How Sweet It Is

How Sweet It Is (A Legacy of Faith Novel Book 3)

"Son," his Dad faced him," I'm going to say this as plainly as I know how. You and your brother will work things out, or I will shut down Laffriot for good and sell its assets to a competitor. Caliban would turn a tidy profit."

And so the story begins. Jed Henning comes to Boise to find his brother, Chris, not because he wants to but because his father has given him an ultimatum to make things right. But while Jed searches for him, he discovers a lot of truths about himself. And why his once close relationship with his brother had gone south. Going through letters and a family bible, he rediscovers his faith and his family while living in Holly Stanford's basement apartment

Holly Stanford is struggling to keep her business, Sweet Caroline's, afloat after her ex-fiancée leaves her. She is left with staggering debt and struggles to run the restaurant left to her by her late uncle. But all Holly wants is to fulfill her dream and bake.

The secondary characters bring interest and a twist to the story. The history of the Henning family is also intertwined in the story.  With Jed's great grandparents the principal characters. 

Robin Lee Hatcher has written a wonderfully compelling book. One I found hard to put down, as the story drew me in to the lives involved.  Holly and Jed, Chris and Willow, Andrew and Helen. Each walking through faith, forgiveness and second chances.

I received a complimentary ebook copy from the publisher, through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
