In the first book of the Sweet Seasons series, Candace finds herself in a romantic comedy with a screwball edge when she starts her summer job at a crazy amusement park. Surviving all the surprises The Zone has in store won't be easy but it may be worth it if it means getting to know her attractive and mysterious coworker.
When her father forces sixteen-year-old Candace to apply for a summer job, a position as a cotton candy operator at The Zone is all she can find. With a nametag that says "Candy" and no time to hang out with her best friend, Tamara, Candace can feel the next three months slipping away. The only positive is that her cart is often positioned near Kurt, one of the mascots in the History Zone of the park. But while their flirtation is giving Candace a reason to head to work, her fellow cotton candy girl just happens to be Kurt's ex. And she's the kind to hold grudges.
As the summer progresses, the job gets easier, Candace finds a new friend in Josh, and she and Kurt become closer but Candace's other relationships both at the park and with Tamara just keep getting worse. And once Kurt's ex is assigned to her team-building scavenger hunt group, Candace's life becomes as sticky as the pink fluff she serves all day.
