    Awesome

    This is an awesome sweet read that is filled with emotion. The last person Matthew West expects to see in Marietta is Carolyn Henderson. Yet here she is in his veterinarian office with an unruly dog and a little girl that is the sweetest thing Matt has ever seen. Carolyn was his high school sweetheart but she broke his heart on graduation day when she let him know he wasn't enough to keep her in Marietta. She had plans and didn't look back when she left town. They may never be close again but they each have something the other needs. Striking a deal to help each other out has them spending a lot of time together. Will they be able to walk away from each other again? I highly recommend this one.

    Puppies and cookies make a great combo

    Carolyn Henderson is a career-driven chef, focused on achieving her dreams with no desire to settle down and have a family. When her sister and brother-in-law die in a car crash, she is stunned to discover that her sister made her guardian to her 4-year-old niece, Emma. Returning to Marietta so that she can figure out her future she runs into her old flame and current town vet, Matthew West. He is the embodiment of what she left behind when she moved to New York all those years ago; home, family, the one person who you belong to and who belongs to you. When behavioral issues with her niece's dog arise she cuts Matthew a deal he can not refuse. Train the dog in exchange for baking lessons to help him win the Bachelor Bake-off. For Matthew, Carolyn is the one that got away. Worse still he let her go so that she could live her dream. But now he realizes that he cannot make the same decision again. And Carolyn is slowly discovering the reason why her sister chose her to raise Emma. I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from the Publisher via NetGalley for voluntary review consideration.

    good

    A Teaspoon of Trouble is a second chance love story. Is a heart broking story about lost grief and finding a way to live with that lost and be happy again. Carolyn is back in her family town because she has a life changing decision to make. Her nieces dog is responsible that she connects with her old love Matthew. They made a compromise him to fix a dog and she to teach him how to cook. It is interesting story between interesting characters. Matthew seems so much older and wiser than Carolyn. She on the other hand when things get tough runs away. So what will she do this time? I was not practically fan of her because she was a little bit frustrating. So it was good to see -with help of Matthew of course- the peals to fall down from her soul and when she accepts her family, her home town and love from Matthew. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly

    A Recipe of Love

    A delightful read of a second chance romance. Carolyn thought she was living her dream in New York as a chef when a family tragedy happens and she has to return home to Marietta. Not in her plans of having a four year old, Emma and Roscoe, a not well mannered dog. Carolyn's high school boyfriend, Matt is the town vet and has entered the Bachelor Bake Off, he has asked Carolyn for help. Matt has never stopped loving Carolyn, now if he can only get her to see this where her heart really belongs. Ms. Jump has packed this book with plenty of emotions that will keep you turning the pages. How can you not fall in love with this book, a puppy, a little girl and a handsome town vet, who is learning to bake. This is the first book in Bachelor Bake Off series, can't wait for more. I highly recommend this book.

    Second Chance at Life

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading A Teaspoon of Trouble by Shirley Jump, the first entry in the Bachelor Bake-Off series despite is making me cry. This is another wonderful collaboration of authors, created by Tule Publishing. The Bachelor Bake-Off is a fund raiser by the town to buy a rundown house in Marietta and refurbish in the memory of firefighter Harry Morgan as a teen center. Each of the bachelors entered into this “contest” are not cooks. In this story, Caroline Henderson, a type-A cook, returns to her parents’ home in Marietta, Montana with her young niece Emma and Emma’s unruly puppy. They had just lost Emma’s parents in a car crash and Caroline was named guardian. The entire family is struggling with their grief and Caroline has no idea how she will be able to return to her highly demanding job in Manhattan with Emma and be able to be the parent Emma deserves. I was truly able to relate to Caroline as I had unexpectedly loss my sister a couple of years ago. Although I’m not a guardian to my adult niece, she knows my family is there for her and that I am a surrogate mom for her. When Caroline left ten years prior she broke the heart of Matt West her high school sweetheart. Matt has become the town veterinarian, taking care of the pets and animals of the residents of Marietta, a town he loves. He has also been entered into the first Bachelor bake-Off when he doesn’t know how to cook. When Caroline brings in Emma’s dog the two reconnect. These two make a deal; dog training lessons for cooking lessons. Both are stubborn and hard headed as they try to make sense of this second chance they have. This was a sweet, fun and entertaining story with very likeable and authentic characters that you want to cheer on, hoping for that happy ending. The characters were well written with complex characteristics. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I am truly looking forward to the next entry in the Bachelor Bake-Off series. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
