Review: The Sweetness of Forgetting

Available now: The Sweetness of Forgetting by Kristin Harmel

***3.5/5 stars

In this classic tale of present meets past, a struggling bakery owner learns that her family’s World War II legacy stretches far beyond her imagining. (Bonus: there’s recipes!)

Recommended readers:

  • If you like a bit of chic lit in your historical fiction,
  • If you could use a classic heart warmer,
  • And if you like to bake, this one is for you.

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 3.5/5 characters
  • 3.5/5 plot
  • 3.5/5 overall


The Sweetness of Forgetting is weaved by a gifted storyteller, making something that could be simple chic lit a nice plot and character- driven page turner. I won’t spoil the story’s unfolding with a summary of the engaging premise that drives the story at the outset, and though it does run a bit trite in the end,  it is overall a nice, heartwarming read.
