Thirty-six-year-old Emma Rae Travis has been baking specialty cakes and melt-in-your-mouth pastries at The Backstreet Bakery in historic Roswell, just outside of Atlanta, for the last six years. But here s the rub about her job as a baker ... Emma is diabetic. When she tastes her creations, it can only be in the most minute portions. Emma is considered an artisan for the stunning crÃ¨me brulee wedding cake that won her the Passionate Palette Award last year, but she s never even had one full slice of it. When Jackson Drake hears about this local baker who has won a prestigious award for her wedding cake artistry, he tells his assistant to be sure and include her in the pastry tastings scheduled at his new wedding destination hotel the following week. And for Jackson, that particular day has started out badly with two workmen trapped in a broken elevator and a delivery of several dozen 300-thread-count bed linens in the wrong size abandoned in the lobby. But when the arrogant baker he met a week prior in Roswell stumbles into the dining room with a platter of pastries and a bucketful of orders, he knows for certain: It s going to be a really rotten day. Can these two ill-suited players master the high-wire act and make a go of their new business venture? Or will they take each other crashing downward, without a net? And will the surprise wedding at The Tanglewood be theirs?

If I have to read about a Southern "drawl" again, I will flip, and it will not be a good flip. It will be a "I'm going to strangle this book!" flip. Please, all authors everywhere, stop calling it a DRAWL or a TWANG. Instead, why don't you use descriptive words like deep throaty vowels and heavy r's...
2.5 starsSo while reading Always the Baker, Never the Bride I was liking it but at times getting slightly frustrated with it. One thing I though the whole diabetic part would have a more important part of it because in the very beginning of the book (In the prologue) it has her finding out about it....
Originally posted at Nose in a BookFirst of all, this is a Christian romance. The only reason I am bringing this up right away is because I honestly had no idea. Through reading the whole book until I was about 75% done. That lead to a very funny tweet from me. Mostly of confusion. Yes, there were m...
This was a pretty quick read for me, it took me just one day to read it and I thought it was cheesy but cute. I think what kept me going throughout the book was not the romance (because this is a Christian fiction book, the romance was way tame then what we're used to here at Book Binge) but the bak...
