Emily Barnes is a baker. She likes things measured and timed. She knew she was taking a risk when she sent her rent money to her sister, but that's what you do when someone you love needs your help. Now, without an apartment that she needs to run her home based muffin business, she's faced with a choice. Couch surfing, separated by very thin walls, and her very loud best friends, or house sitting an otherwise empty Upper East Side luxury apartment overlooking Central Park. Obviously it's a no brainer for this smart cookie.
To an outside it would appear that Declan Hayes has it all; more money than he can spend in a lifetime, every female, available or otherwise, in New York City vying for his attention, parents who are considered the "it" couple amongst the who's who of the city, and brains that are almost as highly rated as his looks. To the outside world his life was perfect, but from his perspective, his life was an out of focus blur.
Declan is used to people asking things of him and saying no, but for Maggie, his parent's cook and house keeper, he would do just about anything, including going over to his parent's apartment to check on her pseudo niece who is staying there. His plan was to get in and get out, but the second he saw her in that itty bitty outfit singing and dancing around the normally cold and dismal place he never thought of as home, something changed. Something about her sparked the place to life. She for once made it warm and inviting. He finally understood the phrase "there's no place like home". She became his focus.
Can Emily and Declan trust the timing of their lives or adjust the angle of the lens from which they see their lives?
Will hope, faith, trust and ...? Love?
Will these things be enough for Emily and Declan to get the one thing they both never thought they needed in life?
It's a good thing they are "Floured" because life is about to get sticky.
This is Lane Martin's debut novel and Book #1 in the A Recipe for Love series. Due to explicit content, Floured is recommended for mature readers.
