I've got a sweet little giveaway for you today - Sweet Nothings by Janis Thomas.
From Berkley Books:
"Life’s sweetest moments happen when you least expect
them . . .
When Ruby McMillan’s husband announces one morning that
he’s dumping her for another woman, she’s unable to decide which indignity
stings the most: the dissolution of their eighteen-year marriage or the
deflation of her white-chocolate soufflé with raspberry Grand Marnier sauce.
Without a good-bye to their two teenaged children, Walter leaves Ruby to cope
with her ruined dessert, an unpaid mortgage, and her failing
With only royal icing holding her together, Ruby still manages
to pick herself up and move on, subsidizing her income with an extra job as a
baking instructor, getting a “my-husband’s-gone” makeover, and even flirting
with her gorgeous mortgage broker, Jacob Salt. For as long as she can remember,
Ruby has done what’s practical, eschewing far-fetched dreams and true love in
favor of stability. But suddenly single again at the age of forty-four, she’s
beginning to discover that life is most delicious when you stop following a
recipe and just live." Read an excerpt of Sweet Nothings.
