Can’t Wait Wednesday – ROSALINE PALMER TAKES THE CAKE by Alexis Hall
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is ROSALINE PALMER TAKES THE CAKE by Alexis Hall. I’m excited for this book because I just finally got around to reading her popular novel, Boyfriend Material, and I absolutely loved it. The fact that this one features a reality TV show about baking just sounds like so much fun!
ROSALINE PALMER TAKES THE CAKE by Alexis Hall
Publication Date: May 18, 2021 by Forever (Grand Central Publishing)
Fans of Casey McQuiston, Christina Lauren, and Abby Jimenez will love this scrumptious and sweet romantic comedy from the “dizzyingly talented writer” of Boyfriend Material (Entertainment Weekly)!
Following the recipe is the key to a successful bake. Rosaline Palmer has always lived by those rules—well, except for when she dropped out of college to raise her daughter, Amelie. Now, with a paycheck as useful as greaseproof paper and a house crumbling faster than biscuits in tea, she’s teetering on the edge of financial disaster. But where there’s a whisk there’s a way . . . and Rosaline has just landed a spot on the nation’s most beloved baking show.
Winning the prize money would give her daughter the life she deserves—and Rosaline is determined to stick to the instructions. However, more than collapsing trifles stand between Rosaline and sweet, sweet victory. Suave, well-educated, and parent-approved Alain Pope knows all the right moves to sweep her off her feet, but it’s shy electrician Harry Dobson who makes Rosaline question her long-held beliefs—about herself, her family, and her desires.
Rosaline fears falling for Harry is a guaranteed recipe for disaster. Yet as the competition—and the ovens—heat up, Rosaline starts to realize the most delicious bakes come from the heart.

Boyfriend Material was so good! I could kick myself for waiting so long to read it.
I love any book with food in it, and I seem to enjoy reading about baking shows even if I don’t like watching them. Great pick! My Wednesday post is in the link below.

Same here on the food books. I can’t get enough of them.
Alexis is killing it!
She totally is. 🙂
I want to read this one too. I LOVED Boyfriend Material, so I’m curious to read more by the author. Did you hear there will be a sequel for BM called Husband Material? I kept saying that should be the sequel’s title if she wrote one!
