Sweeties #1 Cherry/Skye

Author: Cathy Cassidy, Veronique Grisseaux, Anna Merli Format: Hardback Release Date: 13/06/2017

Sweet but with a little bite, Cherry Skye is the first book in the Sweeties exploring tasty family dynamics, dealing with boys, and dealing with each other. Cherry Costello's father, Paddy, owns a successful candy store franchise. The father-daughter team must relocate to a new town as Paddy has remarried to the Tanberry clan. Cherry now has four new half-sisters and must start at a new school. Trouble (and romance) arises as Cherry meets Shay, who happens to be the boyfriend of her older (and meaner) half-sister, Honey! Plus, the Tanberry twins Skye and Summer have some growing pains as they learn life is not identical for the both of them. It's going to take a sweet miracle- or some Costello best-selling chocolates- to overcome the sour tensions in this household!
