THE LATE BLOOMERS’ CLUB– Pamela Dorman Books | On Sale July 17, 2018 | 9781101981238
Novelist Louise Miller returns to the sleepy fictional town of Guthrie, Vermont (the setting of her critically acclaimed debut The City Bakers’ Guide to Country Living 2016) to tell the story of two headstrong sisters, Nora and Kit Huckleberry. Nora, the older and more “responsible” sister has remained in Guthrie her entire life, taking over the family business after their parents passed away at a young age. Her sister, Kit, left Guthrie behind years ago to pursue her dreams as an aspiring filmmaker. After a tragic accident, the two sisters find out they stand to inherit the home and land of Peggy Johnson, the town’s beloved cake lady. When it comes to light that Peggy was in the process of selling her land to a big-box developer before her death, the two sisters find themselves at odds
As with her debut, Miller has yet again treated us to stunning visions of Vermont landscapes and mouthwatering descriptions of freshly baked goods and delicious desserts. Perfect for anyone charmed by the small town magic of Gilmore Girls.
I absolutely adored Miller’s first novel THE CITY BAKER’S GUIDE TO COUNTRY LIVING. It was witty and fun and filled with amazing baked goods. Now she’s back with yet another novel set in rural Vermont and filled with cakes and coffee.
