From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy comes a poignant, and charming romance about going home, falling in love and finding yourself.
Roman Prescott has always lived his life in the shadows. Being invisible meant staying alive—during his troubled childhood and his years as a soldier. But when an injury sends him back to the small town of Fairhope, he can't hide from his past or the light brought forth by a beautiful pastry chef.
Having lost her parents at a young age, Juliette Adams has had her share of tragedy, but now she fills her days making sweet desserts in her bakery and trying to recapture her happy childhood. Then she meets an attractive, brooding man, who is not only tearing down her old house but might just tear apart her fragile future. She's not interested in the tragic love story she was named after—she wants a love that will lift her up, that will last, and this sexy soldier has one foot out the door.
They both know they should ignore the sparks between them, but Valentine's Day fever has lit up the town and old love letters and long-buried secrets keep bringing them together. Can these two wary souls get past their fear of loving and losing to finally win the greatest love of all?
If so, what could be sweeter than that?
SWEET SOMETHINGS is a full-length standalone novel. But to add a cool twist, it's set in the world of a romantic movie called COFFEE SHOP that is being released on the same day! Both stories (the book and the movie) take place in the same small coastal town, and some of the characters cross over. You can read/watch each separately without missing a beat, as they each have their own independent storylines, but if you'd love to check out both, you'll have even more fun!

This was a fun romance book. So looking forward to watching the movie. This is the story about an injured soldier, Roman Prescott, and a baker Juliette Adams, who just tries to escape her life with her baking. She isn't looking for love, but when Roman enters the picture guess what......I am not giving anything away (hate spoilers myself), but I did enjoy this story. Loved the whole town and the concept. Quick fun read. Then again what do you expect from Barbara's books. Always a great read. Highly recommend.
I want my own wish cookie!
Juliette moves back to Fairhope, Alabama after wining a baking competition to open a bakery and to purchase her childhood home but what she does not expect is to find more than her memories in the home. Juliette finds Roman, the owner's grandson and a military man healing after battle injuries, doing renovations but she also finds a man that is quite attractive. Sweet Something will make you long for your own bakery that sells Wish cookies for Valentine's Day. Find out how the hopes of a number of people in Fairhope are granted, maybe even Juliette's - and she didn't even know she had one.
Sweet Somethings is a fantastic read that easily delves into great characters and makes you want to live in Fairhope, Alabama and most definitely get your own wish cookie.
The novel is also connected to the movie "The Coffee Shop" and I definitely want to watch the movie to learn more about Donovan, the town's coffee shop
