Fetching Sweetness was a lighthearted romp of a story with a much deeper underlying message. I must admit that I struggled to connect with the main characters, Rhett and Stephanie. But even though the connection wasn’t very strong for me with these characters, there were still some very sweet and tender moments that I enjoyed reading about which were wrapped up in Fetching Sweetness.
Both Rhett and Stephanie had signifigant journeys to travel both physically and emotionally in this book. Each believed that they knew the plans they had for their futures, and both of them had a lot of growing to do in understanding God’s desire to be part of their lives. Fetching Sweetness was a sweet journey with plenty of lighthearted humor.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Standing Between Stephanie and Her Dream
Is One Hundred Pounds of Lovable Trouble
It should have been so simple for Stephanie Pink: Meet up with Agnes Wharton in a small town in California, retrieve the reclusive author’s valuable new manuscript, and be promoted to a full-fledged literary agent.
But Agnes’s canine companion, Sweetness, decides to make a break for it before Stephanie can claim her prize. Until Agnes has Sweetness safely back at home in Eagle Cliff, Washington, Stephanie will never set eyes on the manuscript she needs to make her dreams come true.
When Stephanie tracks the runaway mutt to a campground, she meets Rhett Hastings—a man also on the run from a different life and a costly mistake. Rhett agrees to help Stephanie search for the missing dog…thus launching a surprising string of adventures and misadventures.
Once Sweetness gets added to the mix, it’s a recipe for love and loss, merriment and mayhem, fun and faith in the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest.
