The only thing Bri Duval loves more than baking petit fours is romance. So much so, she's created her own version of the famous Parisian lovelock wall at her bakery in Story, Kansas. She never expects it to go viral--or for Trek Magazine to send travel writer Gerard Fortier to feature the bakery. He's definitely handsome, but Bri has been holding out for a love story like the one her parents had, and that certainly will not include the love-scorned-and-therefore-love-scorning Gerard.

Just when it seems Bri's bakery is poised for unprecedented success, a series of events threaten not just her business but the pedestal she's kept her parents on all these years. Maybe Gerard is right about romance. Or maybe Bri's recipe just needs to be tweaked.

Novelist Betsy St. Amant invites you to experience this sweet story of how love doesn't always look the way we expect--and maybe that's a good thing. 


Such a sweet and fun read!
I loved this new author and I hope to see more from her in the future!
I really liked how the story was set in a small town. In this way I can connect with the characters because I grew up in a small town myself.
I personally think the name of the town Story is so adorable! The town has made me feel at home.
The supporting characters Mabel and Agnes made this story that much more charming. I immediately fell in love with them.
The theme of faith makes the story that much more special.
Sometimes it takes a long journey for us to finally see that the Lord's love will never fail us and nor will He ever leave us. For without Him, we are nothing. At least I feel that way. He's the best friend anyone can have!
I enjoyed this book so much that it had me grinning and sometimes laughing out loud.
I could practically smell the delicious treats coming from the bakery as I'm a big fan of sweets.
Bri had me drooling.
I really found myself cheering Gerard and Bri on for their own happily after.
While I haven't tried macarons this story has made me want to try some although personally while I read I like to chow down on chocolate or a bag of dry cereal. I recommend this book very much! It will make you laugh out right, cheer our main characters on and leave your heart feeling full all at the same time!
I was NOT required to write a positive review for this book. All opinions are my own.
