Welcome to the Blog Tour for How Sweet It Is by Andrea Christenson, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!



Several years ago Susan May Warren introduced the fictional town of Deep Haven, Minnesota to her readers. So beloved by her readers over the years, two new Deep Haven series have been introduced featuring new authors who work with the original author to take readers back to the friendly town many would love to call home. In How Sweet It Is, Andrea Christensen has crafted a story with characters and a theme that fit right in and readers will love.

Discouraged, Robin Fox returns to Deep Haven to keep her grandparents’ bakery open while her grandfather recuperates for awhile in Florida after some serious health problems. Both grandparents could use a little R&R from their busy lives. Determined to make a name for herself as a baker in France, Robin intends her trip home to be only a temporary one. She encounters an old high school friend, Sammy who makes himself indispensable as she encounters one emergency after another at the bakery.

Naturally there are sparks between Robin and Sammy but Robin can only see the future she originally planned is determined to keep Sammy in the friends only category. Sammy’s injury in a serious accident has left him feeling useless and unworthy of her love. What fun it is to see how the Lord works in their lives to stir up things and prove otherwise.

As expected, I thoroughly enjoyed How Sweet It Is, especially the healing that took place in the lives of both principal characters. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by JustReads Publicity. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.


Title: How Sweet It Is
Series: Fox Bakery #1
Author: Andrea Christenson
Publisher: Sunrise Publishing
Release Date: July 18, 2023
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Sometimes the sweetest moments in life are made from the most familiar and ordinary ingredients.

Robin Fox is living out her dreams working in a gourmet bakery in Paris. She thought she’d live there forever, but when her relationship with her boss sours, those dreams crumble. She finds herself back home in Deep Haven, Minnesota, caring for her grandparents’ rundown bakery while they’re away. But she vows that when they return in six weeks, she’ll trade this ordinary life for the one she left behind.

Sammy Johnson has never gotten traction in any area of his life. This hasn’t improved in the almost two years since the accident which nearly killed him. Although his heart is still beating, it contains little passion for the life he’s living in Deep Haven. But that begins to change when he offers to help his former high school friend, Robin.

Working together to keep Fox Bakery from going under, they find more than friendship is simmering between them. But when the six weeks are up, will Robin follow her old dreams back to the glamor of Paris or will she discover how sweet it is to be loved in Deep Haven?

Return to Deep Haven with the Fox Family, where Robin and Sammy find that small town life isn’t ordinary after all.
