One of USA Today’s Summer Must-Read Romances One of Entertainment Weekly’s 27 Best New Books to Take on Your Summer Vacation One of Library Journal’s Best Fiction Books of the Year (So Far) One of PureWow’s 11 Books We Can’t Wait to Read “The Sweetest Revenge is my favorite kind of story—one with an irresistible premise that delivers in a way I never imagined possible. It is at once funny, poignant, and deliciously satisfying. I had to force myself to slow down and savor the end. I absolutely loved it.” —Annabel Monaghan, author of Nora Goes Off Script and Same Time Next Summer “Super fun and deliciously cathartic.” –Smart Bitches, Trashy Books “[A] gleefully over-the-top plot, but anyone who’s ever been screwed over at work will empathize with Amy’s plight. In the end, justice is served most deliciously. This is pure popcorn.” —Publishers Weekly “Equal parts hilarious, heartbreaking, and swoon-worthy, Dent's addictive novel isn't here to make sweeping philosophical statements about the morality of vengeance. In fact, it actually delights in how delicious getting petty retribution can feel in the moment (so relatable).”—Entertainment Weekly “Dent writes quirky yet relatable characters, and her protagonist in this latest novel is outstanding… Readers will love the fast-paced wit of both Amy and the supporting characters while she discovers who she is, where she wants to be, and what is truly in her heart.” –Library Journal (starred) “Chockful of fun banter and delicious tension, The Sweetest Revenge is a humorous and satisfying story of a woman triumphing over her messy past and getting the romance she deserves along the way, set in the cutthroat world of television production.
