it was ok
bookshelves: ugh

I enjoyed several of Kauffman's other books (notably the "Glass Slipper, Inc" series). They were light, but I could identify with the characters and they were fun reads. This book just seemed to drag on forever... I actually listened to it, rather than reading it-- which meant that I couldn't "skim". It was excruciating! I got so tired of the main female character's angst, hand-wringing, and indecision. There was lots of "wrestling" going on, but most of it was metaphorical and not particularly compelling or interesting. And it was very repetitive!
I never grew to like, much less identify with, any of the characters. And I didn't think that the "baking" schtick created an interesting hook, at least not the way that it was portrayed. By the time the main characters finally hooked up (which, of course, was inevitable), I didn't really CARE-- I just wanted to be done with the book! I MAY read the second book in the series, but only because several other reviewers who seem to share my opinion about this one have indicated that it is a better book!

Susan I agree. What a disappointment. Lots of talk, no action.

Robin I felt the same way! I actually did start skipping most of it about midway, and I don't think I missed anything.
