Series: Fox Bakery #1
Author: Andrea Christenson
Publisher: Sunrise Publishing
Release Date: July 18, 2023
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Sometimes the sweetest moments in life are made from the most familiar and ordinary ingredients.

Robin Fox is living out her dreams working in a gourmet bakery in Paris. She thought she’d live there forever, but when her relationship with her boss sours, those dreams crumble. She finds herself back home in Deep Haven, Minnesota, caring for her grandparents’ rundown bakery while they’re away. But she vows that when they return in six weeks, she’ll trade this ordinary life for the one she left behind.

Sammy Johnson has never gotten traction in any area of his life. This hasn’t improved in the almost two years since the accident which nearly killed him. Although his heart is still beating, it contains little passion for the life he’s living in Deep Haven. But that begins to change when he offers to help his former high school friend, Robin.

Working together to keep Fox Bakery from going under, they find more than friendship is simmering between them. But when the six weeks are up, will Robin follow her old dreams back to the glamor of Paris or will she discover how sweet it is to be loved in Deep Haven?

Return to Deep Haven with the Fox Family, where Robin and Sammy find that small town life isn’t ordinary after all.

My Review of How Sweet It Is

How Sweet It Is by Andrea Christenson is A Deep Haven Novel featuring the Fox Family. When we first meet Robin, she’s living her dream baking cakes in Paris.

Soon, however, things sour and she finds herself back in Deep Haven minding her grandparents’ bakery. She reconnects with her high school friend, Sammy, who is struggling to move on from the accident that nearly killed him two years before.

As the relationship between Robin and Sammy simmers, the potential for something more is there. Sammy is the perfect guy for Robin: sweet, caring, and he supports her dream. But she’s so focused on returning to Paris she doesn’t realize the potential for more that was dangling under her nose.

I empathized with Robin. It’s not easy putting a dream on hold, especially when you’re so close to realizing it.

Sammy, on the other hand, struggled to find his purpose. The accident stole his confidence and he started to believe the lie that he wasn’t good enough. For that reason, he adopted the dreams of his friends for him rather than digging deep to figure out what he wanted.

Eventually, both Sammy and Robin will find their way, reminding readers that their dreams are worth fighting for. And that sometimes, a new dream can rise out of the ashes of an old one.

Readers of How Sweet It Is will be reminded that God has gifted each one of us with a purpose. And that when we turn those gifts over to Him, He can accomplish great things through us.

They will also be reminded that God will answer our questions if we ask. We can go to Him for direction, trusting He will show us the right path to take.

It was fun seeing some of the characters from the other Deep Haven books.

If you enjoy friends to more or the afraid to commit tropes, check out How Sweet It Is.

I received an advanced reader’s copy from the publisher through Just Read Tours; a positive review was not required.
