Jesse Keyes has always been the sister
to get in to trouble. Itís not always her fault, but no one
sees it that way. When Jesse finds out that sheís pregnant,
her sister Nicole assumes the worst, her boyfriend does to.
Matt shoves her out of his life cruelly and her sister hates
her, so Jesse decides to make a fresh start somewhere else.
Itís a struggle, but she manages. Five years later, Jesse
and her four-year old son Gabriel, come back to Seattle
because Gabe wants to meet his daddy. Matt wants nothing to
do with Jesse, until he sees a way to make her pay for
breaking his heart. He wasnít expecting to feel something
other than hatred for her though. All Jesse wants is to
reconcile with her sister and start over with Matt. What she
ends up with, is a lot of heartache.
I read the Bakery Sisters novels one after the other.
By the time I got to Sweet Trouble I was dying
to read Jesseís story! I have to admit, Jesse was not my
favorite person at that point, but after reading Sweet
Trouble I wanted to throw my arms around her. Susan
Mallery had her work cut out for her. I was hard pressed to
accept Jesseís point of view. She did it though. Sweet
Trouble is a heartfelt and emotional story. Matt and
Jesseís feelings are vividly depicted and tangible. You can
feel their inner turmoil. Their story is angst-filled,
romantic, sensual, and intense. Claire is the innocent and
shy sister. Nicole is the strong, capable one, and Jesse is
the troublemaker. The tension and drama built more with
every book until Sweet Troubleís dramatic
conclusion. Sweet Trouble is wonderful, as is each
book in the Bakery Sisterís series. I highly
recommend reading them in order. It makes them that much
