Bon Apetit

Bon Apetit
By Sandra Byrd
About the book:
Lexi Stuart is risking it all. Saying au revoir to the security of home, her job, and could-be boyfriend Dan, Lexi embarks on a culinary adventure in France to fulfill her life dream of becoming a pastry chef.
As she settles into her new home in the village of Presque le Chateau to study and work in a local bakery, her twenty-something optimism meets resistance in the seemingly crusty nature of the people and culture around her. Determined to gain her footing, she finds a church, meets a new friend, and makes the acquaintance of a child named Celine–as well as Celine’s attractive, widowed father, Philippe. Even Patricia, the gruff pastry cook, shows a softer side as she mentors Lexi in the art of baking.
As Lexi lives her dream, the only thing she has to do is choose from the array in life’s patisserie display window: her familiar home, friends, and family in Seattle or her new life in France. Lexi discovers that as she leans more on God the choices become a little clearer– and making them, well, c’est la vie!
My thoughts:

In Bon Apetit, book two of the French Twist Series, Lexi has now moved to France in order to pursue her chefs hat. She arrives with stars in her eyes and is surprised at the difficulty she ha adjusting to the coldness of the French people, school with some less than truthful students, and being so far away from home. Through this time Lexi is driven further to look for God for guidance and fulfillment.

Sandra Byrd does an amazing job of bringing France and Lexi's surroundings to life like she dropped up into the center of Paris.
