Christian Fiction

The Key To Love. Review.


Title: The Key to Love
Author: Betsy St. Amant
Publisher: Revell
Release Date: October 13, 2020
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Love doesn’t always look the way we expect

The only thing Bri Duval loves more than baking petit fours is romance. So much so that she’s created her own version of the famous Parisian love-lock wall at the bakery where she works in Story, Kansas. She never expects a video involving the wall to go viral–or for Trek Magazine to send travel writer Gerard Fortier to feature the bakery. He’s definitely handsome, but Bri has been holding out for an epic love story like the one her parents had–and that certainly will not include the love-scorning Gerard.

Just when it seems the Pastry Puff is poised for unprecedented success, a series of events threaten not just the bakery but the pedestal she’s kept her parents on all these years. Maybe Gerard is right about romance. Or maybe Bri’s recipe just needs to be tweaked.

Gerard wanted nothing to do with love. Bri was hoping for her prince to show up one day. And instead the grumpy Gerrald showed up. I admired how she held onto the thought that true love will find her one day despite her many disappointments.

This story was filled with enough humor to last me a life time. I loved the characters especially the sisters. Their matchmaking skills were stellar and the love-lock wall was just so sweet. Something I definitely want to see and experience one day. The quaint town of Story was amazing and filled with a lot of beautiful love stories.

Gerard and Bri made little to no sense together but through the author’s careful and skillful writing they were able to overcome the past and look forward to a future together filled with love. They had the past to leave behind and the future to hold onto. I loved reading how Bri’s impression of love was corrected in the book. Their relationship was one of growth. I loved reading how they spurred each other to be better. Yes, they were so much better together.

The faith element in this book was so beautifully woven in life changing ways. In so many ways the book reflected what love should be.

I received a copy of this book from Revell and this is my honest opinion.
