Publisher's Summary

Max Jennings is in a bad mood. It's not anything you did; it's just that secrets from her past make it her natural state of being. But she's not going to talk about it or share her feelings, so don't bother asking.
Max's bad mood means that very few people actually truly understand her or know that her secret dream is to be a pastry chef. When a rare opportunity to work for world-famous Avis Phillips presents itself, Max jumps at the chance. Avis and her staff aren't stingy with the tough love, so Max spends every spare minute practicing her craft. As she bakes brownies and custards, cookies and galettes, she builds an unlikely friendship with a man she once loathed and finds herself falling into something she's spent the last six years avoiding. Will she let her painful past stand in the way, or will she muster the strength to forgive herself and realize her full potential?

Great for a Second in a Series Book

This is the second in The Girl's Series by Rachel Hollis. I picked it up immediately after reading the first book, Party Girl. Sweet Girl has all the same characters as Party Girl, but the point of view is Max's, Landon's roommate.

Max is rough, gruff, and aloof. But underneath she is a softy. The reader knows something happened to her along her life's journey, but we don't know exactly what. Max is independent and does not rely upon her family's wealth to get by, preferring to make it on her own. She lands a job working in the bakery of her dreams located in the hotel where she excels at tending bar, creating unusual drink concoctions customers have never tasted before.

After several months at the bakery, she learns the job was only short-term. She was a fill in until Joey, long time employee, returns after maternity leave. This not only shatters her dream of being a pastry chef, but also her income. What to do now? She hasn't told Landon or any of her other friends, or family, what she's been doing and finds herself in the difficult position of asking, or not asking, for help. Her relationships with her family are strained, and she pushes away everyone else, so feels a bit stranded. And she continually beats herself up for being who she is.

Although her friends want to come to the rescue, they're unsure where to begin since they don't know what's wrong to begin with.

The author, Rachel Hollis, reads this book herself. But because she has little, if any variation between the voice of Landon and Max, or any other characters for that matter, the beginning is confusing. Who is speaking? Who's point of view of are we in? We've completely associated Rachel's voice with Landon from book one. But here, in book two, it's the same voice, now, for Max. Although the adjustment can be made in a few chapters, the author could use some professional coaching on how to vary voice tones so the readers know who is speaking. In an audio format, this type of differentiation is essential. Still, it's not enough to prevent anyone from buying the book.
