How to Bake a Man
If Becca Muchmore pushed her cart around my workplace, I'd be gaining some serious poundage. I'm glad I got to indulge my love of baked goods vicariously through this sweet novel. While there have been other novels that incorporated real recipes and sometimes it can feel gimmicky, that wasn't the case here. I think that the use of the recipes added another dimension to bringing Becca and her treats to life. The characters in this book felt very real to me. Through the author's description of them and through the dialogue, I got a good sense of what they looked like, and how they sounded. I was intrigued by Jennifer, Becca's doppelganger, and I found the homeless men endearing. Salvatore Souza is definitely a favorite, and I can totally picture the cowboy boots and his swagger.
