Life isn’t always sweet, even for girls called Candy.

Candice Parker’s life has never been easy. Plagued by losses and setbacks, each day is a struggle for the petite brunette and her young son. When fireman Gary enters her world, he is one mistake she refuses to make; but after tragedy strikes, she may not have a choice.

Gerald Ford has never been what anyone would call settled. Always keeping things simple, he lived a fast and furious lifestyle, with no intentions of slowing down. However, when he inherits his family’s ancestral mansion on his thirtieth birthday, he considers the possibility that it’s time for a change.

Could this complicated young woman be his Christmas Candy?

Amazon/Goodreads Rating: 3/5
In Patti's Imagination Rating: 7/10
This is a stand alone book by author Samantha Jacobey   It was narrated by Vanessa Hensley-Mayes. While the story had a great  theme of love conquerors all,  I thought the story was too short for everything the author tried to have occur.

Candy has not had an easy life, losing her dad when she was very young.  Not soon after to move in with her mother and handicapped child.  Her son is her life.   She has no desire to want to date, even when fireman Gerald enters her life.  Recently transferred from another fire station, Gerald sees something in Candy and doesn’t give up even when she tells him no over and over again.

There were so many times that Candy was on my nerves and I wish that I could of giving her a slap across the back of the head to tell her to wake up.  She just needed to open her eyes and even with their age difference Candy and Gerald seemed made for each other.  Now there were times that was very clear and with the issues from her dad passing she was reluctant to get involved with anyone working in public services.  So Gerald had two strikes against him. Then add in her son and the issues she had to deal with his handicap made these two getting together seem impossible.   When tragedy struck, Candy leaned on Gerald who shows just how great and persistent he is.

This is a sweet story, but listening to the story made me confused specifically in the beginning of the story.  I was further confused by the narrations because there wasn’t much change in tone between the different characters and it confused me who was speaking.

samantha.jpgAnyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.

I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.

I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.
