I can always rely on Susan Mallery to deliver a heartwarming romance. Sweet Trouble is the third and last book in the Keyes Sisters Trilogy and I have honestly been waiting for Jesse’s story since the first book. Jesse was a bit of party girl in that book and was involved in an incident that changed her family’s life forever. Sweet Trouble picks up 5 years later when Jesse returns to Seattle to confront old ghosts; one of which is coming to terms with the father of her child, Matt.
Matt’s character was at times frustrating and touching. Since Jesse left five years ago he became a changed man with a vow to never love again. But a child has a way of changing things and he begins to love again, but can he overcome his anger and desire for revenge against Jesse to admit to the love that once broke his heart?
The concurrent story with Jesse and Nicole is also about forgiveness and both of them need to face their inner fears to become a family again. Overall, a wonderful romance that has touching insight into family dynamics and forgiveness.
