Kim Law is Back with SPRINKLES ON TOP

Sprinkles on Top
A Sugar Springs Novel
Book 3
Montlake Romance

For Holly Marshall, there’s no such thing as a perfect match. That’s reflected in the unpredictable, fun clothing combos the aspiring artist wears around her hometown of Sugar Springs—and in her inability to fit in anywhere else. But when she sets out to prove to her family that she’s ready to grow up by settling down, could she have found her perfect mismatch in a play-by-the-book guy wearing a business suit?

High-powered attorney Zack Winston is a man who always gets what he wants. While Holly wouldn’t mind sampling what Zack so deliciously has to offer, she needs someone who actually plans to stick around—and Zack’s highbrow opinion of small towns suggests he’s not the man for the job. But as the camaraderie of Sugar Springs begins to charm, and Zack’s brothers show what family is all about, Zack and Holly may just get the chance to have it all…if only they’re brave enough to reach out and take it.

KIM LAW is an award-winning author who wrote her first story, "The Gigantic Talking Raisin," in elementary school. Although it was never published, it was enough to whet her appetite for a career in writing. First, however, she would try her hand at a few other passions: baton twirling, softball, and music, to name a few. Voted "Bookworm" and "Most Likely to Succeed" in high school, she went on to earn a college degree in mathematics.


Law spent years working as a computer programmer and raising her son, and she now devotes her time and energy to writing romance novels (none of which feature talking raisins).

ANGI: How often to you get lost in a story?
KIM: Not nearly often enough! I try to listen to books any time I’m in the car or while I’m walking or doing household chores, but that’s been it for a while. Though I am working hard to work reading time back into my schedule! The problem is, when I do get lost in a story, I don’t want to put it down until I’m finished!!

ANGI: What’s your favorite “love” word?
KIM: Love word? Hmmm… Well, it’s certainly not “journey,” I can tell you that. I watch The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Do you have any idea how many times those people say “journey” throughout the season!! I’m sure it’s a drinking game somewhere. If not, it should be. (They’ve even started saying it on Dancing with the Stars!!! *sigh*)

ANGI: What's your favorite thing about the heroine of SPRINKLES ON TOP?
KIM: That’s easy! Holly’s choice of shoes, clothing, and even makeup shows that she wants to stand out and be unique—even if it lands her the title of “quirky.” She wants to be her and not anyone else, and she doesn’t care what anyone might think about that!

ANGI: What's your favorite thing about the hero of SPRINKLES ON TOP?
KIM: That he has such a soft center J

ANGI: Will there be more Sugar Springs novels?
KIM: I’m not sure yet, but there are a few bachelors in the town readers have told me need their own stories. And I agree. So I hope so!

ANGI: What's your favorite thing about summer?
KIM: Memories of childhood. Even though summers as an adult may not be a “freeing” as they were as a child, they often feel as if they are. Long day, lazy moments on the porch swing, watching the kids play ball and run around the neighborhood. There’s something about having our own memories from childhood that I believe reminds us to slow down and appreciate the days a bit more.

ANGI: What is your favorite topping for a cupcake?
KIM: Sadly, I prefer no topping to a cupcake. I just want the cake!

ANGI: Are you looking forward to the return of a particular television show?
KIM: Ohmygodyes! I just binge-watched all three seasons of Scandal and I couldn’t get enough! I’m now desperate for it to come back on. And the bad thing is, the night it returns, I’ll be on a roadtrip!!! I might have to be settled in for the night and shush everyone else just so I can watch.

ANGI’S GOTTA ASK: Without any spoilers, what's your favorite scene from the Sugar Springs novels?

KIM'S GOTTA ANSWER: Oh, this is tough! And I always struggle with favorites! But I do have some scenes I really love in the series. There’s this one scene in Sprinkles on Top that just gets me in the gut every time. Holly and Zack have “escaped” movie night at the park (where the entire population of Sugar Springs currently is, and they were all watching the two of them). They go for a drive together and end up parked in his convertible and looking across the river at the town. It’s dark, there are stars in the sky, and up to this point these two have barely had a civilized conversation. (She only went in the car with him then because she was desperate to get away from the town busybodies.) But as the two of them sit there, it becomes clear that she sees behind his shell, and he sees behind hers. And that there is something much deeper to both of them then what they ever share with others. You see their friendship start to form in this scene, and you understand that it begins with a real bond. A connection. I love it.


UP NEXT for KIM:

COWBOYS FOR CHRISTMAS
3 cowboys…2 weeks…1 wedding!

Claire, Georgia, and Mary Catherine couldn’t be more different, but they promised they would be there for one another no matter what. And when they all gather in Holly Hills, Texas, for Mary Catherine’s Christmas wedding, they’ll find they have one thing in common: hearts that are about to be branded—by unforgettable cowboys.

In “Love Me, Cowboy” by Terri Osburn, wallflower Claire would be more excited about the wedding if it didn’t mean running into Mary Catherine’s brother—the bull rider she once had a scorching one-night stand with…

Ivy League volleyball coach Georgia never wanted to see Holly Hills—or another cowboy—again. But a sexy veterinarian is making her rethink her vow to never marry a Texas man in “Kiss Me, Cowboy” by Liz Talley.

Claire and Georgia both think that Mary Catherine is getting hitched to the wrong man, despite how perfect he is. And in “Marry Me, Cowboy” by Kim Law, a local rancher with a wild reputation gives Mary Catherine a glimpse of what might have been—and what could still be…

Denver was actually my home city so it wasn't a big reach. he and I actually connected over Sponge Bob. I swear I love that cartoon...well did until our daughter who is now 6 watches non-stop. Any who. we actually grew our friendship via long talks and video chats and then we got to go on dates when I was in town. We were together for 2 long years before we got married.

  4. Hey Kim...Mr. Handyman and I were friends almost a year before we began dating. He actually came to a party at my house with a friend, my son threw up, he cleaned it up and we met a month or so later. I probably would have fallen in love with him sooner if I'd heard that story earlier. It wasn't until after we were dating and I introduced him to my son that he realized I was *that* Angi.

  6. Husband and I were friends at first since I already had a bf the time we met. We didn't get together until years later actually. Definitely a slow relationship!

    1. That's sweet. I wonder, though, did you remain co-workers through all those years? I've often wondered how people can work together and then go home together day after day. I need a break from mine! :)
