Really fun, well-written, with good character development.
It isn't overly religious or a shallow romance novel. I really cared about the characters, and felt great when the happy ending was achieved. It's a feel-good read.
What a delightful read! This is the 2nd book I have read by this author and I can highly recommend her books to anyone who enjoys well-written books based on food and magic! Lots of quirky, wonderful characters! This author reminds me of Sarah Addison Allen with her whimsical novels! Quick, satisfying read that will leave you looking at cheese with more respect next time you see it!
