    1 thought on “The Sweetest Thing

    1. The Sweetest Thing is a book about a divorced woman with three children who starts a baking service and finds out that animals aren't terrifying, that she can get by on her own, and that she'd rather have a man to share the troubles. It's an at-times funny book, with no high-flown ideas. It's perfect for reading on the beach (but then again, I could and would read anything on the beach, including War and Peace or some equally heavy tome). Better say, it's perfect for reading in line for the dent [...]

    2. Originally published at Reading RealityThere’s just something about this book that draws you right in. Or at least it did me. I was hooked on Jennie’s story from the very first page.This isn’t a story of high drama or rich billionaires, it’s a quiet story about people taking the courage to pick up their dreams and start over. Everyone in this tale is starting over and finding a new path in life; all the kids and all the adults.That turns out to include Jennie Copeland’s ex-husband Davi [...]

    3. The Sweetest Thing by Cathy Woodman is a beautiful story about a single mother who moves to the countryside from London and sets up her own bakery business. Soon she falls in love with her next-door farmer neighbor. It is a good story, and as you follow them you keep turning the pages. The Sweetest Thing is delightful and makes you feel good all throughout the story, and at the end. You won’t be disappointed.

    4. A highly enjoyable book! If u want a story that involves baking, sexy farmers & country-life than this is the book for you.

    5. Didn't enjoy it as much as book #2. Not enough drama, the character of Adam just didn't ring very true for me, and I didn't like everyone's taking to calling it "Jennie's Folly" instead of "Uphill House". Good story, otherwise, though.

    6. Cathy Woodmans neuester Roman “Schnupperküsse”, erschienen im Blanvalet Verlag, entführt uns wieder einmal aus der Großstadt London auf das schöne, gemütliche, aber auch chaotische Land, nach Talyton St. George.Nach der Trennung von ihrem Mann zieht Jennie gemeinsam mit ihren drei Kindern in ein altes, aber charmantes Farmhaus. Sie hat sich in das Häuschen sofort verliebt, doch für ihren 14-jährigen Sohn bedeutet es die völlige Abschottung vom Großstadtleben und seinen Freunden. Di [...]

    7. Last year I read and loved Cathy Woodman’s first two novels in her Talyton St. Georgie series: Trust Me, I’m A Vet and Must Be Love. So I was thrilled when I learned Cathy was working on a new novel. And while The Sweetest Thing is set in Talyton St. Georgie, the focus has moved from Maz and her vet’s clinic to a new character, Jennie. I was thrilled to receive an early copy to review and sat down one Saturday afternoon when I was feeling a bit low to devour it. I wanted to make it last ov [...]

    8. Two books which I really enjoyed last year were Trust Me I'm A Vet and also It Must Be Love both by Cathy Woodman. Both of the books were following Maz and Alex who were vets in the village of Talyton St. George. I have been keeping a close eye on Cathy Woodman's website waiting for the date for her new book to be released and at long last it has arrived. The Sweetest Thing is the title of her new book and for those of you who were fans of her previous books you will not miss this book as the fr [...]

    9. Once in a while, I enjoy those poignant stories that start with a woman having to start over and rebuild her life. A story that goes along tamely through simple activities while full of emotion and ending on a high note looking back to show how far the heroine has come. This was my first time reading this author and her stories about a little Devon village, but I will definitely be going back for more.Jennie Copeland decides she and her children need a fresh start so she moves them out of London [...]

    10. Jennie Copeland has agreed to completely swear off men forever following the divorce of her husband David eighteen months ago, after learning he was in love with someone he worked with who was much younger than she was. Now Jennie has opted to move to the quiet country away from the city that once consumed her and her three children, even if it means leaving all traces of their former life behind as well as friends and family. Moving to a small four acre farm in Devon, she has found the inspirat [...]

    11. I loved the sound of this book, as a country girl with a love of baked goods it sounded right up my street. I’d previously read and enjoyed Cathy Woodman’s first novel, Under The Bonnet so I was keen to get reading.The plot is pretty standard chick lit fare, the kind you start reading and it all feels comfortable and familiar. The book starts with the Copeland family’s arrival at their new home, within the first chapter Jennie has crossed paths with potential love interest Guy (though of c [...]

    12. The Sweetest ThingCathy WoodmanThis book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review by NetGally.This was definately my kind of story. It really had a heart, had a good deep story line throughout the entire book. It starts out with our heroine, Miss Jeannie Copeland, she is leaving the city and moving out to the country with her three children after her husband leaves her for another woman. This takes real guts. Sure the kids are not happy having to live out in the middle of nowhere but sh [...]

    13. After being essentially traded in for a younger model, Jennie finds herself a single mother to her three children. Having always been the stay at home wife and mother, she now finds herself in need of a fresh new start. And so she buys a run down (but charming) home in Talyton St. George and plans to open her own cake shop. She knows baking is her forte but now it's up to her to prove it to the villagers, many of whom aren't too happy about an outsider horning in on the local baking market. Plus [...]

    14. This is the third novel by Cathy Woodman in the Talyton St George series (preceded by Trust Me, I'm a Vet and Must Be Love). This book can be picked up without having read either of the previous two, since the events of The Sweetest Thing follow new character Jennie as she moves from the city to the country after a divorce to start up a new cake-baking business.Cathy Woodman is really getting up to speed now! I was a little uncertain about her first novel, but enjoyed her second thoroughly. This [...]

