Last year about this time I had the pleasure of reading Sandra Byrd’s book, LET THEM EAT CAKE. I’m happy to report that Sandra’s back with a sequel–BON APPETIT. And this book looks absolutely scrumptious!
In this sequel to Let Them Eat Cake, Byrd again entertains with descriptions of delectable food and, this time, with exquisite details of France as well. Foodies will delight in this novel, and anyone who adores romance will warm to the story. It’s easy to identify with Lexi’s struggles in life, because they mirror so much of what everyone experiences, no matter what their age. —Romantic Times
