your heart. While Candace and her silent nudging will make you believe in the power of love over all things. Lacey finds herself being a young single mother. Trent is new the town to be closer to his mother. I loved the gentle pace of this story as Lacey finds her feet in the dating game again. Can Trent bring down the wall around Lacey's heart? I can't wait to read another amazing story from this author. Keep up the awesome work! Highly recommend this story to everyone.
I would recommend this book to be read to a friend, not listen to the narration as I just felt the narrator did not do this book justice.
Sugar & Spice is a novella written by R.E. Hargrave and narrated by David L. White. The author did an awesome job in writing about single mom, Lacey Harrison. Lacey had events happen in high school that could have re-wrote her life, but with the support of her father and the residents of the nursing home her father works at, Lacey was able to finish high school and open her own bakery all while raising her daughter, Candace. Even though for ten years she felt as if something was missing, she didn’t realize what that was until Trent Childress moves into town to be near his mother who is a resident of the nursing home. The story moved at a steady pace with events, not to fast or slow. The relationship between Lacey and Trent felt natural and the supporting characters just added to the story. What I struggled with was the narration of the story. In my opinion the narrator did not do a great job in changing the sound of his voice between the different characters. Since the story is told in dual points of views there were many times that as a new chapter started it took several minutes to realize which point of view the story was being told in and that took away from listening to the story, as the flow was lost while trying to figure this out. For me, the narration just did not fit this short and sweet story many times.
