Always the Baker, Never the Bride by Sandra D. BrickerThere is on word for this book FUN! A baker that can’t eat the wonderful creations she makes? I feel her pain–I can bake bread, but I can’t eat it–no gluten for me. Just like Emma I must restrain myself from things that would delight the tongue.Emma just happens to be in the right place when Jackson needs a baker–only he might miss his chance at hiring her if he doesn’t listen to his sisters.
And the recipes! oh my! such yummy things to try. I may have to give a few of them a whirl with gluten free flour.
Get this one. It’s yummy.
From the back of the book:
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 crÃ¨me 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?
