Thea Rogers’ life is nothing like her romantic, elegant pastries. It’s more like a dull, dry rice cake.
Since spending that magical year in Paris in a work-study program at Nanine Laurent’s restaurant ten years ago, she’s been determined to create a delicious life for herself. But without that certain je ne sais quoi of the City of Lights and the support of her five Paris roommates, Thea’s lost sight of her dream of opening her own boulangerie. Worst yet, she’s lost sight of herself. Still, she puts on her sunshine persona, sticks another batch of croissants in the oven, and gets through each day—an overworked, underpaid baker living life through Netflix.
Then she gets the call that everyone dreads: her beloved Nanine has fallen ill.
Thea knows what she needs to do: go back to Paris. With the help of her roommates, they can get Nanine and her troubled restaurant back on their feet.
What she doesn’t realize: her former roommates can see she needs help too. They might be the unlikeliest of friends, totally different from her and from each other, but they see her—more than her own flesh and blood. They always have her back, and while they assist their host mother with her restaurant, they cluster around plain Jane Thea to give her the makeover of her life. New clothes and hair are definitely on the menu, particularly after Thea meets “Mr. Pinstripes,” Nanine’s gorgeous lawyer.
Only real-life intrudes on her fairy tale when Thea’s finally offered her dream: ownership of a bakery back in Small Town, USA. She would have to leave her found family and the man she’s fallen in love with. Will she choose the security of what she knows? Or dare to dream even bigger than she has before?
