I can't begin to explain how excited I am about this book, y'all.
But I'm going to try.
When Heather Greer first wrote this book, I was privileged to be one of the first readers. And I loved it so much I actually got back up out of bed and went to read a few more chapters--something I never do. Now that she's edited a few times, I can vouch for it being just as good, if not better. And I know. Because I've already read it again and loved it just as much.
So, what's the big deal?
Well, for one, the majority of the book takes place on the set of a cake baking/decorating competition. And the cast is diverse and entertaining, to say the least. If you love baking shows as much as I do, you're definitely going to need to add this to your TBR pile.
Second, the main character, Livvy, is almost all my favorite things. She has a teal streak in her hair, rides a vintage motorcycle, wears retro aprons, and loves Glenn Miller. How could I not love this character? She's the best!
Third, you can't have cake without romance, right? Well, at least not in this case. So, settle in, because the sparks between Livvy and someone else in the competition are just as sweet as the cakes they make.
Can you tell I love this book? I love it so much! Which part intrigues you most? I hope you'll check it out, too.
Ten bakers. Nine days. Only one winner.
Competing on the Cake That baking show is a dream come true for Livvy Miler, but debt on her cupcake truck and an expensive repair make her question if it's one she should chase. Her best friend, Tabitha, encourages Livvy to trust God to care for The Sugar Cube, win or lose.
Family is everything to Evan Jones. His parents always gave up their dreams so their children could achieve theirs. Winning Cake That will let him give back some of what they've sacrificed by allowing him to give them the trip they've always talked about but could never afford.
As the contestants live and bake together, more than the competition heats up. Livvy and Evan have a spark from the start, but they're in it to win. Neither needs the distraction of romance. Unwanted attention from Will, another competitor, complicates matters. Stir in strange occurrences to the daily baking assignments, and everyone wonders if a saboteur is in the mix.
With the distractions inside and outside the Cake That kitchen, will Livvy or Evan rise above the rest and claim the prize? Or does God have more in store for them than they first imagined?
