Publisher's Summary

A high-powered Manhattan attorney finds love, purpose, and the promise of a simpler life in her grandmother's hometown.

Ellen Branford is going to fulfill her grandmother's dying wish - to find the hometown boy she once loved, and give him her last letter. Ellen leaves Manhattan and her Kennedy-esque fiancee for Beacon, Maine. What should be a one-day trip is quickly complicated when she almost drowns in the chilly bay and is saved by a local carpenter. The rescue turns Ellen into something of a local celebrity, which may or may not help her unravel the past her grandmother labored to keep hidden. As she learns about her grandmother and herself, it becomes clear that a 24-hour visit to Beacon may never be enough. The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Cafe is a warm and delicious debut about the power of a simpler life.

Blueberry Bakeshop

Blueberry Bakeshop was a really cute book. Refreshing, adorable and funny love story without the graphic sex that a lot of love stories have. I give this book 4 thumbs up.

Enjoyable from beginning to end!

Enjoyed the story, characters and of course the happy ending. Found myself laughing out loud re: the scenes at the local watering hole -The Antler. Wonderful descriptions of Maine. Look forward to more works by the author.

Best Book Ever

I listen to 3 books a week. This is the most enjoyable one I've ever listened to! The story , and the characters were also fantastic. When a book has Erin Bennett as the Narrator it's like icing on the cake !

Smelling the blueberry muffins

I saw the Hallmark rendition The Irrestible Blueberry Farm. It immediately became my favorite. Nicely done, though different, and I don’t think they ruined the original story.And, because I listen to books on audible, I wanted to know the authors original story -I will re-visit this book often as a dear friend! I liked the beginning very much and liked the epilogue and I liked the credits it’s always interesting to learn behind the scenes items, I especially like the references to the foods, the tiny recipes. The references were so vivid they made me want to get in the kitchen myself. thank you

Have you ever been to Maine?

I enjoyed the romance and bit of mystery involved but living in Maine all my life I found it hard to accept that the spring flowers summer flowers and fall flowers were all in bloom at the same time as well as the blueberries being ripe.
I just felt that there was not enough attention to detail

Not irresistible, but not off-putting.

I had no intentions of writing a review, but apparently neither has anyone else. So, just to throw something out there for this book, here's what I thought.

The book wasn't bad, but it wasn't necessarily good either. It was a middle of the road listen for me. I didn't feel the urge to listen, so it took some time for me to finish it. I wasn't overly connected with the characters, but I didnt dislike them either. I listened here and there during my commute and finally finished it so that I could free it up off my ipod.

The narrator wasn't my favorite; I wouldn't seek her out for future reads, but I wouldn't turn down a book she read either.

Really wanted to like this book

As a Maine native living in South Jersey, I usually enjoy stories which are set in my childhood state. However, this book just didn't FEEL like home. First, the narrator only gave the occasional word a "Maine" accent, as if people in Maine change accents in mid sentence. Second, the Maine residents were mostly portrayed as blue color and uneducated and the New Yorkers as snotty & over-educated, showing a lack of imagination. Nevertheless, this author has talent for dialogue and humorous situations, so I think she will write some great books in the future.
