Bon Appetit by Sandra Byrd Giveaway!


Take a look at this book and let me know if you want to win a copy in comments! US and Canadian addresses only. I'll email winners in about a week.

Book Summary: In this second book in the French Twist series, readers join Lexi Stuart in a crème de la crème adventure!

Deciding to leave her familiar home in Seattle and her could-be boyfriend Dan, Lexi moves to a quaint village in France to pursue her dream of becoming a pastry chef. Life among the French initially proves to be less than easy as Lexi is challenged by her coworkers, missing her friends, and failing to master the perfect baguette.

Determined to find her place, Lexi settles into the culture and life becomes la perfection. 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.

Fast, fun, and packed with French culture, foodie appeal, and unique recipes readers will love accompanying Lexi on her journey in Bon Appetit as she tries to choose between two countries, two men and the faith to lean on God while savoring the surprises life brings!

Bread baking is hard, period. Learning the perfect baguette, that is a toil. I'm curious to see what the first book was about as well. Thanks!

Amy,
Here I was series-less and now I keep finding books I want to read (and win) that have a book or two out prior the current book and I hate reading backwards in a series.....kind of like do you order the samething or branch out, eh? Anways, so if I'm lucky enough to win, I'll dutifully read the prior book first!
Thank you Amy
Oh and PS.....I love the cover and features of the new "Ill. Bible", too!!!!
