Stars (O’s): OOOO As a teenager,
Annie Mae Dalton didn’t date much. But that didn’t mean she didn’t have any fun with the boys. In fact, she had fun with 2 very cute boys, Marcus and Scott. The three were inseparable. They did everything together.
After graduation Marcus and Scott go off to college together, leaving Annie behind to study for their careers in law enforcement. Annie’s mother gets ill so she and her twin brother Jesse take over, the family business, Sweet Things bakery.
When the sister of Annie’s employee goes missing, Marcus, an FBI agent and Scott, Atlanta PD detective, team up in the search for the missing girl. This case brings the three old friends back together for the first time in years. Although Scott married after college, he never quite got over his high school love. Being back in Clarksville with Annie and Marcus reminds him of the love he left behind all of those years ago.
As soon as Marcus sets foot Sweet Things he is brought back to the old days. Catching first sight of Annie, she is more beautiful than he remembered. All he wanted was to reach out and touch her. When Annie doesn’t respond in kind, Marcus focuses on the task at hand, finding the missing girl.
Although Annie never forgot her time with Marcus and Scott, she moved on with her life. She never had long term, serious relationships, but she did carry on a steamy, secret affair with Mitch the sexy, tatted, bad boy biker, oh yeah he’s Marcus’s older half brother.
These three men being back in Clarksville at the same time, turned the one time love triangle into Annie squared. Life just got a whole lot more complicated as the affair with Mitch is not the only thing Annie has been hiding.
Take a small town bakery, 3 HOT dudes, one sexy Annie, reveal a secret or two and add a heaping dose of suspense and what you’ve got is a recipe for a great book.
With the release of Candy Hearts earlier this week and now Double Stuffed Eclairs, Faith Gibson has proven herself a wonderful story teller. Her writing style will have you feeling you want to keep reading. And like with every Sweet Thing, after the last bite, you want more!
I fell in love with Mitch, who would you choose?
