Welcome to the page of info and extras for One Sweet Love, the second book in the City Love series. Scroll down to see photos and read about places that served as inspiration for the book, find out which Book Babe member you are, and download a few recipes of food from the book.
One Sweet Love is set in Asheville. Julie works at Little Shop of Sugar, a chocolate store modeled after my favorite, The Chocolate Fetish. Jayson works in the Jackson Building, a small skyscraper built on the land where Thomas Wolfe’s father had his headstone making business. Julie’s favorite restaurant is Blue Goose, an ode to White Duck Taco Shop. Hill of Beans isn’t real, but Mosaic Cafe inspired their smoothies. The Arboretum is real, though they don’t have an indoor wedding venue like in the book. There is an actual castle in Asheville (two, if you include Biltmore). And there is tasty sushi to be had in Asheville.
The Book Babes have grown to seven members: Julie, Anna, Deb, Abbie, Lori, Susan, and Rachel. Want to know where you’d fit in to the group? Take the quiz and find out!
