You can find my most recent author interview over at Dead Darlings.
Louise Miller’s delightful debut novel, The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living, follows pastry chef Olivia Rawlings from Boston to idyllic Guthrie, Vermont following a workplace accident precipitated by a flambé dessert. Olivia’s life in Guthrie takes an unexpected turn toward the pastoral when she gains employment at the Sugar Maple Inn under supervision of the censorious owner, Margaret Hurley.
What follows is a “soup-to-nuts treat,” according to Mameve Medwed. “This book comes with a warning: do not read while hungry,” advises Natasha Solomons, rightfully.
A professional pastry chef who lives and works in Boston, Louise received a scholarship to attend GrubStreet’s Novel Incubator program. She is an art school dropout, amateur flower gardener, old-time banjo player, obsessive moviegoer, and champion of old dogs.
Louise took time out recently from her launch to speak with Dead Darlings about her new release.
