You've Got Cake by Susan Willis tells the story of a single mother's accidental discovery of love in the midst of running a bakery. Michelle hasn't even thought about dating since her divorce as her life has only been focused on her bakery and her daughter. Now that her daughter is a teenager and the bakery is running smoothly, Michelle allows herself to relax a little when she meets Gregg. The two seem to be perfect for each other, and Michelle suddenly feels younger and happier than she has been in years. However, Gregg has a little secret, and disclosing it will pretty much destroy his and Michelle's relationship. Whether he tells her or not, Michelle's bakery may not have a future for much longer.
Susan Willis presents us with two lead characters who are easy to both love and hate based on the very realistic, though sometimes poor decisions that they make. Honestly, I hated Gregg way more than I loved him, but Michelle liked him, so I rooted for their relationship despite my own feelings toward him. Michelle's bakery made for a fun setting, and the supporting characters were some of the most interesting people who helped to drive the plot. The inclusion of these characters, different baking techniques, and the everyday duties involved in running the bakery brought the setting to life. Anyone with a sweet tooth and a passion for sweet romance would enjoy picking up You've Got Cake for a quick read.
