Review- Savor It by Tarah DeWitt

A Delightful Blend of Flavor and Love

Narrated by Karissa Vacker and Zachary Webber, Tara DeWitt’s “Savor It” is a beautiful, hilarious, and quirky small-town romance that balances spicy moments with deeply moving ones. This story of love and loss, burnouts, and the journey to self-discovery and recovery is a true treat for the senses. It’s a feast for the eyes and food for the soul, and I will be savoring this book for a long time to come.

The narration was perfect. Zachary Webber can deliver a joke like no other romance narrator. Karissa Vacker had a strength to her voice that matched Sage’s character to a T. I was so enthralled with this narration I could not put it down!

If you appreciate puns, both silly and witty, you’ll love this book as much as I did because it is full of them! “Savor It” is my first book by Tara DeWitt, and it has quickly become the best contemporary romance I’ve read in a while. DeWitt’s charming writing, much like her description of hugs—”It’s agony. It’s bliss”—radiates warmth and enfolds you in its delightful and heartfelt moments. The story kept me thoroughly engaged, and by the end, I fell in love with the town of Spunes!

The story’s structure and pacing are well-crafted. The humor in the book had me grinning from ear to ear, especially the circumstances in which Sage and Fisher meet. The endless jokes and puns—whether it’s the town name Spunes, not to be mistaken for Forks, Washington, or the “sage advice” from Sage Byrd—added to the book’s charm. I also appreciated the film and TV show references, from Gossip Girl and Bridgerton to Twilight and Lord of the Rings. Naming a three-legged cat Legoless and describing Sage crawling around like Gollum? Genius!

“Savor It” is a delightful read that will leave you feeling warm and satisfied, much like a perfect meal. Tara DeWitt has created a captivating story that blends humor, heart, and hope in a way that is sure to resonate with readers. If you’re looking for a contemporary romance that will make you laugh, cry, and fall in love, this book is a must-read.
