What an enjoyable read. The story about a 31 year old woman who gets dumped by her husband is neither new nor original. But in Ms. Hendricks' capable hands, we are treated to the tale of a wonderful character who comes into her own when she relocates and takes a job at a neighborhood bakery. Great secondary characters, witty dialogue and terrific recipes. I liked it so much I couldn't wait to dive into the follow up - The Baker's Apprentice. Treat yourself to two great reads. Ms. Hendricks has now become one of my favorite authors.

This book is a must read for anyone who is a native Washingtonian and a sucker for a good love story! The book is set in Seattle, Wa, and is about a breadmaker named Wyn. I literally could not put it down, and I am currently reading the sequal "The Baker's Apprentice"

This is a light read, and a somewhat predictable romance. I liked the details about working in a bread bakery and how the protagonist found her vocation there. The details about a woman whose creating a new life after the breakup of her marriage, and the details about baking were of interest to me.

I found this immensely readable, not your average chick-lit. The story itself was predictable, but the voice was enjoyable. The way the narrator refers to her work reminds me of the coffeehouse mysteries... a few recipes are thrown in, as well.

This book is a fabulous read. I found myself reading little sections at a time because I didn't want it to end. I'm hoping for a sequel!

It is a great winter time read. I will read anything else by this author.

I couldn't put this book down! Cracked it open and read it straight through, exhausted and bleary-eyed. Makes me want to open a bakery. Looking forward to exploring more from this author.

Delightful tale about a woman's second chance at life. Warm and witty, I almost couldn't post this one to share, as I wanted to keep it in my "keeper's bookshelf." However, I decided that the spirit of literature is to share it, so I am finally posting one of my favorite "feel good" reads.
