    "A "Sweet" journey of faith and self-discovery"

    Alexandra "Lexi" Stuart is 24 and has just moved back in with her parents because she is unable to keep a job. She feels like a complete failure in her professional, personal, and spiritual life, especially when compared to her soon-to-be-wed older brother (a lawyer). Things start to change, however, when she lands a job at L'esperance bakery and starts attending church again. Through a series of ups and downs, Lexi learns to love her neighbor, to live at peace with others, and she starts to realize what can happen when she lets go and trusts God to know what's best for her.

    The main reason that I got this book was that the second one caught my eye, but I figured I should start at the beginning. I'm glad I gave this one a listen. Although I didn't feel that I had a lot in common with Lexi, I found myself cheering for her as she matured into someone that cared less about herself and more about others. I thought there were some very good lessons for women of any age in this story, and a few good recipes to boot!

    "narrator ruined book for me"
    Would you try another book from Sandra Byrd and/or Carine Montbertrand?

    Based on on the audible version of this book I don't think I would.


    If you’ve listened to books by Sandra Byrd before, how does this one compare?

    This is my first. I bought this and the next book in the series before listening to the sample. I think I will possibly 'read' the Kindle version of Bon Appetit, and just let the audible version remain unopened in my audible app. I will try to continue by 'reading' the next one but not 'listen' to it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Carine Montbertrand’s performances?

    No! This narrator has the voice of a children's cartoon character. I was totally put off by it. Not one person in the book rang true as a real person. She constantly sounded as though she were reading the book for the first time, pausing in inappropriate places. I went to amazon to read the reviews and was amazed this book garnered as many positives as it had. But the reviews were for the written book not the audible version. So I checked and found I had it on my kindle and started reading it. I then found it to be rather enjoyable. In my opinion, Audible did this author a great disservice by choosing this particular narrator to read her books as they can make or break a book. In this instance I don't feel she did the book justice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not.

    Story
    "Simple Religious Story"

    There wasn't too much to this book. It was mainly a girl asking God what she should do. She lives at home because she can't keep a job and finally ends up taking one at a bakery for not much pay. Her parents are moving so she needs to find a place to live - which is hard since she's not making much. There are a couple recipes which might be interesting. All in all it was too young of a read for me with a lot of Christianity overtones - reading from the bible, trying to find a church that feels right, asking if the boyfriend is a Christian, etc

    The narrator wasn't that good. She made some of the voices sound really strange.
