Just as cake and icing go together, THE CAKE THERAPIST blends generations and sweets and turns both into one heartfelt story.
THE CAKE THERAPIST is a wonderful treat for the senses, especially your taste buds, as well as feelings.
Claire O'Neil Davis has come back home to fulfill her dream of owning a bakery because it just felt like the right thing to do since she and her husband were having problems because of his infidelity
Claire seems to have a knack to be able to "read" people and be able to match up cake batter and icing to the person's mood. That definitely is a plus when she is helping couples choose the correct batter and icing for their wedding cakes.
Her talent of being able to "read" people definitely helps her figure out that her neighbor has some connection to a wedding couple's father and grumpy Mrs. Amici next door. This is when the fun begins.
If you want a "sweet" read that has love, family, sharing, and just darn good feelings in it, read THE CAKE THERAPIST.
You won't be disappointed, and you will be running to your nearest bakery to get some sweet treats and perhaps trying to figure out if you are chocolate and raspberry or blueberry and lemon.
The only thing that was a bit confusing was the reason for the flashbacks to the 1940's, but it all comes out in the final chapters that resound with a "yeah" for cake and as Claire says: "The Power Of Cake." Page 248
