Goodreads: Always the Baker, Never the Bride
Genre: Romance | Christian Fiction
My summary: A lively cast of characters comes together to convert a historic downtown Atlanta hotel into a wedding hot-spot. The brood includes: an angry Italian chef, a goth sous-baker, three Southern Belles, two dueling parents, and an auntie with dementia who keeps escaping in a ball-gown and tiara. In the middle of this is, one super hot GQ widower/hotel owner (Jackson) and a never married diabetic baker (Emma). What a recipe!
My say: Always the Baker, Never the Bride is like a frosted cupcake with sprinkles.
The cake is the story. Soft, light, and fully flavored it has everything you can ask for; a good pace, great characters, and a story line that is more than just boy meets girl.The creamy delicious frosting is the attraction and tension. Emma and the Jackson were a delight to read.The light coating of candy sprinkles is the faith. It added to the story without ever feeling preachy or overpowering.
My verdict: Try this cutie! Did I mention the recipes and weddings tips that follow every chapter?
My star rating: 4 out of 5 stars
My kiddie-o-meter: No sex, violence, drugs, drinking, or social commentary make this one safe for even the youngest readers.
My cover thoughts: Isn't it just pretty? It works with the story and catches your attention.
My final say: Cake or cupcake?
