Still emotionally traumatized by her disastrous marriage, Greta is desperately trying to take care of her mother with newly diagnosed Alzheimers. As if that’s not enough, some scheming socialite has gotten it into her head that the ground that Greta’s inherited wedding dress shop and home sits on would be better utilized as the parking lot for a new mall.
Though about half of the town stands behind Greta against the development of the mall, Greta is quickly running out of time and funds.
Then the most gorgeous man descends into her shop and Greta starts to believe again… until she finds that he’s not only engaged to the enemy but her lawyer, as well.
Okay – get it out of your head now. Gingerbread has nothing to do with a holiday but everything to do with architecture. It took me forever to pick this book up – just because I didn’t want to read a Christmas book!
What I liked: This book was really very sweet. It was an adorable romance with strife, conflict, and a wicked… um, witch :). I thought it was truly adorable how absolutely sweet it was and I was impressed that the author made such a good book with no foul language and only a sweet kiss or two!
What I didn’t like: It was a bit short. Though it did fit into a nice spring afternoon!
After moving to L.A. my senior year in high school, I graduated from the College of Creative Studies at UC Santa Barbara with a degree in Literature.
I now live in SUNNY Denver, Colorado with my husband Ben, our Italian Greyhound, Kelby and a fickle cat named Oliver.
When I’m not writing or bored at my day job, I like to cook, garden and work on the endless renovations of our 1922 bungalow.
