Serving Up a Sweetheart ~ Review

Serving Up a Sweetheart
A February Wedding Story
By Cheryl Wyatt

When an unexpectedly heavy snowstorm brings the roof down on her home/catering business Meadow Larson is quite literally on her way out of business if she can't come up with a plan. Unfortunately her possible rescuer is the one person she hoped to never see again - Colin McGrath. The person who hurt her so badly in high school is her new neighbor and a contractor.

Unwilling to accept Colin's help, Meadow has little choice if she wants to save her business and her sister's upcoming wedding.  Is Colin's offer of help genuine or is it another elaborate prank to again humiliate and hurt her?

Colin is determined to make things right with Meadow.  He's a changed man and no longer the teenage boy striking out at the hurting, to hide his own pain.  But Meadow has had years of pain and hurt to keep her from trusting.  Can Colin convince her to take a chance on him?

Serving Up a Sweetheart is a February story that will warm your heart.  A sweet story that will fill a long afternoon with a delightful read.

It is interesting to watch Colin and Meadow as their relationship develops.  Forgiveness is a major theme in this story, both the giving and the receiving of it.  Learning to let go of pain is a major component of be able to forgive.

I was provided a copy of the novella by the publisher through the BookLook blogger program in exchange for my honest review.


About the Book:
Meadow knows how to serve delicious food to match any wedding theme. But can she accept love when it's served up on a silver platter?
During one of the biggest weeks of her catering career, Meadow Larson’s kitchen roof caves in after an unrelenting blizzard. She has to accept help from the last person on earth she wants to see: Colin McGrath. The tormentor from her past is now a contractor, her new neighbor—and the only person available to take on a project of this size.
Colin is aware God has given him a second chance to make things right with Meadow after bullying her in high school. After years of regret and guilt, Colin is determined to earn her respect and forgiveness, no matter what it takes.
It’ll take an extreme kitchen renovation, several cooking lessons, a little lace, and a lot of grace, but God is using this renovation project not only to restore Meadow’s heart, but also to restore Colin’s integrity in her eyes. Will Meadow learn to trust the new Colin even as their relationship grows from a business exchange to something more meaningful?
