    There are several elements in this book that make it stand out. The romance is always my favorite of course, but I also appreciated the focus on all types of relationship dynamics- family, friends, and co-workers. Melody's semi-estranged mother, her two well-meaning best friends, and J...

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated in any way and all opinions are 100 percent mine. First of all, this is a contemporary romance that will remind you of a Hallmark movie, and for me, that is a good thing. Everything fr...

    BRUNCH AT BITTERSWEET CAFE is a slow moving romance. I was excited to read it - but found it draggy and easily put down - a good thing on deadline, but I wasn't excited to pick it up again. Justin was sweet, not as cocky as most pilots I know, and border-lined on being a jerk som...

    I read romance about 1-2x a year and when I do I make sure it?s by Carla Laureano. Impeccable writing and every scene boasts of research so well executed that I?m convinced Laureano is just simply an expert at everything she writes about! Everything feels real and authentic but not...

    Written with an authentic tone in every aspect of the story, Carla Laureano doesn?t just give you a fabulous story, she transports you out of your house and drops you into the Denver, Colorado foodie scene. I?m no professional, not by a long shot, but I could feel the tension of...

    Warning: reading this book may induce hunger...and may also cause some readers to mourn their lack of imagination when it comes to their culinary skills (raising hand sheepishly.) I'm not a foodie, but this book makes me want to be one! If I wasn't drooling over the hero (which I was -...

    ?Brunch at the Bittersweet Caf? by Carla Laureano is the second book in ?The Saturday Night Supper Club? series. It can easily be read as a standalone. I read (and loved) the first book and I think readers will have a more enriching reading experience by reading the first bo...

    'He'd thought that God was distant, but until now, he'd never thought He was cruel.' Melody Johansson, baker and pastry chef, has had a string of relationship disasters when a handsome stranger knocks at the door of the bakery in the wee hours of the morning and explains that his ca...

    Hope is not practical because hope feels. It is honest, so it will cry, it will ask questions, and it will hang on. This is probably the biggest lesson Justin Keller needs to learn. His rational and pragmatic self may have helped him become a successful young pilot, and his tendenc...

    If you are a fan of food and friends, you?ll love this series! And this second book is even better than the first one! I really enjoyed getting to know pastry chef/baker Melody Johannson, her mother, and of course Justin (swoon). I love this author?s characters because they seem so...

    This was so good! I loved the first book in this new series. and this one just as great. I liked the update on the relationship between Rachel and Alex and the hints to what's going to happen in the next book (such a long wait!). Just like in the first book, this story revolves a...

    Brunch at Bittersweet Caf by Carla Laureano | Book Review STORY | Restless is what Melody Johansson feels. As a French-trained pastry chef, she?s going nowhere (fast!) working in a chain bakery where nothing is made from scratch. Ideally, she dreams of the day she can open her o...

    Favorite Quotes: She was the one who had wiped Melody?s tears and kissed her scrapes and taught her all the things a young girl should know and quite a few things she shouldn?t. But that was her grandmother. I would call it an enthusiastic hobby, not an obsession. Pete ne...

    Brunch at Bittersweet Caf was a delightful story! I felt completely immersed in the lives of Melody and Justin as I read through this book. Their relationship and the struggles that they faced right from the beginning kept me turning the pages and hoping for a happily ever after for ...

    Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe is filled with bookish culinary delight! From the first line to the very end, Carla Laureano swept me away to Denver, Colorado. Ms. Laureano has such a gift with words. She put me in the dead of winter. Let me experience the smell and feel of baking bread. (S...

    ?Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe? by Carla Laureano is the second book in the Supper Club series. While this is the second book, this can easily be read as a stand-alone. Can I just say that I thought the first book was super fun and made me hungry for all of the food? Mrs. Laureano out...

    You know how when you take that first bite of a delicious desert your eyes kind of roll back into your head and you sigh and savor and get all giddy? Yeah, the first few chapters of BABC was like that. I don?t normally like instant attraction storiess but the author did SUCH a good j...

    Oh my word. I think I put on five kilos just reading this book, and the romance was even more delicious than the food. But this story was so much more than a light and fluffy endorphin stimulant. These characters had some tough choices before them and had to ask themselves: Which regre...

    Delicious Story! I really enjoyed Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe. I liked Melody. She has a strong sense of loyalty to her friends but has a ton of relationship baggage with former boyfriends, and her mother. Justin is a very dreamy sort of fellow, very easy on the eyes and filled wi...

    "Judging from the little quivers she felt in his presence, a mere twenty minutes after their first meeting, this one was a heartbreaker." Such a delightful world of delectable desserts and aviation! I don't know a lot about either one of these worlds, but Carla Laureano combines the...

    This book has strong characters. I felt their pain as they struggled with the dilemma and I couldn't predict what their choices would be until the end. As well as the relationship between Melody and Justin, I also enjoyed the conflicts between Melody and her friends and with her mum.Th...
