Review ~ Sweet Life by Mia King

A high power couple living in New York seem to really have the life. They have the life most of us dream, they don't have to cook or clean, they have a nice place in a well of area, designer labels, nice parties. They have a beautiful daughter that takes ballet lessons and attends a private school.

When her husband gets a new job, Marissa Price, 40, leaves the island of Manhattan for the island of Hawaii. Paradise seems like the perfect place to find herself, save her marriage, and reconnect with her daughter. Marissa soon discovers that her new life is less about beaches and beautiful sunsets and more about cows and lava flows. Their new “home” is a fixer-upper at best, and her brilliant daughter suddenly wants to be homeschooled. But what needs fixing the most–her marriage–is the first thing to crumble when her husband announces he wants time apart to find himself. Pulled in opposite directions, Marissa is faced with the most important decision of her life–a choice that will define who she is, what she wants, and where her happiness lies.

If this book sounds good, then you have to pick up Sweet Life by Mia King. This book explores many of life issues including marriage, parenthood and friendships. Mia King has such a great way of explaining her characters, you really feel like they are your friend as well.

This book was a super quick read for me, only took a few days of reading. I have a longing to visit Hawaii now that I did not have before. I really enjoyed reading the background on some beliefs and customs of Hawaii. If that isn't enough, the book is filled with great recipes!
