Image of Sweet Love

Strohmeyer offers first-class wit, emotional depth and great fun in her latest tale. A great balance of the sweet and sassy, this story about family and rekindling lost love expertly melds frequent funnybone-tickling moments and heart-rending drama. Endearing characters and a heroine readers will cheer for round out the vividly drawn cast. When laugh-out-loud meets sinfully, decadent sweets, there'll be no guilt in this pleasure.

Betty Mueller decides that since her daughter Julie isn't making all the right moves in the love department, she should step in -- using the one thing her stubborn daughter has a weakness for: dessert. After signing her up for dessert classes with Julie's one true love, she hopes the sparks will reignite and correct a wrong made long ago. Little does Julie know that finding a soul mate and sharing a mother's love may be as easy as peach cobbler D'Ours. (DUTTON, Jun., 320 pp., $24.95)
