    Audiobook As a fan of The Great British Bakeoff this was too temping to pass up. I don't think I even read the books description all the way before I was purchasing it. "What a joy" see I sounded like Mary there didn't I ? LOL So this book takes you into the live of a cooking contest...

    My Review: It shouldn't come as a shock that I picked up this book. First off, the cover was beautiful (I adore teal) and it caught my attention right away. Second, it's about baking, y'all! I thought this book was a no-brainer for me but unfortunately I found this book lacking in a fe...

    Eaden and Sons are running a baking competition to find the new face for their baking campaigns. Mrs Eadon wrote The Art of Baking in the 1960's and the book is still very popular. The new campaign will use many of her recipes. Five contestants are chosen and they travel down to the...

    The Art of Baking Blind is a lovely ode to The Great British Bake Off, one of my favourite TV programmes. The story alternates between the competition to find the new Mrs Eaden and the competition's inspiration, Kathleen Eaden, the wife of a grocer turned supermarket magnate as she...

    Over the past couple of years there's been a flurry of novels published with covers and titles that include cakes and chocolate and cafes. It would be easy to assume that Sarah Vaughan's The Art of Baking Blind is another story from the same mould - or cake tin. I have absolutely nothi...

    This book appears to be about baking, but actually it's more to do with motherhood. There are 5 main characters. Kathleen, who has recently died. Her story is told in flashback from her life in the 60's as a young woman. She is an attractive and talented baker who writes a successf...

    I loved this book and devoured it in 3 days!! No pun intended! I didn't want it to end! I love baking and it was the title which first attracted me. I immediately warmed to the characters, especially Jenny and Karen and found them all very believable. The ongoing thread of the origin...

    A most excellent read, and a surprisingly engaging debut novel. Women's fiction, to be sure, this story has a ring of truth that will resonate with all women, regardless of their specific path. Very, very British in style; witty, funny, sad, and triumphant. ...

    If you like The Great British Baking Show, you will like this book. The characters are great and they draw you into the story. ...

    The author's take on the show The Great British Bake Off, a show I've never seen, but I love anything to do with the Food Network, so it probably sounds like something I would watch. I loved the British narrator, and the story o would have to give 3 1/2 stars. The four female conte...

    (3.5) ?While perfection might be possible in baking, in life, well, it?s impossible. The perfect wife, the perfect child, the perfect mother? None of us can be these. They?re mere fancies.? The search for a new ambassador for Eaden?s high-end supermarket chain brings five ama...

    Audiobook As a fan of The Great British Bakeoff this was too temping to pass up. I don't think I even read the books description all the way before I was purchasing it. "What a joy" see I sounded like Mary there didn't I ? LOL So this book takes you into the live of a cooking contest...

    My Review: It shouldn't come as a shock that I picked up this book. First off, the cover was beautiful (I adore teal) and it caught my attention right away. Second, it's about baking, y'all! I thought this book was a no-brainer for me but unfortunately I found this book lacking in a fe...

    Eaden and Sons are running a baking competition to find the new face for their baking campaigns. Mrs Eadon wrote The Art of Baking in the 1960's and the book is still very popular. The new campaign will use many of her recipes. Five contestants are chosen and they travel down to the...

    The Art of Baking Blind is a lovely ode to The Great British Bake Off, one of my favourite TV programmes. The story alternates between the competition to find the new Mrs Eaden and the competition's inspiration, Kathleen Eaden, the wife of a grocer turned supermarket magnate as she...

    Over the past couple of years there's been a flurry of novels published with covers and titles that include cakes and chocolate and cafes. It would be easy to assume that Sarah Vaughan's The Art of Baking Blind is another story from the same mould - or cake tin. I have absolutely nothi...

    This book appears to be about baking, but actually it's more to do with motherhood. There are 5 main characters. Kathleen, who has recently died. Her story is told in flashback from her life in the 60's as a young woman. She is an attractive and talented baker who writes a successf...

    I devoured this in a few days; it's an addictive chocolate-layer cake of a book with a frothy topping of rivalry, layers of emotional yearning and a sprinkling of the bitter truths of life. Debut novelist Sarah Vaughan takes a fascinating cultural phenomenon - the baking competition -...

    I received a review copy This was a book that had me invested from the very beginning. I absolutely love books that flip between past and present. While we only got little clips from Kathleen Eaden on her past, they were full of knowledge and really tied the story together. Each compe...

    I loved this book and devoured it in 3 days!! No pun intended! I didn't want it to end! I love baking and it was the title which first attracted me. I immediately warmed to the characters, especially Jenny and Karen and found them all very believable. The ongoing thread of the origin...

    A most excellent read, and a surprisingly engaging debut novel. Women's fiction, to be sure, this story has a ring of truth that will resonate with all women, regardless of their specific path. Very, very British in style; witty, funny, sad, and triumphant. ...

    I won a copy of this book through the Goodreads first reads program. I wanted to really like this book because I found the premise very interesting, but, in the end, it was just okay for me. The main thing is that there are too many characters and some never get fleshed out or used to ...

    A brilliant read for anyone who loves to escape when baking - and a great book for showing you never really know whats happening behind closed doors. ...

    I'm going to gif the hell outta this review. So all you gif haters have something to b@#ch about this week. Rejoice! Back in the 1960's Kathleen Eaden wrote the ode to baking. Not only did she do that but she put forth that perfect mother, perfect wife, helped her husband open a cha...

    Audiobook As a fan of The Great British Bakeoff this was too temping to pass up. I don't think I even read the books description all the way before I was purchasing it. "What a joy" see I sounded like Mary there didn't I ? LOL So this book takes you into the live of a cooking contest...

    My Review: It shouldn't come as a shock that I picked up this book. First off, the cover was beautiful (I adore teal) and it caught my attention right away. Second, it's about baking, y'all! I thought this book was a no-brainer for me but unfortunately I found this book lacking in a fe...

    This book appears to be about baking, but actually it's more to do with motherhood. There are 5 main characters. Kathleen, who has recently died. Her story is told in flashback from her life in the 60's as a young woman. She is an attractive and talented baker who writes a successf...

    I devoured this in a few days; it's an addictive chocolate-layer cake of a book with a frothy topping of rivalry, layers of emotional yearning and a sprinkling of the bitter truths of life. Debut novelist Sarah Vaughan takes a fascinating cultural phenomenon - the baking competition -...

    I won a copy of this book through the Goodreads first reads program. I wanted to really like this book because I found the premise very interesting, but, in the end, it was just okay for me. The main thing is that there are too many characters and some never get fleshed out or used to ...

    A brilliant read for anyone who loves to escape when baking - and a great book for showing you never really know whats happening behind closed doors. ...

    I'm going to gif the hell outta this review. So all you gif haters have something to b@#ch about this week. Rejoice! Back in the 1960's Kathleen Eaden wrote the ode to baking. Not only did she do that but she put forth that perfect mother, perfect wife, helped her husband open a cha...
