This is a sequel to Bread Alone so it helps to have read the first book. There are quirky small town characters and strong women. Overall I liked the book but it's not something I would read again. It's not as good as Isabel's Daughter which is my favorite Judith Hendricks' story. Baker's Apprentice dragged in the middle. I skipped several pages just to get past the boring section. The middle portion about Mac was definitely lacking something. It felt unfinished which is a shame because I think there was a lot of potential to have gone somewhere with it. On the plus side, there are some great mouthwatering recipes here. Might be worth getting the book just for those recipes.

I loved this book. This is the 2nd book- the first being "Bread Alone". Both books are fairly simple in storyline, but the storyline is real. It's a book about life. It gave me urges to go bake bread, and to go call my best friend. This is a must read!

This is actually the sequel to Bread Alone, but I haven't yet read the first novel, and still really enjoyed this one. A baker working in the Queen Anne district of Seattle, her friendships and boyfriend struggles - an easy, rainy day kind of read.

I LOVED this book. It held my interest to the very end. However, I was a little disappointed in how it ended. It was a little abrupt and left you saying, "that's it?!"

Easy, fun read. Nice sequel, but ending just petered out with some things unresolved. Feels like it was being set up for another sequel.
