review 1: How to Bake a Perfect Life is a women’s fiction selection told from varying viewpoints. Ramona is a single mother of an adult married daughter, Sophia, the result of a one time encounter as a young teen. Sophia is pregnant with her husband’s child while her husband is deployed, and Katie is Sophia’s step daughter who needs a place to stay while her mother is incarcerated. Ramona is also the proprietor of a struggling bakery business located in a town in which her family owns a series of food related businesses organized under the management of her estranged father. This was an okay read. I really didn’t get the whole estrangement thing, it seemed she was picking and choosing, blaming the family for siding with her ex in one breath and then still having relatio... morenships with her mother and brother in the next. I just didn’t really connect with the characters to a point where I cared about them.
review 2: I really enjoyed this book, as one who enjoys baking myself it offered a different aspect that most books don't with so much depth of the bakery and incorporation of the recipes. But above and beyond that the characters were real, the good, the bad and the ugly. You really got to know the characters and eagerly waiting to see how things were going to turn out. This is my second book by this author and now I think it is time to go find more of hers to read. less
