Publisher's Summary

Though she has blossomed into a beauty, Lily Christner doesn't really believe it. Deep down she still feels like a lonely, gawky teenager. Maybe that's why she's all but promised herself to Paul Glick, the one boy who never teased her in her awkward girlhood, unlike Dan Kanagy, whose creative name-calling left her in tears many a time.

Now he's back in town after two years away and being surprisingly sweet - making Lily unsettlingly yet deliciously nervous. It seems Dan wants Lily's forgiveness...and her heart. But can he convince her - not to mention her protective schwesters and aendi - that despite the past, her future lies with him?

Narrator needs Deutsch lessons

What made the experience of listening to Sweet as Honey the most enjoyable?

The story line was excellent.

What did you like best about this story?

The author made the characters seem real.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was a bit annoying because she mispronounced so many of the Deutsch words....for instance, "Die" is not pronounced as the act of dying, but "dee" and it was infuriating every time she used the word. Several times I had to turn the book off because I couldn't deal with it.

Any additional comments?

I loved the story, but the narration was something else.

Good

I really enjoyed this story. Though the main character was easy to like the thoughts she had were at times difficult to read. I just wanted to step into the book & say “you are better”.

If mispronunciations bug you then skip this one!

The story was fine, but the narrator mispronounced the name of the male protagonist over and over. I stuck it out and finished the book.

I will not be finishing this series

The main character in this story, Lily, got on my nerves so bad. I don't know much about Amish culture but the author made Lily seem so weak minded that whenever her boyfriend said jump she said how high. Another issue was how easy he could manipulate her with the Word of God, I know that this happens all the time but it was exhausting "watching" Lily make up with Dan then letting Paul manipulate her, it was an endless cycle.

Very sweet book

Loved this fun love story. The main character was very sweet and taken advantage of by her boyfriend. She soon saw his true colors.

Good read

The story was good,fun and entertaining. I got a little bored with the narrator. She seemed to drag on at times. I will order the rest of the series though.
