Book Review: "Piece de Resistance" by Sandra Byrd

Product Description
Having earned her chef’s hat, Lexi Stuart bids au revoir to her glamorous and deliciously satisfying pastry mentorship outside of Paris and returns to her hometown of Seattle, Washington. There, she finds life unexpectedly complicated.

She’s put in charge of a high-end catering bakery called Bijoux, which should be her dream job, but there’s a catch: She has to make this lavish bakery into a successful business in just a few, short months, which will require more than her ability to make an amazing wedding cake. In over her head and at a loss for creative marketing ideas, Lexi isn’t sure what the recipe for success needs to be.

Stir in a complicated relationship with her French beau, Philippe, and his daughter, Celine, then add a dash of romance with down-to-earth lawyer Dan an dlife suddenly contains more ooh la la than Lexi can handle.

With the fate of her career and her love life hanging by a thread, the phrase “piece of cake” has never been more daunting. Lexi learns that she must trust the dreams in her heart and the God who put them there.

My overall feeling of the book:
I absolutely loved all three of the books in the “French Twist” Series. They all contained baking and cooking as the main theme. The books had wonderful recipes printed throughout so we can all try them ourselves.

Being the last book of the series, it really wraps up all the loose ends very nicely. But, I won’t tell you which guy, Philippe or Dan, that Lexi ends up with.

My Favorite Character:
In this case, the heroine, Lexi, is my favorite character. I could relate to her insecurities and struggles to trust God for her well-being and future.

My Favorite Scene:
The last scene is my favorite. I’ll tell you that it involves a ring, but I won’t tell you who is giving or receiving it!

It Would Have Been Better If:
I really can’t think of anything that I would change..

Would I recommend This Book?:
Yes, Yes, Yes As I’ve said, I loved this entire series. I would, however, recommend reading all three books in order. It will be well worth it if you do.

9/10: Fantastic! I couldn’t put it down.
