The Secret Ingredient

Author: Naigle, Nancy


From the USA Today bestselling author of The Shell Collector, comes a delightfully festive Valentine’s treat, perfect for fans of Carolyn Brown, Susan Mallery, and Viola Shipman.

Years ago, Kelly McIntyre couldn’t see her life getting any sweeter. She was engaged and dreaming of opening a restaurant with her fiancé, Andrew York. But Andrew had other ideas. To her utter surprise, he chose to take an opportunity to study in Paris—alone—and their courtship came to an abrupt end.

Now Kelly’s not only the owner of an adorable potbellied pig named Gray, who keeps her company in those cold nights, but she also owns her own bakery. Business is good—so good that she’s invited to compete in a Valentine’s Day baking competition in New York. As she prepares for the contest, she’s feeling confident. Until she hears that Andrew is back in town.

The last thing either of them need is to stir up old feelings. But little do they know that they might be stirring more than their feelings when they face off at the competition… Will they agree on the secret ingredient to happiness? Or will they get more than they bargained for?

The perfect Valentine’s escape that will have you nibbling your favorite chocolates and snuggling up late into the night. If you enjoyed the TV movies based on Nancy’s books and are looking for more delightful romance, look no further!
