    3. Its very rare a book captivates me from the beginning, and this did just that.From the moment a stranger named Adam arrives dripping wet at Katie's Bakery 'Sweet Occasions' i was hooked, i just wanted to keep going and going to see how this would pan out.I loved how Linn sectioned the story out by telling it from different people's angles, and how the story was spread over two and a half years.

    11. Perhaps it will come as a shock, but "Sweet Ocassions" is the first book by Linn B. Halton that I've read. Yes, it still can happen! But you know how much I love to discover new authors - new to me.

    14. ​​​​​4.5 Stars!A Little Sugar, A Lot of Love by Linn B. Halton is a well-conceived story with an interesting plot and characters. The book was originally published in the summer of 2014, and Choc Lit edited and revised it for 2016. Due to the positive feedback surrounding the book's first release, I decided to read it. With the exception of a little lull a chapter or two before the ending, this book kept me entertained and engrossed from beginning to end. The story opens with a bang, w [...]

Follow my reviews. :Jane Hunt Writer First StepsJane Hunt Writer Book Reviews FacebookJane Hunt Writer Book Reviews Google+Connect on:TwitterOne of the best things about reading fiction for me is the chance to experience another world, walk in someone else’s shoes for a while. Sometimes this is romantic experience, sometimes it is angst ridden, with this author’s stories by the time you reach the end you always have that ‘feel good’ feeling that sets you up for the day ahead.Katie and Ad [...]

    19. I knew going in that A Little Sugar, A Lot of Love by Linn B Halton would be a fun but thoughtful read, I have yet to read one book published by Choco Lit that wasn’t. This was no different. It is an enchanting look at the average person’s life. There is no save the world, maybe a “save your sanity” since simply making do in life can wear a person down. There is no “instant love or lust” for that matter but a slow simmering of attraction that is stirred by a friendship made in passin [...]

    22. This was a sweet romance, in more senses than one! Katie runs a cake shop and meets Adam when he calls in for a cake for his Grandma. The book then follows their lives as they occasionally meet and then part once more.It is very cleverly written - the chapters are written from Katie, Adam, Grace and even Steve's point of view - so we get very in-depth views of their thoughts and emotions.I love Grace (Grandma) - she was a brilliant character and her love of her family was wonderful.It was a litt [...]

    24. I was given this book for an honest review. I loved it. It had everything I ask for in a book, great storyline, interesting characters and baking. I really felt for Katie the main character to start with but then things look up for her and I had my fingers crossed that something good would happen to her. I thought this book was fabulous, but do not read on an empty stomach as you will get very hungry with all the talk about cakes.

    25. I received a copy of this book from Netgallay in exchange for my honest review. I simply adored this book! The main premise of the story is to follow your heart even if it takes you to places unknown. This was such a sweet story about two wonderful characters who see eachother only a few times a year but who have become smitten with eachother from their first encounter. A wonderful love story with lots of layers. I highly recommend!

Such a lovely well written story which entwined the lives of several different people at the one time, the main characters been Katie & Adam I don't want to give away to much of the story but it's well worth reading, you won't even disappointed X

    27. Such a sweet book! I loved it. Katie and Adam are two people who finds out who they are. After failed relationships they find each other. This boom is nothing but about fate. How when something is destined to happen it will happen. Would I recommend this book? yes. Would I reread it again? Yes!

    28. What can I say Its a lovely, cosy, romantic, feel good book I couldn't put down. A very worthy read for all romantics out there
