Sweet Thing by Renee Carlino

 Genre: Contemporary Romance


Mia Kelly is a twenty-five-year-old walking Gap ad who thinks she has life figured out when her father’s sudden death uproots her from slow-paced Ann Arbor to New York City’s bustling East Village. There she discovers her father’s spirit for life and the legacy he left behind with the help of an old café, a few eccentric friends, and one charming musician.

Will Ryan is good-looking, poetic, spontaneous, and on the brink of fame when he meets Mia, his new landlord, muse, and personal heartbreaker.

A story of self-discovery and friendship, Sweet Thing shines light on the power of loving and letting go.

My Review: 5 stars
Where to begin with this one? Well first absolutely a must read! Very emotional and inspiring. There are a lot of great characters in this book but the two main characters are Mia and Will. Mia is a young lady with a plan! You know the type with a 3, 5, and 10 year plan maybe even a life plan. LOL yea news for her life happens and plans change lady. Her world comes crashing down when her father dies and he leaves her with a coffee shop, an apartment full of his stuff  in New York City's East Village, and basically a life lesson. Will is sexy, funny, sweet, charming, and a musician who knows what he wants and has a plan too. Once they meet the journey begins and you get sucked in to the book and watch it play out in your mind like a movie. You laugh, you cry, you think. Yep it is a book that makes you think about life and how things happen for a reason. It is easy to relate to and I think one of the most realistic love stories I have read in a long time. It made me think about what kind of person I am and want to be. It is filled with love, friendship, and music. It was a great story and I didn't want to put it down. 


Renee’s first friends were the imaginary kind and even though her characters haven’t gone away, thankfully the delusions have. She admits she’s a wildly hopeless romantic and she blames 80’s movies staring Molly Ringwald for that. She lives in Southern California with her husband, two sons, and their sweet dog June. When she’s not at the beach with her boys or working on the next book, she likes to spend her time reading, going to concerts, and eating dark chocolate.
