Cute book and a quick, enjoyable read. There are recipes at the back for the cakes baked in the novel. What a fun little extra!

This was a fun, fast read. The author does a good job of making the characters real, and I felt like I was right there with them at times. This, to me, is a great book to escape to on a lonely Friday night after a terrible week at work. I recommend it.

Another wonderful book by Jeanne Ray. Like her other novels, this is the story of a strong woman who deals with her family while doing something she loves. In this case it's baking cakes! The characters in Ray's books are so real; You can identify with them immediately. A quick, enjoyable read.

God, I loved this book. The author had me from the first chapter when she described the heroine being at a group therapy session where they were all told to imagine themselves in their favorite relaxing place, and the heroine imagines herself in the middle of a bundt cake! Once she wrote that scene, I could forgive her when the plot veers slightly in ridiculousness.

This was such a wonderful book.I so enjoyed the journey she took in her life and how she was able to make it all work not just for herself but for her family too. A really great book showing that you can pull yourself through just about anything and keep your sense of humor and your dignity. A excellent book.

I enjoyed this book. It was a fun, quick read. I liked the characters and the way they developed. Not a really deep story, but still worth the read. I'll look for other books by this author.

I adore this audiobook, and it is hard to let it go but I saw that someone who graciously sent me a book is requesting it. This book is the one that launched me into my own business and I am grateful!
