Review: Sweet Expectations by Mary Ellen Taylor

Sweet Expectations
by Mary Ellen Taylor

Publisher: Berkley
Pages: 345
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Daisy McCrae knows that change can be sudden—and devastating. And while it doesn’t have to be a bad thing, change has the power to turn your whole world upside down....

Running the family bakery and living in the store’s attic might not be Daisy’s dream life, but she’s beginning to understand what being content feels like. And then she gets some unexpected news. In one moment, Daisy’s calm existence turns into chaos. Now she’s struggling to keep it together, especially with renovations at the bakery spiraling out of control.

But when a box of recipes and mementos is found hidden behind a wall in the bakery, Daisy suddenly has something to cling to—a mystery that echoes her own troubles and gives her the opportunity to figure out what she really wants out of life....

Kritters Thoughts:  The second in a series that takes place just moments from my house in Alexandria, VA.  The reader returns to the bakery to continue the story with the three sisters, Margaret, Rachel and Daisy.  It continues the story right where it left off, so don't miss the first one to set the foundation for the stories to come.

As I am so glad that the synopsis didn't completely bust the twist that does happen at the beginning, but is really enjoyable when you experience it in the story and not on the cover!  So this review may be short, but I just can't spoil the goodness in it!

My favorite part about this particular book in the series was how they incorporated the historical digging into Alexandria.  There is so much history in this small city and I loved whether it is true or not, the history they dig up in the small city and I feel like there is truth behind it as in these small cities families are freakishly connected!

There are already four books in this series and Thursday and Friday I will review the final two in this series that are already here.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
