Newly divorced, Jenna Stewart unwillingly leaves her two children with their father for his allotted month and heads to her grandparents’ now vacant Texas farm. The last person she expects to see that summer is her adolescent crush, Ethan Ehlers. He shows up at her door, handsome as ever and bearing two pages of astonishing prose — a love letter from Jenna’s grandfather to Ethan’s grandmother. Her wounded heart gradually heals as she uncovers the details of her grandfather’s unrequited love and explores the possibilities for a new love in her own life. But who is trying to scare her away? And why?


The house on Sugarberry Road has many memories for Jenna. Now, after her divorce, she comes back to the house to clean it up for her family. A month away from her kids seems like such a long time. And then, Ethan shows up. The man she swore she wouldn't speak to because of a childhood crush and a betrayal. But that was all those years ago. Seems silly now.

Jenna has trust issues with everyone now, especially men. She wonders if there's anyone left who stays true to their vows. Ethan even shows her a letter between his grandmother and her grandfather, who loved each other all those years ago, but moved on to different paths in life.

With glimpses of the past history between the grandparents, and the blooming story between Jenna and Ethan in the present, Sugarberry Road is a story about second chances, learning to trust, and finding love. It's a beautifully written sensual story that keeps the readers engaged and smiling. What a story! I will surely be checking out other books from Caroline Johnson.

Are you in the mood for an emotionally satisfying read? Pick up Sugarberry Road, and you won't regret it!
