Let Them Eat Cake

Author: Sandra Byrd

Genre: Life

Series: French Twist

Number in series: 1st

My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5

Type: Fiction

Number of pages: Kindle

Time period: Present

My overall opinion: What fun to read this modern book by Sandra Byrd! Prior to this point, all I’d read were the first two books in her Ladies in Waiting series, both of which I greatly enjoyed – and I was delighted to find she was good at this as well. Let Them Eat Cake was sprinkled with delicious sounding recipes, but so many as to be obnoxious. It definitely kept me reading, and moved along at a steady pace. By the end of the first 100 pages, you will probably think you know where it’s going…surprise! You don’t. It ended without a conclusion…definitely need to read the other books in this series.

I've heard such good things about these books. If I ever get an e-reader, perhaps I'll read them. Until then, I've got way too many to work through. ;)

Thanks for the great review, Charity!

I don't technically have an e-reader...but anyone with a computer (or iPad or Surface or whatever) can get the free Kindle reading app. I got it for my Surface, and have enjoyed having it immensely -- gotten to read some books that I wanted to, but the library didn't have! :) But doesn't help me read all my blog tour books (which I still greatly prefer to have physical copies of).
