Prepare to be charmed. How she does it I'll never know, but by the end of the first chapter, Ms. Gary has managed to steal my heart. Don't Call Me Sweetheart is the latest in a long string of heartwarming stunners. Maybe it's the way she modernizes the fantasy of the childhood dream of Cinderella finding her prince. She humanizes the dream with flawed characters and realistic obstacles in a way that is full on humor but never lacks for heart and always keeps the dream alive. The best of what makes us human shines through ever character she creates and that is what keeps me coming back for more.
