Can't-Wait Wednesday #6: Buns (Hudson Valley #3) by Alice Clayton

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.   My pick this week is one that I have been anxiously awaiting a cover for so that I could finally share it as my Wednesday pick!  It won't come out until a couple months after I get to meet the author at Apollycon, but that's okay.  I'll be able to gush to her about how excited I am for it!  I first discovered this author with her book Nuts, and I picked it up because I loved the cover.  It's so funny.  And when I listened to it, I loved it.  And then the book after it, Cream of the Crop, and from there on, I was hooked on her books.  Anyway, here is the blurb from Goodreads:

 Clara Morgan is living the dream, if you can call rebranding hotels that are desperate for a new life and running any kind of marathon a dream. Which she does. But the career she loves and the endurance races that keep her adrenaline pumping have kept her too busy to put down any roots. Growing up in foster care, she’s never been able to establish traditions of her own, which may be why she’s fascinated by the rituals that generations-old family resorts are known for. She’s especially interested in the Bryant Mountain House, and not just for their secret recipe for the yummy, gooey, can’t-get-enough-of Hot Cross Buns….

Archie Bryant, the man with the Buns, is fifth generation and one-day-owner of the charming yet run-down Bryant Mountain House in Bailey Falls, New York. He’s determined to save his family’s legacy from the wrecking ball the old-fashioned way—by gritting his teeth and doing what needs to be done. There’s no way Archie will be influenced by the new hotel branding expert his father brought in to turn one hundred and fifty years of tradition on its head just to attract a faster, younger, slicker crowd. But when some of Clara’s ideas start bringing in new, paying customers, Archie can’t deny that she may have just given him a shot at keeping his resort open.

It’s sticky, it’s messy, it’s sweet, it’s Buns.

I love this town, these characters so much.  I can't wait to get back into this story.  Although, I think it will be the last one in the series, and I'm going to miss them all so much!  

What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?
