Publisher's Summary

“…entertains with descriptions of delectable food and, this time, with exquisite details of France as well… anyone who adores romance will warm to the story.”– Romantic Times

Lexi Stuart is risking it all. Saying au revoir to the security of home, her job, and could-be boyfriend, Lexi embarks on a culinary adventure in France to fulfill her life dream of becoming a pastry chef. 

Life in her new quaint French village should be everything she dreamed of, but settling in isn’t nearly as easy as she imagined. Her optimism is greeted with both acceptance and resistance in the people and culture around her—soft and crusty at the same time— like the very best baguettes. Determined to gain her footing, she finds a church, meets new friends, and makes the acquaintance of a child named Celine - as well as Celine's attractive, widowed father. 

As Lexi lives her dream, she realizes she can have anything from life's patisserie display window, but not everything. How will she choose? 

Devour this delicious series, lashed with romance, fun, and spiced with a lightly Christian world view. Bon Appétit!

Wonderful story

The characters and with lifestyles of the French were spot on. I listened through Audible. The narrator was very good. I am still waiting for which of the two love interests will she choose. I guess she will have to pray on it.

A Delightful Story for Foodies :)

I'm a foodie at heart- so I really enjoyed "Bon Appetit." It follows an American who moves to France to work in a bakery and go to pastry school. I loved all the descriptions of the delicious desserts she prepared as part of her coursework. It made me want to fly over to a Paris for lunch!

The rest of the story about Lexi coming into her own in a foreign country was also good- but a bit slow in parts. I loved the narrator- she had wonderful inflection when she read and her French accent is quite good. I'm looking forward to reading the last book in the series to find out where Lexi ends up!

Favorite Books!!

I love these books so much! Lexi is basically living my dream life and if I can't actually live it myself then at least I can experience it through the authors fun and descriptive writing.

For Some Reason As I Listen I Feel Very Hungry

Dieter's beware, all the luscious mentions of food, pastries, cakes, breads and soups? I am surely to have gained 5 pounds.
The author has a way of writing that makes you want to learn French, speak it, live it. After finishing I immediately wondered who I could share the story with.
