Publisher's Summary

Sometimes the sweetest things in life don’t have anything to do with dessert. 

Gwynn Flannigan wants respect from her father and freedom from her big, loud family. The icing on her cake would be to win a decorating competition hosted by her favorite food magazine writer. 

Cole Marshall's one outlet from the stress of business life is writing his Cooking in the Buff feature. Who cares if he never has time for fun? 

The answer for them both lies in the deep freeze at Sweet Endings, the struggling ice cream shop Gwynn manages and the one property Cole needs to secure a big promotion. He’s stuck in Madrigal, Indiana to unravel a knot of family drama that drives him crazy. 

Things heat up between Gwynn and Cole on the competition floor when Cole’s alter ego is revealed. Cake and accusations fly while dreams and goals are left crumbling. In order to balance family, business, and love, Gwynn, and Cole will need to work together, and become partners - in more ways than one.

Enjoyable

While I enjoyed the book, there were a few mild cuss which could have easily been left out. The dysfunctional homes and both characters certainly helped form them into who they were. I was happy to see them overcome their pasts and have a happy ending. The story had a fun feel to it. Narrative was good as well.

I received a free copy of this book and this is my honest review.

Hallmark-esk

Small town romance. These kind of stories always makes my heart say “ahhh. So cute!” I like that Gwen has good banter with the hero and didn’t put up with his bad mood.

What I didn’t like was how she let everyone else in her life take advantage of her and make her feel like her life was a failure. I prefer to read about strong girls that know how to take charge in every aspect of their lives.

Still a sweet story with a HEA.
