Book Blurb: 
When Becca Muchmore drops out of grad school, all she has left to fall back on is her baking. Ignoring her mother's usual barrage of disapproval and disappointment, she decides to start a small business hand-delivering her wares. A friend introduces her to an office of hungry lawyers, who agree to give her a try. Her lizard-booted neighbor Sal is happy to help out when he can, and almost before she knows it, Becca's Best is up and running.

Before she can settle into a routine, things get complicated. The office ogress could easily be Becca's sister and has absolutely no patience with cookies or other frivolities. Even worse, her boyfriend is the man of Becca's dreams--kind, funny, successful, and brain-meltingly gorgeous. As the dark undercurrents threaten to pull her down, Becca swiftly finds herself neck-deep in office politics, clandestine romance, and flour. Saving her business (and finding true love) is going to take everything she's got, and more.

Review: This is chicklit, pure and simple. That's not a put down, that's a good thing. Becca's story could very well be described as Bridget Jones meets the Cupcake Cafe. Becca is more neurotic over things that Bridget Jones ever was, but she's lovable.

There are several reasons to read this book.

1. It is a super cute romance. It makes you feel good.

2. It's a foodie romance too, which is awesome.

3. One word, recipes! You can't go wrong with a cute story and good recipes.

4. The descriptions of the baked goods that start each new chapter. Its impossible not to want sweets while reading this book.

5. The hero isn't quite who you think he is. (I'll say no more, as it might be a spoiler)

I think those are enough reasons. If not, you need to take some happy pills and then give the book a try. Life needs some light fluffy fun things to make the days go by faster, and this is one of those things.

I rate this book Y for Yummy!

Rating: 5 flowers
