The only thing Bri Duval loves more than baking petit fours is romance. So much so, she’s created her own version of the famous Parisian lovelock wall at her bakery in Story, Kansas. She never expects it to go viral–or for Trek Magazine to send travel writer Gerard Fortier to feature the bakery. He’s definitely handsome, but Bri has been holding out for a love story like the one her parents had, and that certainly will not include the love-scorned-and-therefore-love-scorning Gerard. Just when it seems Bri’s bakery is poised for unprecedented success, a series of events threaten not just her business but the pedestal she’s kept her parents on all these years. Maybe Gerard is right about romance. Or maybe Bri’s recipe just needs to be tweaked.
Novelist Betsy St. Amant invites you to experience this sweet story of how love doesn’t always look the way we expect–and maybe that’s a good thing.

Betsy St. Amant is a new to me, author, the cover drew me in instantly, therefore I was very excited to read about Bri Duval’s adventures at the Pastry Puff bakery in the small town of Story, Kansas. Her love, hate relationship with Gerard Fortier, a writer from Trek Magazine a Chicago-based travel magazine was entertaining. I love the small-town vibes that I got while reading it; you could picture the beauty of Story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading my first book by St.Amant, and it will not be my last.
