For What It's Worth

One of my goals for the new year is to read more. I know, it's kind of a selfish goal, but I love to read and don't allow myself to indulge in a good book nearly as often as I'd like. Part of the problem is that when I find a great book, I can't put it down. That was definitely the case with my first book of the year. I started For What It's Worth last night and finished it this morning. It was so, so good! I didn't want it to end. (I posted the cute book trailer back here.)

In a nutshell, For What It's Worth is the story of Abby Benson who, through a generous inheritance from her favorite aunt, realizes her dream of opening a bakery selling wedding cakes. Her pricing scheme - allowing her customers to pay her according to what they think the cake is worth - draws a lot of attention because it is so unconventional. She finds love while getting her bakery set up and business is booming from the start. She seems to have everything going for her, but is it too good to be true? What is success really worth?

As much as I hate suspense, I'm going to make you read it to find out. I'm pretty sure you'll thank me in the end.

I'm blessed to call Karey White my friend, but I know I'd love this book even if I'd never gone out to lunch with the author. :)
