Shannon Guymon is another author who is topping my list of favorite “clean” romance authors.
I was excited to see that she had a new series coming out and jumped at the chance to review it. You Belong With Me is the first book in the series and follows three sisters – Layla, Kit and Jane as they start life over as the new owners of their grandmother’s bakery.
The first book focuses mainly on Layla and her developing relationship with Michael. I’m a lover of happily ever after romances so I these books are right up my alley. Things don’t come easily to start but in the end obstacles are overcome to create a happy ending.
Fun, light-hearted and full of delicious desserts the only thing missing was recipes to create the delicious concoctions they baked up. These books should definitely be read in order and you’ll need to read the whole series to be satisfied.
