The Icing on the Cake by Janice Thompson

The Icing on the Cake (Weddings by Design #2)Book Description:
Scarlet Lindsey’s aunt Wilhelmina may be Texas’s most popular cake baker extraordinaire, but she’s also getting on in years. When Scarlet decides to take on the role of cake decorator at her cranky aunt’s bidding, it’s just the beginning of a series of misunderstandings and mishaps that will lead her to compete in a cake challenge on national television-and might even lead her to finding true love.
Fan favorite Janice Thompson is back with more wit, more weddings, and more of what her readers love best-bridal business drama. Bella and the gang are all here and readers will fall in love with the newest quirky characters straight from the creative mind of a fantastic storyteller.

My Thoughts:
Adored this book.  Scarlet's business has never been better.  She has a prime location, is well connected, and is exceptionally talented.  Her love life is a different story.  She knows her assistant likes her but she doesn't see him that way.  Then her best friend's brother Armando comes into her life and she has some decisions to make.
Scarlet was a real character.  She had real problems, real ups and downs, and real feelings.  I could relate to pretty much everything and it made her such a joy to read about.  I wasn't certain if she was going to go with the Italian hunk or the 'safe' guy so that mystery was fun.  Her aunt and best friend also added an air of reality to the story because everyone has those types of family members and some are blessed to have that close of friends.  Second in the series but can be read as a stand alone book.
I rate this a 5/5.  I can't wait for the next in this series!
