The Great Brownie Taste-off (The Yolanda's Yummery Series Book 1) - Lisa Maliga

The Great Brownie Taste-off (The Yolanda's Yummery Series Book 1)
Yolanda works at an animal shelter but she really wants her own bakery. Just reading about some of the ways she decorates her cupcakes make me very hungry but I think also they would look tooo pretty to eat.
Her friend gets her an interview at a gentleman's club where she ends up typing a letter-for the takeover of the cat shelter. She goes back the next day and makes a deal with the boss, her brownies vs the freeze and bake co. and if she wins the shelter stays.
Love that everybody in the book has a trade, a glassblower, a lotion maker, she bakes and I like how she improvises with healthier choices.
She has dreams that lead her to put in other ingredients to win the contest. Her boyfriend is part of the picture but not exclusively.
Liked how the book came out, not too much drama and easy to keep track of the characters. Happy to learn there are other books in this series. This book came with the brownie recipe!
