My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a lovely easy read romance most suitable to be read with a glass of wine over Thanksgiving or just as easily as a beach read. Lauren gets a letter from her Grandmother with instructions on how to bake the family secret recipe for Pecan pie ready for Thanksgiving.
The recipe calls for only the best Pecans and they must be bought from Tibor’s Pecan Farm. This is a humorous tale told by Lauren who happily pokes fun at herself and her bad luck, as she tries to persuade another customer to share his hoard of Pecan’s when she arrives in time to find just one small pack left on the shelf and certainly not enough for Grandma’s recipe.
With Lauren’s bad luck continuing on the return journey she is in need of a serious rescue. Who can resist a damsel in distress? A sweet little romance with it’s share of fun characters.
The How to Bake the Perfect Pecan Pie Blog Tour runs from November 7th until November 18th, each day of the tour a different character will share their favorite recipe for Thanksgiving.

Brian Forrester’s Favorite Thanksgiving Recipe.
The back office at the Hauser home has been converted into a mini-video recording studio for each member of the Hauser family along with two special guests to share one of their favorite Thanksgiving recipes other than the pecan pie.
Hauser Family File: Brian Forrester is the husband of Megan and the brother-in-law of Lauren Hauser. Brian works in the insurance field but you would most likely find him roaming the aisles of Home Depot looking for inspiration on creating his latest gadget.
“Roll the tape.”
Brian meanders into the room. He’s wearing his Mr. Fix-it tool belt and has a hammer in his right hand. He squints his eyes at the camera and leans in to inspect the lens. He fiddles with a few of the buttons and makes his way to the couch.
“Here’s the thing, my mom used to always serve cranberry sauce from the can.” He bites his lip. “As a kid, this scared the crap out of me.” He throws open his hands. “I didn’t understand the lines of the sauce, it made no sense and I was afraid to eat it.” Brian blinks his eyes and shakes his head.
“My wife Megan is an excellent chef and like me she likes to improve things.” He nods his head. “My favorite recipe that she prepares for Thanksgiving is her cranberry relish.” Brian stands up and strides to the camera and turns it off.
Megan’s Cranberry Relish
2 pounds of fresh cranberries 1 cup sugar
¼ cup Grand Marnier liqueur 1 orange zested and juiced
Place all ingredients into pop and simmer on low heat until majority of cranberries have burst, stir continuously. Marinate in refrigerator for thirty minutes.
