Publisher's Summary

The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever. As the rich, spoiled princess of Parrish, Mississippi, Sugar Beth Carey had broken hearts, ruined friendships, and destroyed reputations. But 15 years have passed, and now she's come home, broke, desperate, and too proud to show it. The people of Parrish don't believe in forgive and forget. When the Seawillows, Sugar Beth's former girlfriends, get the chance to turn the tables on her, they don't hesitate. And Winnie Davis, Sugar Beth's most bitter enemy, intends to humiliate her in the worst possible way.
Then there's Colin Byrne...Fifteen years earlier, Sugar Beth had tried to ruin his career. Now he's rich, powerful, and the owner of her old home. Even worse, this modern-day dark prince is planning exactly the sort of revenge best designed to bring a beautiful princess to her knees.
But none of them have reckoned on the unexpected strength of a woman who's learned survival the hard way. Ain't She Sweet? is a story of courage and redemption...of friendship and laughter...of love and the possibility of happily-ever-after.

Another winner from Susan Elizabeth Phillips

The only thing wrong with Susan Elizabeth Phillips' books is that they end. I normally don't even care for romance titles - but SEP writes stories that are so entertaining and so uplifting, there aren't enough of them. Ain't She Sweet is no exception - the characters, their relationships - it's all there. This isn't any "in-depth" fiction - it's just good old fashion entertainment that leaves you feeling great! Of course, Kate Flemming (A/K/A Anna Fields) makes it all come together. I wish she could read every audio book!

Sweet (& saucy) story, Slightly sour narration

The characters in this romanace are a little odd -- most of the men seem like buffoons, most of the women are catty, and the lead heroine is self-centered (albeit softened on the edges by some big-hearted actions -- after all it would be a difficult story if she wasn't somewhat sypathetic!).

You might wonder what could possibly make this a good romance with a character list like that, but after a strange start, it actually worked as a story for me. The romance was sweet and funny (and sometimes steamy) -- it had interesting story and characters that kept me enjoying the story from start to finish. The story paced nicely. I have to admit I preferred the secondary characters romance, as seemed much more compelling, but overall, a nice romantic book.

However, the narration could cause some listeners problems. The narrator had great pacing, but if you are sensitive to how you expect accents to sound, she had some problems. I am not Southern, so I cannot comment on the deep South accents, but I did live in England, and the lead hero's accent was downright laughable. It took me a couple chapters to just "go with it" and not get distracted by the hero's voice -- and you have to hear a lot of him, so if you have strong feelings about the way characters are read, and in particular if you have some idea of what to expect from a British accent, you might want to be a little careful on this title. Unfortunately in the whole 10 minute sample audio there is no example of the hero's voice.

If you are not too concerned about the accents, then this is a good romance. If you are distracted by such things, you might want to pass on this one and try another title.

Shame about the English accent

I love SEP's books and even though this is not one of her best I was very much looking forward to enjoying the audio version on my long commute.

For the most past it was very good, but the narrator's English accent was excruciating at times. It is a shame as I have very much enjoyed listening to Kate Flemming in all other aspects of the audiobook. It was as if the only way she could make the hero sound British was to portray him as a caricature of an aging theatrical 'luvee'. Rather than sounding suave and sophisticated, he often sounded quite camp. I can't vouch for the authenticity of her Mississippi accent.

Apart from the dire dialect it was a very enjoyable listen.
