Title: Sugar Lump
Author: Megan Gaudino
Date of Publication: Janurary 2018
Seventeen-year-old travel blogger CC is stuck on a never-ending road trip with her wanderlust-addicted father. When her dad lands the job of his dreams in Sugar Lump—wedding capital of the world—CC finally finds a place to call home. Complete with two quirky best friends and a quixotic guy to crush on, Sugar Lump is more shades of perfect than she can possibly count.
But when CC accidentally overhears the mayor complaining that she has to “take out” a rogue employee for not fulfilling the terms of his contract, the idyllic town’s facade crumbles. Devastated by the possibility of having to move yet again, CC discovers everyone has been keeping a massive secret from her—including her own father.
This was a pretty cool book. The town had a very Stepford Wives feel to it, and I loved that aspect!
What I liked best about the MC, CC, was that she had a quirky way of thinking. My favorite line was when she compared something of Thorn’s (the love interest) to Zach Morris. All you gotta do is say Saved by the Bell, and you got me sucked right in!
I read this pretty quickly because I couldn’t put it down and had to know what the heck was going to happen. I would have liked a little more darkness in the reveal of things but overall a super fun read! Also, I hope this is a stand alone because there isn’t enough of those!
How does this book sound to you?
