Review: Salt and Sugar by Rebecca Carvalho

There is something so charming about romance and food, don’t you think? Perhaps I was so drawn to Rebecca Carvalho’s Salt and Sugar. This YA novel has a bit of a twist in that it is both romance and a retelling of Romeo and Juliet – bakery style. Continue reading
