Hmm what to say…
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Meet Millie. Heartbreak has forced her to make a new start and when she arrives at the old bakery in the little village of Honeybourne she is determined that this will be her home sweet home. Her imagination has been captured by the tumbledown bakery but with no running water and dust everywhere, her cosy idea of making cakes in a rural idyll quickly crumbles.
Luckily the locals are a friendly bunch and step in to help Millie. One in particular, Dylan, a laid-back lothario, soon captures her attention.
But just as Millie is beginning to settle in, an unexpected visitor from her past suddenly turns up determined to ruin everything for her. It’s time for Millie to face the skeletons in her closet if she’s going to live the dream of running her little village bakery, and her blossoming romance with Dylan.
It’s a decent book. I was entertained and I don’t regret reading it but, I feel I could have read something better instead.
I didn’t understand how the characters interacted with one another or their emotions.
I also think that the author was flirting with the supernatural here. Like, one extra phrase here and the book could have been magical realism or something. This part is actually a bit that confused me because I thought there would be more to it.
I also would have preferred if times and time lapses were announced more. The ending for sure I thought only a few weeks went by but, now I’m think it was… a year? At least 6 months…
Easy and light read, good for summer.
If you like these types of reads then, I would recommend this book to you.
