About the Book
What’s the recipe for a second chance at love?
After six blissful years with scientist boyfriend Owen, Bella Beecham was convinced he was about to pop the question she’d been longing to hear. Instead, he accepted a prestigious job in California and left England without a backwards glance. Now, Owen’s back in the village of Saffron Sweeting, and appears to be more eligible than ever. Bella’s determined that the man of her dreams won’t slip through her fingers again.
But her plans to tone up, trim down, and tempt Owen back into her life prove bittersweet. Although Bella’s talent for baking wins her new friends, her tasty treats have a disconcerting tendency to sabotage her own intentions. And as her increasingly bold attempts to recapture Owen’s heart stumble, Bella must question whether she’s chasing a guy who wants to be caught.
A British romantic comedy featuring both familiar characters and fresh faces, Sweet Pursuits explores how a young woman seeking her soulmate must first learn to love herself.
I have also read Saving Saffron Sweeting from Pauline Wiles, and I was quite pleased to see this release because I enjoyed the first book so much. This romantic comedy is such a quick and cute read. We dive into the story right away and the fast-pace keeps up throughout the whole way. I loved all the foodie talk and how Bella was able to find a way to still love and bake food while trying to watch her weight as she tries to win her ex back. Loved the romance aspects to this story as well and it’s all topped with a super cute cover. I recommend this British rom com!
