All Sadie had ever known, or ever wanted to know, was being a baker. She'd been raised to bake in her parents' bakery, and after their deaths, she had planned to carry on the family tradition. Devastated to find out she was losing her family's business, she needed something to do to support herself. When she received a letter from her twin sister's husband in Arizona Territory, suggesting she come out to be the bride of his best friend who was opening a restaurant, it seemed like the perfect solution to her problems. 

Tripp had gone to the best culinary school in the country, and he knew exactly how to create the perfect meal. He spent hours and hours coming up with just the right menu for his restaurant, only to be told he couldn't get a loan for it unless he married. When his best friend came up with the solution of sending for his baker sister-in-law, it only made sense. Her ideas of the perfect menu were different than his, though. Would the two be able to stay together long enough to convince the bank he was a good risk? Would Sadie be able to convince Tripp that the two of them belonged together after all? 
I really enjoyed this one! It's a little different story line than we normally see in mail order bride romances. It was refreshing to see something outside of the typical farmer/rancher and orphan type. Though, I do love those. It was nice to see something different nonetheless. This is a nice, sweet and clean book. It was a little dry in places and I skimmed a little. I felt like there wasn't enough of a build in the relationship itself. But overall I enjoyed this and think that those who enjoy clean mail order bride stories will as well!
