Book Snippets: Fluffy Books

I don't always want or need to write you a whole review. Sometimes I just want to talk about a book for a minute or two. So, I introduce you to the first Book Snippet.

Sometimes you just need to read something...fluffy. I used to hate this word - my dad would use it when asking why I preferred The Babysitter's Club to something more solid, preferably a classic. This past week, I had finished the amazing, but very heavy The Hours (Review coming later this week!). Then I started reading The Tiger's Wife, which is also dark. I just needed something easy - you know, girl solves mystery, girl juggles two boys, girl bakes cheesecake. I found my fix with this book:

It's the first book I have read by this author, but it's not the first in the series. To be quite honest, I picked it because I like cheesecake...and did I mention that these books have recipes? Sure, it's a little hard to believe that Hannah, the protagonist, can keep two such wonderful men waiting indefinitely for her to choose between them and it's a little hard to keep track of all of the delightful small town residents. But I wasn't looking to have my life changed, just for a quick read with a happy ending. 
So I'm off to dream of cheesecake.Yum. In the meantime friends, what is your favorite fluffy read?
