Conrad Rogers moved to Sweet Blooms to reinvent himself. When the head pastry chef announces his retirement David expects a promotion, not competition. When Lili arrives with her big-city attitude and award-winning wine cakes things really heat up.

                           MY REVIEW 
    This is a sweet story of two headstrong pastry chefs working in a small restaurant and the love that blossoms between them . Lili has been working the past six years as the main pastry chef in a 3 star restaurant . Until the day she is told that she doesn't fit the corporate image of the restaurant . When she is down and thinking that no one would want a curvy girl as a pastry chef . She gets a call that will change her life and hopefully will bring her the love she deserves . Conrad who has been working at Sweet Blooms is head strong and loves working in the restaurant . Together will they either kill each other or will love bloom . 
   The characters in this story are sweet . Lili is a curvy girl who loves to create pastries . She seems to me a little down on herself and she is way too hard on herself . You do see her grow and blossom while she is working with Conrad .  Conrad is a sweet guy who would love to be the head pastry chef . He has fallen for the pretty co chef and wonders what would happen if. He is a really nice guy sometimes too nice . But to me the best character in the book is grandma . She is hilarious and loves to give her two cents to everyone .The way she tells it is so funny she is always just letting everyone find their own way . The characters are well written but I do think the author could of added a bit more depth to them . 
   This was a sweet fast read for me I read it in an afternoon . The author takes us on a nice ride . The characters are sweet and the story is sweet . There is an attraction but the author lets it build slowly .  I truly liked the story but what stopped me from really liking it was the fact that the author could of built up the story line just a bit. He could of went in a little deeper into each of the characters and gave them a little bit more of a back story. It did seem a little flat in a few areas . Over all I loved the story and would read more from this author . So if you want a sweet story of love and pastries this book should be added to your winter reading list
