Présentation de l'éditeur

Ain't She Sweet?
Not exactly . . .

The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever. As the rich, spoiled princess of Parrish, Mississippi, Sugar Beth Carey had broken hearts, ruined friendships, and destroyed reputations. But fifteen years have passed, and life has taught Sugar Beth its toughest lessons. Now she's come home -- broke, desperate, and too proud to show it.

The people of Parrish don't believe in forgive and forget. When the Seawillows, Sugar Beth's former girlfriends, get the chance to turn the tables on her, they don't hesitate. And Winnie Davis, Sugar Beth's most bitter enemy, intends to humiliate her in the worst possible way.

Then there's Colin Byrne. . . . Fifteen years earlier, Sugar Beth had tried to ruin his career. Now he's rich, powerful, and the owner of her old home. Even worse, this modern-day dark prince is planning exactly the sort of revenge best designed to bring a beautiful princess to her knees.

But none of them have reckoned on the unexpected strength of a woman who's learned survival the hard way.

While Sugar Beth's battered heart struggles to overcome old mistakes, Colin must choose between payback and love. Does the baddest girl in town deserve a second chance, or are some things beyond forgiving?

Ain't She Sweet? is a story of courage and redemption. . . of friendship and laughter. . . of love and the possibility of happily-ever-after.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 très jolie histoire, bien écrite 4 novembre 2013
Par Nenuphar
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Ce roman change un peu du style de Susan EP (que je conseille). C'est une bonne surprise à la lecture, on arriverait presque à s'identifier à Sugar Beth, tellement l'histoire est bien écrite. Sugar Beth, l'héroïne, revient dans sa ville natale de nombreuses années après avoir sévit en tant que 'super star' et peste. Sa demi-soeur lui a servi de souffre douleur, les plus beaux garçons lui sont tombés dans les bras. elle a même réussi a faire expulser Colin, le nouveau professeur de langue de son collège.
Elle revient donc plusieurs années après avoir été bien éprouvée par les hommes et la vie, subit la haine et la revanche de son ancien prof devenu un célèbre écrivain. Il y a bien une romance entre cet ancien prof et Sugar Beth, de l'humour (moins que dans les autres romans de SEP) et quelques péripéties.
Une lecture agréable et simple, qui mêle amitiés et amour.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Light novel, heavy questions 17 avril 2004
Par Dr. Cathy Goodwin - Publié sur
This book was given to me for review and my first reaction was, "Not my kind of book!" The book's opening didn't help: -- a disheveled down-and-out southern woman returns to her hometown, driving a beat-up old car, accompanied by her late husband's only legacy: a basset hound she loves to hate.
But after a few pages, I began to care about the story line. Why did Sugar Beth dread returning home? Why did so man people hate her so much? And how can we care about a heroine who's done such despicable things in the past?
This book is a model of a book that's a crossover between romance and women's fiction. The author takes us to the edge of the cliff with a worst case scenario. Sugar Beth, high school prom queen, the girl everybody envied, has become a woman who's lost everything.
Meanwhile, Sugar Beth's former victims have all grown up and become wildly successful. They vividly remember Sugar Beth and they're perfectly positioned to take revenge.
So why doesn't Sugar Beth just go to, say, Los Angeles and get an anonymous job? Turns out she needs to find a painting she inherited. She can sell this unique art work for millions of dollars. And while she hunts for this painting, she needs a job. And who has the power to give her a job? You guessed it: Those she once scorned.
In one climactic scene, Sugar Beth is pitted against these vengeful people and she's in a one-down position. She's backed into a corner.
But Sugar Beth rises to the challenge. She handles herself with dignity and we soon learn her secret reasons for needing the money from the sale of the painting. She's different yet she's held on to the strongest parts of herself. She triumphs by her own grit and we're mostly satisfied with the ending.
The big romance between the two main characters follows conventions of the genre. If you can't figure out who will get together with whom, you haven't read enough, although author Philips throws in enough quirks to keep the romance line from being too trite.
Underneath the main story, the author raises intriguing questions that could keep a book club going for hours. Are we the same people we were ten years ago? Fifteen years ago? Should we be held accountable for dumb things we did when we were seventeen? And should people pay for those mistakes for the rest of their lives?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The BEST Story I've read in a long time 27 mars 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur
I'm a big SEP fan because she writes funny, quirky characters who aren't your run-of-the-mill romance novel characters and she writes the absolute best dialogue I've ever read.
This book is phenomenal. I could not put it down. Some parts had me laughing out loud and others just made me want to cry. Sugar Beth was a spiteful, mean-spirited girl in her youth, most especially to Winnie, but SEP delves so deeply into Sugar Beth's psyche that you understand why she acted the way she did. Her motivations are very clear. The Sugar Beth we meet at the beginning of the book has grown up and taken her fair share of lumps and she ends up taking several more before the book is through. But she doesn't let any of it break her spirit.
I'm a sucker for a heroine who's a wise ass and a hero who can throw it right back at her and that's Sugar Beth and Colin. They are just so funny together, yet touching at the same time. The kind hero and heroine that stay with you long after you've finished reading the book.
This is a wonderful story. I wish I could have given it more stars.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A terrific bunch of women . . . 8 mars 2004
Par Jenny Crusie Smith - Publié sur
This book has great female characters--especially Sugar Beth, Winnie, and Gigi--and a wonderful sense of community. Top that off with a trademark SEP romance and it's just flat-out fun. She gets extra points with me for trying a very different kind of heroine and pulling it off beautifully. Susan truly is the queen of romantic comedy.
(Note: I posted a review of this two weeks ago and it still hasn't appeared so I'm trying it again. If two reviews from me show up, it's not because I'm padding Susan's rating, it's because the other one wandered around in the ether for awhile, although this book is worth ten stars, so it's all good.)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Southern fried fable of redemption 16 mai 2005
Par Tracy Vest - Publié sur
Thrice married Sugar Beth Carey was once the town golden girl of Parrish, Mississippi, but all her past misdeeds have caught up with her as she returns to her hometown for the first time in 15 years, in the role of town pariah. Disinherited by the father whose love she always sought but never achieved, she returns to collect an inheritance from her aunt. Instead of the family estate, she's relegated to the carriage house where she searches for a hidden valuable work of art.

