Publisher's Summary

Running the family bakery and living in the store's attic might not be Daisy's dream life, but she's beginning to understand what being content feels like. And then she gets some unexpected news. In one moment, Daisy's calm existence turns into chaos. Now she's struggling to keep it together, especially with renovations at the bakery spiraling out of control.But when a box of recipes and mementos is found hidden behind a wall in the bakery, Daisy suddenly has something to cling to-a mystery that echoes her own troubles and gives her the opportunity to figure out what she really wants out of life.

Great!

Great story and characters! Hope more to come. Narrator is the best! Union Street Bakery is a wonderful setting and the plot was so very interesting.

Much skipping.

The first book kept my interest but this one would be better is abridged. I kept skipping ahead because of the main characters constant pitty parties and negative attitude. Very depressing.

Such a sweet story.

Loved all of the characters, depth of feeling, glimpses into the past. Very nice story, as was the prequel to this book, The Union Street Bakery.

Interest grabbing but totally mislabeled. NOT A MYSTERY

Excellent book. Good narrator. However, just as the first book in this series, it bares absolutely no relation to a mystery. I have no idea why has been place in that category. So, if you're looking for a mystery, this book is not for you. But if you looking for family drama, then it's a good one.
