What People Are Saying About The Sweetness of Life

Teaser - Ilsa

It’s been a little over two months since the release of The Sweetness of Life, and I’m loving all of the messages that are still coming in and can’t say thank you enough. If you’ve read the story, then you know I tried to make it a little different, less serious than my other stories, lighter on the topics, and more fun. Hopefully I’ve achieved that and you’re loving all the recipes. Here are some review quotes… I love them all,

“The Sweetness of Life is utterly delicious in every sense of the word, and is a love story that will no doubt leave you thirsty for more. As with all Kathryn Andrews novels, once you pick this one up, you’ll be hard pressed to put it down until it’s been completely devoured. Not only is the writing beautiful, but the recipes that have been wound thoughtfully through the book are equally as fabulous. This is so much more than your average romance novel, and I dare you not to fall for it.” Author Elle Brooks

“Where do I begin with this story…? I literally loved every page. From start to finish I was enthralled into Shelby and Zach’s story. Kathryn Andrews has delivered an excellent story, written both beautifully, and captivating. She has this magical way with words that has your heart so full of love, and admiration, it almost feels like it could burst at any moment.” Reader, Allison Parkins

“I have been so excited for a new book from Kathryn Andrews and boy was the wait worth it! The Sweetness of Life was a brilliant enemies to lovers story with all the southern flair. The turbulent push and pull between Shelby and Zach made me turn page after page. I loved the characters, the exquisite descriptions of scenery, and all the food and wine. This story broke the stereotypical love stories we’ve all read and up until the very end, I wasn’t sure how their story would play out. Adding in a bit of angst, this book delivered the feels. I strongly recommend The Sweetness of Life to anyone wanting to disappear into a great book!” Author Brooke Parker

“This is my first book of Kathryn Andrews and definitely not my last. This book is not your average love story and it would leave any romance craving critic wanting more.
This book was beautifully written with mouthwatering recipes leaving the reader to devour them. The characters were perfection; Shelby’s determination and strength versus Zach’s arrogant and troublesome personality is what makes these two polar opposites; the perfect recipe for sweetness. Kathryn did a remarkable job with this story. The pull from the beginning kept me invested until the end. The emotional pull and constant tug of war is what loves all about and in this book it was brilliantly crafted.
The recipes that were given and the description of places that Shelby describes, gives your taste buds are workout and your imagination wanting to be beamed up into this beautiful story. I absolutely loved how the author left the recipes in here for everyone to try out; a very clever idea. This book is a contemporary romance book and would definitely recommend it to anyone.” A Book Lovers Emporium Book Blog

I love food. I love everything about it.

My dream has always been to land a job with the Food Network channel, and I’ve spent years as a food critic, blogger, and chef, tasting my way across the South to develop recipes that are a twist on the classics and uniquely my own. When a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity comes calling, I’m shocked to discover I’ve been paired with him, the worst blind date ever—bless his heart, and I’m determined not to let anyone get in my way. So, I buckle my designer heels, tighten my apron, and vow to myself there’s nothing in his playbook that’s going to stop me from tasting success.

I love wine. It is my life.

What I hate are critics. I hate everything about their dream-killing souls and elitist attitudes. So, when she shows up in the tasting room of my winery in northern Georgia, the devil in disguise wearing a pair of long legs and beautiful hazel eyes, I know just the plan to make and how to use her to get what I want. What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her, because in the end, I will win. I always do.

Two weeks. His wine. Her recipes. A feature article in a special issue of a world-renowned magazine.

Pairing wine with food is one thing, but two hearts is another.

TSOL Review by Reading By the Book Blog

Gah… As an author, it doesn’t get much better than kind words… Thank you, Mayas Sanders, for your review.

“Shelby and Zach story of twenty emotional dimensions of perfection. I was invested and dragged the story on so I wouldn’t be at the end. I loved the emotional struggle, misunderstanding, growth, and support from beginning to end. This was a romance, Kathryn started it truly from beginning to end. Ups and downs, back and forth, confusion and happiness. The journey, the adventure, and the trust…. PERFECTION.

If you have ever read a previously written novel by Kathryn Andrews, you would totally understand that NOTHING is left unsaid or to your imagination. The story is from start to finish, each word, sentence, paragraph, and chapter has a purpose. The purpose of ensuring you fall in love just like the main characters. In this story, you couldn’t not like Shelby and Zach, either together or apart. They were just it. Two pieces to one whole of Sweetness…. Lavender that is….”

“The End.”

img_2243

Most authors will tell you their favorite two words are, “The end.” But personally, I find “Chapter 1” equally exciting. Both having a different meaning, but both amazing all the same.

Today, I typed “The end” on my fifth novel, and my heart is so overcome with emotions I feel numb. Numb because this feels surreal, and numb because after all this time I don’t know if I’m ready to part with it.

This book was hard and I don’t know why. The content isn’t dark or sad, but I poured myself into it in a way I didn’t with the others, and I found myself loving the characters and the setting so much more. My only hope is that one day you’ll read the love between the lines and understand, too.

Elle, Megan, and Staci have all sent me huge congratulations, and my husband and boys brought up champagne to toast (yes, we let them have champagne, and both scrunched up their faces and handed back their glass lol). With each one of these my eyes filled, because being proud of myself is one thing…but receiving it from them is another. They say it takes a village to raise kids, well it also takes a village to write a book. Thank you to everyone who’s helped me over the last year. The love and support has meant more than I could ever say.

No, I’m not ready to give the details of it yet. And no, I don’t know when it’s going to publish, but as soon as I do you’ll be the first to know. In the meantime, know my next book is finished and one day hopefully soon it’s coming…

Cheers!
