Sweet Melody by Heidi McCahan. 2019.
When a struggling bakery owner is rescued by a wannabe songwriter with hidden culinary talents, they discover they can make sweet harmony … if they can only learn to work together.
Rhett Foster longs to change the world with his music, yet he can’t even finish writing one song. Battered by a string of failures and disillusioned, he returns home to Portland, Oregon. While he desperately wants to create a chart-topping hit, his dad mandates a new mission: move to coastal vacation hotspot Seabrook, Washington and expand the family’s successful restaurant chain.
In danger of destroying her late parents’ legacy if she doesn’t diversify her menu, Lindsay Carmichael will try anything to save her bakery. But with a tiny budget and an injured employee who can’t work, she has no choice but to sink the last of her savings into buying a dilapidated food truck and hiring Rhett as a part-time barista. What she doesn’t know is that the handsome songwriter has a secret … one that could destroy her business and her heart.
Kathryn Cooper Writes’ REVIEW
4 out of 5 STARS
Sweet Melody took me on an up and down ride of life. There were moments of excitement and accomplishment and times of worry and sadness. I enjoyed this read a lot.
Lindsay was a baker of deliciousness. It was hard to read because currently I’m trying to NOT eat a lot of sweets. My mouth watered a little when she talked about her cupcakes. I felt so proud for Lindsay as she continued to push for her little business. That would be so hard to keep a small business going. Plus dealing with the stress of taking care of employees.
She was lucky to find an employ named Rhett. Rhett had some secrets about his family, but he was a great barista. Rhett and Lindsay felt a lot of sparks building up between them. It was so cute to read about them trying to NOT feel attracted to each other. Watching their relationship build and go up and down was exciting.
I really enjoyed reading Sweet Melody by Melody McCahan. It was full of real life good and hard times. The building up of their relationship was entertaining! I recommend this read to anyone that likes to read clean delightful romance.
