"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. (Button courtesy of Bewitched Bookworms.)
Here's what I'm looking forward to:
Title: The Bake-Off
Author: Beth Kendrick
Release Date: May 3
From the author's website:
Suburban soccer mom Amy has always wanted to stand out from the crowd. Former child prodigy Linnie just wants to fit in. The two sisters have been estranged for years, but thanks to a series of personal crises and their wily grandmother, they've teamed up to enter a high-stakes national bake-off in the hopes of winning some serious cash. Armed with the top-secret recipe for Grammy’s apple pie, they should be unstoppable. Sure, neither one of them has ever baked anything beyond brownie mix, but it’s just pie—how hard could it be?!
When the competition heats up, what begins as a straightforward pact for victory deteriorates into a sugar-coated free-for-all. Amy and Linnie struggle to rebuild their relationship as family secrets, old betrayals and new romances enter into the mix. Given the right recipe and an unexpected blend of bitter and sweet, even the oddest pairings can produce something delicious.
