Sweet and wise, but also laugh-out-loud funny at times, Wiggs' latest boasts a multilayered plot and a crowd of one-of-a-kind characters. Even non-bakers may be tempted to try the recipes sprinkled liberally throughout.

Grief-stricken over the
recent death of the grandmother
who raised her, columnist Jenny Majesky is suffering from panic
attacks and insomnia when the
family home burns to the ground. Losing everything except the bakery
she inherited -- and being taken
in by Sheriff Rourke McKnight --
gives Jenny new focus.

She and Rourke have a long,
rocky history, and sharing space
may force them -- finally -- to face their feelings for each other, to the delight of the whole town. But Jenny
has other issues to deal with: She recently discovered who her father
is and is getting to know him and
the sister she didn't know she had.

And then there's Jenny's dream of
writing a book, which she's had
since childhood, and which her
new family may be able to help
her realize. (MIRA, Feb., 416 pp., $7.99)
