Emily Barnes likes things measured and timed, just like any baker. When she loses the apartment that she needs to run her home-based muffin business, she’s faced with a choice; couch surfing, separated by very thin walls, and her very loud best friends, or house sitting an otherwise empty Upper East Side luxury apartment overlooking Central Park. Obviously it’s a no brainer for this smart cookie.
Declan Hayes is used to people asking things of him and saying no, but for Maggie, his parent’s cook and housekeeper, he would do just about anything, including going over to his parent’s apartment to check on her pseudo niece who is staying there. His plan was to get in and get out, but the second he saw her, something changed. Something about her sparked the normally cold and dismal place to life; she made it warm and inviting. He finally understood the phrase “there’s no place like home”.
Can Emily and Declan trust the timing of their lives or adjust the angle of the lens from which they see their lives?
Will hope, faith, trust and …? Love?
Will these things be enough for Emily and Declan to get the one thing they both never thought they needed in life?
It’s a good thing they are “Floured” because life is about to get sticky.
This is Lane Martin’s debut novel and Book #1 in the A Recipe for Love series. Due to explicit content, Floured is recommended for mature readers.