Just about everyone in town is looking forward to her return to even old scores. No one is happier to see her squirm than her former teacher, Colin. Fifteen years earlier, Sugar Beth accused Colin of making a pass at her in order to deflect blame for an embarrassing incident she instigated against her arch nemesis, Winnie Davis. Colin, now a successful writer, resides in her former estate. With no one willing to give her a job, she's stuck working as Colin's maid (which makes for some of the most humorous passages in the novel, particularly when she calls him a prissy Brit and questions his sexuality), and in a turn of events, it's Winnie who is the belle of the town. While Colin entertains revenge fantasies as payback, she disappoints him by rising above it all and swallowing her pride, thereby taking the joy from him. Colin finds himself smitten with this new Sugar Beth, and her former home town finally realizes that she actually may have grown up and deserves to be forgiven for her past sins.

SEP cannot be beaten in creating endearing, flawed, and charismatic characters. Her realistic dialogue and gift for plotting make her a standout among her peers. She left the comfort zone of her Chicago Stars series, and yet has created endearing characters that for the most part, you'd want to know. I never expected to like this book as much as I did, which makes it all the more refreshing. I found it to be captivating and was glued to the final page.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 good, but not the best 23 juin 2004
Par nico03 - Publié sur
"Ain't She Sweet?" is the Sam's Choice of Susan Elizabeth Phillip's novels--still quality, but just not quite as satisfying. As usual, the characters are memorable and quirky and the dialogue is the best to be found in romantic fiction. The snappy humor is, of course, still there. But the empathy I usually feel for SEP's characters was a little disconnected, and there was a lot less sizzle between the hero and heroine.
I think the biggest hurdle for SEP was to make some difficult characters likable- who, as some other reviewers noted, seemed to be stuck in high school, both in memory and maturity. Although by my experience growing up in a small southern town, it's a pretty accurate description, it still doesn't lead to a very likeable cast. However, SEP treats her characters objectively, with just the right note of respect and criticism. In the end, I have to say I liked all of the cast, but I don't think I'll be revisiting them like the character's in SEP's NFL series.
If you are a fan of Ms. Phillip's I recommend this book because it is certainly still good. Just don't expect it to live up to "Nobody's Baby But Mine" or "This Heart of Mine." Buy it used and you won't regret it.
