Lacey Hathaway has it all -- a job she loves as a local
radio DJ, a home with her adored, eccentric aunt and, best
of all, a community after a childhood traveling with her
musical parents. So what if her life is a little too safe?
Marietta is everything to Lacey. Not only is she helping to
organize the Bachelor Bake-Off and filming a documentary
about the process, she’s also volunteered her brother as a
Bachelor. But, when her brother backs out, Lacey has to find
a last-minute replacement. And who better than her aunt’s
lodger, gorgeous – if taciturn – Zac Malone?
Zac’s not exactly community-minded. In fact, he makes it
clear that the sooner he’s out of Marietta the better. But
when Lacey persuades him of the powerful impact the Bake-Off
funds will have on local children, he decides to give it a
go. On one condition. If he has to learn to bake, so does
disaster-in-the-kitchen Lacey. Desserts aren’t the only
thing heating up, and as the attraction flares and Zac makes
plans to leave, Lacey’s beginning to realize that maybe
there is a world beyond Marietta’s borders after all... if
she’s brave enough to take that step.
