Book Blog Tour Stop and Review - Icing On The Cake: Weddings by Design by Janice Thompson

About The Book:

Scarlet isn't sure if she has just the right ingredients for true love--or utter disaster
Scarlet Lindsey is busy making her dreams come true. She's moved her bakery to a prime spot on Galveston's most popular street, she's planning an extravagant cake for her best friend's wedding, and she has a great relationship with Bella Neeley, the island's most popular wedding coordinator. Business is booming and Scarlet is enjoying the ride.
But when Bella's dangerously handsome brother Armando breezes into her life, Scarlet is faced with a sticky situation. Should she stay with the safe, sweet guy who's been a fixture in her life for years? Or will this brash Italian hunk melt her guarded heart?
Fan favorite Janice Thompson is back with more wit, more weddings, and more of what you love best--bridal-business drama laced with laughs.

What Others Are Saying:

"Not only does Janice Thompson know how to spin a delightful tale, she knows weddings and wedding cakes. If you've ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes, take a big bite of this sweet, romantic story. It will leave you laughing and looking for the nearest confectionary!"--Lisa Wingate, bestselling author of Firefly Island and The Prayer Box

"Janice Thompson has done it again! From characters that will jump right off the page and into your heart to a story that had me laughing even as I cheered them on, The Icing on the Cake is a sweet treat. I urge you to indulge--you won't be sorry!"--Kathleen Y'Barbo, bestselling author of The Secret Lives of Will Tucker series

My Thoughts:

Here's a little known fact about me - I used to be a cake decorator, way back when!  So I was really interested in Janice Thompson's latest novel that featured a cake decorator as the main heroine!  And I can attest to the fact that Janice has gotten the character, plus all the details that go along with being a cake artist, down absolutely pat!

I loved this cute story of Scarlet, her interfering aunt, her supportive friends Bella and Hannah, and most of all, the handsome Armando, the man who lights Scarlet's flame!

"Icing On The Cake" is the second novel in Janice's "Weddings By Design" series, but first time readers will have no problem catching up with the back story from the previous book, "Picture This." 

This is a fun story, with just the right amount of inspirational message to be on track, but not too preachy!  The romance is gentle and charming as well!

I highly recommend any of Janice Thompson's novels!
