Tully Morgan hasn't been back to Marietta for more than a few brief visits since the night of the 1996 senior prom eighteen years ago, when the chance exposure of a long-held family secret sent her running to her uncle in California in shock. She stood up her date Ren Fletcher that night, and she hasn't seen him since. Now she's here for an extended stay, to help take care of her seriously ill mother. It's an edgy reconciliation, the first time that Tully, Patty and Sugar Morgan have been together since that long ago prom night. Tully has had so much anger toward Sugar... can she ever forgive her? And Sugar still has one more secret that needs to be dealt with, one that needs Ren Fletcher's help. Has he forgiven Tully for leaving him in the lurch on prom night? And is there any chance that he and Tully can rekindle what they might once have had, when he's still tied to someone else?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not what you think This book looks like a classic romance novel. But it is really a piercing tale about the love and bond between mother and daughter. Dark, real, and VERY well written.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sweetest Thing This was a great novel. It was a love story, not only between men and women, but also between mother and daughter, grandmothers and grandchildren, sisters and brothers, and others. Not all love stories end up as happily ever after, but happiness has many definitions. This love story in Big Sky country reveals some of those definitions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It fits the story well. What a touching story. You really have no idea where your life will end up. Past and present and a hopeful heart. I wish it didn't have to end.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet indeed! Novels of this category can be raw at times as they attract more readers. But that was not the case here. The author covered all the details yet kept it sweet. I loved the fact that it was love over lust in the end. Exactly how it should be. I'd have liked it more if the other characters were given a bit more attention to. Especially Charlie as he came down to meet sugar and do deserved an important role somewhere in turn of all that he did.
