Wynter starts her life over in Seattle.

After her husband very suddenly ends their marriage, a woman finds a new life in a Seattle bakery. This book is on the light side, but a very engaging and well-written read. Plus: recipes for bread and other baked goods! (Avoid this if you're intolerant to gluten.)

A pampered wife leaves the protective world of a society life and being totally supported by her husband. Her hand is forced when her husband announces the marriage no longer works. She goes to Seattle and works in a small bakery. She finds that bread making gives her a sense of purpose. She basically discovers who she is. I am familiar with Seattle so loved the descriptions of areas such as the Pike Street Market. I like the evocative language surrounding the scenes of baking. You can almost smell the bread. Plus there is practical information for the baker. I marked it down a bit because the love interest is fairly predictable. I found the development of the love relationship weak as the novel wraps up quickly at the end.
