Sweet all around – from the macarons to the love lock wall! Betsy St. Amant’s book, The Key to Love, is one that could be the premise of a Hallmark movie. When a small town bakery is struggling to thrive, the only hope they have is resting on a journalist who is the least likely to appreciate the heart of their business and write a raving review.
It was easy to imagine stepping through the doors of the Pastry Puff and getting to know the people of the town. The two sisters who own the bakery are hilarious in their banter back and forth. The tension between the bakery chef, Bri Duval, and Gerard Portier, the motorcycle riding journalist, is predictable but not a deal breaker. The characters overcome disappointment but discover that expectations can hide the very things you are searching for. Overall the story was witty, charming, wholesome and a fun read! Don’t be surprised when you start craving macarons!
