Sweet Talk by Susan Mallery
Sweet Talk is the first book of the Bakery Sisters series. Book 2 is Sweet Spot
August 2008 and the final book will be Sweet Trouble September 2008.
Is there anything sweeter than a first love?
Don’t ask Claire Keyes. The twenty-eight-year old piano prodigy has never had a regular boyfriend, much less a real romance. Her music career has left little room for friends or family — which is just part of the reason she’s estranged from her two sisters.
But now Nicole is sick, and Jesse is AWOL. Despite the fact that Claire can’t boil water, she’s determined to play caretaker. Connecting with her sisters tops her to-do list….along with falling in love, or at least in lust, for the first time.
Ambitious? Maybe. But a girl’s gotta dream. And ruggedly sexy Wyatt is a dream come true. Although he keeps telling himself that he and Claire come from entirely different worlds, he lights up hotter than a bakery oven whenever Claire is near. If this keeps up, she just might sweet-talk him into her bed….and her life.
I really enjoyed this book. I don't have any sisters, but after reading this, it gave me an idea of how they could be. It was filled with a smart gifted, woman Claire, who can't really take care of herself, who now wants to make amends with both of her sisters and help care for her twin sister Nicole who is sick. Nicole can be mean with her words and unforgiving. Jesse, who is the youngest of the three, needs alot of growing up to do to become close again, but she seems to keep making mistakes which makes it harder.
Claire holds her ground and who will give everything she has to close the gaps, they are family afterall. She has been having panic attacks which have forced her to leave her profession for now. She meets Wyatt and his little daughter Amy, who can not hear, but can feel the music. Claire has met her match and is falling for Wyatt, who is all against the thought of being involved with any woman, let alone this one. But Claire is one woman he can not resist. Claire wants love, her family together and to be happy. She will succeed.
It's a tasty treat without the added calories.
I'm looking forward to reading the other 2 books, to get to know the sisters.
