Sweet Cranberries by Sherry Kyle
Amanda Richards has a going-nowhere job and a nosy mother determined to marry her off. So when her aunt and uncle ask Amanda to take over their beloved Blue Crab Café, Amanda leaps at the chance at a fresh start – and on her favorite island of Nantucket. But the changes she wants to make to the café rub the locals the wrong way – especially handsome electrician Tyler Adams.
Tyler is finally managing to put his failed engagement behind him, but he gets off on the wrong foot with Amanda. When Amanda impulsively offers to run the community’s annual Cranberry Festival to prove she has the town’s best interest at heart, Tyler volunteers to help her. However, to make a success of the festival means herding a group of eccentrics – who may or may not be able to come through.
Set in autumn amid the charm of Nantucket, Sweet Cranberries is a delightful novella about giving people a chance and about fresh starts. Sherry Kyle‘s fun banter and eccentric locals make this a story full of laughter and heart. Enjoy! By the way, it even includes a recipe for Clara Reynolds’s famous Cranberry Crunch Bars – which I’m going to try!
