- Bad Time To Diet by Maureen on 8/19/13
Back with some beloved friends, and making some new life friends. We are back with Club Wed, and following the wedding from the last book Wedding Perfect. Hannah is getting ready to marry Drew, and Scarlet Lindsey is her maid of honor. She is also making the cakes for the wedding, both the brides and grooms cake.
Bella who runs Club Wed, has a brother, who doesn't fit in with the rest of the family, Armando, but when a family crisis happens he comes to the rescue. He ends up next door to Scarlet's new bakery, running the family pizza shop.
Be ready for some more family emergencies, and for Aunt Willy's arrival in the picture. There are some really funny happenings, and some very unexpected things. Maybe we will learn the secret family recipe, under lock and key? The Italian Cream Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting...I want a piece!!
In between running the bakery, and doing a TV contest, she is committed to helping her Dad run a show to raise money for the kids in their church to go to Guatemala. She is one busy girl, and with all of this she decides to diet?? Funny!!
Sit down for a cozy and great read, you will not be getting back up until you are finished. Enjoy!!
I received this book through the Revell's Blogger's Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
- Yummy Novel by Smiling Sally on 8/19/13
I love the characters that Janice Thompson creates. Boy, do I connect with Scarlet, the main protagonist in this novel. She is the first overweight female I've "met" through reading. Poor thing, Scarlet feels self-conscious about her abundant backside--her "sticky buns," a thoughtless nickname her Aunt Wilhelmina gave her long ago. To further complicate things, Scarlet owns and operates a bakery named, "Let Them Eat Cake" which is financed by the same Auntie, who makes a habit of popping in often to offer her advice.
Scarlet's love interest, Armando Rossi, doesn't notice her (ahem) thickness. In fact, he seems to think she looks just fine. He's an Italian bad boy who has come home to temporarily work in the family business--Parma John's Pizzeria, located next door to the bakery.
I learned about the business of running a bakery, a bake-off competition for a national television show (as in Food Network), and the work involved with raising money for a mission trip. Included is a recipe for an Italian Wedding Cake that I plan to try, even though I know my "sticky buns" will surely expand!
I recommend reading the first book in the Weddings by Design series Picture Perfect. Nonetheless, Icing on the Cake is a delightful stand-alone novel and certainly can be enjoyed without reading any other.
