Type-A chef Carolyn Henderson has walked away from her job at a trendy NYC restaurant after an abrupt family tragedy. Now, as a guardian to her four-year-old niece, Emma, and a very disobedient mutt – kids and dogs are so not her skill set – moving back to Marietta, Montana seems the best temporary option. But when confronted by her parents’ declining health, Carolyn has to face reality. And she’s going to need some serious help. So who better to ask than Matthew West, a blast from her high school past... and as hunky and helpful as ever.
Vet – and very eligible, if reluctant, Bachelor – Matthew West can’t believe his luck when his high school crush stumbles through his door. Dogs, kids, and gorgeous damsels in distress. Carolyn needs help with the pup, and he needs help whipping up delicious concoctions for the Bachelor Bake-Off. So she wants to make a deal: dog obedience lessons for cooking tips... but Matthew wants to broker quite a bit more...

Great! A Teaspoon of Trouble
Kept my interest to finish the book. Author, Shirley Jump, developed characters well. Throughout the story, she describes emotions of all of them, including a four year old child. The story seemed to be easily anticipated of what was to come. Suprisingly, I was wrong. This is the first book of the The Bachelor Bake-Off series. It was free. I will gladly buy any books of this writer.
Looks like there are other authors on this series. A preview of: A Spoonful of Sugar ~has sparked my interest, that was at the end of current book. Different author and not free, but, am hooked to read all of the stories of the series. 🐰🐰🐰
Couldn’t do it
I couldn’t finish the book. This girl is a hypocrite. The girl is a coward yet was fearless in high school. She is terrible for breaking a guys heart out of selfishness and fear! I can’t respect any person who does that.
A little slow, than grabs your attention!
I had a little trouble getting into Carolyn and Matt's story at first. The hangups Carolyn has to change her career direction is very realistic to a lot of everyday people's choice's. Plus how she ends up with custody of her niece. It is always interesting how we have a tendency to stick with a path even if we don't love it until something pushes us another way. Matt's steady persistence pays off in the end.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
