Mom and Apple Pie

The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living by Louise Miller is a recent release which is lip-smacking good! I was pleasantly surprised by this inaugural novel written by a Boston pastry chef.

It is the story of a thirty-something pastry chef who finds employment in a Vermont country inn after leaving her job in a restaurant in Boston. Olivia is accomplished in her field, but her love life is another story.

Feeling like a fish out of water, she finds herself seduced by the country life and folk – one man in particular named Martin who wants to leave the dirt of country roads far behind him.

This engaging story is full of believable characters and music, but what I really enjoyed were the vivid descriptions of food! The book ends with a recipe for apple pie. I may give it a try one day! My recommendation for this novel is a comfortable reading spot, a pot of tea, and a warm piece of pastry! Enjoy!
