Friday Favorites is another almost weekly feature here at Simply Living on a Budget. The whole point of this feature is to share some of my favorite finds. Anything is game. Food. Cleaning supplies. Kid stuff. Garden favorites. Recipes. Anything that I really like and want to randomly post about. Everything in Friday Favorites is something that I use and bought on my own.
Thirty-six-year-old Emma Rae Travis has been baking specialty cakes and melt-in-your-mouth pastries at The Backstreet Bakery in historic Roswell, just outside of Atlanta, for the last six years. But here s the rub about her job as a baker … Emma is diabetic. When she tastes her creations, it can only be in the most minute portions. Emma is considered an artisan for the stunning crame brulee wedding cake that won her the Passionate Palette Award last year, but she s never even had one full slice of it.
When Jackson Drake hears about this local baker who has won a prestigious award for her wedding cake artistry, he tells his assistant to be sure and include her in the pastry tastings scheduled at his new wedding destination hotel the following week. And for Jackson, that particular day has started out badly with two workmen trapped in a broken elevator and a delivery of several dozen 300-thread-count bed linens in the wrong size abandoned in the lobby. But when the arrogant baker he met a week prior in Roswell stumbles into the dining room with a platter of pastries and a bucketful of orders, he knows for certain: It s going to be a really rotten day.
Can these two ill-suited players master the high-wire act and make a go of their new business venture? Or will they take each other crashing downward, without a net? And will the surprise wedding at The Tanglewood be theirs?
My thoughts …
I download this book back in January and read it while out of town (at the time it was free.) Sadly it isn’t free right now but the Kindle version is $9.99 or you can try to find it at your local library. Remember you don’t need a Kindle to enjoy the ebooks! I have the Kindle app on my iPad. So addictive!
When out of town, I like easy reads that distract me from not being home. This book was a nice easy read. The added bonus to this book, it has recipes in it! I haven’t tried any of them but I sat there reading, I wanted to get baking so bad!
Overall, this book is a love story you see coming from very far away. There are a few twists that make it interesting though. If you want a nice easy, romantic read to lift your spirits and leave you dreaming of amazing cake recipes then check this book out!;)
