The Icing On The Cake
"This breezy, fun-filled romance is sure to please."--Library Journal
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.
Cafe Lily's Review:
Second book in the Weddings By Design series, The Icing On The Cake connects readers with some familiar characters who have appeared in Janice's other books. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and hated to see it end. It kept me interested and entertained, with fun characters and several twists and turns.
I also enjoyed how real and vulnerable Scarlet was in this book. She faces concerns that most women in real life have dealt with at one time or another.......weight loss/gain, self control (or lack of), self esteem, wondering if Mr. Right is out there and more. Scarlet's emotional ups and downs were very tangible and easy to relate to.
This story offers humor, wit and a sweet romance that feels very natural and easy. I highly recommend this one! And don't forget to check out the recipe for Italian Wedding Cake, included at the back of the book!
