5 out of 5 stars
This was not my first Georgia Beers book and there’s a reason for that. They just make me smile. I love the way the stories jump off the pages and feel like they’re just Beers telling you about friends of hers instead of writing fiction.
Flavor of the Month tells the story of Charlie coming home to lick her wounds and running into her first love. She didn’t have any plans at home other than to get herself back in working order and then go back to big city living. She didn’t expect to work part-time for a bakery making pies (like she used to do before moving away) and she definitely didn’t expect her best friend and ex-girlfriend to be running the restaurant across the street.
The story itself is adorable. There were numerous times that I would put my hand to my mouth or have to wipe a small tear from my eye. It was just that cute. Beers’ storytelling is top notch and definitely keeps you interesting. You want to know exactly where the story is going to end up. You’re pretty sure you know that everything is going to be okay, but you want to know how it will get there.
Overall, a great story with a great performance by one of the best narrators in the LesFic genre (I only say that because that’s the only place I’ve heard her). Lori Prince knocks this one out of the park and every time I see her name attached to a Romance title I jump on it.
Charlie Stetko had a life to envy. A penthouse in Manhattan, a beautiful girlfriend, and a circle of perfect friends. Or so she thought. When her girlfriend sends her packing, Charlie ends up unemployed. Without a place to live or money of her own, she’s forced to do the one thing she vowed she never would: Go back to Shaker Falls, Vermont. Back to her parents, back to the bakery where she worked as a teen, back to the small town life – and the people – she left behind.
Emma Grier thought Charlie was the love of her life until that uppity Manhattan entrepreneur swept Charlie off her feet and made her a trophy wife. Charlie left everything Shaker Falls behind, including Emma’s shattered heart. But Emma picked herself back up and now owns a popular restaurant in Shaker Falls. As for her love life? She doesn’t need one. Something else she doesn’t need? Charlie waltzing into her restaurant to sell her the bakery’s pie.
What happens when Charlie and Emma realize their differing paths have led them right back to each other?
