Lexi Stuart is at a critical crossroads. She’s done with college but still living at home, ready to launch a career but unable to find a job, and solidly stalled between boyfriends. When a lighthearted conversation in French with the manager of her favorite bakery turns into a job offer, Lexi accepts. But the actual glamour is minimal: the pay is less than generous, her co-workers are skeptical, her bank account remains vertically-challenged, and her parents are perpetually disappointed. Her only comfort comes from the flirtatious baker she has her eye–but even may not be who he seems to be! So when a handsome young executive dashes into the bakery to pick up his high profile company’s special order for an important meeting–an order Lexi has flubbed– she loses her compulsion to please. “What am I going to do?” he shouts. “Let them eat cake!” she fires back with equal passion and a nod to Marie Antoinette. And then, something inside Lexi clicks. Laissez la révolution commencer! Let the revolution begin! Instead of trying to fulfill everyone else’s expectations for her life, Lexi embarks on an adventure in trusting God with her future–très bon!… (mere)

No HEA until book 3! I really liked this series. A young woman is trying to figure out her life, trying to meet her parents expectations, her own wants, while trying to get a job she does not hate and finding a place to live. Life! Along the way she finds opportunities, new friends, an exciting chance to go to France, and a way to deal with all the options. She keeps having to make decisions, she makes mistakes, and there are no easy options. How do you know which way is the right one? This story is fun if you like food, cakes, French, and want to find God's guidance in your life as well. ( )

I finally got a chance to read the first book of Sandra Byrd's French series. It's worth the read. It really helps explain how things got started because I read the second book earlier when it was offered as a freebie. (Normally I prefer to start a series with the very first one, but it's hard to pass up a freebie!) It's good!

That's all of a summary that this cute book deserves?! I couldn't believe that's all there was to the Shelfari summary.

Allow me to elaborate: Lexi is a French major from a good university who can't seem to hold a job; lives with her parents who just sold their house; her brother is a successful attorney who is marrying another successful attorney; she just signed a lease on an apartment she can't afford; and, she has a crush on her engaged boss at a French pastry shop. What's not to love?!

Oh, yes...and she is trying to find her way to God. She doesn't want her grandmother's faith, doesn't want her mother's faith, but wants to find her own relationship with God and what He wants for her.

Cutely written, but a bit sophomoric at times, this is a nice, light beach-read. Interspersed in the pages are recipes, notes, forms and ice-breaker games, making the journey from page 1 to page 310 an easy one. This is the first in a series of three, and I will probably add the next one to my list. I'm curious as to what Lexi will do next!

I downloaded this Kindle book as a freebie onto my phone, and was 1/4 to 1/3 of the way through before I realized it was Christian fiction. The references to the Bible (included quoted verses), prayer, and church attendance increased, the farther I got into the book. If I'd known, I might not have downloaded the book, or at least wouldn't have been surprised by it.

The story, by itself, was a bit predictable, but was an interesting enough read to finish. I liked the references to France, the French language, and French cooking.

It was a quick read, partly because I skimmed the religious parts when I came to them, but it was good enough to finish. ( )

Wonderful, wonderful 3 book series. I have the paperback, also.
