The Key to Love by Betsy St. Amant


The only thing Bri Duval loves more than baking petit fours is romance. So much so, she's created her own version of the famous Parisian lovelock wall at her bakery in Story, Kansas. She never expects it to go viral--or for Trek Magazine to send travel writer Gerard Fortier to feature the bakery. He's definitely handsome, but Bri has been holding out for a love story like the one her parents had, and that certainly will not include the love-scorned-and-therefore-love-scorning Gerard.

Just when it seems Bri's bakery is poised for unprecedented success, a series of events threaten not just her business but the pedestal she's kept her parents on all these years. Maybe Gerard is right about romance. Or maybe Bri's recipe just needs to be tweaked.

Novelist Betsy St. Amant invites you to experience this sweet story of how love doesn't always look the way we expect--and maybe that's a good thing.

My Review

Boy meets girl and sparks fly, not here, they meet and you can feel the negative tension in the air. This was not a warm and fuzzy read, it actually was a rather hard to get through for me.
The title refers to the love connections with locks on a fence, and that is nice, but the story did drag. Of course there is a person who wants it all gone, the fence and the bakery.
Come and visit Bri, Gerard, and the Aunts, along with Charles!
Hang on, the ending does get better and some of the answers come, not always what we want, but it does have a sweet ending, and more baking.

I received this book through NetGalley and the Publisher Revell, and was not required to give a positive review.
