    Sugar is a charming book about, hard work, determination, friendship, budding romance and a sprinkle of humour to sweeten it up. Not to mention all the scrumptious food. Charlie is a creative and innovative pastry chef, who is stuck in rutt waiting for her dream promotion. Eventua...

    3.5 stars If you have an appetite for a sweet romance that involves delectable dessert descriptions (no recipes, though, at least not in the advance copy), an appealing Seattle setting, and two engaging characters (although at first the main character was a little irritating), this ...

    There is not much better in life than a book that revolves around food and romance and this book had those two things in spades so you can bet that I devoured every page, pun intended. Charlie was so much fun to read about. I loved her dilemmas in the kitchen and out. And of course...

    Going to go with four stars since I did enjoy a lot about this book. I just wish the author had surprised us with an ending that had the main character (Charlie) realize that if she is going to date someone, that they had to not only trust her, but understand her job. I had some dissat...

    I always enjoy books where cooking is a part of passion or profession, and Sugar did not disappoint in that regard. Charlie Garrett is an extremely organised, well put together and driven workaholic. She's been working very hard in a prestigious restaurant in New York on a promise...

    I received a copy of this book via NetGalley. I am so glad I've finished reading this book. I've just wanted to sit and eat sweet stuff and drink coffee for the 3 days it's taken me to read. That's what this book does to you with all the mouthwatering descriptions of food. It i...

    How could I turn down a book about a pastry chef, reality TV, and romance? There's nothing here that is not entirely predictable but I still liked it. This is 4 stars graded among books of it's type and not all books in the world. For me, this one delivered just what a I want a flu...

    Charlie is an overworked under appreciated pastry chef in New York. When her ex calls her out of the blue to become the head pastry chef of his new restaurant in Seattle, she is shocked. OMG everything in this book sounded delicious. This book described so many wonderful desser...

    Life is too short to keep reading this book. It is not horrible, it is just not good. It is bland, predictable, and the premise is not well integrated. I don't particularly like the characters. Wait, that's not fair, I don't know enough about the characters to not like them, because th...

    I won Sugar in the Goodreads giveaway, which I was really excited about as the blurb and good reviews made me eager to check out this new to me author. I enjoyed the read, but didn't love it as much as I hoped. I felt the novel lacked chemistry and spark between the main couple, which ...

    If you like those reality tv shows about food prep and cooking, this will be one fun, and romantic, read! I'd guess it would be a good summer read myself. I found it a little lite for my winter reading, but it was enjoyable with fun characters in an interesting setting! I received a K...

    Fantastic book-sweet and savory and hits all the right notes! ...

    I give this read 2.5 stars. In the first 2/3's of the book I felt that things were overwhelmingly detailed so much it was like a monotone voice that dragged on and on. I could not get into this book until the last chapter. I can say this book was not for me. There was not enough roman...

    Fans of Kimberly Stuart's trademark wit and charm will adore this comedic romp. Charlie is a measure-thrice, alphabetize-everything nut of a pastry chef. A move to Seattle throws this lovable control freak into the world of reality TV and the arms of swoon-worthy Kai. Sigh. But don't l...

    This review is based on the ARC received from the author and/ or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion. 2.5 Read when hungry. ...

    Three and a half stars. Charlie Garrett is an assistant pastry chef at a high-end restaurant in New York. For years the head chef has been promising to promote her to head pastry chef, when the current pastry chef retires. In the meantime she works ridiculous hours, suffers daily hu...

    Hate is a strong word... But I hated this book Full disclosure I had to skim this book just to finish it. Mostly because it was clear after the first chapter. That this book belonged in my least favorite sub-genre of book. A genre I like to call "healed by a penis". Charlie (anoth...

    Charlie is an assistant pastry chef at a restaurant in New York. For ten years does patience and endure the particularities of pastry chef at least until he retired ... something he never does. By the time an old-ex boyfriend proposed position of pastry chef at his restaurant. In Seat...

