Daphne - I have read some Jenny Colgan in the past and loved her (Talking to Addison and others). I think I may have to pick this up.

Jamie - Not going to lie..if I saw this randomly I probably would have never picked it up — mostly the cover haha. BUT I’m digging this whole laid off storyline since well I can relate. MAYBE THIS IS MY LIFE CALLING…to open a bakery? Probably NOT because I can’t bake but this sounds fun and something maybe I can relate to..just in not letting it all get me down and forging my own path in the midst of a setback!

Also, sidenote, I love when books include “extras” like recipes and such!

Alexa Y. - This book sounds all sorts of adorable! I’d definitely want to check it out, if only because it sounds like the perfect cute + light read 🙂

Jen @ Pop! Goes The Reader - This novel sounds like such a fun, cute contemporary read that would be the perfect choice for a summer afternoon 🙂 I’ve always loved stories that involve food in some way, particularly baked goods (Go figure!) so I love the concept of this novel. Who doesn’t love cupcakes? I can’t wait to read this one, although it might prove disastrous to my waist line. This was an absolutely lovely review, as always, Estelle 🙂

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - Is the book you were talking about at dinner with the character in love with John Cusack?

Anyway, this seems like a good summer read. Lately, all I’ve been able to really handle is lighter contemp romances, both teen and adult.

Thanks for the review.

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - This does sound really cute! I love it when there are recipes included although I have to admit I’ve never actually tried any of the recipes I’ve come across (I just like to read them).

Rachel @ hello, chelly. - This book sounds so cute! And I love that she included recipes too. It’s been a while since I’ve baked.. so maybe this book will inspire me to start up again 🙂

Alexa Y. - I had no idea that this was set in London! That immediately makes me want to add it to my TBR list (which is happening… RIGHT… NOW!)

I really adore the fact that this book really involves Ted’s family, and not just Ted herself. The relationship between sisters is always fun to read about, and I think I’d enjoy reading about Ted and Ava 🙂

elena - I <3 models and think their appeal is that they're odd looking (Gemma Ward in her heyday looked like an alien) because it's more striking in editorials or runways. so Ted sounds like a good choice if she's tall and looks interesting! go Ted. it sounds like a v touching journey & you can definitely feel for Ted. also yay for London.
