Summary

Running the family bakery and living in the store's attic might not be Daisy's dream life, but she's beginning to understand what being content feels like. And then she gets some unexpected news. In one moment, Daisy's calm existence turns into chaos. Now she's struggling to keep it together, especially with renovations at the bakery spiraling out of control.But when a box of recipes and mementos is found hidden behind a wall in the bakery, Daisy suddenly has something to cling to-a mystery that echoes her own troubles and gives her the opportunity to figure out what she really wants out of life.

Critic reviews

"Absorbing characters, a hint of mystery and touching self-discovery elevate this novel above many others in the genre." ( RT Book Reviews)

Great!

Great story and characters! Hope more to come. Narrator is the best! Union Street Bakery is a wonderful setting and the plot was so very interesting.

Great follow up

This book was good like the first one - Union Street Bakery. I enjoyed these books because of the honesty and realness of the relationships and the inner struggle of the main character Daisy. I too suffered the trauma of rejection and abandonment. Though my situation was different it was the same pain. The same reactions to what life can throw our way. Thank you for allowing some healing in the midst of honest life-giving laughter and heart-togging emotions.

Wonderful story

Unlike the first book in this series, there wasn’t as much cussing which made the story much more enjoyable. I loved this book and read it quickly.

Much skipping.

The first book kept my interest but this one would be better is abridged. I kept skipping ahead because of the main characters constant pitty parties and negative attitude. Very depressing.

Such a sweet story.

Loved all of the characters, depth of feeling, glimpses into the past. Very nice story, as was the prequel to this book, The Union Street Bakery.
