About Taste of Memory
A baker, a pyrotechnician, and a truly magical romance.
Sweet contemporary romance with a hint of magic.
If only baker Keira Covington had an ounce of her family’s legendary magic. Desperate to prove she should inherit the Sweet Memories Café when her aunt retires, Keira is pretty sure that burning half the customers’ orders and mixing up the rest is a terrible recipe for a successful business. It doesn’t help when a handsome biker rides into town, distracting her from her work.
On his bucket-list vacation through New England, pyrotechnician Brant Whitbeck can’t seem to leave Hawthorne. Literally. The town won’t let him go. Not that he’s going to complain when it offers him a job, sweet treats, and a woman who makes sparks fly between them.
When Keira stumbles upon an ancestor’s special scone recipe and the unexpected starts to happen, someone double-crosses her and it has to be him. Will their burgeoning romance explode like a firecracker lit too soon or will the chemistry between them fizzle and fade?
I loved the magic of this book by Maria Hoagland and Lorin Grace! The authors did such a great job with that element. This book is set around the holidays, from Halloween until around New Year’s. That was a lot of fun!
Keira is a baker. She works with her aunt Ginger in her diner. Hoping that eventually it will be hers. I loved the way she grows and finds her magic through this story. Her great-grandmother had some magic. So when she found her recipe for special scones, her magic grew. I really loved the idea of those scones that tasted different to everyone. The magic she found helped Brant and those around her.
Brant is a pyrotechnician getting the town of Hawthorne ready for their annual New Year’s Eve celebration. It was interesting to me how Brant didn’t have many memories of growing up. But as he ate Keira’s special scones, he remembered things. Making his life better.
I loved watching these two fall in love. Their story was sweet. And filled with so many special touches. I’m hoping for more in this series.
I was sent an e-copy of Taste of Memory as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
