Publisher's Summary

Let Them Eat Cake is a culinary delight…with a wonderful surprise ending.” (Rachel Hauck, author of The Wedding Dress

What do you do when you’ve got a degree in French and absolutely no job prospects? You slide into your favorite French bakery, of course! When a lighthearted conversation with the manager of the local patisserie turns into a job offer, Lexi Stuart gladly accepts. 

She indulges in tasty pastries and wins over skeptical coworkers, but the actual glamor is minimal and the pay less than generous. Trouble by the handful is stirred into her life as she juggles the flirtatious baker she has her eye on and a handsome young executive who likes Lexi even more than her Napoleons. 

As she folds together dilemma and delight, Lexi learns that it’s not satisfying to try to fulfill everyone else's expectations. Instead, she embarks on an adventure in trusting herself and God with her future. 

Download and devour this delicious series, lashed with romance and fun, and then spiced with a lightly Christian world view. Bon appétit!

Fun Faith-Centered Chick Lit

"Let Them Eat Cake" is a charming story about finding your place in the world- even when it turns out differently than you'd hoped. This story had realistic, likable characters that grew and changed throughout the story which kept me listening to find out what would happen to them next. I particularly liked the main character Lexi- a millennial trying to figure out who she wanted to be and what she believed in. I also loved hearing about the French bakery where she worked, and hearing some of the recipes she created. I enjoyed the faith element in the story- and how Lexi's belief in God morphed from just attending church occasionally to finding a faith of her own. I thought the narrator did an excellent job- she really picked up the emotions of the characters. My only criticism would be that there was a lot of inner monologue which slowed the story down in a few parts- but other than that I loved it and can't wait to listen to the next one!

Wonderful Clean Love Story

This is a lovely story about a Christian girl starting out life. Throughout the book I felt like I could relate to the character as I have many things in common with her. This is just the beginning of her love story and so you have to read (listen to) the other two books in order to find out what happens! The narrator does an excellent job she has a very sweet voice. I highly recommend this book and any of Sandra Byrd's books!

Low-key action compared to sci-fi , but

Let me explain. I have been listening to a ton of BV Larson's science fiction novels, but I am a guy that likes paranormal romance. It took a little while for me to warm up to the narrator, but I did. She's sweet and soft and after a few chapters she had me. The main character has her trials that she wades through, love, work, co-workers and her relationship with GOD. I think women may relate better than myself, but the author has 'hooked' at least one man for further listening to the next chapter.
P.S. I loved the recipes woven into the story.

Great listening

Very entertaining I couldn't put it down. Great story, characters, and narrator. It is about a college graduate who is having a hard time to find her place in the world. She overcomes difficulties and it seems like see is finding her place.

OK story. Recipes sound yummy. French needs work.

The lead character might have had fewer problems if she didn't let pride get in the way. "Help" may be a four-letter word, but it's not a cuss word. I know she knows French, but the way she works French words into English conversation makes her seem snobbish to me. Just because people work in a French bakery doesn't mean they are French. Lexi could have repeated her order as "coffee with cream" to the counter girl when it was obvious that Counter Girl was confused by the phrase "Café Crème." By the way, coffee with cream is "café avec de la crème" or "café á la crème." "Café Crème" is coffee cream, the stuff you put into coffee. Sometimes the narrator correctly says (the) Trois Amis as "twaz-ah-mee" but sometimes she lets the "s" in "trois" go silent ("twah-ah-mee"). I remember from elementary school French that if the second word starts with a vowel, you pronounce the end consonant of the first word. The author mentioned one of the Trois Amis (Three Friends), but then says "one of the other Trois Amis" instead of maybe "one of the other two Amis."

Great read and great to listen to as well!

I read this book quite a while ago and decided to listen to it while driving on a trip. Both times I enjoyed the story. This time listening to it, was enjoyable on a whole different level. It made the story "seem new", in a way. The author did a wonderful job of weaving spiritual truth into a wonderful and enjoyable story. Definitely reccomend reading and/or listening to this book!
