READ AND REVIEW
Release Date: January 17, 2017
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!

REVIEW: SWEET SOMETHINGS (COFFEE SHOP) BY BARBARA FREETHY
Sweet Somethings by Barbara Freethy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Everybody deserves their second chance. For some people it just takes a little more time to find it. Juliette and Roman are due to have some happiness in their lives. Having been dogged by tragedy and heartache, it's only right that the dark shadows fade to make way for more sunshine. But can these shadow hunters let go of the past and say hello to a brighter future? Sweet Somethings uses the past to influence the future. Brought together by an old house, an unforgettable love story and some surprising secrets this couple may finally find a place to call home. Each other. Ms. Freethy continues to surprise me with her frank candor, emotional stories and epic romances. Her voice is unique and her stories have a purity that shines through.
Coffee Shop - A woman in search of a love that won't let her down. Coffee Shop and it's cast of characters mixes funny with a whole of heart to deliver a quirky yet lovable journey to a second chance love. Donovan is a woman on a mission. If she can get her head out of the past and listen to her heart. The charm was there, even in the lukewarm moments. A Hallmark card for the soul.
