This review is for the book "Fetching Sweetness" by Dana Mentink. In this novel, we meet Stephanie Pink who is on a very simple mission - meet up with author Agnes Wharton, get her new manuscript, and earn a promotion.
Not happening. When Stephanie does meet Agnes, it is not under idea circumstances. Agnes's dog, Sweetness, makes a break for it right when Stephanie is coming to get the manuscript from Agnes. Agnes is a bit eccentric, so she tells Stephanie she can't have the manuscript until Stephanie captures Sweetness and brings her home to Agnes. What follows is a silly, topsy turvy tale of Stephanie (not a dog lover, by the way) and the man she runs into along the way, Rhett Hastings. The novel is the adventure of Stephanie, Rhett, and Sweetness on their way back to the home of Agnes, and the self-realizing journey that Stephanie and Rhett both take along the way.
I enjoyed this book. It is fun and a light-hearted read. I liked the characters and it was different from other books I have read.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
