THE KEY TO LOVE by Betsy St. Amant, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise

Come immerse yourself in charming Story, Kansas and a quaint bakery with a reputation for romance. The two elderly owners, sisters Mable and Agnes, are known as the Love Angels for their matchmaking abilities. For some much needed publicity, a travel magazine is sending a feature writer, Gerard Fortier, to do an article. Will love bloom between Gerard and Manager Bri Duval?

With hints of Paris and the Locks of Love Bridge, this story is filled with surprises. From Bri’s dreams to disappointments, the author underpins her story with faith, witty remarks and wise counsel. “Which was more loving? Suppressing concern to avoid awkwardness or delivering honesty in love?”
Serious issues are woven among cute banter. This is an enjoyable story with great heart and genuine characters. A contemporary author I will certainly read again.

BackCover Blurb:

The only thing Bri Duval loves more than baking petit fours is romance. So much so, she's created her own version of the famous Parisian lovelock wall at her bakery in Story, Kansas. She never expects it to go viral--or for Trek Magazine to send travel writer Gerard Fortier to feature the bakery. He's definitely handsome, but Bri has been holding out for a love story like the one her parents had, and that certainly will not include the love-scorned-and-therefore-love-scorning Gerard.

Just when it seems Bri's bakery is poised for unprecedented success, a series of events threaten not just her business but the pedestal she's kept her parents on all these years. Maybe Gerard is right about romance. Or maybe Bri's recipe just needs to be tweaked.

Novelist Betsy St. Amant invites you to experience this sweet story of how love doesn't always look the way we expect--and maybe that's a good thing.
