This is the first of two delightful reads soon to be three in the French Twist series. Alexandra or Lexi as her friends refer to her takes on a part time job job at the local Cafe/Patisserie Francaise as part of her quest to grow up and support herself rather than living at home. Of course her parents’ impending move to a 55+ community on one of Puget Sound’s offshore islands which also means selling their home in Seattle forces an urgency she might not otherwise have in this respect. Despite the choices foisted on her by her parents retirement and down-sizing she also has her own dreams that might be a tad more attainable with her own space. The job ends up being a means to an end which in this case is a place of her own and a steady boyfriend with a view towards marriage down-the-road. The job is simply the collateral that will get her there – at least so she thinks. Is this really the case or does God have something else in mind for our intrepid 20-something trapped about as far from France as possible? Grab a copy of this entertaining adventure in the life of an “average” post-college woman still wondering where her true niche is. (ISBN#9781400073276, 320pp, $13.99)

Use the bookcover to read more about this lighthearted yet lesson-filled chronicle of a young woman learning about faith and what adulthood truly means. You can also purchase a copy for yourself while you’re there. Be sure to check out my review of Bon Appetit – the 2nd book of this series – as well
