Of all the Susan Elizabeth Phillips books I owe, Ain’t She Sweet is my least favorite. I don’t think the lack of Chicago Stars has anything to do with my feelings. My top three favorite SEP books are not in the Chicago Stars series (Kiss an Angel, First Lady, What I Did for Love). Granted, I’ve read the book only twice: once when I bought it and a second time when a friend said she enjoyed reading it.
When I lend my SEP library to co-workers, I do not say which ones are my favorites and which ones I don’t like. Everyone’s taste is different. But every person to whom I’ve lent Ain’t She Sweet didn’t like it.
I think part of my issue is I didn’t laugh when I read it. Maybe small town high school angst bites too close to home.
This concludes my opinions of SEP novels. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading them.
