Scarlet isn't sure if she has just the right ingredients for true love--or utter disaster

Scarlet Lindsey is busy making her dreams come true. She's moved her bakery to a prime spot on Galveston's most popular street, she's planning an extravagant cake for her best friend's wedding, and she has a great relationship with Bella Neeley, the island's most popular wedding coordinator. Business is booming and Scarlet is enjoying the ride.

But when Bella's dangerously handsome brother Armando breezes into her life, Scarlet is faced with a sticky situation. Should she stay with the safe, sweet guy who's been a fixture in her life for years? Or will this brash Italian hunk melt her guarded heart?

Fan favorite Janice Thompson is back with more wit, more weddings, and more of what you love best--bridal-business drama laced with laughs.

Available at Deeper Shopping, Amazon, and other retailers.

I fell in love with Janice Thompson's wedding-themed books when I read her Weddings by Bella series and was delighted when she returned to Galveston with the Weddings by Design series. The first book lived up to its title, Picture Perfect (my review is here, and The Icing on the Cake is, well, just that! While much about this book is pure sweetness and fun, Thompson has tastefully blended an additional ingredient into the story as Scarlet grapples with an issue familiar and relatable to many women. A heaping supply of humor mixes with the perfect measure of faith and love, providing the perfect recipe for a great read! Don't miss it, and keep your eye out for The Dream Dress, due in February 2014!
