If you’re looking for a laugh out loud, romantic comedy, look no further than Janice Thompson’s latest novel in the Weddings by Design series, The Icing on the Cake.
From the Publisher
Scarlet isn’t sure if she has just the right ingredients for true love–or utter disaster…
Scarlet Lindsey is busy making her dreams come true. She’s moved her bakery to a prime spot on Galveston’s most popular street, she’s planning an extravagant cake for her best friend’s wedding, and she has a great relationship with Bella Neeley, the island’s most popular wedding coordinator. Business is booming and Scarlet is enjoying the ride.
But when Bella’s dangerously handsome brother Armando breezes into her life, Scarlet is faced with a sticky situation. Should she stay with the safe, sweet guy who’s been a fixture in her life for years? Or will this brash Italian hunk melt her guarded heart?
I absolutely adore Janice Thompson’s writing – I know I can expect a good belly laugh when I pick up her latest novel, and The Icing on the Cake did not disappoint!
In book two of the Weddings by Design series, Janice turns the focus on Scarlet Lindsey, baker extraordinaire. As a baker, Scarlet struggles with self-control when it comes to eating sweets [and who wouldn’t when surrounded by such temptations all day long!], and she decides to “shrink” her “Stinky Buns” during a particularly stressful couple of weeks, leading up to the wedding of her best friend, Hannah [the main character in book one of the Wedding by Design series, Picture Perfect: read my review]. Dieting on a deadline is more difficult than Scarlet imagined, and she learns the hard way that how she looks on the outside isn’t as important as she thought.
Through her rabbit trail style of writing [one of the few rabbit trail styles I actually enjoy], Janice Thompson takes readers on a journey full of laughs and ending in romances that you’ll cheer for!
I give The Icing on the Cake four stars.
