Review 'Nothing to Lose' by Darlene Fredette

She has one last hope – a small, family-run bakery that might just be baking up second chances.

Dwindling finances has Jesse Robinson running out of options. With a past filled with failures, she longs for a new beginning. Applying for a job she isn’t qualified for may be another crazy mistake, but at this point Jesse has nothing to lose.

Juggling two jobs, Travis Cooper has absolutely no time for a relationship and isn’t looking for one. But when his mother hires an unqualified baker, he has more to worry about than three-tiered wedding cakes. Like whether to break his own no-dating-employees rule and make a little room in his life for love.

My Review:

After I read the book description of ‘Nothing To Lose’ by Darlene Fredette, I knew I really wanted to read this book. It sounded like a fun and romantic book and a perfect read for a nice cold Sunday afternoon. I didn’t really like the cover though. But I didn’t let it bother me for long and started reading.

‘Nothing To Lose’ is the perfect example of a short novel that makes you feel good. Jessie is desperately looking for a new job since she has to pay her rent soon and doesn’t have any money to spend. So when Jessie sees a job opening for a new baker at a small bakery, she decides to apply for the job. But Jessie isn’t a baker and she doesn’t have any experience in baking whatsoever. But Jessie does have experience in working her but off, and she will do anything to get the job.

‘Nothing To Lose’ was a fun read. The writing is nice, but nothing fancy and the story definitely felt kind of rushed to me. Because the story is so short, it really felt like the two main characters Jesse and Travis met and had a relationship before you know it. But it was fun to read about Jessie and Travis. And I especially love stories involving bakeries. And the bakery in this book, sure feels like a nice, cozy and tasty bakery.

Overall everything in ‘Nothing To Lose’ was a little too cliché for my taste. But I enjoyed reading this book. It really was a perfect Sunday afternoon read.

My Rating:

About the Author:

An avid reader since childhood, Darlene loved to put a pencil to paper and plot out stories of her own. Her writing is a combination of contemporary romance with chick lit flare, and a main focus as a plot-driven page-turner. When Darlene isn’t writing, editing, or reading she enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, and Yellow Lab.
