Like Dark Chocolate, Bittersweet and Satisfying

Bittersweet Surrender is the latest book by Diann Hunt.  Carly Westlake has had a rough time recently. She learned she had breast cancer, and her husband left her. She’s recovered from a mastectomy, but her emotions are still in a whirl. Her best friend and business partner Ivy passed away, as did her father. Now she’s left to run the Mocha Day Spa alone, with limited assistance from Ivy’s husband Scott.

If life weren’t complicated enough, Carly’s step-mother Magnolia has just moved in with her, and her high school crush Jake is moving back to town. Will Jake reject Carly as her husband did? Will she be able to run the spa by herself? Will Magnolia ever leave her alone?

This book is only available as an e-book.  If you don’t have an e-reader, I recommend downloading it to your computer.  Amazon and Barnes & Noble both offer free e-reader software for computers in Kindle or Nook format, respectively.

This book is bittersweet, as the title indicates. Diann Hunt crosses a light romance with the serious issues of breast cancer. As a cancer survivor herself, Hunt handles the issues of recovery with humor and grace, adding a depth to Carly that most romances omit. The result is like dark chocolate; a bit bittersweet, but a very satisfying read.

About Lilibet King

I'm a mid-level manager for a national company, one that doesn't permit me to mention its name in a blog - I'm not that high up in the company. I'm an introvert who has trouble finding material on leadership for those who are introverted and/or shy, so I'm writing my own based on almost 20 years experience in management and supervision.
