This is the first book from Katie Fforde that I have read. It was a quick one day read with a lot of characters to keep up with. Given the plot of the story, all the characters were necessary. Parts were believable. But other parts were quite unbelievable.
The whole cooking contest and the personalities of those characters were interesting. Cher got on my nerves as she should. Zoe had no backbone when dealing with her. The other characters were well-developed. That whole part of the book was good.
The romance, however, was quite unbelievable. Gideon was quite unforgettable. Their relationship was also. And no one who is “in love” swaps cell numbers? Come on! Also, the whole friendship with the innkeepers is strange. Would you ask someone who you met two weeks prior to being your child’s godmother based on her cleaning the kitchen and making some great cupcakes?
I received a free copy of the book from NetGalley in exchanged for my honest review. Thank you.
