Happy Monday y’all!
The Monday after a long long weekend is rough! But I have this delightful book to share with you, so that is a positive! Big thanks to Kim for my invitation to this tour!🧁
Sue Roberts has written a sweet savory story filled with fun, friendship, and food! This book was bursting with everything I love in a summer read: a beautiful setting, amazing characters, lovely friendships, and delectable treats. Oh and I cannot forget about the cherry on top… a second chance romance. If the romance is the cherry on top then the humor is the nuts, so many laugh out loud moments! So let’s recap: gorgeous setting✔️ delightful characters✔️ strong friendships✔️ sweet romance✔️ tremendous laughs✔️ glorious food✔️
LivIs a baker and a single mom to 20-year-old Jake. Jake has recently come home from University not only is he moaning about his coursework, but he is beginning to vocalize that he really would like to get to know his father. This is complicated and requires Liv revisiting her past, France and a summer fling. When Liv’s aunt reaches out to ask her to come stay with her in France and help with her bakery, it offers the perfect opportunity for Liv to hunt down baby daddy Andre. But how will Andre react not only to seeing Liv after 20 years, but to finding out he is a father? Sounds pretty serious, but that certainly is not the tone of the story. It is a lighthearted, uplifting, fun story. Liv is a fabulous character and I loved her relationship with her friends. The setting was divine and Sue Roberts’ descriptive writing swept me away to France while reading. A quintessential Summer read that will make you smile and crave cake!

About the Book
From Southport to the South of France – this is going to be a summer to remember!
Life just got a whole lot more complicated for thirty-eight-year-old single mum Liv. Her son Jake is practically perfect in every way, but he’s started asking some difficult questions, and the answers lie in a holiday romance twenty years ago. Back when Liv was staying with her aunt on the French Riviera…
Returning to the Cote d’Azur, with its white sandy beaches, her supportive aunt, and exquisite wine and cheese is harder than it sounds though. Because – if she’s going to give Jake the answers he needs – Liv knows she has to hunt down her first love Andre. And since she’s a professional baker rather than a professional investigator, she doesn’t even have a clue where to start.
At first, finding the one that got away proves even trickier than she thought. And if she succeeds, how will he take the bombshell secret Liv has been keeping? Liv has to do the best thing for her family, but does that mean closing the door on this very French affair?
A joyful, laugh-out-loud story about second chances, secrets and sunshine! The perfect summer read for fans of Carole Matthews, Jenny Colgan and Sophie Kinsella.
