In her debut novel, Heartbreak Cake, author Cindy Arora weaves a delightfully sinful chick lit story that is full of romance, heartbreak, hope, friendship, self-discovery, and to-die-for yummy desserts! Set in the seaside community of Long Beach, California, and told in the first person narrative, sassy Indira Aguilar, a pasty chef and co-owner of Cake Pan Bakeshoppe, takes the reader on a sugar filled journey as she recovers from breaking off a four year secret affair with Josh Oliver, a married director of the food and beverage department at the ritzy Crystal Cove Resort. Tired of being someone's secret mistress, an option and not a priority, and settling for crumbs, Indira decides to stop wasting her time on empty promises and move on with her life. A little heartbreak cake and a sexy guest chef at Crystal Cove named Noah Cavatelli might just be what Indira needs to find her way back to herself, and find love and happiness too ... unless Josh's Italian soap opera wife Valentina gets her way and ruins Indira's reputation and business. Heartbreak Cake was such a fun read, it is a story that is full of wit, humor, romance, and hope that easily draws the reader into Indira's life. You can't help but like this sassy lady and embrace her as she finds herself after making the mistake of loving the wrong kind of man, and risking everything to get her life back on track. Indira has a wonderful support system in her best friends Rebecca Potts and Pedro, her bakery partner, and mentor Simon Ford, who have her back and guide her with love and a little dose of sarcastic reality. Add in Noah, a new love interest who will give Indira what she needs to help put her embarrassing mistake of an affair in the past, and with a little help from heartbreak cake along the way, Indira might just be able to bounce back and start her life anew. With a cast of quirky characters who are engaging; witty dialogue and humorous interactions that will keep you in stitches; and decadent descriptions of cakes, pastries, and other yummy desserts that are tantalizingly interwoven throughout the story and will keep you salivating and reaching for the nearest chocolate bar; Heartbreak Cake is a thoroughly enjoyable and romantic chick lit story that will leave a smile on your face. So like Indira and Rebecca say: "When the world hands you lemons, eat cake!"
