Book Review: Sweet Confections by Danyelle Ferguson
Author: Danyelle Ferguson
Enjoyment Rating: ***
Source: Digital Copy
Content Alert: a clean read, with some stalkerish violence
Rachel is full-figured and thirtyish and her mother is eager to get her married off. Although she's the owner of a successful bakery, she can't seem to find the same success in her love life. When the book opens, she's just broken up with a creeper who turned out to be married. Then Rachel meets Graydon, also known as GG, also known as the most famous and revered hockey player in Kansas City. He's exactly what Rachel doesn't want in a man, yet she can't help being drawn to him.
I genuinely enjoyed the interactions between Rachel and Graydon in Sweet Confections. Ferguson does a nice job creating believable characters with just the right amount of romantic tension. I'm not sure I liked the way that the story shifted from a romance to a thriller in the second half of the story, and the climax seemed much more plot-driven than character driven. Still, this is a solid romance that would appeal to people who like clean, modern romances with interesting characters.
