What can I say? The moment I saw this one, it spoke right to my Italian heritage. I mean, you've got a combination history of the bakery, sweets to satisfy your sugar craving, and a look into the la cucina of one loud, boisterous Italian family (hmm, some of this may be a bit familiar...). Look for the review this December as well as your chance to win a copy...in the mean time, be sure to check out the main site to enter for a chance to see Buddy while he's out on tour!

Already read the first chapter when it arrived and I must say....I think this one is going to be rather good! Scheduled release date for this title is April 5th, 2011.
Okay so perhaps "received" is not the right word....more like arrived, sort of. This was all that remained of a lovely letter and packet of bookmarks (for future giveaways) from the folks over at TLT Publishing. *SIGH* Thanks for trying guys....unfortunately the goat at my local USPS office was extremely hungry and bookmarks were his craving of choice. *grr*
