Release Date: 7 August, 2019
When Tessa Markham’s bookstore gets bought out, she is forced to face an uncertain future. After her best friend challenges her to start baking, she accepts—even if the last time she baked wasn’t what she would call a delicious success.
After a small kitchen fire, Tessa’s life begins to change. She finds encouragement from a sexy fireman, agrees to a questionable ruse to help another business owner with a complicated situation, and needs to be there for her best friend now more than ever.
Can a delicious disaster lead to a new future and a successful baking career?
My review: After a long time, Tessa finally decided to give up the bookstore that had been in her family for years. “Like with life, they say when one door closes, another one opens. For Tessa, she wasn’t only closing a chapter, but she was also closing a book, and she didn’t have the slightest idea of what to read next.” (9)
Now battling boredom, Tessa desperately wanted to get her career back on track. The question was: What should she do? How could she start her life over when her whole life was books? With her love of cooking, how about becoming a baker?
So that’s how she goes from book lady to cake lady.
Story has a leisurely pace—slow and steady. Writing was pretty good. Although I liked Tessa’s excitement for a new venture, I was also saddened when she left her book world behind. Instead the reader follows her journey as a baker, which can be kind of fun but also tedious at times. I’m not much of a baker, so I don’t find the process to be particularly interesting. I was really more into the “disaster” portion of the story, which really wasn’t as comical as I had hoped. But I think readers would enjoy the enthusiastic camaraderie as well as relate to her follow-through on a whole new chapter of life—or, in this case, a whole new slice of life.
My rating: 3 stars
