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?
Once again. the beautiful families, friendships, and romances in this series are evident and entwined throughout the entire novel. While this book is the second in the series, it is a different main character than the first book so you don't need to read the first one if you don't want to.

I loved Scarlet's story more than Hannah's, partially because of the food tie-ins and partially because she is just so lovable! Her self-talk is so relatable and many times I wished I could just give her a big hug. The relationship between her and Armando was realistic, which is refreshing when so many romance novels are predictable.

If you're looking for a sweet romance where family is the icing on the relationship, pick up this book!
