From the RITA Award–winning author of Five Days in Skye comes a sweet, romantic treat that will leave you hungry for more.
Baker and pastry chef Melody Johansson has always believed in finding the positive in every situation, but seven years after she moved to Denver, she can’t deny that she’s stuck in a rut. One relationship after another has ended in disaster, and her classical French training is being wasted on her night job in a mediocre chain bakery. Then the charming and handsome private pilot Justin Keller lands on the doorstep of her workplace in a snowstorm, and Melody feels like it’s a sign that her luck is finally turning around.
Justin is intrigued by the lively bohemian baker, but the last thing he’s looking for is a relationship. His own romantic failures have proven that the demands of his job are incompatible with meaningful connections, and he’s already pledged his life savings to a new business venture across the country?an island air charter in Florida with his sister and brother-in-law.
Against their better judgment, Melody and Justin find themselves drawn together by their unconventional career choices and shared love of adventure. But when an unexpected windfall provides Melody with the chance to open her dream bakery-café in Denver with her best friend, chef Rachel Bishop, she’s faced with an impossible choice: stay and put down roots with the people and place she’s come to call home . . . or give it all up for the man she loves.

My Thoughts:
 Brunch at Bittersweet Café is one of my favorite books of 2019! Don’t miss this amazing read by Carla Laureano. I was absolutely in love with the characters, plot and storyline. From the beginning to the end, my heart was won over and I could not stop reading this book. I have had a difficult time with my love for reading, but Carla, was able to hook me back in through Melody and Justin. And if you are a romantic, the ski lodge scene was my favorite. I could not stop reading the book at this point. I am completely gushing over Justin! 

This book is one of those books that I will read again and again because it was great! It is also second in the series to The Saturday Night Supper Club, but can be read as a stand alone.  I have recommended Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe to my book club because I loved it and want my girls to read this book. Even my husband wanted to know what kept me up till 2 am until I was finished.  If you haven’t read The Saturday Night Supper Club, I highly recommend reading that book as well. Carla Laureano is an author you cannot miss. I give this book 5/5 stars. Make sure to check out this book as well as this author.
