Quarter finalist, 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award
Grace Palmer's British friends all think she's living the American Dream. But
her design business is floundering and when she discovers her husband
is cheating with her best client, she panics and flees home to England.
The tranquil village of Saffron Sweeting appears to be a good
place for Grace to lick her wounds, but the community is battling its
own changes. Reluctantly, Grace finds herself helping her new neighbours
as they struggle to adjust and save their businesses. However, not
everyone has the same opinion on what's good for the village. The
charismatic new man in her life may have one speculative eye on Grace,
but the other is firmly on profit. How will she navigate the tricky path
between her home and her happiness?
With gentle humour and generous helpings of British tea and
cake, Saving Saffron Sweeting explores one woman's need to define
herself through her career and community, before she can figure out who
should be by her side.
Saving Saffron Sweeting was a fun, fast paced, charming romantic comedy that will suck you in the first few chapters. I loved the main character Grace. The author did a fabulous job relaying Grace's emotions and I loved how the reader could relate to her. I liked that the story took place both in the United States and in the United Kingdom. This book will make you very hungry for sticky toffee pudding, batter rolls and toasted teacakes. I give this a 4 star rating. I just loved the witty phrases and cheery sarcastic humor.
