About the Book:

From the RITA Award–winning author of Five Days in Skye comes a sweet, romantic treat that will leave you hungry for more.

Baker and pastry chef Melody Johansson has always believed in finding the positive in every situation, but seven years after she moved to Denver, she can’t deny that she’s stuck in a rut. One relationship after another has ended in disaster, and her classical French training is being wasted on her night job in a mediocre chain bakery. Then the charming and handsome private pilot Justin Keller lands on the doorstep of her workplace in a snowstorm, and Melody feels like it’s a sign that her luck is finally turning around.

Justin is intrigued by the lively bohemian baker, but the last thing he’s looking for is a relationship. His own romantic failures have proven that the demands of his job are incompatible with meaningful connections, and he’s already pledged his life savings to a new business venture across the country―an island air charter in Florida with his sister and brother-in-law.

Against their better judgment, Melody and Justin find themselves drawn together by their unconventional career choices and shared love of adventure. But when an unexpected windfall provides Melody with the chance to open her dream bakery-café in Denver with her best friend, chef Rachel Bishop, she’s faced with an impossible choice: stay and put down roots with the people and place she’s come to call home . . . or give it all up for the man she loves.

My Review:

Oh, where to begin!  I've been a fan of Carla Laureano's since I discovered her fantasy trilogy.  I adored "Five Days In Skye" and the rest of that series.

But when I read "The Saturday Night Supper Club" I was in love, i love, in love!  So when I heard that "Brunch at Bittersweet Care" was coming out, I couldn't wait.  

I'm very happy to report that BatBC was So worth the wait!  Swoony, delicious, realistic, and rich with luscious food!  Melody is so easy to relate to, and I'll be shocked if you don't fall in love with Justin.  And the story is so captivating you'll be done before you know it, wanting more, more, MORE!

As much as I read, I can honestly say "Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe" is one of the absolute best novels I've ever had the pleasure to read.  BatBC is earning a coveted place on my keep forever shelf.  I highly recommend you pick up a copy of BOTH novels--The Saturday Night Supper Club AND Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe!

You'll be so glad you did!

Until the next read,
