A cookbook author’s sweet debut novel
What’s the recipe for a good summer read?
Well, it should be light (no 700-page tomes allowed). It should be fun (twisting, turning plotlines welcome). And above all, it should be easy to consume while sipping mojitos by the pool (naturally).
Luckily, The Cake Therapist by Judith Fertig ticks all those boxes.
The best-selling cookbook author’s debut novel follows Claire “Neely” O’Neil, a pastry chef who tries to start over by opening her dream bakery in her hometown. But Neely is no ordinary baker--she can “taste” the feelings of her customers and whip up confections to help them solve their problems. But maybe being back home can help Neely finally help herself.
