Layla Kendall is the oldest of three sisters. She's a burned out social worker one step away from a major depression and she needs a fresh start. When she and her sisters Kit and Jane inherit their grandmother's bakery, she doesn't know if she can trust her good fortune or not. Life has taught her that happiness is just an illusion. But the chance to be with her sisters and get away from the heart ache and pain she's faced day in and day out is a chance she's going to take. The fact that they don't know anything about running a bakery won't stop them. With Layla's new life, come new connections and friendships including Michael Bender, a single dad and someone who wouldn't mind getting to know Layla better. She doesn't trust men and she doesn't want to change her mind but Michael's little girl Stella grabs her by the heart and won't let go. When Layla and her sisters realize that there are people who want to see them fail, it will take a lot of heart and courage to keep going. Layla will have to let go of the past in order to grab onto the future if she'll ever find the love she needs.

My Thoughts:

This is one book I am glad to have picked up. The story is a great one, and while I expected a happier ending for Layla and Michael, I am so happy with the way it turned out and the way the author threw in the twists and turns.
Can't wait to get my hands on books 2 and 3!

Highlighted Quotes:

We don’t have to keep the pattern just because we were born into it, you know? Why not break free? Why not believe that we can pick our own happy endings?

You’re tough Layla, but you’re wounded. You've been hurt one too many times. You've seen too much and you've bled out inside. If someone doesn't start looking out for you, there won’t be anything left.
