Second Chance at the Sugar Shack: A Sugar Shack Novel A witty, sexy small town romance: Candis Terry has created wonderful, believable characters in this story set in  Deer Lick Montana, a small town in rural America. I thoroughly enjoyed this book–a wonderful story of a spunky heroine, a hunky hero, abandoned love and second chances.

The Assignment

I enjoyed this book on so many levels.

I enjoyed the apparent intimacy that Solon has with the Philippines, making me feel that her descriptions of the country, the people and the culture were accurately portrayed and that I could believe that they were a true reflection of the culture. I appreciated the history that she wove into the story, portraying the pain of an actual event in history for the people and the devastation to the country during WW II.

Sophie Mathews and Eric Santiago’s relationship was touching and drew me in from the very beginning. Sophie did not want to accept this one last assignment to the Philippines, but her boss insisted and she went with reluctance and trepidation. She loved the country, but she did not want to see Eric again. She had met him ten years earlier when she had been there on another project. They had fallen in love, but Eric had kept a secret that had torn them apart and she had left feeling hurt and betrayed. However,once she meets Marina Suarez who is the focus of her assignment, she senses that there is a big story surrounding her. Her journalist fervor, her spunk and unflagging determination drives her to discover what Marina’s dark secret is. It is inevitable that Eric and Sophie meet. He still loves her and he does not want to lose her again, but he is caught between his feeling for Sophie and his loyalty to Marina, his long time friend. He knows much of Marina’s secret and he keeps it, even though it could threaten his new beginning with Sophie.

I treasured Marina Suarez’ story; so unlikely, so tragic and so real. It showed her strength and determination, her endurance, her love, her pain and grief, her acceptance, moving on with her life but never forsaking the undying love that she harboured in her heart.

The climax of the story was a real heart tugger and the ending was so fitting. The characters became very real to me and I felt their emotions. There were two heroines in this book for me: Sophie and Marina.

It is a story of incredible characters, love, pain and loss, deep grief, determination and second chances. This is a great read for anyone who enjoys a heart touching read with many twists and turns. I wasn’t disappointed. I don’t think you will be!

This book was a touching story of a first love,death, grief, second chances,moving on with life and a twist of paranormal and mystery. The lives of Greg, Lisa, their daughter Maggie and Lisa’s best friend, Marta, are all interwoven from the very beginning. There were many twists and turns in the story line as the paranormal elements crept in. At first I thought Lisa was the cause of them, but as the story came to the conclusion I realized I was wrong.

This is a good read and I recommend it to anyone who likes something than the regular run of the mill story.

…..Before I begin to explain some of the options and available services here at Outskirts Press, I want to give you my overall impression of your work: You have a terrific writing style. You have obviously done a significant amount planning and preparation in crafting your work. Your prose is nicely written with details that capture the reader. Right from the start your plot was very engaging. You do a nice job of slowly making your way through the story with details and a certain voice that allows your reader to really interact with the characters (who are all round and very nicely developed). The greatest value in fiction, it seems to me, lies in what we can learn about our own lives when we take time to analyze someone else’s — even if that someone else is just a character in a story. Characterization is one of the most important elements of any successful story. I always love it when I leave a story feeling like I know the characters. This is true for your prose. So many authors rush through their stories without really developing them. Not you. Your book read like a movie in my mind. You have crafted a quality piece of writing. Please make sure you discuss your visions with your publishing consultant…….
