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, 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. 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 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 marieno | 1/13/2014

    " I loved it! It's all because of the characters! I loved that Sugar Beth doesn't apologize for the past. (It wouldn't change it anyway) I loved that at first, Colin thought he needed his revenge on her and that it backfired on him. The same goes with Winnie. I kept waiting for her to do something awful. I liked Ryan who was stuck in his happiness and Gigi was credible as a teen struggling to be accepted by her peers. "

    " Revenge, and well deserved revenge. The entire party scene was angsty, but I felt proud of Sugar Beth for how she chose to handle it. She deserved everything she got, and then some, but, being the main character, I had more insight into what she'd been through, so I had sympathy. "
