Great Story

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
