I'm Levi Buchanan, and until five years ago, I thought the legend of my family's curse was a load of crazy, Southern nonsense.
No curse can make you fall in love at first sight. No curse can force a true, deep, passionate, all-consuming love that will haunt you all the days of your life.
Then I met Jocelyn Abernathy and I realized how completely wrong I was.
The problem is, Jocelyn guards her feelings like well-armed soldier. She's the most beautiful, stubborn, infuriating woman I've ever met. Every time she talks, I want to kiss the living daylights out of her. But I can't.
Because when we met, she didn't need true love. She needed a best friend. And that's what I've been to her... for five years.
But when Jocelyn meets a handsome stranger her first day working at Donner Bakery and she lets him buy her a dill pickle cupcake, I realize with ominous regret that I may have missed my window with my best friend.
If I can't get her to see past our friendship, my new curse may be to watch the love of my life move on with someone else.
'Baking Me Crazy' is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, can be read as a standalone, and is book#1 in the Donner Bakery series, Green Valley World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

This book. This. Book. WOW!
Let's chat about the characters for a minute. I fell head over heels for Levi instantly. And Jocelyn? How could you not feel connected to her? These characters are everything in this life changing story.
Unrequited love. Or is it? There is something to be said about friends dipping their toes in the romance pool. It's scary. It's exhilarating. It could be the end all for the friendship. It could be the all for a relationship. I felt the pull and push all through this book.
I can't give this book enough praise. From its uniqueness in the characters, to the overall story, I was enthralled from start to finish. I need to go and read some of this author's previous books.
