Petit Four

Petit Four




Cake is often a major part of life's celebrations, both big and small. From birthdays to wedding days, cake, in all its delectable concoctions, marks joyous occasions with a sweetness that can't be beat. But even better is the love that is shared when two people connect over a sweet confection. Maybe it's a cute new guy wreaking havoc on a broken heart, or a beautiful woman testing the limits of love, or an old beau stirring up long lost desires. Whatever the circumstances, cake can always be relied upon to save the day when it comes to affairs of the heart. In this collection of short stories, cake is the delicious center around which each tale unfolds and romance blooms.

When single mom and journalist, Olivia, sets out to find romance in Cindy Arora's "Cake Therapy," she gets a little help from her friends and more than a few slices of cake to coax her off the couch and into the arms of a truly great love. Lucie Simone's "Aprez Vous" finds success-driven Tara in Paris reminiscing of her long lost love, Jean Marc, and her niece bound and determined to reunite them. In "The Heart-Shaped Secret of Raspberry Jam" by Sue Watson, cake enthusiast, Milly, meets her match in the kitchen, and other places, when new owners take over the tea rooms where she works and her talents and her heart are put to the test. And Scott, mayor of a small seaside community, flirts with political suicide in Joel Zlotnik's "Her Charms" when he falls for new-in-town Nicole, an entrepreneur with a passion for cupcakes and whose latest venture proves a little too sexy for the sleepy beach town.

From San Francisco to Paris, from small towns to tea rooms, this anthology tempts readers with humor, style, romance, and the powerful aphrodisiac that is cake. Petit Four is four stories, frosted with love.

If you have a sweet tooth, then you are in for a confectionery delight when you read Petit Four! This chick lit anthology contains four enjoyable short stories that have two intertwining themes: cake and romance! Authors Lucie Simone, Cindy Arora, Sue Watson, and Joel Zlotnik provide the reader with a fun anthology collection that is set in a variety of locales from San Francisco to Paris, and dipped in enough humor and romance that is sure to put a satisfied smile on your face. What could be better than to be able to read about delectable cakes mixed with sweet romance? Each of these lighthearted short stories are about friendship, love, life decisions, and cake! I loved reading each of the short stories in the anthology, and I enjoyed the authors different writing styles of weaving a sweet tale of romance that makes their readers crave the yummy goodness described in the stories, it's enough to give you a sugar high and leave you drooling and wanting more. Petit Four is an enjoyable Chick Lit anthology collection that you can indulge and devour in an afternoon.
