|Don’t you just love the cover of this book? I do. Yes Ma’am, I do. Pst – that’s my pillow and my plate and even my cake-laden silver fork!|
I bought The Coincidence of Coconut Cake for one reason. Ok, maybe two reasons, neither of which have anything to do with the contents of the book.
Hello. I bought it for the COCONUT CAKE on the cover!! That coconut cake sitting on a stack of newspapers because that’s precisely where I want my coconut cake. I know you’re with me on this. What’s worse? She’s written another one with a LEMON PIE on the cover. I figure I’ll eat the cake… then go for the pie. It was a tough call though.
|I took a class with the amazing Ms Anne Garvin (dark hair beauty in the middle) and LOVED it!! That’s me with the glasses on my head.|
Secondly, I bought it because I saw it on Bloom (a Facebook group) and Ms Reichert is a member of Ann Garvin’s Tall Poppy Writers, which means the book is going to be good. It’s not just a pretty face/cake/cover. Or maybe I should say that it’s MORE than a pretty cake/face/cover.
|I love all things black and white and CAKE.|
Once it was here and I read the blurbs on the cover and the words on the back cover (did you know you can find out about the contents of the book before you buy it by reading this schnitzel?! Who knew?!) I knew I was going to enjoy the story. So I’ve put it in my basket. When I get back to my tiny house on the farm Friday evening, this baby and I are going to spend some quality time together. (And then I’ll be hungry for coconut cake…) Plus, there is a Shindig on Sunday that is just begging for coconut cuppy cakes. I may have to create a coconutty cake recipe (maybe even a Paleo recipe!) just for this occasion. You know the drill.
