FTC FYI: Received a PDF copy in exchange for an honest review.
Twenty-four year-old, Abby Benson has dreams of owning her own wedding cake shop. An inheritance from her aunt gives her the ability to make those dreams come true. She hires Dane, a handsome contractor, to help her get the bakery up and running and soon they’re moving toward their own happy ending.
Unsure what to charge for her cakes, Abby has a crazy idea to let the customers decide what they think their cake is worth. This plan has its ups and downs, but the novelty of the idea makes her a local celebrity. When she is interviewed on television about the unusual idea, business booms and Abby has cake adventures she never dreamed possible. But as her fame grows, Abby is swept up in a whirlwind that threatens everything she values. With the challenges that face her, will she be able to determine what is worth the most?
We start off at the reading of Abby's aunt's will. She left her two nieces and nephews each something they knew they would treasure. Kate, the house she needed, Evan the horse stables he loved. For Abby, starter money, and the building for a her own wedding cake bakery. Abby was hesitant at first to get started, but once she got brave enough, there was no stopping her.
I instantly liked this book. The characters are so well written, and I immediately cared for them. Abby is a wonderful girl and I enjoyed the journey of her little "A Piece of Cake" that could, and especially how she found love, worth, and most importantly herself. When things were hard, she remembered (after a nudging from her sister Kate) what her relationship with her Heavenly Father and Jesus were worth, and that helped things fall into place for her.
4 out of 5 stars. My favorite part was the ending when Abby travels to California to do a cake for a celebrity. I can't say anything else without needing a spoiler alert, but I really liked it.
