Blurb: Pastry chef and bakery owner Jason Wood bakes a mean chocolate soufflé, yet his love life keeps falling flat. He’d blame his past if he wasn’t trying so hard to avoid it.
When his family’s farmhouse burns to the ground, he’s summoned to identify a body found in the ashes. Jason returns to Hancock, Michigan, and reunites with a childhood friend, small town vet Henry McCavanaugh. After fifteen years apart, their rekindled friendship soon develops into much more. But Jason’s baggage threatens their blossoming romance, and he leaves town unannounced to escape his feelings—and Henry’s feelings for him. He has learned the hard way if something seems too good to be true, it’s best to run for the hills. Jason stress-bakes more confections than he knows what to do with before wondering if he’s running in the wrong direction.
Review: This book was beautiful. A novel of self-discovery, this novel goes to show how hard life can be for one that has struggled all their life. When you meet Jason, he is in a state of dark loneliness. One that brings him to a house that he doesn’t expect to have a future in. and as the novel progresses, he finds himself falling for and interested in a special character.
This novel had brought me to tears, got me to laugh, and made me smile. Indra truly knows how to make someone smile and provide a goodness to their heart. The characters were solid and strong, the plot was thick and fantastic. Overall, I would give this book a perfect score.
Indra certainly knows how to show the dark side and realistic view of growing up and moving on. I would highly recommend this novel to everyone that wants to read something new and heart-warming.
