Sweet Dreams by Stacey Keith


In a little town in the heart of Texas, the same old story can turn into happily ever after...

On any given day, Maggie Roby has cake batter on her sleeve, flour where the blush supposedly goes, and sore feet from standing since dawn. For her sister’s wedding day, she’s added a side of heartache. Maggie’s failed marriage taught her that love is a lie and commitment a mistake, and it was an expensive lesson. But with her bakery thriving and her life simplified to work, family, and knitting for her pug, Maggie thinks she's bought some peace. Until Jake Sutton walks in and she realizes she isn't safe from desire at all...

Jake has model-perfect looks and about a billion dollars to throw around, but Maggie also sees the same never-say-die grit she prizes in herself. The attraction between them is hotter than her oven in July. But when Jake decides to restore the old Art Deco movie theater right around the corner from her bakery, she worries that temptation is a little too close for comfort. And the added ingredient of a man from her past only complicates the mix. This time nothing less than true love will do. If she can learn to listen to her heart, she just may be able to have her cake and eat it too...

3.5 stars rounded up to 4 stars

Maggie's done with love, in all shapes and sizes. If people, including her family, think she's bitter and unforgiving, let them, because she is. She's trying to be happy for her sister on her wedding day, but all she really wants to do is go home and take a nap.

When the best man, Jake, begins flirting with her, she does her best to shoot him down, but Jake is a persistent man. As he begins to spend more and more time in her little town, Maggie realizes there's more to him than meets the eye.

I enjoyed this book, how the characters’ slow and easy interactions eventually led to more. How misconceptions and perceptions can easily lead to misunderstandings and heartbreak. Hindsight is 20/20 is an old saying for a reason.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the second book in the series. I would recommend that you read them in order. This follows on directly from Dream On. There Cassidy Roby was the local girl who recaptured her girlhood love. Here, her sister Maggie is the centre of the story.

Maggie most definitely does not want any romance in her life. She was terribly, badly treated by her husband, but now divorced and living above her bakery, she has found a new balance in her life. Unfortunately, at her sister Cassidy's wedding she meets Jake Sutton, multibillionaire and man with whom she has intense chemistry. In complete denial, she works very hard to avoid him, but he is having none of it! I loved the push-me pull-you conversations and interactions between these two fated lovers. For the reader, it is just a matter of when and how... and Ms. Keith does an excellent job of throwing in a lot of barriers.

This is a fun, sweet, and sexy read, which does a great job of levelling out the playing field for these two contrary people to accept the inevitable!



Award winning author Stacey Keith doesn’t own a television, but reads compulsively—and would, in fact, go stark raving bonkers without books, most of which are crammed into every corner of the house. She lives with her jazz musician boyfriend in Civita Castellana, a medieval village in Italy that sits atop a cliff, and she spends her days writing in a nearby abandoned 13th century church. But the two things she is most proud of are her ability to cook pasta alla matriciana without burning down the kitchen and swearing volubly in Italian with all the appropriate hand gestures.

  1. Ruthie and Mary Jo, thank you so much for taking the time to read and review the book! I know it's a cliche for any writer to say that their books are like children, but ... well, the truth is, they are. All the characters in the Dreams Come True series are as real to me as flesh and blood, so I am doubly grateful they are real to you! Thanks again for your terrific insights.
