The only thing Bri Duval loves more than baking petit fours is romance. So much so, she’s created her own version of the famous Parisian lovelock wall at her bakery in Story, Kansas. She never expects it to go viral–or for Trek Magazine to send travel writer Gerard Fortier to feature the bakery. He’s definitely handsome, but Bri has been holding out for a love story like the one her parents had, and that certainly will not include the love-scorned-and-therefore-love-scorning Gerard.
Just when it seems Bri’s bakery is poised for unprecedented success, a series of events threaten not just her business but the pedestal she’s kept her parents on all these years. Maybe Gerard is right about romance. Or maybe Bri’s recipe just needs to be tweaked.
Novelist Betsy St. Amant invites you to experience this sweet story of how love doesn’t always look the way we expect–and maybe that’s a good thing.
The Key to Love by Besty St. Amant is a fun contemporary romance novel. I instantly loved Bri and Gerald. Each one had their own troubles to fix plus, the relationship they are blossoming into as well. A baker who is kind to all and a writer who has to be right all the time is a crazy mix. Yet, they work. The story is about finding themselves, moving beyond their fears, and finding their strength. I was easily able to sympathize and connect with each of the main characters. They also had to find the key to love. Without it, each of them was lost, anger, and afraid. The novel was charming, addictive, and sweet.
