"The Spring of Candy Apples" by Debbie Viguié

About this book:

  “They’re fun! They’re quirky! They’re Sweet Seasons—unlike any other girls’ books you’ve ever read. You could call them alternative, God-honoring chick lit. Join Candy Thompson on a sweet, lighthearted, and honest romp through the friendships, romances, family, school, faith, and values that make a girl’s lie as full as it can be.
  It’s the end of Candace’s senior year, and life’s getting sticky.
  A promotion to The Zone’s Candy Counter means Candace gets to create gooey treats all day long. She is a finalist for The Zone’s college scholarship (Florida anyone?), things with Kurt are getting really weird, and she’s bothered by all the questions about her future. Not unlike the challenge of making candy apples, Candace struggles to resist getting stuck and believe in what is truly at her core.”

My personal Rating-
Confession: I’m never been to an amusement park expect a Six Flags when I was much younger (and I swear I was *this* close to drowning on that water log ride). So, this series was a fun taste (see what I did there? ;) ) of behind the scenes of a park. I’m really sad this is the last book in the “Sweet Seasons” series, as this one was definitely my favorite and makes me wish there was more! I was actually semi-okay with the dating stuff in “The Spring of Candy Apples” since I’ve shipped that couple since Book #1. The secret from the first book is also revealed in this final book and I totally approve of it. I really would like a sequel series or a novella…anything! ;)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
