Britt Bradford and Zander Ford have been the best of friends since they met thirteen years ago. Unbeknownst to Britt, Zander has been in love with her for just as long.

Independent and adventurous Britt channels her talent into creating chocolates at her hometown shop. Zander is a bestselling author who’s spent the past 18 months traveling the world. He’s achieved a great deal but still lacks the only thing that ever truly mattered to him–Britt’s heart.

When Zander’s uncle dies of mysterious causes, he returns to Merryweather, Washington, to investigate, and Britt is immediately there to help. Although this throws them into close proximity, both understand that an attempt at romance could jeopardize their once-in-a-lifetime friendship. But while Britt is determined to resist any change in their relationship, Zander finds it increasingly difficult to keep his feelings hidden.

As they work together to uncover his uncle’s tangled past, will the truth of what lies between them also, finally, come to light?

My Review

One can never have enough Becky Wade books! Contemporary romance has another winner in Sweet on You, that’s for sure. I’m sad to see the series end, because the Washington-state setting is always fun and I’ve spent so much time getting to know the characters that I don’t want them to go!

As with any book set in my home state, I definitely hyperanalyze Seattle references. Britt and Zander went downtown at a couple points during the book, visiting the library (yay!) before lunch at Place Pigalle. I may have spent more time than I’d care to admit mulling over how long it would take to walk between the two! You see, I didn’t initially think it would constitute the “short walk” noted in the book (Google Maps suggests 12 minutes/0.6 miles), but to be fair, I judge distances based on the length of a business-lunch break and likelihood of fast-ish service. I lunch on the clock!

World-building continues as ever in the fictional town of Merryweather (does that remind anyone else of Sleeping Beauty?). Characters mentioned previously make appearances — read the series in order! I enjoyed seeing what each of the sisters are up to after their respective stories wrapped up earlier on.

Britt and Zander are both endearing. I finally mentally cast Zander by about 2/3 of the way through — Cillian Murphy. I wonder what Wade would say to that, haha! 😉 Their love story will absolutely satisfy readers, whether the latter are new to Wade’s books or have been reading them long-term.

I received a copy of the book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
