    " Cute book--VERY simple, happy. Of course it makes me want to eat desseret, croissants--anything french! "

    " Fun book to read about a girl who fulfills her dream to go to France and goes there to study pastry making and working in a pastry shop. She leaves a serious suitor behind with no strings and goes off on her dream. The beginning is filled with anxiety and loneliness as she embarks on her journey, but she makes friends through doing her job day in and day out. She entertains romance and experiences a growth promoting experience. The book has some serious Christian themes which I enjoyed and found unusual due to a seemingly regular book. "

    " I thought this book was really Comical. It's about a girl who moves from america to france to become a professional pastry chef. She has a lot of big choices to make like stay in france or go back to america. This book also has a couple of good recipes as well. "

    " i enjoyed the second part to this book. this second book really showed lexie's growth not just an a baker but a woman, i am fascinated and really urging to see how her relationship with Philippe and Dan goes. can't wait for the next and last book! "

    " Loving this so far! It's especially interesting after reading Chateau of Echoes by Siri Mitchell, which had a lot of detail on France and French cooking - reading this right now almost makes it okay that Chateau of Echoes is over... and this one is very well-written. "

    " Light fare for chicks,riddled with erroneous French expressions, but still enjoyable to read. A young baker from Seattle trades job with a French woman for a year, to study at a prestigious Parisian baking school and to work at a couple of boulangeries. A fresh, credible story wends its ways through hackneyed cliches of the American moving to France, finding first isolation and culture abysses but eventually some balance and delicate romance. Best of all, the female character is Christian; she is chaste, prays daily for guidance, reads the Bible, and goes to an anglophone church, deploring the defunct, individualistic faith of her adoptive country. I chanced upon this book right after watching the movie "Julie and Julia", and the freezing (Minnesotan) holidays provided many opportunities to test all these theories about cooking and eating - I even had a close encounter with Betty Crocker and the Pillbury Doughboy at the Mills City Museum in Minneapolis! "

    " This book had potential to be soo great! I found that its overly Christian parts took away from that. I believe in God and everything but I just can't stand when religion is forced onto me as it was in this book. Other than that I loved all the talking about baking as I like to bake myself <3 I also liked that I could relate to Lexi as I am the same age and going through the same dilemma's in life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christa | 1/13/2014

    " A fun and frothy read that examines one woman's journey to finding her true calling, identity and love. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ann Diab | 12/5/2013

    " Meh. I got it at the library. It's pretty light and fluffy. At least it never made me cry. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 12/3/2013

    " An easy, fast read that leaves one with a good feeling. I'd be tempted to argue for a strong 3.5 rating, but the book was a little too preachy in some places, for my taste. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanya | 11/25/2013

    " Liked it, but it leaves you hanging for more. "

    " ONCE AGAIN!! I LOVED it! Sandra Byrd is a amazing author and I have enjoyed her books a lot!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 11/14/2012

    " Very cute book and an easy read. The characters were easy to understand, and it was lighthearted. A nice break from the usual. There were more religious references than I normally appreciate, but it wasn't overwhelming. Once again, I enjoyed reading the French phrases! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cassie Daniel | 10/9/2012

    " It took awhile for the book to pick up and then it just ended with not much happening in between. "

    " Another fun book. I liked this one better than Let Them Eat Cake and am looking forward to the sequel! "

    " funny wish i had known it was part of a series but i plan to read the next book anyway "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Boothby | 5/11/2011

    " I am enjoying this series. I think Lexi is an interesting heroine and I find myself relating to her. It wasn't a five star for me, but I'm looking forward to book number three. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danni | 9/29/2010

    " I think I have finally found my favorite genre of books. I love culinary books with cool recipes in them. I also like the idea that she seems to cultivate a relationship with God while doing all of her things. It was a very neat read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 8/12/2010

    " This was a quick and enjoyable read, though the constant references to French pastries, breads and desserts about drove me crazy! (with hunger.) Looking forward to reading the next book in the series. "
