Book Review: Heaping Spoonful

Heaping Spoonful by Shauna Glenn

Disclosure: No one paid me in any way, form or fashion to do this review.

Heaping Spoonful is about Claire, a woman who finds herself on a path of her life journey she didn't expect to take: a widow raising two young children after her husband dies of cancer. Luckily she's not completely alone as her father and sister give her help and support as well as the people that work at her bakery Heaping Spoonful. Claire struggles to find meaning and her place in a life without her husband as well as learning to love again.

This is a touching story that can have you laughing on one page, and crying on the next. A quick read, one thing I really enjoyed about this book is the writing style. Glenn's writing is straight and to the point. It was a lot like the way I think in the asides Claire made to herself.
