I received a complimentary copy of HOW SWEET IT IS by Dylan Newton from the publisher. Thank you to Forever Pub!

Rating: 4 / 5

HOW SWEET IT IS follows Kate, an event planner best known for creating elaborate weddings. When a friend asks her to shift gears a bit to throw a book launch party for a well known horror writer, she takes the chance to expand her scope and impress those in charge of judging such events.

Drake is a writer who has begun to feel a bit stuck in the horror genre. He’s tired of the spotlight and after his first meeting with Kate doesn’t go smoothly and her ideas for his launch seem too far over the top for his tastes. Still, he strikes a bargain with her when she seems to be providing some muse like inspiration. If she helps him with his new project, he’ll work with her on his party.

Being a fan of horror books, I was intrigued by the premise of a horror writer in a romance book and had been wanting to pick this up. This was my first read of 2022 and it was a a really fun story to kick off the new year. I really enjoyed hearing about Kate’s ideas and some of her missteps really provided good humor.

I enjoyed the romance that develops between Kate and Drake and that it comes from their willingness to work together and compromise. The small town setting and the book launch party also added a lot of fun elements!

This is a book I am glad I finally had the opportunity to pick up! I’d recommend adding it to your TBR if it’s not there already!
