Why Aren't You Sweet Like Me

I know I’ve been gone for quite some time, but now that I’m a stay-at-home mommy again, I hope to be able to devote more time to reviewing.  I’ve read a LOT of good books over the last year and I can’t wait to share them with you!

 I’m going to kick off this new phase of blogging with a GREAT read!  Why Aren’t You Sweet Like Me is based on a true story and will have you hooked on the first page.  Carrie Nyman tells her grandmother’s WWII love story with so much emotion that you’ll feel like Honey herself as you flip through the pages.  You’ll laugh and cry along with her, feel her anger and, occasionally, feel anger towards her.  This story is a bit of an emotional rollercoaster, but it’s a ride you’ll never forget.

Let’s break it down…

Living in a time when women were only expected to get married and have children, Honey was a strong young woman that knew what she wanted.  She took the opportunities that were set before her and made the most of them; but like most young women, she still longed to be truly loved.  Can Honey put aside some of her wants to be with bullheaded Don?  Is she strong enough to be with a military man?

Sweet and hateful.  Loving and unkind.  Don was a walking oxymoron!  His mood swings could give a girl whiplash; but I truly believe he loved Honey.  Can Don prove to Honey that his love is true?  Is love enough to hold them together through the war?
