Miracle Pie
Edie Ramer
Katie Guthrie has pie magic. Intuition tells her what to bake. Whether it’s a
Goodbye Pie or a Welcome Home Pie, it will turn out perfect and be waiting for
the person who needs it most.

She cherishes her life in the small village of Miracle,
Wisconsin, and has no desire for change. But to help a friend, she agrees to
film a cooking pilot show. Only to realize the filmmaker is the dying boy
Katie used to call her angel when she lived in Chicago with her junkie mother.

Gabe Robbins is no angel, and he’s no boy anymore. Burned out after a three-year stint building a hospital
in Africa, Gabe ignores his demons by living day-to-day and filming wedding
videos. Nothing deep, nothing he has to become invested in. Nothing that will
get under his skin, until…

Watching Katie create her pies from behind his video
camera makes him realize what he’s missing. Thanks to Katie and her pies, Gabe
discovers his passion again. But will it lead him to his heart’s desire…or will
this miracle take him away from Katie forever? (from Netgalley)

My Thoughts
I typically steer clear of romance novels, but honestly, this was just plain cute. Heart-warming more than anything. I love the concept that Katie baked pies based some deep seated intuition of what is going to happen in hers or someone else’s life. Gabe is good hearted (and sexy).

This was a quick, light, cozy and fun read. I’m glad I stepped out of my comfort zone on this one. I would like to read more in the Miracle series.

Thanks to Blue Walrus Books, via Netgalley, for allowing me to read this in exchange for an unbiased review.
