About A Pinch Of Ooh La La:
To get to happily ever after, sometimes you need to start from scratch….
Abbey Ross, who runs her own bakery in Oakland, California, is known for her visually stunning wedding cakes. But lately, Abbey’s own love life has become stale. According to her best friend, Bendrix, Abbey’s not the spontaneous young woman she was when they were teenagers listening to the Cure and creating attention-grabbing graffiti. Of course, her failed relationship with a womanizing art forger might have something to do with that. Nevertheless, it’s time for Abbey to step out of the kitchen—and her comfort zone—and Bendrix has even handpicked a man for her to date.
Samuel Howard is everything Abbey’s dreamed of: handsome, successful, and looking to raise a family. But a creamy icing might be needed to hide a problem or two. When Samuel complains about disrespect for the institution of marriage, Abbey’s reminded of her nontraditional family, with thirteen children from various mothers. And when Samuel rails about kids having kids, Abbey thinks of her twenty-year-old sister who’s recently revealed her pregnancy.
Soon Abbey is facing one disaster after another and struggling to make sense of it all. Her search for love has led her down a bitter path, but with the help of her unique family and unwavering friends, she just might find the ooh la la that makes life sweet.
About author Renee Swindle:
My first novel, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, was published by the Dial Press/Random House. Please Please Please was an Essence Magazine/Blackboard bestseller and published in Germany and Japan.
My second novel, SHAKE DOWN THE STARS, was published August, 2013. Says RT Book Reviews of Shake Down The Stars: “Shake Down The Stars is a true gem. Beautifully written, it’s full of emotional impact that touches the heart without weighing the reader down. Themes of love, loss, and addiction will reach into the reader’s soul.” And Dish Magazine: “She has a way of making her character’s dance on the page.”
I earned her BA from UC Irvine (go Anteaters!) and MFA in creative writing from San Diego State University. I live in Oakland, California with my three rescue dogs and three cats. Yep, six animals and me. I’d love to be in touch. Please contact me about visits to book clubs or if you have a question or comment.
