Since her mother needs her to be close, she throws herself into creating a little bit of France in Infinity by opening her cupcake shop there. However, in spite of her best efforts and intentions, she is shunned, harassed, threatened, vandalized, sabotaged, and in all ways vilified, by the town folk who want to drive her away. Her money is exhausted and so are her spirits. Just then things seem to be turning around--and then they are not. The reader struggles with Liddy to figure out who is doing what and why. Fun and engaging plot.
Liddy is likeable and optimist-even when circumstances don't give her much to be cheerful about. How could so many people hate her for so little reason!...I enjoyed Liddy as a main character because she was indeed middle-aged and facing real problems other than whether or not someone loves her. A few short, steamy sex scenes are minor part of the plot and can easily be skipped over if reader so desires. I enjoyed Liddy's travails and triumphs and can happily recommend the book for those who enjoy romantic suspense.
I received a review copy from the author, but the thoughts and opinions are solely my own.
