Coffee and a Beagle: Sweetlin Bakery Series Vol 1 Christian boxed set (Sweetlin Bakery Boxset) Kindle Edition
An Amazon Book with Buzz: "Thirteen"
"A dead bang BEAST of a book that expertly combines Cavanagh’s authority on the law with an absolutely great thrill ride. Books this ingenious don’t come along very often." ―Michael Connelly Learn more

Mona flees an unwanted engagement and shady business deals; in her new, independent life, she meets and loves Emmett, who shares her dream of a bakery job.
Best bits: Not bad characterization for a short story.
Issues: Why is the prologue not just chapter 1? Some errors, such as missing commas. Lots of lengthy, explanatory paragraphs rather than action, especially at the beginning. Following God's plan and listening to that "inner check" are mentioned often, but Christian themes are mostly subtle/implied.
4 stars: Coffee and a Beagle
Jayna keeps everything ultra-organized, including her life plans, until Trent's dog Max knocks her into a fountain.
Best bits: These characters I can picture so clearly! Uptight, rigidly controlled Jayna in her scheduled, planned, business-suited armor with her creative, colorful, dreamy child is stifled inside. And relaxed, informal, happy Trent, who not only lives at peace, but wants others to do so, as well. Love them! Major theme of not needing to be perfect to please God, and how trying to be perfect in an attempt to buy God's love can hurt you. The damage was done by Christians with a flawed understanding of God, which also struck me as powerful. A good portrait of both sides of that particular Christian coin.
Issues: A large handful of fairly major typos. Most of the book is told from Jayna's perspective, with just a few bits from Trent. I'd prefer it either consistently trade back and forth, or stick with just her. Very quick relationship (about a week from meeting to engaged?).
4 stars: Sugar, Spice, and Other Sassy Things
Cheerful, curious Mila makes it a goal to cheer up grumpy artist Austin and help him regain mobility.
Best bits: Again, great characterization. Mila's curiosity and open cheer make a good match for Austin's brooding, pessimistic nature. They bring out good things in each other, and them teasing each other is fun to read. Major theme of not seeing bad things that happen as punishments from God, and listening for what God is actually saying instead of waiting for the next shoe to drop.
Issues: Quite a few typos. Once the POV changed from Austin to Mila to Austin in the same scene without section breaks. The rest of the POV shifts were more standard.
