  • Paperback: 320 pages

  • Publisher: Revell (August 15, 2013)

  • Scarlet isn't sure if she has just the right ingredients for true love--or utter disaster
    Scarlet Lindsey is busy making her dreams come true. She's moved her bakery to a prime spot on Galveston's most popular street, she's planning an extravagant cake for her best friend's wedding, and she has a great relationship with Bella Neeley, the island's most popular wedding coordinator. Business is booming and Scarlet is enjoying the ride.

    But when Bella's dangerously handsome brother Armando breezes into her life, Scarlet is faced with a sticky situation. Should she stay with the safe, sweet guy who's been a fixture in her life for years? Or will this brash Italian hunk melt her guarded heart?

    Fan favorite Janice Thompson is back with more wit, more weddings, and more of what you love best--bridal-business drama laced with laughs.

    My Review:

    I loved this book. This was a great Christian chick lit book. I read it in one afternoon. Scarlet is an slightly overweight baker who is getting known for her awesome cake designs. She moves into a new store owned by her Aunt in Galveston, Texas. She loves Lucille Ball and when she does not know what to do next she asks herself what would Lucille do. This is book in the Weddings by Design series so I remember Bella and her family. The book is mainly Scarlet's story but Bella's family is in too so it really pulls everything together to read them in order. Armando made me slightly fall in love with him too. I loved how Scarlett and Armando's relationship develops over the book. The sparks fly in a good way. I identified with Scarlett and her body issues. I have them too and most women. She is beautiful and does not even realize it. The author did a good job developing the characters and plot. There is a good amount of humor in the book along with some serious moments. Highly Recommended. :)

    Janice Thompson is a seasoned romance author and screenwriter. An expert at pulling the humor from the situations we get ourselves into, Thompson offers an inside look at the wedding business, drawing on her own experiences as a wedding planner. She is the author of the Weddings by Bella series and the Backstage Pass series, as well as Picture Perfect. She lives in Texas.
