Baking Love by Lauren Boyd - Review and Giveaway!

Baking Love by Lauren Boyd

Kate Sullivan and Eric Wagner were best friends in high school.  Three years ago, Kate’s feelings for Eric changed.  What started off as friendship had turned to love, but she never had a chance to confess this to him.  While at college, Eric started dating someone else.  One day, he messaged Kate to tell her about it and that was the last she had heard from him.

Fast forward to the present when Cecelia Prescott walks through the door of Sullivan Bakery (the bakery that Kate owns).  Cecelia is there to order a wedding and groom’s cake, but is surprisingly rude to Kate during their appointment.  Come to find out, Cecelia is ordering the cakes for hers and Eric’s nuptials.  Knowing that Eric and Kate had a past, even though just friendly, Cecelia already determined that she doesn't like Kate.  But Eric insisted on getting their cakes at Sullivan’s despite Cecilia’s strong disapproval. 

Seeing Eric again brought back all of the old feelings that Kate had for him.  She wants to tell him that she loves him, but doesn’t see the point now that he’s getting married.  Can Kate sit back and watch the man she loves marry another woman?  Will Kate tell Eric that she loves him or will she risk the chance of losing him forever?  Join Kate as she bakes up delicious cakes and see if her future will be just as sweet.

Baking Love is Lauren Boyd’s debut novel.  The book was well written, had a good story line and entertaining characters.  I also liked how baking played a huge part in the story.  There’s just something about a book, based around cake making, that makes it that much more enjoyable.  Overall, I thought this book was a yummy read and would recommend it to others.   I definitely look forward to reading more books by Lauren in the future.
