Piece de Resistance by Sandra Byrd(AND GIVEAWAY)

***Leave a comment before Sunday November 15 at midnight to be entered to win a copy.***



Book description:

Having earned her chef's hat, Lexi Stuart bids au revoir to her glamorous and deliciously satisfying pastry mentorship outside of Paris and returns to her hometown of Seattle, Washington. There, she finds life unexpectedly complicated.


She's put in charge of a high end catering bakery Bijoux, which should be her dream job, but there's a catch: She has to make this lavish bakery into a successful business in just a few short months, which will require more than her ability to make an amazing wedding cake. In over her head and at a loss for creative marketing ideas, Lexi isn't sure what the recipe for success needs to be.


Stir in a complicated relationship with her French beau, Philippe, and his daughter, Celine, then add a dash of romance with down-to-earth, lawyer Dan, and life suddenly contains more ooh la la than Lexi can handle.


With the fate of her career and her love life hanging by a thread, the phrase "piece of cake" has never been more daunting. Lexi learns that she must trust the dreams in her heart and the God who put them there.


My Review:

This is the third and last book in the French Twist series by Sandra Byrd. I love this series. I am so sad to see it end. I recommend reading them in order plus they are so good you will want to read all of them. The main character Lexi has grown so much since the start of the first book. There is a spiritual aspect to the series but it is never preachy to me. It just flows along with the rest of the story. They are well written with fabulous food descriptions. I love to bake and every time I read one it makes me want to bake and eat. Highly recommended. :)

Too true! This was a dangerous series for me to read because I always landed in the kitchen.
