A fiction debut that will
leave you wanting seconds, from an award-winning cookbook author
Claire “Neely” O’Neil is a
pastry chef of extraordinary talent. Every great chef can taste shimmering,
elusive flavors that most of us miss, but Neely can “taste” feelings—cinnamon
makes you remember, plum is pleased with itself, orange is a wake-up call. When
flavor and feeling give Neely a glimpse of someone’s inner self, she can
customize her creations to help that person celebrate love, overcome fear, even
mourn a devastating loss.
Maybe that’s why she feels
the need to go home to Millcreek Valley at a time when her life seems about to
fall apart. The bakery she opens in her hometown is perfect, intimate, just
what she’s always dreamed of—and yet, as she meets her new customers, Neely has
a sense of secrets, some dark, some perhaps with tempting possibilities. A
recurring flavor of alarming intensity signals to her perfect palate a long-ago
story that must be told.
Neely has always been able
to help everyone else. Getting to the end of this story may be just what she
needs to help herself. Download and start listening now!
