A Sweet Mess

Griffin: St. Martin’s. Jul. 2020. 320p. ISBN 9781250621108. pap. $16.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Aubrey Choi’s bakery business is thriving—until a scathing review from a famous food critic, who happens to be someone she had a previous connection with, puts all her hard work into jeopardy. Critic Landon Kim cannot stop thinking about Aubrey. He learns that his review was unfair and based on a misunderstanding and feels horrible. However, he believes that he cannot retract his review since it will shed light on their previous encounter and damage their careers. Instead, he offers Aubrey the chance of a lifetime to help her struggling business and hopes it is enough to warrant a second chance with her.
VERDICT Lee’s (Temporary Wife Temptation) latest is perfect for anyone who enjoyed Amy E. Reichert’s The Coincidence of Coconut Cake. Readers will get lost in Aubrey’s sugary creations while rooting for the characters to find their happily ever after.
