Stand Alone Novel
By: Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Narrated by: Kate Flemming
Length: 11H and 30M
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 15 years have passed, and 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. Ain't She Sweet? is a story of courage and redemption...of friendship and laughter...of love and the possibility of happily-ever-after.

When I saw this book had a different narrator I was a little apprehensive, I just couldn't imagine anyone being able to fill Anna Fields shoes, I didn't realize that it was still Anna, just under a different name and as usual she did a terrific job with this book ( the English accent could have been a little better) , the southern accents sounded it ok to me, I just wonder what my southern friends would say.
As always SEP doesn't disappoint, this was a light,entertaining audio book to the end and I very much enjoyed it.

The only thing wrong with Susan Elizabeth Phillips' books is that they end. I normally don't even care for romance titles - but SEP writes stories that are so entertaining and so uplifting, there aren't enough of them. Ain't She Sweet is no exception - the characters, their relationships - it's all there. This isn't any "in-depth" fiction - it's just good old fashion entertainment that leaves you feeling great! Of course, Kate Flemming (A/K/A Anna Fields) makes it all come together. I wish she could read every audio book!

the best of humor and romance, only problem was that English accent the reader did for the main character - she made him sound like a fat drunk 60 year old duke... didn't she listen to herself first? Still - you can get over that - excellent book!

Listen to this NOW!!!! You won't be sorry. I promise you that. I have found my favorite Author and I can't wait to listen to all her other books. I only wish that I had started listening to them in the correct order. But that's okay. I am just glad to have found her. I am very picky about the books I listen too. I like them to be funny and interesting and I know that if I don't want to get out of the car then it is a GREAT book!! Read it!! I did not want to get out of the car on this one!
