She hid secret messages in frosting, thinking no one would notice.
Abby Tyler welcomes you to the witty, well-meaning busybodies of Applebottom, Missouri, where the community takes its pies — and its matchmaking — very seriously.
When Sandy Miller emerges from her shack on the edge of town after eighteen years, she finds a job making tea cakes for a little shop on Town Square.
But then everyone starts spotting secret words of love and longing on her cakes.
Andrew McCallister is the first to admit that he never got over Sandy Miller when she dropped out of high school and disappeared. But now she’s back.
He just has to get the guts to talk to her.
When the town summons the pair to a meeting to plan the school’s centennial bash, Andrew and Sandy discover they are the only two members of the committee. As they attempt to rekindle the long-lost flame, Sandy realizes her messages have been seen by the town, and maybe she doesn't regret them after all.

Read an Excerpt
When Andrew McAllister walked in the door of Tea for Two, Sandy knew something had gone horribly, terribly wrong.
She got so startled by the unexpected arrival of her longtime crush, that she fumbled her brush and accidentally stabbed the side of the wedding cake she was decorating.
Why was Andrew here? The sly look on her boss’s face told her the answer.
Betty had seen the secret notes in the frosting.
Oh, Sandy wished she hadn’t done it.
But maybe, just maybe she could be braver now than when she was in high school, and the two of them could figure out a way to make up for the time they had lost.
If he wanted that.
When his blue eyes met hers, she thought that maybe he did.
Perhaps she didn’t regret the frosting after all.
