Why, you might be asking? Because I just finished the light-hearted read, The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Cafe.
The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Cafe by Mary Simses isn’t a book I would normally have picked up. I’d probably classifying the book as chick lit and move on.
But it’s hard to deny a free book in the mail, especially when you and the author have South Florida connections, so I picked it up.
Anyway, Ellen has a picture perfect life. She’s a successful lawyer with a handsome, wealthy lawyer fiance, living in Manhattan and experiencing only the best that life has to offer.
Then her grandmother passes away and leaves Ellen with a dying wish: deliver a letter (which happens to be to a lost love). Ellen takes the task to heart, driving to Beacon, Maine to hand deliver her grandmother’s letter.
But after being saved from an accidental fall off an old dock, Ellen uncovers more than just her grandmother’s past.
Ellen has to come to terms with her life as it is now. . . especially when what she learns in Beacon forces her to make some difficult decisions.
The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Cafe is a quick, light read, perfect for summer (which is even more perfect since the book comes out in July!).
The only thing that would have made this book better would be if it had come with a few of Gran’s blueberry muffins!
What types of books do you enjoy as summer reads?
