Cover Crush: The Heartbreak Bakery by A.R. Capetta
The Heartbreak Bakery by A.R. Capetta has such a fun cover and what a great concept! I love books about baking, cooking, food trucks, whatever, they are always a good time when you add food craft in there. The Heartbreak Bakery adds in more than just food craft, there is possibly some magic sprinkled in with the butter and sugar! If you are looking for agender main character, a trans love interest, a bit of magic, then you should probably preorder The Heartbreak Bakery for the October 12th release!

Teenage baker Syd sends ripples of heartbreak through Austin’s queer community when a batch of post-being-dumped brownies turns out to be magical—and makes everyone who eats them break up.
“What’s done is done.”
Unless, of course, it was done by my brownies. Then it’s getting undone.
Syd (no pronouns, please) has always dealt with big, hard-to-talk-about things by baking. Being dumped is no different, except now Syd is baking at the Proud Muffin, a queer bakery and community space in Austin. And everyone who eats Syd’s breakup brownies . . . breaks up. Even Vin and Alec, who own the Proud Muffin. And their breakup might take the bakery down with it. Being dumped is one thing; causing ripples of queer heartbreak through the community is another. But the cute bike delivery person, Harley (he or they, check the pronoun pin, it’s probably on the messenger bag), believes Syd about the magic baking. And Harley believes Syd’s magical baking can fix things, too—one recipe at a time.
