It’s hard to imagine that I’m even able to blog about this, because it all just seemed like a dream I had years ago that one day I would write a book. And after several years of spurts and stops, different plotlines, lots of wine, lots of chocolate and lots of long walks I am thrilled to announce that my publisher Simon & Fig has just released the cover and blurb for Heartbreak Cake.
I really love it and I hope you do too! I’ll make sure to write more as we get closer on the inspiration behind the cover but today, let’s just soak in the beauty of this cover and blurb!
Business is sweet for pastry chef Indira Aguilar. Her indie bakery, Cake Pan, is fast becoming the talk of the wedding circuit for its unique take on cakes and homespun creations for the modern bride, garnering national recognition and drawing in celebrity clients. But while her professional life is blossoming, her personal life is crumbling.
Indira may have a talent for blending buttercream into bliss, but when it comes to relationships, she’s got a lot to learn. Considering that the love of her life, Josh Oliver is not only married, but also runs the award-winning pastry department of her fiercest competition, Crystal Cove Resort, Indira puts much more at stake than just her heart when she ends her affair with him.
Rumors begin to fly as the small seaside community of Long Beach learns of her secret relationship, and Indira must defend not only her actions, but her wedding business and her reputation while trying to maneuver the choppy heartbreak waters of starting over, finding new love, and facing her past. With the support of friends, family, a fondness for butter, and a determined spirit, Indira may just bake her way back to happiness and possibly into the heart of Crystal Cove’s dishy new chef, Noah. But one thing is certain. Where there’s heartbreak, there must be cake.
