AS EASY AS CHERRY PIE by Bell Renshaw, Reviewed by Kim

Bell Renshaw’s stories always remind me of a Hallmark movie! They are always sweet romances that take place in perfect small towns! I enjoyed going back to Justin Harbor!
Maggie owns a bakery that needs to be expanded and Fletcher is the guy for the job. While mishaps abound, Fletcher and Maggie try to figure out if they are meant to be together. I liked both Fletcher and Maggie as they both have a heart to help those in need. Sometimes  Fletcher’s reactions did seem a bit immature. I also had an issue with part of a thread in this story that, to me, seemed unrealistic. I wasn’t sure what message I was supposed to take away from it, so it kind of took me out of the story a bit.

If you are in the mood for a sweet Hallmark type romance, I’d suggest any of Bell Renshaw’s stories!
*I received a complimentary copy of this book. The faith thread is light.

BackCover Blurb:
Maggie Petten has perfected the perfect pie—at least that’s what everyone who tastes her confections says. After years of hard work and thousands of pounds of sugar and flour, she’s presented with an opportunity to see her business grow. One that might just be too much for her tiny shop to handle.

Fletcher Knight can’t say no to those in need. When his father died, he found himself not only in charge of the family’s contracting business but also his younger brother. Certain he was prepared for the challenge, Fletcher learns the hard way that his kindness might be his weakness. After a few financial hits, the family business and his life are close to ruin, but once again, he finds it impossible to resist Maggie Petten.

Maggie isn’t in a position to be picky, but is she ready to work with Fletcher? After all, he was her worst (and best) first date experience a year ago, but his silence since then speaks volumes. Can she risk a few weeks of discomfort working with the man who might still own a slice of her heart if it gets her closer to her dream? Or is it safer to let the dream go?

When the project begins, discomfort is only the beginning. Things turn from awkward to disastrous leaving Maggie and Fletcher questioning their working relationship and more. As they work to overcome the difficulties and setbacks life and business throws at them, they begin to realize their differences make them a great team and together their success may cross from professional to personal.

Journey back to the small, coastal town of Justin Harbor, Oregon and let the warm, salty air surround you as this couple trips and stumbles into love.
