About the Book
Title: The Key to Love
Author: Betsy St. Amant
Genre: Romance, Christian, Contemporary, Fiction
Synopsis: The only thing Bri Duval loves more than baking petit fours is romance. So much so, she’s created her own version of the famous Parisian lovelock wall at her bakery in Story, Kansas. She never expects it to go viral–or for Trek Magazine to send travel writer Gerard Fortier to feature the bakery. He’s definitely handsome, but Bri has been holding out for a love story like the one her parents had, and that certainly will not include the love-scorned-and-therefore-love-scorning Gerard.
Just when it seems Bri’s bakery is poised for unprecedented success, a series of events threaten not just her business but the pedestal she’s kept her parents on all these years. Maybe Gerard is right about romance. Or maybe Bri’s recipe just needs to be tweaked.
Novelist Betsy St. Amant invites you to experience this sweet story of how love doesn’t always look the way we expect–and maybe that’s a good thing.
First, can I just say that I LOVE this cover? I am honestly not even sure why as pink is not my color. But it pulled me in and made me want to read the book (great job to whoever designed it!). This is my first time reading a book by Betsy St. Amant and it will probably not be the last.
Based on the description I was expecting something a little romance, some yummy desserts, and to learn to see something in the unexpected. I did all of that, just not the way I expected to 😊. I loved Betsy St. Amant’s characters Bri and Gerard were a total opposite attract romance that I thoroughly enjoyed; maybe because it reminds me of my husband and me. But the characters were sweet, sassy, and interesting. They kept me coming back page after page to see what would happen next.
The plot was designed well, a little slow in places, but just when that happened something new would go on that would renew your interest. I liked several of the twists and all the technical yumminess that went on. Plus, the lovelock wall is a cool idea and I hope to visit the real one someday.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars for creative writing, fun characters, and for making me relax for a while.
