Book #9 for #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks
I absolutely love this cover and the design of the paperback edition of this book. It has beautiful French flaps with decorative edges; the end pages are covered in pictures of cakes and the pages have deckled edges.
Ok, enough about my obsession with the design of this book. The story is about a baker, Claire, that moves from NY to Millcreek Valley an opens up her own bakery in the middle of this wedding planning town. She specializes in being able to “see” what flavor each customer is bringing to the table with them. In other words, she can your feelings and back story and out them into a flavor profile. She utilizes her talent to create delicious and perfectly crafted cakes for each person. The employers of her bakery have their own back story and they are examined briefly throughout the story.
This was a much anticipated read for me and I was not disappointed. I liked the writing style and the storyline and I am thrilled that there will be a sequel out in June of this year.
I gave this book 5 crowns.
