Summary

The New York Times bestselling author of The Lost and Found Bookshop brings readers a can't-miss tale of friendship, hardship, redemption, and love between a San Francisco baker and a barbecue master from Texas.

"Wiggs writes with compassion and insight... This is another winner." --Booklist

Jerome Sugar learned the art of baking in his grandma's bakery, also called Sugar, on historic Perdita Street in San Francisco. He supplies baked goods to the Lost and Found Bookshop across the street.

When the restaurant that shares his commercial kitchen loses its longtime tenant, a newcomer moves in: Margot Salton, a barbecue master from Texas.

Margot isn't exactly on the run, but she needs a fresh start. She's taken care of herself her whole life, pulling herself up by her fingernails to recover from trauma, and her dream has been to open a restaurant somewhere far, far from Texas. The shared kitchen with Jerome's Sugar bakery is the perfect setup: a state-of-the-art kitchen and a vibrant neighborhood popular with tourists and locals.

Margot instantly takes to Jerome's mother, the lively, opinionated Ida. The older woman proves to be a good mentor, and Margot is drawn to Jerome. Despite their different backgrounds their attraction is powerful--even though Jerome worries that Margot will simply move on from him once she's found some peace and stability. But just as she starts to relax into a happy new future, Margot's past in Texas comes back to haunt her...

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The unexpected death of Margie Salinas' mother left her alone at 16 with no one but Del, her mother's live-in boyfriend. When Del starts to give her uncomfortable looks, Margie flees and is lucky to find refuge with a couple who runs a barbecue restaurant in Texas. Margie, using her mother's recipes, sees a future for herself as a chef until something traumatic occurs. Ten years later, Margie is now Margot Salton and about to open her own barbecue restaurant in San Francisco. Margot's restaurant, Salt, shares a commercial kitchen with Sugar, the bakery next door. Margot soon grows close to Sugar's owner, Ida, and her handsome son, Jerome. Just as her romance with Jerome is heating up, Margot finds that no matter how fast you run, your past will find you. Wiggs (The Lost and Found Bookshop, 2020) writes with compassion and insight on some challenging topics, including abortion, racism, prison reform, and sexual assault. Margot is a fighter, and readers will be rooting for her to succeed; her romance with Jerome is sweet and believable, as is a secondary second-chance romance for Ida. This is another winner from Wiggs."
