Sweet Cicely by Kelly McCrady
Just in time for Christmas, Cicely Navros has been laid off. She endures a colossally awful day involving a temp agency and the horrors of chintz, a day ending in a soggy walk to the mini-mart for eggs — where she literally runs into Adonis! Whet your appetite for Greek cuisine and satisfy your craving to leave the Christmas lights up all year in this sweet tale of hope and desire.
I recently read Sweet Cicely and have to say that it was a quick, but enjoyable read. Ms. McCrady created likeable characters and an interesting storyline with Sweet Cicely. I could easily relate to Cicely and her string of bad luck…and what woman doesn’t want her own personal Adonis come to life. While the ending was a bit unexpected and a bit abrupt, this was a short, but sweet story that I enjoyed reading. Ms. McCrady shows a lot of talent and promise with her debut book.
I look forward to reading more of her work!
