For What It's Worth is a comination of my two favorite things -- romance and dessert! It is a sweet and charming story about a twenty-something girl named Abby who inherits money from her rich aunt which she then invests in opening a bakery.
This book was literally a "sweet and delicious" read! At the beginning of every chapter were mouth watering recipes (mostly of desserts!) and of course the whole story was sprinkled (like my pun? :)with baked goodness. (I was craving cake through most of it!) I loved the details of how Abby created the individual cakes since I enjoy decorating cakes myself. Karey has either done som extensive research on cake decorating or is a very accomplished baker in her own right!
I also adored Dane, who was Abby's love interest. He was sweet (there's that word again!) and adorable and completely charming. I was surprised that it took Abby so long to realize what a catch she had.
But the best part of this book for me was Abby's journey to discover what was most important in her life. With the unexpected success of her bakery, Abby has to figure where her priorities lie and whether she will let her professional success interfere with her relationships. I loved how this theme of "worth" was woven into so many details of the story and even in to the title. I really liked that a cute and fluffy romance could also convey such an important message.
For What It's Worth is adorable and creative and totally YUMMY!
