Lexi Stuart has a dead end degree and a dead end job. All she knew is that she loves everything French. The language, the literature, the country. Since she doesn’t want to teach, she takes a job translating product labels into French—but that job bores her to tears. Its no huge loss when she is fired from the job—except now she has no income, her car is in danger of being repossessed and her parents have given her six months to get an apartment and move out.

Lexi applies for everything she can find in the paper, but finding another job is harder than she hoped. Eventually though, she lands a job working the front counter at her favorite French bakery. Okay, she’s not doing the baking she’d love to do, but she’s hopeful that there’s room for advancement.

And her new boss is French, accent and everything. Is Lexi attracted because he’s French, and she’s guy-less? Or is there something there?

Let Them Eat Cake is a delicious book by a talented author. Even the cover is making me gain weight. I related to Lexi, even though I’m no longer a directionless twenty-year-old, and hoped that she’d find everything she’s looking for, stability and hope in a job she enjoys. I also hoped for a yummy romance.

Let Them Eat Cake is a fun light-hearted read that will appeal to romance fans and chick lit fans alike. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and will look for more by this author. I also loved the fun little surprises in each chapter. There’s even a recipe or two. What could be better? Pick up your copy of Let Them Eat Cake today.
