This is the first Susan Elizabeth Phillips book I've read, but I enjoyed it so much that it won't be the last. It is amusing, witty, and kept me reading to the last page.

Perfect complement of storyteller and narrator. You will laugh, you will cry, you will be wholly entertained. The BEST book I have read in a long time... I did not want it to end!

Very witty, and full of great bickering script. Didn't care for the revenge plot, but the ending is sweet.

I really enjoyed this book, bless its heart, mostly for the hero Colin and his British dandy-isms juxtaposed against the antics of the large Southern cast of characters. Hopefully that mouthful of a sentence made sense. The book made me laugh out loud, especially when Sugar Beth would call him "Your Grace". After reading I ordered several more of SEP's works.

I didn't think I'd like this book to be perfectly honest. However, the author created a realistic story with so many problems, not overly done, but told the story in such a way you were hung to every word. I liked all the characters, Sugar Beth (though not the name), I liked Colin and Winnie and Ryan and Gigi. They all grew and you enjoyed the unravelling of this great story. A real good read! (or listen as I did)

A great read. True Southern comfort and "small town charm". Great humor and a wonderfully romance. Love the solid characters. You almost fill you know them. While are two great central characters, the entire cast are the heroines and heroes. I would loge to see this in a movie.

SEP is one of my favorite authors. With main character Sugar Beth Carey, she has written another book full of funny zingers and a great love story. Enjoy!

The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever. As the rich, spoiled princess of Parrish, Mississippi, Sugar Beth Carey had broken hearts, ruined friendships, and destroyed reputations. But fifteen years have passed, and life has taught Sugar Beth its toughest lessons. Now she's come home -- broke, desperate, and too proud to show it.

The people of Parrish don't believe in forgive and forget. When the Seawillows, Sugar Beth's former girlfriends, get the chance to turn the tables on her, they don't hesitate. And Winnie Davis, Sugar Beth's most bitter enemy, intends to humiliate her in the worst possible way.

Then there's Colin Byrne. . . . Fifteen years earlier, Sugar Beth had tried to ruin his career. Now he's rich, powerful, and the owner of her old home. Even worse, this modern-day dark prince is planning exactly the sort of revenge best designed to bring a beautiful princess to her knees.

But none of them have reckoned on the unexpected strength of a woman who's learned survival the hard way.

While Sugar Beth's battered heart struggles to overcome old mistakes, Colin must choose between payback and love. Does the baddest girl in town deserve a second chance, or are some things beyond forgiving?

Ain't She Sweet? is a story of courage and redemption. . . of friendship and laughter. . . of love and the possibility of happily-ever-after.

Sugar Beth grew up in a small town and when she was in her high school years she was both popular and a mean girl. She is returning but only to get some things from her inheritance and then leave, but she is confronted by people from her past and she has to choose how she is going to respond.

Sugar Beth ends up living in the guest house of her childhood home and I loved how one of the people she persecuted ended up living in her childhood home. The many times that she is hurt by the people in the past, I loved her many reactions. Eventually the story gets to the love part and I completely loved it. The relationship didn't start easy and had some speed bumps, but I loved how Colin treated her and didn't completely forgive her of her past at the beginning.

Can you ever go home again; especially in the South when you were 'it' in High School. Loved this book, great story continued to entertain to the end.
