"You have to teach your heart and mind how to sing togetherthen you'll hear the sound of your soul."

Mia Kelly thinks she has it all figured out. She's an Ivy League graduate, a classically trained pianist, and the beloved daughter of a sensible mother and offbeat father. Yet Mia has been stalling since graduation, torn between putting her business degree to use and exploring music, her true love.

When her father unexpectedly dies, she decides to pick up the threads of his life while she figures out her own. Uprooting herself from Ann Arbor to New York City, Mia takes over her father's café, a treasured neighborhood institution that plays host to undiscovered musicians and artists. She's denied herself the thrilling and unpredictable life of a musician, but a chance encounter with Will, a sweet, gorgeous, and charming guitarist, offers her a glimpse of what could be. When Will becomes her friend and then her roommate, she does everything in her power to suppress her passions-for him, for music-but her father's legacy slowly opens her heart to the possibility of something more.

Sweet Thing is definitely a good debut novel! I wanted to read it the moment I laid my eyes on it (although the one I’m reading is the old cover and that the new cover is much more beautiful!). I’m a sucker for stories which involved coffee and coffee house.

After her dad died, Mia moved to New York City from Ann Arbor to take over her father’s café. She first met Will Ryan, a sweet musician on her flight to New York. Soon, Will becomes her roommates. Mia tried to suppress her feeling for Will even though there were definitely sparks between them. Mia didn’t want to date a musician after what happens to her parents. She wanted to be with someone with a steady career.

There are times when I was so frustrated with Mia. It was obvious that she’s in love with Will, but she tried very hard to deny it because she didn’t want to end up like her parents. And Will... I love Will (like everyone else). He’s sweet, and he’s not afraid to be who he wanted to be. He’s the type of guy who lives his life freely the way he wanted. While Mia, she wants stability in her future rather than taking risk loving Will.

Sweet Thing is not only a sweet, romantic story—a love story between Mia and Will. It is also a story of Mia’s journey to self-discovery.  I really enjoy this one. It is well-written and definitely a great read.
