Ewan is a swoon-worthy hero who's come to town, and he inadvertently disrupts everyone's lives (or at least it seems that way to Kate Pease, who can't manage to be tranquil in his presence). The tension between them ensures that Sweet Pease is a page-turner because you already know they'll be perfect together and you're just waiting, through all the clumsy words and confusion, for them to figure it out. (They do. The HEA is just as swoon-worthy as the hero).
And finally, the descriptions of food, whipped up by the very talented baker / chef, Kate Pease, are to die for. You could seriously just read the book for that and pretend that Kate is in your kitchen cooking for you right now while you share a drink and chat about that new boy in town. Sweet Pease is a feast for the imagination and the senses. A great romantic read.
Ewan Lovatt’s in Thornton temporarily as a visiting professor. He’s got his hands full teaching at the university, and conducting research at the Damselfly Inn for his next novel. So why can’t he stop thinking about Kate Pease?
Sweet Pease is Ms. Garriepy’s second novel in the Thornton Vermont series. It’s a standalone, but once you get a taste of the author’s writing, you’ll be ordering her other books, too. To read her settings is to be plunged into locales so real you’ll swear you’ve been there. Her scenes involving food (oh my goodness!) are feasts for the senses; delicious, sumptuous, decadent.
But this book is, above all, a romance; and Ms. Garriepy shines nowhere more brightly than when she’s winding up the tension, then unraveling the desire. Trust me. By the end you’ll wish Kate was your best friend, Ewan was your professor, and that you could all sit down together at Sweet Pease for a scrumptious meal served with a side-dish of love.
When visiting author Ewan Lovatt makes the mistake of casually criticizing Kate Pease's scones, it seems likely that a war rather than a romance will result. For Kate is the formidable owner of the Sweet Pease bakery, and a woman who has suffered heartbreak before...
Ms. Garriepy is well-practiced at pulling the reader's heartstrings, and her many fans will not be disappointed in her latest offering in the 'Thornton Vermont' series. Choc-full of sympathetic characters, love, and food, this is a feel-good novel to savour. I put on half a kilo just looking at the cover. Highly recommended for all the romantics out there.
Readers of Cameron D. Garriepy’s first novel, Damselfly Inn, or several of her short stories, will recognize some of the characters in Sweet Pease, though the delectable novel can also be read as a stand-alone. (Though I guarantee if you start with Sweet Pease, you’ll want to read Damselfly Inn as soon as you finish.)
Garriepy’s novels fall into the romance category, and readers will find themselves falling in love with her characters as they fall in love with each other, making the plot twists and turns all the more intriguing — and heartbreaking.
Kate Pease grew up in Thornton, escaped small town living for a while in Paris, and firmly landed back in a place where she still runs into her kindergarten teacher, one of the only people still allowed to call her Katie. In her first Thornton novel, Garriepy explores the idea of an “outsider” making a home in a small town, and Sweet Pease flips that concept around to look at small town life from the eyes of the consummate insider.
When Ewan comes to town to research a novel and impart a little of his creative writing knowledge to the town’s college students, he complicates Kate’s life by becoming more than a passing fling. He’s drawn to Thornton’s stories, but Kate can’t be sure he doesn’t see the town — including Kate and her beloved friends and family — as more fodder for his books.
Sweet Pease looks at love through the lens of people who aren’t sure they need romance to be successful and happy in their lives. Both Kate and Ewan relish their thriving careers, and Garriepy does an excellent job of staying true to their professional passions while kindling the flame on their personal ones. When Sweet Pease ends, I hated leaving Thornton. Thankfully Garriepy promises to come back (at least) one last time in the future third novel in this compelling series.
