When Sophie meets Garrett she just waits for him to run away. In fact she teases him so much about it, he finally gets sick of it. Eventually he does earn her trust and they set a wedding date. Things are looking up and Sophie is happy. That is until the week before their wedding. Garrett breaks it off and breaks Sophie’s heart. She finds her revenge and way of dealing with it all by creating her misfortune cookies. They are a hit with many of her customers and she gets a great deal of pleasure out of creating them.
I actually wasn’t sure I was going to read this book, but I am glad I did. It is a cute little story that is a great read for the hopeless romantic. I am not, but I sure did enjoy reading some of the “fortunes” that Sophie put in her cookies. They are laugh out loud funny. Chapter 12 starts with this misfortune, ” Yesterday is the high point of your life. Sorry.” That is just to funny and I am glad to say that I don’t believe that.
This book was a good reminder that sometimes we can look at life with very dark glasses and we need to remember to adjust those to our chocolate…er umm… rose colored glasses.
