Review by Suze
Natalie owns a cupcake truck. She has seen Eric before and liked him immediately, but they never had the chance to talk. Until she accidentally bumps into him. Shortly afterwards they meet again. This time because Eric has inherited a bakery and Natalie the garage right next to it. Natalie's dream is to have her own bakery, but she has to sell a lot more cupcakes before that can ever happen. Eric knows nothing about baking as he's a financial consultant, but he wants to reopen the place and he loves the idea of being his own boss. He needs Natalie's help and she could use his kitchen space to bake her cupcakes. Eric also wants the garage to expand the business though. They might be a good match, but is there too much that's standing in their way?
Truly, Madly, Sweetly is a cute and fun story. Natalie is a sweet girl who's been hurt in the past. She's careful, but she allows herself to have dreams again and to fall in love. Only she and Eric are sharing a business space, so it isn't the smartest thing to do. They have great chemistry, but they don't know each other that well and they both want something that the other has, so there are trust issues between them. That's a good topic for a story. Natalie and Eric both love sweet food and I loved Kira Archer's descriptions, especially the chocolaty ones.
If you're looking for a light and enjoyable read Truly, Madly, Sweetly would be an excellent choice. The story is sweet and the main characters are easy to like. Kira Archer knows how to tell a romantic story. She describes her characters well and there's always something going on. The story is fast-paced, it's vivid and it has a lovely ending.