    Sugar is a charming book about, hard work, determination, friendship, budding romance and a sprinkle of humour to sweeten it up. Not to mention all the scrumptious food. Charlie is a creative and innovative pastry chef, who is stuck in rutt waiting for her dream promotion. Eventua...

    3.5 stars If you have an appetite for a sweet romance that involves delectable dessert descriptions (no recipes, though, at least not in the advance copy), an appealing Seattle setting, and two engaging characters (although at first the main character was a little irritating), this ...

    4.5 Stars! Sugar initially drew my interest because of the delicious looking dessert on the cover and ended up being a charming story about a woman who questions what she wants in life and sets about getting it. Charlie Garrett works as an assistant pastry chef at a high-profile ...

    I loved this book! Curl up with your favorite dessert and indulge in this novel filled with bittersweet twists and turns life has to offer. ...

    I received a free digital copy from the author/publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Charlie Garett dreams of running her own kitchen as a pastry chef but is stuck under the control of a crazy top chef in a high class New York restaurant. When her ex-boyfriend o...

    There is not much better in life than a book that revolves around food and romance and this book had those two things in spades so you can bet that I devoured every page, pun intended. Charlie was so much fun to read about. I loved her dilemmas in the kitchen and out. And of course...

    *did not finish* I made it 20% through before I stopped reading. The cover and storyline first drew me to this novel, along with knowing Kimberly Stuart has written in the Christian fiction genre. Sugar, however, is secular fiction with proof in chapter 1 with an expletive and som...

    Going to go with four stars since I did enjoy a lot about this book. I just wish the author had surprised us with an ending that had the main character (Charlie) realize that if she is going to date someone, that they had to not only trust her, but understand her job. I had some dissat...

    I always enjoy books where cooking is a part of passion or profession, and Sugar did not disappoint in that regard. Charlie Garrett is an extremely organised, well put together and driven workaholic. She's been working very hard in a prestigious restaurant in New York on a promise...

    I received a copy of this book via NetGalley. I am so glad I've finished reading this book. I've just wanted to sit and eat sweet stuff and drink coffee for the 3 days it's taken me to read. That's what this book does to you with all the mouthwatering descriptions of food. It i...

    How could I turn down a book about a pastry chef, reality TV, and romance? There's nothing here that is not entirely predictable but I still liked it. This is 4 stars graded among books of it's type and not all books in the world. For me, this one delivered just what a I want a flu...

    Charlie is an overworked under appreciated pastry chef in New York. When her ex calls her out of the blue to become the head pastry chef of his new restaurant in Seattle, she is shocked. OMG everything in this book sounded delicious. This book described so many wonderful desser...

    Life is too short to keep reading this book. It is not horrible, it is just not good. It is bland, predictable, and the premise is not well integrated. I don't particularly like the characters. Wait, that's not fair, I don't know enough about the characters to not like them, because th...

    I won Sugar in the Goodreads giveaway, which I was really excited about as the blurb and good reviews made me eager to check out this new to me author. I enjoyed the read, but didn't love it as much as I hoped. I felt the novel lacked chemistry and spark between the main couple, which ...

    If you like those reality tv shows about food prep and cooking, this will be one fun, and romantic, read! I'd guess it would be a good summer read myself. I found it a little lite for my winter reading, but it was enjoyable with fun characters in an interesting setting! I received a K...

    I received this book as a First Reads giveaway from Skyhorse Publishing. As an avid baker and lover of ambitious female protagonists, I had high hopes for this story about a high-powered pastry chef and what I assumed would be her struggles to balance success in a commercial kitchen...

    Short and sweet and just what I needed. I did get a bit homesick for Seattle while reading this and had to put it down, otherwise I probably would have read the entire thing yesterday. This is the first food book I have read from the dessert part of the kitchen. ...

