Sayingau revoirto the security of home, her job, and could-be boyfriend Dan, Lexi embarks on a culinary adventure in France to fulfill her life dream of becoming a pastry chef. As she settles into her new home in the village ofPresque le Chateauto study and work in a local bakery, her twenty-something optimism meets resistance in the seemingly crusty nature of the people and culture around her. Determined to gain her footing, she finds a church, meets a new friend, and makes the acquaintance of a child named Celine--as well as Celine's attractive, widowed father, Philippe. Even Patricia, the gruff pastry cook, shows a softer side as she mentors Lexi in the art of baking. As Lexi lives her dream, the only thing she has to do is choose from the array in life's patisserie display window: her familiar home, friends, and family in Seattle or her new life in France. Lexi discovers that as she leans more on God the choices become a little clearer-- and making them, well,c'est la vie!

This is actually book 2 in Sandra Byrds French Twist Series following Lexi Stuart. It is an awfully good read on its own but it makes you want to run out and pick up the first book you missed (Let Them Eat Cake) and the third book in the series (Peice de Resisstance). This book makes you want to get up off the couch and move to France and become a pastry chef! The art of french food and french cooking really is something so far away from anything American its sad. But oh so beautifully depicted in this series!
An easy, highly enjoyable read!
