Book Review: A City Baker's Guide to Country Living

The City Baker's Guide to Country Living by Louise Miller // This fiction book revolves around Olivia Rawlings, a pastry chef from an exclusive Boston dinner club. After a fire engulfs the club, she decides to escape to the town her best friend, Hannah, lives in - Guthrie, Vermont. It isn't long before the owner of a local inn offers Olivia a job with the hopes that her new pastry chef will be able to help her reclaim the inn's blue ribbon status at the annual county fair apple pie contest (helloooo small towns in America - I absolutely love it!). Before she knows it, Olivia has settled into small town life.

I thought this book was a delight! The characters were well crafted, the description of the treats and sweets Olivia whipped up could make anyone's mouth water. As someone who grew up in a small, country town, I especially loved how the author painted country living. :)

I listened to this book on audio book for my long commutes to work. The person reading the book had a pleasant voice, but it was a hard transition to move to this audio book from the Harry Potter books read by Jim Dale (he has such a great voice!) .
