There seems to be a new genre up and coming: chick-lit and cookbook in one. After reading Starting Over One Cake At A Time and Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe I came across Always The Baker, Never The Bride, which unsurprisingly fell into this very same genre.

The book starts off each chapter with a mouthwatering recipe or a list of tips and tricks regarding baking and planning weddings, before continuing on with its main story about thirty-six-year-old Emma Rae Travis. The likeable baker that doesn't let herself be defined by her diabetes starts working at a new hotel in Roswell as the master baker and slowly falls in love with her boss, Jackson, who's still struggling with the loss of his wife.

The book would be a perfect chick-lit for a rainy afternoon if it weren't for the fact that the Christian undertones became more present as the book progressed and every single time seem to come out of the blue. Nothing against religion in a novel, but there's a time and a place and this unfortunately felt very forced and majorly disrupted the storyline.
