Book One in the French Twist Series.
Lexi Stuart is at a critical crossroads. She's done with college but still living at home, ready to launch a career but unable to find a job, and solidly stalled between boyfriends.
When a lighthearted conversation in French with the manager of her favorite bakery turns into a job offer, Lexi accepts. But the actual glamour is minimal: the pay is less than generous, her co-workers are skeptical, her bank account remains vertically-challenged, and her parents are perpetually disappointed. Her only comfort comes from the flirtatious baker she has her eye - but even may not be who he seems to be!
So when a handsome young executive dashes into the bakery to pick up his high profile company's special order for an important meeting - an order Lexi has flubbed - she loses her compulsion to please. Something inside Lexi clicks. Laissez la révolution commencer! Let the revolution begin!
Instead of trying to fulfill everyone else's expectations for her life, Lexi embarks on an adventure in trusting herself and God with her future - très bon!
This book is written from a lightly Christian world view.

Let me explain. I have been listening to a ton of BV Larson's science fiction novels, but I am a guy that likes paranormal romance. It took a little while for me to warm up to the narrator, but I did. She's sweet and soft and after a few chapters she had me. The main character has her trials that she wades through, love, work, co-workers and her relationship with GOD. I think women may relate better than myself, but the author has 'hooked' at least one man for further listening to the next chapter.
P.S. I loved the recipes woven into the story.
