If you want to escape the real world for a few hours, dive in. Jan 17, Nola Arganbright rated it really liked it Shelves: A very good book. I look forward to reading the next edition of this series. I made a connection with Star from the very beginning of the book. She had such a desire to use her baking expertise to open a Pastry Shop. I also worked in a neighborhood restaurant and used my gift of baking to add Cinnamon rolls to the menu.
I was able to identify with her joy of creating new recipes and sharing her cooking gift to bring joy to others. The other characters were pivotal pieces to the story. Ty her co A very good book. Ty her co worker and supportive friend added light moments to the story and smoothed the road for much of the story. Charlie and Wanda, Ash, Gran and the patrons of the restaurant were so small town characters that I found my thoughts drifting to patrons of the small restaurant that I worked in.

This book will not disappoint, and is perfect for a great summer read! Unaware that this was more a YA book than a book for grown-ups, who generally need a more substance to their stories, I started "One Summer Unfortunately, the level of naivete and guilelessness wasn't doing it for me.
Don't get me wrong, this is a perfectly lovely story if you are between 16 and 21, but I expect so much more when I want to escape in storytelling. Furthermore, I've never been to Florida, but I looked up images for Daytona Beach and that place looks so crowde Unaware that this was more a YA book than a book for grown-ups, who generally need a more substance to their stories, I started "One Summer Furthermore, I've never been to Florida, but I looked up images for Daytona Beach and that place looks so crowded and big, it's not a feel that inspired me.
Overall, a miss for me, but surely a wonderful read, with pretty decent characters too boot, for a younger audience. Feb 25, Gari rated it did not like it. Don't waste your time What a bad, stupid book! The characters are immature and one dimensional. Lots of spelling errors. Stupid statements, such as He's her employer, he should know her name.
Eggs don't have yokes, they have yolks.

The ending was good with a mystery added. Feb 10, Elaine Komatsu rated it liked it. Sweet, wholesome story with likeable characters. The story was sweet and well written and edited. All the main characters were interesting, wholesome and likeable. Easy to read and follow the storyline. Nice flow to the story. Probably more suitable for teens and young adults who enjoy fairytale romance stories. May 20, Sheila Penwell rated it really liked it. I liked this book and its characters. The main character Star was having a rough time of it but going through many disappointments from the people she met until the ending.
Which was not the ending I expected. The story also showed how crossing the path with people in your life means and and fortunate this happened to be.
