Sugar and Spice by Debbie Macomber

Ages 18+

sugar and spice

Jayne is a 27-year-old virgin children’s librarian who’s looking for a date for her upcoming high school reunion. She is shy and reads all kinds of books including one called How to Get A Man Interested In You.  She’s still single and needs a date for the reunion so she isn’t made fun of just like she was in high school. 

She met a guy at an art gallery recently but isn’t quite sure she’ll recognize him the next time she sees him because she wasn’t wearing her glasses the first time they met. 

Now, being a glasses-wearing children’s librarian myself I can relate quite a bit to Jayne. However, this character makes me mad because she is ashamed of who she is! I love my job and I love the fact that I always have my nose in a book. Should I socialize more? Sure. But curling up with a book is just about my favorite thing to do. 

Sugar and Spice is so cliche it’s crazy and it just bothers me to no end. I love Debbie Macomber’s books but this one just infuriated me. I loved the story, it’s just that this character needs to get her stuff together and read a book on confidence.
