The Icing on the Cake

I just finished reading The Icing on the Cake by Elodia Strain, and I just loved it! It is what you would consider chick lit. It is a hilarious, fresh story. Annabelle is funny and lovable. It starts as she goes out of her way to buy a particular cake for a company party to impress her boss who then gives her a big assignment she'd been hoping for. She meets handsome Isaac who always seems to catch her at her worst moments. He is assigned as the photographer for her writing assignment.

The big assignment is to interview a snobby chef at an exclusive restaurant. She fails miserably twice, one time almost catching the kitchen on fire. This is just one of the many scrapes Annabelle finds herself in. There are also some troublemakers that have it out for Annabelle. Despite all that seems to go wrong, she stays positive.

The writing is great with rich details that bring the story to life. Did I mention it was funny? Very funny. I laughed out loud many times. It is definitely one of those stay-up-until 2:00 in the morning until you finish reading kind of books. This is a wonderful novel for first-time author Elodia Strain. I can't wait to see more of her books.
