In Glory, Kansas, the best bakery in three counties not only brings together ingredients for sweet treats, but is the place where - through the powerful mix of friendship, community and a well-stocked kitchen - a wounded hero can forge a forever kind of love. Back in the hometown he left behind five years ago, Jack McConnell has returned battle-scarred and feeling like half a man. But Betsy Lewis only sees the hero who once saved her life and set her heart on fire. Now she's burning to save him in return. She'll use every trick she's got up her sleeve, from her generous natural assets to her talent for baking, to coax Jack out from the bottom of his whiskey bottle. At first, Jack responds to Betsy like any red-blooded man would. He's always denied his attraction to the innocent girl he used to know, but he's returned to find Betsy's grown into a full-on woman with strength enough for both of them. Until Jack realizes the only way to conquer his demons and be worthy of the hero's mantle she's pinned to his shoulders is to save Betsy one last time - from himself.

30 year old bibliophile. I love a good love story.
No. I feel like all the elements were there but it was missing something. The hero got better too quick the heroine was overly sweet and it felt forced when she was being tough. It just didn't feel authentic to me. Almost like the author picked a couple of romantic genres and then tried to cram a story to fit it. Older brothers best friend, military hero, girl next door it just was too much
India. Sadly her story intrigued me more then the main plot. I Would have loved to know her history.
I felt almost as though she had a distaste for the characters and couldn't sell it because of that.
No and there should have been. In this type of story you expect a few tears but nothing.
