How to Bake a Man - Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

When Becca Muchmore drops out of grad school, all she has left to fall back on is her baking. Ignoring her mother's usual barrage of disapproval and disappointment, she decides to start a small business hand-delivering her wares. A friend introduces her to an office of hungry lawyers, who agree to give her a try. Her lizard-booted neighbor Sal is happy to help out when he can, and almost before she knows it, Becca's Best is up and running.

Before she can settle into a routine, things get complicated. The office ogress could easily be Becca's sister and has absolutely no patience with cookies or other frivolities. Even worse, her boyfriend is the man of Becca's dreams--kind, funny, successful, and brain-meltingly gorgeous. As the dark undercurrents threaten to pull her down, Becca swiftly finds herself neck-deep in office politics, clandestine romance, and flour. Saving her business (and finding true love) is going to take everything she's got, and more.

How to Bake a Man will be released by Ghostwoods Books on October 21, 2014.

My Review:

A book of self-understanding and inner realizations, How to Bake a Man tells the story of Becca, a gal who starts a bakery and gets caught up in a whirlwind of relationship trouble. Becca falls hard for a man and sets out to expose his marriage by spying on his wife who's having an affair. And that's just part of her problems!

Becca has to deal with her intrusive mother, a bakery that's being built from the ground up, and friends who have their own relationship issues. In the end, Becca finds out who her true love was all along and learns a few things about herself.

How to Bake a Man is a well-written book, riddled with wit and humor. There were times when the barrage of characters in the book became a bit overwhelming and it took a moment to discern what was going on with whom. Other than that, it was an enjoyable chronicle of a female who goes through stages of self awareness. A nice bonus in the back of the book is a recipe section of baked goods, including Old Fashioned Gingerbread and New York Cheesecake.
