She hid secret messages in frosting, thinking no one would notice.

When Sandy Miller emerges from her shack on the edge of town after eighteen years in isolation, she finds a job decorating cakes for a little shop on Town Square.

Andrew McCallister is the first to admit that he never got over Sandy when she dropped out of high school and disappeared. But now she’s back.

He just has to get the guts to talk to her.

When the town summons the pair to plan the school’s centennial bash, Andrew and Sandy discover they are the only two members of the committee. As they attempt to rekindle the long-lost flame, Sandy realizes her messages must have been seen by the town.

Welcome to Applebottom a small town that's simple and cozy, rumors run like wildfire and the townspeople are nosey as hell but romance..... now that's there specialty! This was a feel good, sweet, funny read that had me smiling and laughing with the antics from the matchmaking elders of this quaint town. Sandy, once the town outcast and now the local cake decorator who's been secretly in love with Andrew the local history teacher since she was fifteen. What happens when the meddling woman discover hidden messages in Sandy's icing decorations? Pick up this read, get all the feels, see if Sandy and Andrew find that once in a lifetime love!

4 Star Review The Sweetest Match by Abby Tyler Abby Tyler is a new author to me and I have absolutely no idea why that is. I really enjoyed this The Sweetest Match. From Start to finish Ms.Tyler had me hooked as she wove her tale about Applebottom, Missouri (oh how I love the name). The Sweetest Match ticked quite a few boxes for me. This is a small town contemporary romance about Sandy Miller and Andrew McCallister. Andrew McCallister never really got over Sandy when she dropped out of high school and disappeared, but now she’s back and all Andrew needs to do is find it the courage from within to talk to her. For Andrew, Sandy is the one who got away because he was to slow to admit his feelings. For Sandy, she has had feelings for Andrew since she was a teenager but due to circumstances, could not act on them. It appears that the people of Applebottom loved to get involved in one anothers’ business and when Sandy and Andrew are asked to work on the school’s anniversary celebrations together, they realize that they might have a chance to re-kindle the old feelings, if they dare. This was a quick, sweet romantic read about taking a chance, a leap of faith and opening yourself up to the possibilities.

Readers that visit the small town of Applebottom, Missouri find reading this second chance romance to be delightfully charming and sinfully sweet. Sandy and Andrew are strong, compelling characters that easily charm readers into their story. The small town setting and the matching making townsfolk add to the ambiance of this romance as Sandy and Andrew try to rekindle their long lost flame and reach for their second chance at that happily ever after. Emotional turmoil regarding the past adds depth and suspense to the story while Sandy’s secret messages adds a bit of flair and spices things up. The story is a bit on the short side but the plot is fast paced, flows smoothly and provides readers with a delightful and enjoyable read.