    15. I love the Talyton St George series by Cathy Woodman and although I’ve not read them in order I’ve enjoyed them nonetheless. This was the only one I hadn’t read so when I saw it at a bargain price in my local book shop I just had to buy it!Right from the start I got the sense of new beginnings – Jennie was attempting to rebuild her life after her divorce and was clearly feeling the strain. Her move to the countryside from London was entertaining and regularly had me chuckling, adapting t [...]

    16. The Sweetest Thing by Cathy Woodman is a fun and sweet book that I really enjoyed. It has all the elements I enjoy like family drama, a little romance, and just plain old good and easy reading.Jennie’s life is great. She has three beautiful kids and a husband she loves. All is well until her husband David tells her he is leaving her for another woman. Instead of completely wallowing in her misery she decides instead to follow a dream of her own.She buys a ramshackle old house out on a farm in [...]

    17. "The Sweetest Thing" is a super cute tale of Jennie and her family who move to the country to start their lives over after Jennie's marriage ends. I really enjoyed this tale. Jennie has to re-build her life and the book shows how she goes about that. The small community that she moves to is in the middle of nowhere in England. Everyone knows everyone and not everyone is so welcoming to Jennie and her family since they are the newcomers. Will they ever be able to find their place?Although this bo [...]

    18. After a painful divorce, Jennie upsticks and moves into the country to open up her own Baking Business, which she calls, Jennies's Folly. Along with her three children she moves into Up HIll House. There she meets a farmer who befreinds her. Guy Barnes is very charming but it's obvious he holds a secret that makes him reserved, rude and out of reach. Upon first meeting, Guy tells Jennie she won't last at Taylton Saint George a year. After getting off on the wrong foot, Guy and Jennie slowly begi [...]

    19. Pretty good storyline and I loved the characters. Each person had distinctive personalities and stories. You wished for David to grow a pair and for Jennie to not be such a blonde and think things through and for Adam to open his eyes and realise that he had it pretty good, but it made these characters so believable.Star off for the fact that it had such a simplistic ending though. Wasn't it just amazing how everything turned out perfectly in the end? *sarcasm*There was no in-depth reasoning for [...]

    20. “The Sweetest Thing” is the 3rd book in the Talyton St George series. Whilst the previous two books have focused on Otter House Vets and the relationship between vets Alex and Maz, this book introduces us to a new member if the community, Jennie Copeland and her family who recently moved into Uphill House on the outskirts of Talyton. Single mum Jennie intends to start a new life at Uphill House following a rather acrimonious divorce from her ex-husband David but starting a new life and a new [...]

    21. This is a story about a mother of three children, Jennie Copeland, who moves her broken family from London to the Devonshire countryside after she discovers her husband has been having a long standing affair. She figures it'll be great for her and the children to get a new fresh start. Jennie is also going to make a start on having a go at her own baking business. Her ex-husband is skeptical about her making a living and being difficult about the kids and the move, her 14 year old son Adam is un [...]

    22. I liked it, I really did. I enjoyed the writing, the characters, and the plot. I couldn't get past the fact that I disagreed with some things though! Changing the name of her ancient cottage, at a time when she was trying to fit in with the locals, was a ridiculous thing for the heroine to do. I fail to see how she was able to afford to run a home, three children, a pony, a dog, and a flock of hens on the sale of a few cakes, as well. The author is a vet and I like the fact that she wove in some [...]

    23. This was a great book! It is the third book in the Talyton St. George series. However, it can be read as a standalone. This was the first book that I have read by Cathy Woodman, and now I want to go back and read the other books in this series. Jennie is recently divorced and wants a fresh start so she starts a baking service; she also buys a house that needs repairs along with some animals. She meets her sexy neighbor Guy Barnes. This book kept my attention from the first page and I couldn’t [...]

    24. I really enjoyed this book, the 3rd in the Talyton St George series. This book isn't centered around the Vets but Jennie and her 3 children, who have moved from London after Jennie and her husband David divorced. Jennie has bought and moved into Uphill Cottage on Guy Barnes farm, she intends to start a cake making business from home. The story is about how they settle in, how the children cope with the move and how Guy, having come through a bitter divorce of his own, starts to believe he may ha [...]

    25. Divorced mum of 3 Jennie Copeland moves to Talyton St George, she buys a house, she intends to start a new cake making business, also becomes the proud owner of a Pony, Dog and Chickens.She soon discovers life is not what she thought it would be, she starts off on the wrong foot with her Neighbour Guy Barnes he says she will sell up and return to London within a year, David (her ex) seems to think the same can she prove them all wrong?This is the best book I have read by this Author, I find the [...]

    26. Started of okayish, then I found it a struggle to continue. I found it unnecessary for the author to continuously plod on about making the cakes and such - I folded in the four, I beat the egg then I did that, then I did this - I'm sorry if I wanted to read simple boring text about making cakes I would have read my mum's Bero cookbook passed down from her mum and granny alike. It wasn't as if the instructions of how she made the cake was helpful in anyway, a school kid would know the steps that [...]
