Cookie Carmichael has spent her marriage being the perfect wife and mother, and taken her husband’s philandering ways in stride to keep up the charade that she's happily married.
She’s taken care of her grandmother, taken her mother’s advice even when it was wrong, and taken her turn knitting scarves and mittens for the school fundraisers.
She’s taken so much in her life, including the arrival of her husband’s latest squeeze on her doorstep.
Now it’s Cookie’s turn to take back her life, take back her respectability and take the man of her choice.
Forced into the working world after years of being a stay-at-home mother, Cookie rediscovers her passion for baking. Her croissants become famous at DiMaggio's Bakery, thanks to the caring support of Tony Calder. Tony and Cookie start out as friends, but soon it becomes something else. Something magical.
Tony Calder still bears the emotional scars of his divorce, which means he's a little hesitant to take a chance on another woman.
But Cookie is not just any other woman. She's a woman with a personal plan for her life that includes him; a plan he can't resist, because he and she share an attraction that is undeniable.
A story of love, laughter and belonging.
