Avery King leads a very limited life, but she likes it that way. A failed relationship convinces her that being alone might not be so bad as long as she has her dog Steve to come home to. Besides that she goes to work, visits her beloved grandmother, and spends time with a few close friends. When life challenges her, she works through the situation by baking. She's about to do a lot of that. If there's one thing Avery is sure of it's that she doesn't do well with children, so she can't believe it when a friend calls in a debt and has her coaching a T-ball team. One of the children Max is special though and he has a beautiful mother who becomes very special, too. Elena Walker seems to be everything Avery wants in a woman, but she comes with a child and Avery isn't sure she wants the responsibility of that type of relationship. Baking isn't going to provide the answer to this problem. Beers shows her writing experience in creating this book. She knows how to pace a story so that the events unfold gradually and at a believable pace. Avery doesn't suddenly discover overnight that she loves children and events don't tie themselves up with the speed of a runaway train. Everything unfolds gradually, including any conflict or resolution that arises. She creates characters that the reader can not only relate to, but feel that she knows. The dialogue is realistic and the events seem true to life. Starting From Scratch is what Beers' fans expect from her, a solid romance with appealing characters and a great deal of humor. A reader looking for mystery, suspense or adventure won't find them here, but will find a satisfying book worth spending a few hours with. Remember there's a cute dog and a cute child and the book becomes pretty irresistible.

The characters are interesting and believable. The book is written in such a way that you'll care about what happens to them. There's laugh out loud humor. This is my favorite Georgia Beers book so far!

I bought this ebook on a whim last night and was not disappointed. It has great character develop and many Oh My moments. If your looking for a short enveloping story this is the book for you as it numbers in at only 220 pages. Each paragraph counts toward the end with no fluffy wasted words. Fabulouso!!!!!

I definitely consider myself a hopeless romantic and Starting From Scratch was a masterpiece of a romance novel. I bought this book on a whim and I am so glad I did because I fell in love with everything about it. I've been thinking endlessly about the characters ever since I finished reading, and I even feel like I'm going through a bit of withdrawal because I miss them already (and I just finished reading it 3 days ago). Although the ending wasn't tear-jerking, I cried anyway because I did not want the book to end. ;)

No real twists or turns, but pleasing. I enjoyed the palpable attraction between the main characters, but the best developed relationship was between Avery, the main character and t-ball coach to six-year old Max.
