Book Description: Thirty-six-year-old Emma Rae Travis has been baking specialty cakes and melt-in-your-mouth pastries at The Backstreet Bakery in historic Roswell, just outside of Atlanta, for the last six years. But here s the rub about her job as a baker ... Emma is diabetic. When she tastes her creations, it can only be in the most minute portions. Emma is considered an artisan for the stunning crème brulee wedding cake that won her the Passionate Palette Award last year, but she s never even had one full slice of it.
When Jackson Drake hears about this local baker who has won a prestigious award for her wedding cake artistry, he tells his assistant to be sure and include her in the pastry tastings scheduled at his new wedding destination hotel the following week. And for Jackson, that particular day has started out badly with two workmen trapped in a broken elevator and a delivery of several dozen 300-thread-count bed linens in the wrong size abandoned in the lobby. But when the arrogant baker he met a week prior in Roswell stumbles into the dining room with a platter of pastries and a bucketful of orders, he knows for certain: It s going to be a really rotten day.
Can these two ill-suited players master the high-wire act and make a go of their new business venture? Or will they take each other crashing downward, without a net? And will the surprise wedding at The Tanglewood be theirs?

My Review: ROFLOL! This book is absolutely hilarious and delectable at the same time. Take a woman with diabetes and give her a love for baking, enter a man who is fulfilling his late wife's dream of owning a wedding destination. Their first meeting doesn't go well, he thinks she is addicted to hazelnut, and she thinks he's crabby. Jackson's sisters want Emma's creations at the hotel so they convince him to make her a job offer, Emma agrees but wonders if the two of them can "co-exist" in the same environment. This is another one of Sandie's romantic comedies that I could not put down! I laughed out loud several times I was afraid I was going to wake up my daughter. This is not one you want to miss. Emma is a charming Southern Belle, and Jackson is still hurting from his wife's death which makes him a "needy" hero that Emma must save. This book has bonus recipes in it which just make your mouth water. I am giving this book a lighthouse and shining a light on it for making me laugh!
