How to Bake a Perfect Life A Novel by Barbara O'Neal
How to Bake a Perfect Life by Barbara O’Neal is the perfect recipe for an enjoyable read. Ramona Gallagher has weathered everything from becoming a single mother at age 15 to enduring an ongoing family feud that affects her current business situation. She operates a successful bread bakery in her inherited Colorado Springs Victorian home but the slow economy and a series of small mishaps threaten her business and home. Her daughter Sofia receives a call that her soldier husband has been badly injured overseas and flies to Germany to be by his side, leaving Ramona to take care of her stepdaughter, Katie. The teenager has had a tough life with a meth addicted mother and a soldier father so she is wary of any new people in her life. Katie’s dog Merlin was rescued from the street and he plays a critical role in bringing Ramona & Katie together. Like yeasty bread, the story bubbles with love and drama and is best savored slowly.
