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.

Author Guest Post

Hi, everyone! I found the challenge to introduce How Sweet It Is via a news article to be super fun! I hope you enjoy getting a small glimpse into the beginnings of Robin and Sammy’s story. Welcome back to Deep Haven. 

Deep Haven Herald 

Deep Haven Welcomes Pastry Chef Home 

by Ree Turnquist 

Deep Haven’s own, Robin Fox, is leaving the glamor of her life in Paris to work at Fox bakery here on Lake Superior’s North Shore. After a health scare, the owners of Fox Bakery, Jim and Elaine Fox, are taking a well deserved sabbatical on the sands of a Florida beach. Granddaughter and famed pastry chef, Robin, will be reining over their kitchen in their absence. Jim and Elaine expect to be gone for six weeks. 

“We trust Robin will continue to uphold the quality Fox Bakery is known for,” Elaine Fox said. “Locals can expect the same breads on the same schedule as always.” 

When asked if Fox Bakery would consider adding cakes to their menu Fox said, “Robin has a flair for the dramatic, but I don’t think she will change the menu much. We’ve asked her just to maintain status quo while we are away.”  

Jim Fox added “I’m sure Robin’s time at home will be quiet compared to her life in Paris. She will have plenty of time to reignite old friendships.”  

As Deep Haven’s only bread bakery, Fox Bakery supplies many of our citizens with their favorites each week. Mid-morning coffee breaks would not be the same without their famous walnut raisin loaf, and many children beg for their cinnamon rolls every Saturday morning. 

“Robin Fox is coming home?” Hometown hero and handyman, Sammy Johnson said. “Interesting. She was my lab partner in high school. I’ll have to stop by and tell her hello.” 

“I will enjoy my time here and seeing old friends again, but I don’t think I’ll be home long,” Robin Fox told this reporter. “I’m hoping to get back to Paris shortly after Grandpa and Grandma come home from Florida.” 

Fox’s brothers, Grayson and Oliver, were unavailable for comment. 

Welcome home, Robin. Deep Haven looks forward to your pastry creations.
