Lexi is a young woman trying to find her place in the world. She loves everything French, and even got a degree in French studies, but now can't seem to find a job that she likes or that will pay enough to support her.
This was a good story about relying on God when you don't know where to turn.
I felt like this was written by Mary Catherine Gallager from the movie "Superstar". It's definitely a book with "positive moral values". Aside from having the author's Christian beliefs shoved down my throat the entire time, the book was just ok. The character development wasn't very good and the plot was boring and predictable.
I love sweets so when I first heard about this French Twist series a few years ago I was immediately intrigued. I'm so happy to have finally had the chance to read the first book, Let Them Eat Cake. Woven into the story are well-placed recipes for sweets and treats like coconut cake and "Boyfriend Bait" and that's not good if you're easily tempted to try these mouth-watering delights for yourself as I am! Reader beware, this book will not help your waistline one bit! Lexi is definitely a talent in the kitchen and I love how it's reflected with the inserted recipes.
I loved Lexi's journey from being stuck in a cubicle, to perfecting her recipes, to dreaming about a job in Paris. Even though it's Christian fiction this very much reminds me of the film Sabrina. If there's any romance for Lexi as it looks like there's going to be, hopefully it's just as sigh worthy as one of my favorite classic films.
Let Them Eat Cake ends with quite the cliffhanger. It will be interesting to see just how Lexi adjusts to her new life and how she copes away from her family and new found friends. Trust me, if you enjoyed her story as much as I did you will want to have book 2, Bon Appetit on hand to read immediately. Let Them Eat Cake is free on Kindle now through February 14, 2013, so if you want to take a chance on this great book you can!

Magnifique! :) I loved the book and it was a very quick read. Made you want to get into the kitchen and start baking or go to France or learn French or visit a bakery. I look forward to reading more by this author.
