Goodreads:  Bakeshop owner Emma Stevens has a secret. A delicious premonition she shares every Monday evening with the bachelors of Buttermilk Falls as they gather at the Sugar Spoon bakery for Batter Up night.

Investigative reporter Jason Levine just found himself as the man candy for a bachelorette party in Las Vegas. Roped into attending the Vegas nuptials, was he hearing things when the groom shares that the only reason he’s getting married is because a small town baker conjured up the name of his soulmate in her cake batter?

Sparks fly when Jason tries to expose Emma as a fraud, but reality and logic go out the window as he begins to fall under her spell.

Kritters Thoughts:  A sweet little romance that I didn't completely love, but mostly loved!  I will explain. . . 

Emma Stevens owns an interesting little bakery in a small town in upstate NY.  On Monday nights the local bachelors come to her store to get revealed their true love and Emma has quite the matchmaking record.  A reporter comes to know about this interesting thing happening and decides to go make a story of it.  

For me, I wish the author had a few more pages to make the story flow better.  I felt as though we go from Jason and Emma meeting and having one encounter to a full on romantic episode and I wish there had been more build up to get us to the point that it did.  

I loved the concept of the book and most of the plot, it just didn't completely work for me.  The characters were great, I wanted more of a complete story arch for them.    

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
