Love doesn’t always look the way we expect
The only thing Bri Duval loves more than baking petit fours is romance. So much so that she’s created her own version of the famous Parisian love-lock wall at the bakery where she works in Story, Kansas. She never expects a video involving the wall to go viral–or for Trek Magazine to send travel writer Gerard Fortier to feature the bakery. He’s definitely handsome, but Bri has been holding out for an epic love story like the one her parents had–and that certainly will not include the love-scorning Gerard.
Just when it seems the Pastry Puff is poised for unprecedented success, a series of events threaten not just the bakery but the pedestal she’s kept her parents on all these years. Maybe Gerard is right about romance. Or maybe Bri’s recipe just needs to be tweaked.
(Insert me sighing) This is a very good book.
First, just look at that cover. I love it. It’s so pretty and romantic looking.
Second, there is a very good faith element in this book. At first I thought it was going to be weak in that area but it’s there and powerful.
Third, the romance is sizzling. The almost kisses had me wanting to throw the book and read more all at the same time.
Fourth, there were some lol moments. Mabel and Agnes had me cracking up.
This book delivers a powerful message about love. It can be messy and that’s okay. We should base our lives or our identity on what or who we think someone else was or is.
I highly recommend this read.
