The Baker's Husband is a mystery/romance. The mystery surrounds Chloe Livingston's husband, who has been gone for two year, since an accident where his car was totaled but he wasn't found. The romance involves Mitchell Terrison, a detective who is in charge of finding Chloe's missing husband. Although two years is a long time and Chloe finds she is attracted to Mitchell, her feelings are complicated by her belief in the sanctity of marriage and the fact that despite numerous problems, Chloe love ...more

A sweet story about a second chance love. I was taken in by the Mitchell character. I don't usually go for the archetypal good guy but I really wanted to be in his BMW with him; I think it was time for me to read something with a nice guy.
Reading this also made me want to a) bake and b) take a trip to Maine.
Even though I enjoyed Mitchell, and the relationship with Chloe, I wish I had seen more of Chloe being angry. As it is, she spent a lot of time confused, which is appropriate, but I guess i

This is the first time I've read a Christian thriller/suspense, and it won't be the last.

Chloe's bakery has the best brownies in town, but not every aspect of her life is so sweet. Her husband disappeared two years before under mysterious circumstances. Although presumed dead, his fate is unclear. When Chloe meets the new detective, sparks start to fly. Guilt and uncertainty make it impossible for her to embrace a new romance. After all, it's not sure what her husband's fate truly was or even if

The Baker's Husband had true potential. It was a great example of the genre. If you want a light-hearted story based on building a christian-based relationship, be sure to check it out.

For the most part, the characters were well written, memorable, and distinctive. I found them easy to relate to, but at times they were unbelieveable, or made choices not true to their character. I didn't understand the "insta-love" factor on part of Mitchell. I would've liked a bit more background as to why he l

Chloe’s husband disappeared two years ago, and despite people’s insistence that she let him go and move on with her life, her heart feels differently. She can’t just let go of the love she had for him. Jake was her world. When investigator Mitchell Terrison appears willing to help with Jakes case, a case that had gone cold and many had given up on, she is convinced that God sent him to her for a reason.
Chloe’s faith is challenged in this story. And her desire to find out what happened to her hu

Although not my kind of story, Jeannie is able through her crafty writing style to keep the suspense going and my interest to boot. Mitchell, a private detective in charge to find out what happened to Chloe’s husband who disappeared 2 years ago. An accident but nobody––is Chloe’s husband still alive? Will Mitchell be allowed to explore further romantic feelings with a soul torn to honor her marital vows. The bible is thrown around with suspense in the course of events. Although some sub-plots de ...more

I have been enjoying this new to me author. I came across another one of her books and found I really enjoyed her writing style and story telling. From there I just had to pick up another. I have not regretted that decision. I think this story was amazing. I could really get into it and the setting was wonderful. Maine is my hometown. I lived not far from the setting of this story, so it made it entertaining to have where I'm from portrayed in this beautifully written story. It made imagining ev ...more

The book,’ Baker’s Husband is more of a Christian Romance/ Drama!
Like the Angela Lansbury mystery stories in ‘Murder She wrote’, this book, ‘Baker’s Husband', isn’t murder, but a mystery story as Chloe try's to find her husband, Jake. After searching for Jake on her own, Chloe met Detective Mitchell who wanted to help Chloe find her husband with the clues they had. This book is so interesting to follow; I loved the mystery and the suspense of the story. I also loved how Chloe had such a deep fai

My first Christian-Romance-Mystery! How to judge it? On the Christian level, it follows healthy moral teachings, includes several verses, and should please and pass all judgment. The romance loosely follows the Life and Hallmark Channels but I enjoyed the mystery most of all as the premise pricked my curiosity right out of the box. It’s an excellent hook and I was never tempted to look ahead to read the ending as it flowed quite smoothly. I did not solve the mystery despite picking up all the cl ...more
