Icing on the Cake...Review

About the book:
Scarlet isn't sure if she has just the right ingredients for true love--or utter disaster.

Scarlet Lindsey is busy making her dreams come true. She's moved her bakery to a prime spot on Galveston's most popular street, she's planning an extravagant cake for her best friend's wedding, and she has a great relationship with Bella Neeley, the island's most popular wedding coordinator. Business is booming and Scarlet is enjoying the ride.

But when Bella's dangerously handsome brother Armando breezes into her life, Scarlet is faced with a sticky situation. Should she stay with the safe, sweet guy who's been a fixture in her life for years? Or will this brash Italian hunk melt her guarded heart?

Fan favorite Janice Thompson is back with more wit, more weddings, and more of what you love best--bridal-business drama laced with laughs.

Scarlet wants nothing more than to be the premier baker and cake designer on Galveston Island.  Having the support of Bella Neeley, popular wedding coordinator means even more business and when she is given the chance to compete in a cake decorating show on television, even more publicity awaits.

I loved Scarlet.  I could relate to her in so many ways with her insecurities about her size and self image.  I loved Armando and how he loved Scarlet just the way she was.

Like any Janice Thompson novel, the repartee is sharp, the heroines spunky and fun, the heroes dashing and the extended family loud and supportive.

I adore Janice Thompson's writing, her books and her characters.  Icing on the Cake is delicious.

A sequel to Picture Perfect, the story stands alone just fine, even as many of your favorite characters from the Weddings by Bella series return.

Thanks to Lanette from Baker Publishing for the opportunity to review this book.  You can learn more about Janice Thompson here.  You can purchase your own copy here.
