Technical sheet

Bar Harbor Holiday
Book 1 : The Magic Ingredient

Author : Lindy Miller

Number of pages : 275

Publication date : October 13th 2020

Publisher : Rosewind Books

The end of summer is approaching, but even at the height of Bar Harbor’s tourist season, Eve Silver is having a hard time keeping enough dough in the bank to sustain the family bakery. Her only hope of paying past due bills is to win the catering bid for the town’s upcoming Harvest Happening festival. Otherwise, it’ll be lights out for Mount Desserts by Christmas.

Widower Jeff Perry is moving with his twelve-year-old daughter, Candy, from Manhattan to Maine with one goal: starting over. When sparks fly between Jeff and Eve as the town readies for the annual harvest festival, Candy wishes she had a love potion to help her dad fall in love again.

Will Eve be able to save Mount Desserts—and open her heart to Jeff—by the most bewitching night of the year? It’ll take a lot of love, a little bit of luck … and just a pinch of magic.

My Review
It was the title that initially intrigued me. After reading the synopsis, I wanted to read this story.
The story takes place in a small town in Maine, Bar Harbor, and revolves primarily around the Mount Dessert bakery. I have had my mouth watering more than once.
The narration is made from three different points of view by the most important characters: Eve, Jeff and Candace. The characters are endearing and for the first time I liked them all. I admit that Doris is a bit annoying. Everyone faces challenges but it's by working together that things move forward.
The story is fluid and the pages flow quite easily. It took me a few days to finish it between my shifts. I found only two words that I didn't understand (I'm French) but it help me to learn more English words.
I am delighted to discover Lindy Miller's pen with a great story that goes well with the season. It's heart touching with a pinch of magic and pleasant to read. I will follow her future publications and I'm waiting for the next book in the series.
Rating : 9,5/10


Lindy Miller is an author of feel-good love stories that are full of sweet moments and happy endings. She believes the best time to fall in love is during the holidays, preferably over a cup of warm tea or a delicious vegan pastry - two things she can't get enough of.

A free spirit, Lindy loves to travel and has a soft spot for Bar Harbor, Maine though she grew up at home in the South. She is married to her childhood sweetheart and bakes as often as she can for her husband, son, and pets - especially her golden retriever, Finn, who has a tendency to show up in her stories (and her Instagram!)
