Review"For What It's Worth" by Karey White

For What It's Worth by Karey White

Rating: 5 of 5 stars
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Source: Netgalley

Book Description: Abby’s dream of owning her own cake shop is finally coming true, but she’s still not sure what to charge for her cakes. Deciding to let her customers determine her cakes’ worth quickly turns Abby into a real celebrity. But her newfound fame could end up costing her everything. This delectable romance is sure to keep you guessing to the very last page

Colleen's Thoughts: Such a lovely book in so many ways!  Karey White's ability to describe the cakes, hotels, rooms, or shops, and the beautiful Seattle landscape is exceptionally vivid.  I wished there had been a picture to go along with each of the cakes Abby made.  Each recipe at the beginning of the chapters made me want to rush into the kitchen and try it out.  Delicious!  As in so many romances, both fictional and real, Abby and Dane's relationship is fraught with a heart wrenching lack of communication.  The good news is, I finished the book feeling enriched by the exquisite beauty of not only the descriptive language, but the beauty of the male/female relationship.  The character development is poignant - a gentle reminder that each of us needs to take a hard look at our own lives and realign ourselves with what is most important.