    After realizing her coworkers at L?Ombre, a high-profile restaurant in NYC, will never appreciate or respect her, Charlie Garrett allows her ex-boyfriend, Avery Michaels, to convince her to work for him as executive pastry chef at his new Seattle hotspot, Thrill. She?ll have her ow...

    Fantastic book-sweet and savory and hits all the right notes! ...

    I give this read 2.5 stars. In the first 2/3's of the book I felt that things were overwhelmingly detailed so much it was like a monotone voice that dragged on and on. I could not get into this book until the last chapter. I can say this book was not for me. There was not enough roman...

    Fans of Kimberly Stuart's trademark wit and charm will adore this comedic romp. Charlie is a measure-thrice, alphabetize-everything nut of a pastry chef. A move to Seattle throws this lovable control freak into the world of reality TV and the arms of swoon-worthy Kai. Sigh. But don't l...

    Three and a half stars. Charlie Garrett is an assistant pastry chef at a high-end restaurant in New York. For years the head chef has been promising to promote her to head pastry chef, when the current pastry chef retires. In the meantime she works ridiculous hours, suffers daily hu...

    Hate is a strong word... But I hated this book Full disclosure I had to skim this book just to finish it. Mostly because it was clear after the first chapter. That this book belonged in my least favorite sub-genre of book. A genre I like to call "healed by a penis". Charlie (anoth...

    Charlie Garrett is tired of holding out for a promotion at the Manhattan eatery where she's been slaving away for years as an underappreciated pastry chef. But then her ex-boyfriend and culinary school classmate Avery offers her a position as head pastry chef at his new restaurant in S...

    How could I turn down a book about a pastry chef, reality TV, and romance? There's nothing here that is not entirely predictable but I still liked it. This is 4 stars graded among books of it's type and not all books in the world. For me, this one delivered just what a I want a flu...

    Charlie is an overworked under appreciated pastry chef in New York. When her ex calls her out of the blue to become the head pastry chef of his new restaurant in Seattle, she is shocked. OMG everything in this book sounded delicious. This book described so many wonderful desser...

    Life is too short to keep reading this book. It is not horrible, it is just not good. It is bland, predictable, and the premise is not well integrated. I don't particularly like the characters. Wait, that's not fair, I don't know enough about the characters to not like them, because th...

    I won Sugar in the Goodreads giveaway, which I was really excited about as the blurb and good reviews made me eager to check out this new to me author. I enjoyed the read, but didn't love it as much as I hoped. I felt the novel lacked chemistry and spark between the main couple, which ...

    If you like those reality tv shows about food prep and cooking, this will be one fun, and romantic, read! I'd guess it would be a good summer read myself. I found it a little lite for my winter reading, but it was enjoyable with fun characters in an interesting setting! I received a K...

    I received this book as a First Reads giveaway from Skyhorse Publishing. As an avid baker and lover of ambitious female protagonists, I had high hopes for this story about a high-powered pastry chef and what I assumed would be her struggles to balance success in a commercial kitchen...

    Short and sweet and just what I needed. I did get a bit homesick for Seattle while reading this and had to put it down, otherwise I probably would have read the entire thing yesterday. This is the first food book I have read from the dessert part of the kitchen. ...

    After realizing her coworkers at L?Ombre, a high-profile restaurant in NYC, will never appreciate or respect her, Charlie Garrett allows her ex-boyfriend, Avery Michaels, to convince her to work for him as executive pastry chef at his new Seattle hotspot, Thrill. She?ll have her ow...

    Fantastic book-sweet and savory and hits all the right notes! ...

    This is the story of Charlie, a thirty-something baker who dreams of calling the shots. But working long night after long night without getting much credit makes the dream seem further and further from her grasp. Then an old friend gets in touch, making an offer she can?t refuse. Ult...

    I give this read 2.5 stars. In the first 2/3's of the book I felt that things were overwhelmingly detailed so much it was like a monotone voice that dragged on and on. I could not get into this book until the last chapter. I can say this book was not for me. There was not enough roman...

