For What It's Worth by Karey White
Contemporary inspirational romance
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Twenty-four year-old, Abby Benson has dreams of owning her own wedding cake shop. An inheritance from her aunt gives her the ability to make those dreams come true. She hires Dane, a handsome contractor, to help her get the bakery up and running and soon they’re moving toward their own happy ending.

Unsure what to charge for her cakes, Abby has a crazy idea to let the customer decide what they think their cake is worth. This plan has its ups and downs, but the novelty of the idea makes her a local celebrity. When she is interviewed on television about the unusual idea, business booms and Abby has cake adventures she never dreamed possible. But as her fame grows, Abby is swept up in a whirlwind that threatens everything she values. With the challenges that face her, will she be able to determine what is worth the most?

About the author:
Author Karey White

My thoughts:
For What It's Worth is a feel good book. Once started, one cannot stop smiling over Abby, the baker with a big heart. I enjoyed her sweet, clean romantic story. Watching her as she achieves her dream of opening up her own bakery and then falling for Dane, the carpenter who renovates her store, was predictable and I didn't mind one moment. Sometimes when we achieve our dreams, we realize everything involved with attaining what we want can become too much and Abby has to wonder if she did the right thing. Through prayer and family, Abby makes the right decision and I enjoyed every minute of it.
