Book Blurb
After years of looking for a place to belong, Paula Andrews finally finds her niche in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Her soap and candle shop flourishes, and her friendship with the Papadopoulos family gives her the love and support she never got from her own family.

The only thing missing is a romance—or in the grand hopes of the Papadopoulos family, a proper marriage. Preferably with Nick, their favorite son, currently serving in the Air Force. Paula, however, has doubts. After all, he’s been gone a long time and loves flying. Their lives have grown apart. Would he still feel anything for her?

When Nick comes home on leave, sparks fly, and not just with Paula. Nick’s father wants him home, helping with the family sponge-diving business. His mother wants him back in the family, back in church. Nick just wants Paula . . . and the Air Force.

So who’s going to give in first? And what will it mean for their love and future?

My Review

Sweet Baklava……by Debby Mayne

Paula Andrews owns a Soap and Candle Shop in Tarpon Springs Florida. After moving around all of her life with her mother, she has finally found a place to belong and her shop is booming with business, especially after she started selling her products on the internet.

Nick Papadopoulos will be home soon from the Air Force and he knows his father will pressure him to change his mind about re-enlisting and joining the family business. The decision might be easier if he knew how Paula felt about him. Maybe he would find that answer when he arrived home.

First of all, I don’t think this book no where near is as bad as the reviews that’s it has gotten. I enjoyed the story actually. I liked the idea of Nick and Paula’s relationship heating up after so many years, and that they come from completely different backgrounds. And I love Nick’s family and the close relationship they have, it reminds me of my own family. I did get frustrated a bit about the ins and outs of the relationship through the entire book, and then at the end, boom, it just happens all of a sudden. But Overall Sweet Baklava was a good summer read with a wonderful family to get to know and a sweet couple that finally found their way back to each other. I encourage you to grab a copy of this book and read it, and see what you think!

I received this book free from Abingdon Press to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55
