The City Baker's Guide to Country Living


Town or country, coffee and something sweet could usually smooth out any problem with a deliveryman. ~excerpt


If you enjoy the nostalgic, warm feeling of a small-town, you’ll like The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living. It’s a sweet, fun, mouth-watering audio-story, delving into friendships, romance, mystery, and lots of yummy foodstuffs! You might even put on a pound or two just by reading/listening.

The waltz held the feeling you get when you finish a well-loved book. It left me longing for something I couldn’t name. ~excerpt

Author: Louise Miller is a pastry chef who lives and works in Boston, which gives the story weight and believability. She is talented and inspiring.

Audio Narration: Jorgeana Marie does a nice job of narrating this story, with a pleasant and versatile voice and inflection.

Audio Production Quality: The production quality of this audio book is clear, with no distracting background music, static, or skips.

Overall opinion: This is a feel-good type of story, almost saccharine sweet, with likeable and relatable characters. The book/audio-book flows nicely and gives a somewhat predictable, yet satisfying end.  I’m now yearning to visit and enjoy the flavors of New England.

4 Stars!
