A Sweet Mess
“Aubrey Choi is making her own way in the world as a baker. Her bakery is ready to expand, even if her pocketbook isn’t quite as ready. Enter Landon Kim. He is passing through Aubrey’s small town when his car breaks down. Unable to get it fixed until morning, Landon explores the town and comes across a craft beer bar. He meets Aubrey and it’s lust at first sight. They spend an unforgettable night together. But a hot one night stand isn’t all they’re getting into. Due to a surprise twist, they’re linked in ways they never would have imagined.
Aubrey and Landon are a cute couple, although the book has a little too much “”will they, won’t they”” tension. The reasons for them to stay apart feel a little flimsy until the last quarter of the book when some deeper character backstory is quickly explained. The characters are likeable and fun, though.
The food and travel aspects of the story are highly enjoyable. The plot is a little thin, but overall, it’s a fun, escapist, love story. The author also provides a recipe in the back, although it’s for steak. Since Aubrey is creating new dessert recipes throughout the book, the steak recipe seemed like an odd choice. This book would be a good choice for a beach read.”
