If I lived on a Caribbean Island I suspect that my sweet tooth would be more than happily catered for by fresh fruits, either eaten au naturel, in a fruit salad, or grilled in a rum and chilli glaze ... mmm rum and chilli glaze. I therefore suspected I wouldn't find much to get excited about in a book of Caribbean style sweet recipes, but I was wrong. I don't live on a Caribbean Island, I live in England, and here it rains a lot, and in the winter it's cold and the nights are long. There's recipes for barbequed fruit for both of the English summer weekends that encourage such behaviour, but there's plenty more for the rest of the year, with cakes, bakes and puddings galore, where the stodge-o-meter is turned all the way up to 11, but the zing of lime or ginger give it an exotic flavour.
There's a Jamaican take on dishes like Eton Mess, Tiramisu and Cranachan, which is kind of fun, though not something even I can pass off as authentic. Sweet is well photographed and funkily laid out. I am an old fart when it comes to the recipes themselves, I prefer an easy to read black font on a white background, but these are still very readable, and each step is sensibly described. I'll dip into it when I need warming up.
