The Sweet Spot by Amy Poeppel is Perfect For Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day to all you readers out there. I have a great book for you. I picked up this little gem and almost swallowed it whole. It’s really hard to write humorously. And it’s really challenging to keep readers engaged and laughing in every chapter. And still keep a great story evolving into a real page-turning romantic comedy. Welcome to THE SWEET SPOT.

Greenwich Village, NYC. Most of this charming novel takes place in an outdated brownstone and inside the neighborhood bar that lives in its basement that is called THE SWEET SPOT.

A vast cast of unique and quirky characters that you will not soon forget. Lauren and her husband and children live in the upstairs of the brownstone. Lauren is a potter who is just coming into her own and about to become famous with her newest job. They have recently adopted a dog. They are a mess. Olivia is a young woman who thinks she’s on the track to success in an upscale boutique. But what she actually is is caught in the middle of a big mess. And then there is Melinda. She’s just lost her husband of thirty years to a much younger woman and believe me she is LIVID and not thinking straight. She craves revenge. And she’s out to get it in a messy way.

Greenwich Village comes sparklingly to life in the hands of Amy Poeppel who manages to make tragedy seem like one big romp of foolishness as she takes the reader through love and loss, hatred and revenge, and even forgiveness.

THE SWEET SPOT is the sort of novel I’ve been looking for. It’s wise and funny, smart and well-written, and it kept me laughing throughout the entire book. This is just the thing to get you in the mood for Valentine’s Day!

I read my review copy digitally in exchange for an honest review. Honestly, I loved it! NetGalley provided the digital content from the publisher: Atria.
