Piece de Resistance review

Published January 21, 2015 by francesothomas

Piece de Resistance by Sandra Byrd is the third and final book in her French Twist series. In it, we find out which suitor heroine Lexi chooses. No, I won’t spoil it for you.

Somehow I missed reading the first book, Let Them Eat Cake. I did read Bon Appetit, the second book and found the finale just as charming. I was engaged by the characters and curious to learn the outcome.

Lexi faces some ups and downs as she tries to get a bakery off the ground. She turns to the Bible for inspiration, solace, and advice.

Despite the Christian orientation, the characters are not saccharine sweet. They all share, however, an underlying moral compass.

I’m somewhat of a foodie, so that aspect of the book captured my interest. Byrd even throws in a few recipes. I also appreciated the quotations with which she begins each chapter.

I took a  quick glance at Byrd’s website and see she has started an historical series. Something to look forward to.piecederesistance
