There is a lot baggage standing at the counter of The Dough Knot.

Between the bride that makes bridezillas look tame and the overly laid back groom who thinks it’s natural.

The single mom baker, Charlotte Cantrell, has a trust complex. Ever since she was humiliated in her college stadium by being fingered as the other woman and left embarrassed and pregnant, Charlotte has put her daughter first and men last. Until Will Martin walked to her counter.

Will is practically in love with Charlotte before he even asks her name. If only he could get over his guilt of his sisters accident and live a life of his own.

Hott Review:

What an adorable romance! I really enjoyed both Charlotte and Will in Love Takes the Cake. Their personalities are fun and upbeat, even in the midst of turmoil.
The only thing I’ll note is that this is more of a clean romance than a Christian Romance.
