About the Book
Sweet on You(Bradford Sisters #3) By Becky Wade
Christian Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 368 Pages
April 30th 2019 by Bethany House Publishers
Britt Bradford and Zander Ford have been the best of friends since they met thirteen years ago. Unbeknown to Britt, Zander has been in love with her for just as long.
Independent and adventurous Britt channels her talent into creating chocolates at her hometown shop. Zander is a bestselling author who’s spent the past 18 months traveling the world. He’s achieved a great deal but still lacks the only thing that ever truly mattered to him–Britt’s heart.
When Zander’s uncle dies of mysterious causes, he returns to Merryweather, Washington, to investigate, and Britt is immediately there to help. Although this throws them into close proximity, both understand that an attempt at romance could jeopardize their once-in-a-lifetime friendship. But while Britt is determined to resist any change in their relationship, Zander finds it increasingly difficult to keep his feelings hidden.
As they work together to uncover his uncle’s tangled past, will the truth of what lies between them also, finally, come to light?
Sigh. While I know that all good things must come to an end, it’s hard to say goodbye to a series you love so much! I have become close to the Bradford sisters, and kind of consider them my book friends. I’ve been able to connect with each sister in a different way, and was so excited to learn more about Britt.
I think what I was most looking forward to in this book was finally reading about Britt and Zander. I am a sucker for friendships that grow into romance, but this was so much more. Britt and Zander had such a close relationship as friends. And yes, I realize this is really the premise for their fabulous love story, but I have to admit something. I kind of, almost agree with Britt even though I didn’t want to. Perhaps them going into uncharted territory would ruin their friendship. Being that close and having a romance that crashes and burns does not lead to a great relationship afterwards. How could it? So the whole time I’m reading, I’m wondering how Wade is going to change my mind. How is she going to change their minds?
In true Becky Wade fashion, it all came together beautifully, and better then I had hoped for. I think she changed me right along with the characters, and that is no easy feat! The first kiss? I was thinking about that long afterwards, and what’s funny is it wasn’t the type of kiss I was expecting. And maybe that’s why I enjoyed it so much. Thank you Becky Wade for being a masterful writer!!!
Romance aside, Wade brings in this mysterious storyline that I found myself totally immersed in. I was not expecting this either, I just thought it was going to be the Britt and Zander romance and nothing more. This added depth to the story as well as the characters. In Zander’s search for answers you see his character in a whole new light. If I didn’t already like him (which I did), the swoon notch went up about five clicks! And my favorite quote of his in the entire book – “If Britt married anyone other than him he’d have to move to Iceland and live in a hut without Wi-Fi.” That’s not a man in love or anything 😉
Wade also brings a beautiful faith element in her stories, reminding readers of their reliance on the One who gives us everything we need, in His timing. Zander said something early on in the story that really resonated with me. “When you prayed for something every day and heard nothing but silence for more than a decade, it ground down your hope like corn into cornmeal.” He was essentially questioning if God was even hearing his prayers and wondering why God wasn’t answering them. I have to admit that I’ve felt that very same way a time or two. But listen to what Zander says a few moments later. “God was still good. God was still dependable.” That is 100% correct. What a beautiful reminder that God gives us what is best for us, in His perfect timing. Even if it is ten years later!
This book is a must read for Christian Romance fans. But please, start at the beginning of the series if you haven’t read it. You’ll just get so much more out of it this way!! I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
