From Goodreads:

Montana real estate agent Quint McCoy will tell you that the most important thing is location, location, location. It’s a lesson he learns all too well when he goes incommunicado for a four-week fishing trip to Alaska. While he’s away, his mother Molly turns his office into the pie shop she has always dreamed of, Big Sky Pie. But that’s not the only surprise in store for him.

On her way out of town, Callee McCoy only wants to say a fond farewell to her beloved mother-in-law. But Molly soon persuades Callee to stay and lend a hand at the new shop, even if it means heating up the kitchen with her soon-to-be ex. As Callee and Quint rediscover their recipe for love, they realize that some couples are so sinfully good together that one delectable taste is never enough . . .

My thoughts:

The story was kind of cute but overall I was disappointed in the book. One of the first things I
encountered was strong language. It seemed it was strong language just so there would be strong language, I don’t think it helped in defining the main male character. There were also several passages that were sexually explicit. I tried to skim over these parts as best as I could. They were not why I read the book. I read it because I like pies and thought it might make a different romantic storyline. The storyline was predictable as were the characters. There was one secondary character that I did get interested in, Jane Wilson. She will be featured in the next Big Sky Pie book, Delicious. There were a few parts that were well written so I may read Delicious just to see if it’s better (and skip over any sexually explicit parts again). I did, however, get some great tips on making pies.

I received this book from Forever Publishers through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
