Review; A Gingerbread Romance by Lacey Baker
Description from Goodreads
Nothing could be sweeter
than knowing your heart is at home…
Taylor’s architectural firm enters her in a contest in which the teams will design and build life sized gingerbread houses. After the contest, Taylor will likely be getting a promotion to a position in another city. But Taylor’s original partner soon backs out, and she needs to find a replacement.
When she meets Adam, a baker and single dad, at a local bakery, she convinces him to partner with her for the contest. After all, winning would give the bakery and his designs much needed exposure.
For years Taylor has been resistant to call anywhere “home” for fear it would only be temporary. But the time she spends with Adam and his daughter Brook in their cozy home, decorating for Christmas, and enjoying Philadelphia’s holiday traditions, fills her with a longing for a place to call her own.
My Thoughts on the BookIf one is in search of a cheesy holiday romance, this book covers it pretty much. I liked the slowburning romance in A Gingerbread Romance, but it was still a predictable read. A pet peeve of mine was Taylor's need to be right and in control, especially considering she admits she's clueless about baking. On a positive note, I liked the theme of the importance of family and having something that feels like a "home".
