Bon Appetit by Sandra Byrd is a sweet book as befits one in which Lexi, the heroine, is studying to be a pastry chef. And in Paris, no less. The descriptions of what her studies entail are fascinating for someone like me who has always adored Julia Child. So are the descriptions of how the French natives react to her. Having visited Paris briefly, I can attest to the truthfulness of those.
The story is written from a definite Christian perspective. This is not my usual style and I was leery at first, but it was done with a light touch. The lack of four-letter words actually comes as a relief.
The book is the second in Byrd’s French Twist series. I didn’t read the first installment, so some of the many characters got a bit jumbled in my mind. The reader is left hanging at the end of Bon Appetit without a resolution about which beau Lexi will choose, the French baker or the American lawyer. I guess I’ll have to read Book Three.
