Flaky chocolate croissant? Warm Café Creme? Lose yourself for a few hours in this delicious, culinary romp through Seattle and Paris as Lexi Stuart comes to understand that God not only places dreams within our hearts He brings them to pass.
Let Them Eat Cake
Lexi Stuart finished college but is still living at home, ready to launch a career but unable to find a job, solidly stalled between boyfriends. When a lighthearted conversation in French turns into a job offer, Lexi accepts. But the actual glamour is minimal: the pay is less than generous, her co-workers are skeptical, and her parents are perpetually disappointed. Her only comfort comes from the flirtatious baker she has her eye on – but even may not be who he seems to be!
As she settles into her new home in a French village to study and work, Lexi’s exuberant twenty-something optimism encounters Gallic resistance. Determined to find her footing, she finds a church, a friend, and little Celine, whose father, Phillipe, is a handsome widower.
But what about Dan who visits her in romantic Paris?
Pièce de Résistance
Having earned her chef’s hat, Lexi Stuart bids au revoir to her glamorous and deliciously satisfying pastry mentorship outside of Paris and returns to her hometown of Seattle, Washington. There, she finds life unexpectedly complicated.
She’s put in charge of a high-end catering bakery called Bijoux, which should be her dream job, but there’s a catch: She has to make this lavish bakery into a successful business in just a few, short months, which will require more than her ability to make an amazing wedding cake. Stir in a complicated relationship with her French beau Philippe and his daughter, Celine, then add a dash of romance with down-to-earth lawyer Dan, and life suddenly contains more ooh la la than Lexi can handle.
