After 20 years at a local television station Julie Mueller’s career is looking up. But then she has a chance to reconnect with the one man she’s always loved, someone she’s grown up with. I was attracted to this book because of the cover and title, and the idea that she and this man would reconnect over a series of dessert classes. I honestly didn’t like this too much. At first I thought I did, but then I realized the book is about her relationship with her mother as well and perhaps this reveals something about me, but I thought her mother was a tiresome meddler who was completely exasperating. When Julie berated herself for not being there for her mother (which was totally untrue) I just thought it was nonsense. And her father’s behavior (absenteeing himself during any medical crises, like cancer) was so horrible that I thought Julie should have done something about it. There was a lot going on here between a breast cancer scare, budding romance, the dessert classes, solving a murder, and her mother and I was never really in a good groove with this one.
