“Another wonderful Sweetwater story. 4th of July was very relevant to days culture. Ciara always weaves a story that does not disappoint. She brings her characters to life and makes you fall in love with them. There is always a twist that I never see coming, and 4th of July did not let me down. I love this town and wished I lived there! Well done Ciara!”~5 Stars Amazon Review
