Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mary Simses can write evocative detail that puts you right in the scene; dialogue that always rings true.” James Patterson
“Basic ingredients, well mixed-and good to the last crumb.” Good Housekeeping
“Simses’…depictions of the charming qualities of small town life, the healing abilities of comfort food, and the redemptive power of love will win the hearts of readers, as will the subtle sprinkling of humor and intrigue. Fans of Nicholas Sparks, or even the romantic offerings of James Patterson, will approve.” Examiner (London)
“Delightful…Simses has crafted a wholesome love story, infused with the pull and tug of romance and elements of mystery and enhanced by humble, low-key themes and conflicts.” Shelf Awareness
“This charming, tender first novel emphasizes the power of simple pleasures, comfort food, and undeniable chemistry…Simses’ story of emotional discoveries, shifting priorities, and new beginnings is a delightful beach read.” Booklist
