Waiting on Wednesday: I Want Candy by Susan Donovan

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I was delighted by Susan Donovan's Cheri on Top - it's funny, romantic, and sweet. I'm really looking forward to the sequel, I Want Candy.

I Want Candy Cover Title: I Want Candy
Author: Susan Donovan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks
Release Date: February 28, 2012

Book Description (from Amazon):

Candace Carmichael was just getting used to the lavish life when everything went sour. Now the down-on-her-luck real estate agent is back in Bigler, North Carolina, jobless and illegally rooming with her her mother in a swank retirement community. All this makes her wonder why she ever considered her BFF Cheri’s invitation to move back home. Life in this small mountain town may not be as glamorous as the one she had in Tampa, but she knows a girl can’t be too choosy in this market. Besides, everyone’s happy to welcome Candy back—especially one handsome widower named Turner...

Turner has grown up to be one fine-looking piece of man candy—and looks even tastier in his sheriff’s uniform. Maybe that’s why she couldn’t resist kissing him when he pulled her over for a traffic violation. Even if a relationship was part of Candy’s business plan, Turner would be off limits—he still wears his wedding ring, four years after his wife died. If falling in love too fast is a crime, Candy is soon guilty as charged and ready to be fingerprinted. But is she ready to lock away her dreams and hand Turner the keys to her heart?

Oh! I haven't expected to see a Susan Donovan this week LOL I've heard some really good things about her. (But some quite horrible as well XD)

I hope you'll get to read this book in Feburary then!

Somehow this doesn't really seem like my kind of thing...but I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for coming by my blog, and I agree that a new Kenyon novel is something to look forwards to!

So cute! Gives me the warm and fuzzies just reading the description. Too bad it's not out yet.

Have an amazing reading week! And happy holidays!

Haven't heard of this author before. I'm not a big contemp fan though. Well more like a super picky contemp reader I guess. I might have to give her a try.