    Fans of Kimberly Stuart's trademark wit and charm will adore this comedic romp. Charlie is a measure-thrice, alphabetize-everything nut of a pastry chef. A move to Seattle throws this lovable control freak into the world of reality TV and the arms of swoon-worthy Kai. Sigh. But don't l...

    This review is based on the ARC received from the author and/ or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion. 2.5 Read when hungry. ...

    Three and a half stars. Charlie Garrett is an assistant pastry chef at a high-end restaurant in New York. For years the head chef has been promising to promote her to head pastry chef, when the current pastry chef retires. In the meantime she works ridiculous hours, suffers daily hu...

    Hate is a strong word... But I hated this book Full disclosure I had to skim this book just to finish it. Mostly because it was clear after the first chapter. That this book belonged in my least favorite sub-genre of book. A genre I like to call "healed by a penis". Charlie (anoth...

    Charlie Garrett is tired of holding out for a promotion at the Manhattan eatery where she's been slaving away for years as an underappreciated pastry chef. But then her ex-boyfriend and culinary school classmate Avery offers her a position as head pastry chef at his new restaurant in S...

    2/5 I have to be honest, I wasn?t expecting too much from this book, but I was gladly surprised. At least at first. Because the writing is very good, the story had a big potential, but I needed SO MUCH more passion between Charlie and Kai. There was more passion between Charli...

    Initially, I connected with Charlie, the assistant pastry chef. But, I didn't understand why, since she was portrayed as such a strong, driven artiste, that she would invest so many years working for a restaurant where she was blatantly mistreated. When an old flame, Avery, made her an...

    I won a copy of Sugar by Kimberly Stuart in a Goodreads Giveaway. Sugar is a short, sweet romance and, after reading some rather grim books lately, it?s a breath of fresh air. Stuart?s easy writing style is lovely, everything flows naturally. She has created a well-written and f...

    Charlie is an assistant pastry chef at a restaurant in New York. For ten years does patience and endure the particularities of pastry chef at least until he retired ... something he never does. By the time an old-ex boyfriend proposed position of pastry chef at his restaurant. In Seat...

    Sugar is a charming book about, hard work, determination, friendship, budding romance and a sprinkle of humour to sweeten it up. Not to mention all the scrumptious food. Charlie is a creative and innovative pastry chef, who is stuck in rutt waiting for her dream promotion. Eventua...

    3.5 stars If you have an appetite for a sweet romance that involves delectable dessert descriptions (no recipes, though, at least not in the advance copy), an appealing Seattle setting, and two engaging characters (although at first the main character was a little irritating), this ...

    4.5 Stars! Sugar initially drew my interest because of the delicious looking dessert on the cover and ended up being a charming story about a woman who questions what she wants in life and sets about getting it. Charlie Garrett works as an assistant pastry chef at a high-profile ...

    I loved this book! Curl up with your favorite dessert and indulge in this novel filled with bittersweet twists and turns life has to offer. ...

    I received a free digital copy from the author/publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Charlie Garett dreams of running her own kitchen as a pastry chef but is stuck under the control of a crazy top chef in a high class New York restaurant. When her ex-boyfriend o...

    There is not much better in life than a book that revolves around food and romance and this book had those two things in spades so you can bet that I devoured every page, pun intended. Charlie was so much fun to read about. I loved her dilemmas in the kitchen and out. And of course...

    *did not finish* I made it 20% through before I stopped reading. The cover and storyline first drew me to this novel, along with knowing Kimberly Stuart has written in the Christian fiction genre. Sugar, however, is secular fiction with proof in chapter 1 with an expletive and som...

    Going to go with four stars since I did enjoy a lot about this book. I just wish the author had surprised us with an ending that had the main character (Charlie) realize that if she is going to date someone, that they had to not only trust her, but understand her job. I had some dissat...
