I shamelessly begged for a copy of I WANT CANDY by Susan Donovan because I am a huge Susan Donovan fan and can’t get enough of her books. This one really shows her range with current topics as well as what life was like versus what it can be. Not having come from a small town I cannot relate to the suffocation one might feel, but would not mind having everyone know whether you are okay or not. I also don't want you to miss the first book in this series 'CHERI ON TOP' which has the funniest twist of events in it that to this day make me laugh out loud.

REVIEW from "The Reading Reviewer"
I WANT CANDY by Susan Donovan
Does one have to close the door on the past to open the window on your future?
The last place you want to be when your life is a complete train wreck is back home where nothing but misery surrounds you. For Candace Carmichael that is the only place she has left since everything she ever possessed, and there was allot of possessions involved are gone in the housing crisis. Candy and her friend Cheri did come home and things went well for Cheri and Candy wants that but does not expect it. All Candy has ever known in this town is misery and defeat and right now nothing is looking much different, well nothing but Tucker Halliday.
Tucker is the one thing Candy never expected to walk back into her life and her not want them to walk away. He is all in her face and hotter than a fire cracker in his sherriff’s uniform making Candy reconsider allot of her prior opinions about him. That man turned out really fine and while Candy saw them as friends before, now she sees a whole other Tucker she wants to investigate. Being penniless has her bouncing from one ridiculous housing situation to the next but Tucker is always there ready to give her room and board. Tucker has always made room in his life for Candy and truly believes she is the one person that can free his heart to love again.
With Tucker fighting to keep the meth out of town and control his raging obsession with Candy his hands are literally full. Candy always was a delightful surprise he wanted to keep unwrapping and now that she is back in town he hopes to create a recipe for keeping her there. What Candy does know is when the future is leaving a bad taste in your mouth you need to make your own icing for the cake.
Susan Donovan is incapable of writing anything else that the perfect story of love with a dash of mystery. She has proven again with this book that if your write it, every reader will want to read it over and over again.
