to @tessielouwrites on the release of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Genre: Women’s Fiction
Injured after playing hockey for 10 years, Trapper returns to his hometown… and his childhood sweetheart, Brandi. Why did they break up all those years ago, and will they have a second chance at love this time around?
The second in a new series that alternates between historical fiction and contemporary fiction, this story was again a much needed break from reality. As with the first, The School Mistress of Emerson Pass (5 stars), I was totally immersed in the story and couldn’t wait to find out more about the main characters and their friends. I loved that letters from the ancestors (aka the characters featured in the first installment) were included in this story as it allowed me to revisit them.
Overflowing with warmth, emotion, and a little bit of steam (my oh my, there’s amazing chemistry between Trapper and Brandi!), Sugar Queen was dreamy and romantic. After a difficult childhood, Brandi just needs to be loved and kindhearted Trapper seems like the perfect man for the job. Some might call him sappy, but he filled this girl’s heart with JOY. Books that feature high school sweethearts are my jam, and this one did not disappoint, providing all the feels.
As for the new cast of characters, I was intrigued by each and every one of them… but my vote is for Crystal and Garth to be up next (wink wink). Their banter was flirty and fun, and I can’t wait to read a full book about them. Last but not least, I have to add that this series would make an amazing sitcom.
