Frankie Taylor is a pastry chef in need of a fresh start, and Cap Roberts is a coffee shop owner in need of a pastry chef. Sounds simple enough, doesn't it?
When Devin “Cap” Roberts hired Frankie to make the pastries for his coffee shop, it was supposed to be a business arrangement. But once he discovers something that leaves him wondering what Frankie has on underneath his clothes, business is the last thing on Cap’s mind.
As a newly single father, Cap is risking not only his heart, but that of his daughter’s as well. However the more he gets to know Frankie, the more he realizes that a man like him only comes along once in a lifetime—and a love like theirs is worth taking a chance for.
But the delicious pastries he bakes aren't the only thing about Frankie that makes Cap's mouth water, and as a newly single father, Cap can’t afford to risk not only his heart, but his daughter's as well. Especially since they don't know if Frankie will stay in River Gorge.
With the help of a few meddling friends, one determined little girl, and a few snowflake kisses, the two men will discover a love that is worth the risk.
Devin's a cafe owner who's raising his niece. The fun starts when he invites Frankie to work with him. It's superb the way this helps both men, and brings out the best in Frankie. There are fun bakery creations, with are wonderfully described, both fun and easy to envision.
My favorite character however is Annie, Devin's niece. The four year old is absolutely cute, sweet, and funny. The way she bonds with Frankie is superb and is a huge part of the story. If you enjoy kids, you'll love her. Honestly, if you enjoy kids, Jackie James excels in weaving adorable children into her stories.
As a couple, Devin and Frankie are amazing. Their connection is strong both in and out of the bedroom. But, best of all, there's lace! Oh wow, I love the lace!
The writing is great, with excellent dialogue and a quick pace. As I've come to expect from this author, she excels in the development of a fantastic group of friends, family, and small town feel. Although a predictable plot, it's still
wonderful and riveting.
Snowflake Kisses is perfect when you're looking for your next fluffy romance. Jacki James will not disapoint.
