After selling her famous bakery back in New York, Parker Adams visits Hope Lake, Pennsylvania, to figure out her next steps. And soon she’s wondering why she ever loved city life in the first place. Between the Golden Girls—the senior women who hold court—and Nick Arthur, her equally infuriating and charming former flame, Parker finds a community eager to help her get her mojo back.
But even though Hope Lake gives her the fresh start she’s been looking for, Parker discovers that it’s not so easy to start over again with Nick. Their chemistry is undeniable, but since Nick is a freshly taken man, Parker is determined to keep things platonic. With a recipe for disaster looming, Parker must cook up a new scheme, figuring out how to keep everything she’s come to love before she loses it all.
Perfect for fans of Amy E. Reichert and Jenny Colgan, The Ingredients of You and Me is a scrumptious romantic comedy that lets you have your cake and eat it too.
I was up until 2:30am finishing The Ingredients of You and Me - I could not get enough of Parker and Nick! I was in love with Charlotte and Henry from Meet Me on Love Lane, but now...Parker and Nick are my favorite.
The chemistry between Parker and Nick was off the chart from the beginning. Even though they hid their relationship from their friends for months, their chemistry never went away.
Parker decides to get her baking mojo back by hanging and relaxing in Hope Lake, Pennsylvania, where her best friend, Charlotte lives. She sold her business in NYC and trying to figure out her next steps in life. Once she lands in Hope Lake, she quickly befriends the sweet "Golden Girls" - a group of fiesty and sassy senior ladies, who are absolute joy!
But living in this small tow, Parker can't avoid Nick. Nick is surprised to see Parker temporarily staying in Hope Lake and trying to remain friends proves to be hard.
