I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Audiobook Empire. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

She’s a baker without a kitchen. He’s got a double oven to spare. It’s a recipe for success, until his mother starts stirring up trouble....
Cassie Jordan has a sweet dream to open a bakery specializing in wedding cakes. The problem is, the Airstream trailer where she lives has a kitchen the size of a postage stamp, and her job as housekeeper for a vacation rental agency doesn’t pay enough for her to find other arrangements.
When the renters at one of the houses in her care cancel their stay, leaving the house empty and its top-of-the-line kitchen unused, who could blame her for seeing it as an opportunity? But Cassie’s unsavory plan starts to look like a mistake when the owner’s son shows up unannounced, catching her with her pants down - literally.
If Cassie can sweet-talk her way out of trouble, setting up her business might be a piece of cake. If not, it’s going to be a bitter setback....
The Icing on the Cake is a stand-alone novel in Linda Seed’s Otter Bluff small-town romance series.

This was an enjoyable listen.  The book is listed as a romantic comedy but I’m a hard person when it comes to tickling my funny bone.  I didn’t have a hard time knowing the point where I should be laughing but all I could do was snicker.  I’d like to think that our narrators tried their best, like a comic, but that didn’t help.

Ms. Paige and Mr. Baldree do a good job in telling me the tale of Cassie and Brian.  They helped me find both a new series and a new author.  They helped me getting to know the characters and had me wanting to visit the area that was created.  A narrator’s job is to help bring an author’s world to life and they succeeded here.

Our author does a good job in creating a secondary character that may have you thinking of someone in your own life.  Mr. Bladree helps us to feel the frustration that Brian is feeling about his situation.  Ms. Paige helps us to see Cassie’s own frustration about how some things were turning out.  Then we have the scenes that will keep you riveted until you finally know how things are going to end.  I look forward to see where this series is going.
