by Sarah Strohmeyer

      Reading a book written by Sarah Strohmeyer is always a delightful treat and Sweet Love is no exception. With its warm, well thought out and well defined characters, Sweet Love is an entertaining and thought-provoking novel. Sarah Strohmeyer's fans will not be disappointed in this latest book of hers.

Seventy-five year old Betty Mueller feels, with her frequent dizzy spells, that she is nearing the end of her life. Her biggest regret in life is her interference in the love life of her then seventeen-year old daughter, Julie. At the time, some twenty years ago, she felt she was doing the right thing by keeping Julie and Michael Slayton apart, but she now believes that to have been a huge mistake. Before her time here on earth comes to an end Betty has determined to make her wrong into a right. Betty's plan is to reunite Julie with Michael through a dessert technique class.

Julie is now divorced, raising a teenage daughter of her own - Em. She's working as a TV reporter and working hard to be promoted; one might even classify her as a workaholic. Michael is also divorced and works as a consultant. With all the years that have passed and the bad blood between them, will Betty be successful at reuniting Julie and Michael before her time runs out?
