The Baker's Man

The Baker’s Man by Jennifer Moorman

A retelling of The Gingerbread Man for grown-ups- what?! I haven’t had this much fun reading a story in years- Moorman’s retelling hits all the right notes. I’m not much of a fantasy reader, but I do know the pain of watching what felt like everyone else get married while suffering heartbreak after heartbreak and sometimes wishing I could just build myself my perfect man (Spoiler-I did find an awesome one 💕). That’s exactly what Anna does.

Anna grew up hearing tales of how her grandmother “made” her grandfather, baked him up with some special sugar, and she always thought it was a sweet joke. But now that she’s running her grandmother’s bakery, she finds an old box filled with some peculiar sugary sandy stuff and a recipe. Heartbroken and a little tipsy, she decides to try it out, and her jaw hits the floor in the morning when a very handsome, very perfect Elijah is standing in her bakery. Did she really create a human being? Does she actually want him? He turns out to be so much more than she anticipated. Then one of Anna’s friends gets a hold of the magic sugar and things spiral out of control.

Fun, poignant, magical, and with a beautiful message about healing your own heart first so you can be ready to love, The Baker’s Man is an absolute delight, and completely recommended for lovers of romance with a touch of magic
