Overview

"Exceptionally entertaining and wonderfully original" (Chicago Tribune), Beth Kendrick delivers a funny story about family, self- discovery, and the pursuit of the perfect pie crust.

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 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 more complicated than brownie mix, but it's just pie-how hard could it be?

This was a quick read. It was a fun little story about sisters and baking. It starts a little slow in the beginning , but the story moves faster as you continue reading. Great Book!

I love baking so this was a no brainer for me. And I've read Beth Kendrick in the past and enjoyed her writing. I was not disappointed. This story about sisters, about the sometimes difficult dynamics within a family...all of that touches us at some point in our lives. And how we perceive things differently as we get older, realizing our priorities in life. Beth Kendrick explores all of this in a light, easy read. I finished this novel in between running to the kitchen removing my baking sheets from the oven. I don't believe I've ever even tried to make pie crust, but I might try now!
