Release Date: 11/21/13
Sugar Rule 1: Christmas is the perfect time for cheesecake.
Sugar Rule 2: Men are as useful as burnt cookies.
After losing her reporting job to layoffs at the local paper, Caeleah Turner’s pity party at the airport is interrupted by a woman claiming to know the location of the world’s best cheesecake. Intrigued, Caeleah trades plane tickets with the woman and finds herself in Chestnut, Colorado, a tiny town hiding a woman known as the Cheesecake Queen. The Cheesecake Queen not only bakes the best cheesecakes in the country, but her cheesecake is known to cure everything from infertility to baldness—one woman even loses 100 pounds on it! There is a thick batter of secrets behind The Cheesecake Queen and her two sisters, who operate all the bakeries in town.
But as the mayor’s efforts to shut down the Sugar sisters before Christmas gear up, Caeleah finds herself wanting to sample his own treats.
There’s a bigger secret than love to Cinnamon’s cheesecakes. And Caeleah is determined to find out what it is.
This book was such a fun ride! 🙂 First off, love books that mention Colorado. I’m obsessed with my new home state. This was such a fun romance read. It’s actually quite tame for a lot of the romances out there, but it’s fun, interesting and filled with cheesecake! 🙂 Overall, I thought the story element of this book was good, structured well, and well written. The romance is on the tame side, so don’t be looking for erotic stories here. This romance is fun, light, and a good read. I’m glad to see an author who puts her story first, plus has a love of baking!
