Ricki Sparks knows she can make a mean red velvet cake but can’t believe she’s let herself be talked into a blind date. When she opens the door to see the man she’s been secretly sweet on since the first day he walked into her bakery, she fears her heart will be demolished. At least she knows she’s in for a wild ride.
With a past like his, private investigator Garrett McBride doesn’t feel he’s worthy of a good woman’s love. Especially not Ricki, the sweet, beautiful baker. But its not just her delectable baked goods that keep him coming back and it isn’t long before he admits to himself that he wants her for his own. He never suspects that the greatest danger to her may come not from himself, but from the deceitful woman Ricki has befriended.
Love may not be the only thing Ricki falls into along the way as she finds herself in a world of deceit and betrayal that may cost her life. While Ricki is fighting for her life, Garrett must find her, before it’s too late.
When I read the back cover to this story, I had to laugh. Why? Well, I just sent in my own story featuring a baker to my editor and now I was going to start reading about a baker from one of my favorite authors. Ironic huh?
Thankfully, Ricki didn’t own/operate a naughty baker and my story didn’t feature a P.I. Phew, what a relief. 🙂
(Back to the review)
What I loved about “PWY” was the plot. So many stories center around a guy obsessed over a woman. In this story, a mentally unstable woman (Deena) fixated on Ricki and wanted her all to herself. Believe me, Deena was a total nutcase!
Also, many shining stars in a story are the humans. In this case, I have to say Xena, Ricki’s companion, out shined them all in the end.
