I really enjoy my visits to Cedarville. Now, don’t worry too much if you haven’t read all of the previous Cedarville novels from Bree Kraemer before this one. I would really only be concerned that you read “After All These Years” which is book #7. That is where we first get to meet the main characters of “Say When”. All of Kraemer’s Cedarville’s novels are fantastic though. I truly love the cast of characters. They all vary and are like old friends that we get to visit from time to time. I would have to say this one happens to be one of my favorites though and comes as a nice and sweet heartwarming read that I just couldn’t put down until I had devoured all of it in one sitting.
Like I said we have met Dani before in the seventh book, “After All These Years.” There we found out all about her shyness. It really inhibits her ability to live out in the open or find love. But it doesn’t affect her gift of baking. She makes some delicious treats and finds herself making the deserts that are served at the restaurant that Wes runs and opens in the book.
Patrick was hired as the chef of Wes’s restaurant. He himself is a quiet guy. His passion for cooking is sort of similar to Dani’s love of baking. Patrick has also fallen in love with the cupcakes that he has been consuming at the restaurant. He just wishes he knew who made them. One day fate gives him the opportunity to find out just who that it. He is blown away by how sexy and stunning she is. He is even more shocked to learn she is the same shy and introverted girl that he used to know as his sister’s best friend, just all grown up.
What will happen when they both discover that the attractions are mutual? Can Dani overcome her shyness just enough to let herself feel love? Will these two mix up more than just a good dish or treat?
I loved this installment, and I personally can’t wait to find out what will come next for the little town of Cedarville. Thanks for another great read Bree Kraemer!
