Description

Wyn Morrison's disastrous marriage to David is no more than a distant memory. Now in charge of bread making at the Queen Street Bakery in Seattle, she still works a shift that begins when most people are getting ready for bed. The delectable Mac, sexy barman by night, aspiring writer by day, is keeping Wyn short of sleep even as his failure to deal with issues in his past creates friction between them. Meanwhile at the bakery, conflict escalates between edgy young barista Tyler and pretentious new cake designer Maggie, who has a few unpleasant secrets of her own. Add to the mix one new landlord bent on hiking rents into the stratosphere, Mac's abrupt departure, and Tyler's devastating loss. Before the year ends, Wyn's new self-awareness and resiliency will be tested when the Queen Street Bakery's existence is threatened, as well as when Mac returns and she must decide whether there's still a place for him in her life.show more
