“I thoroughly enjoyed this story even if I always wanted to go to the kitchen and make the recipes at the beginning of each chapter. So my recipe for having a good time is to pick up a copy of The Bachelor Preferred Pastry, settle back and have a sweet time.” — Writers Unlimited
“The Bachelor Preferred Pastry is absolutely enchanting. Hilarious scenes make this one fun book to read while at the same time the serious side of life is dealt with effectively, proving once again that Shirley Jump is a true culinary artist.
“Using comedy to showcase her message, Shirley Jump teaches us a powerful lesson in being true to ourselves. In many ways this is a story about dreams, but whose dream is the real question.

Her Frog Prince
This time I’m making a match for my old school chum–with the man she deserves!
If there’s ever a socialite who needed her comeuppance, it’s personal consultant Parris Hammond. Lucky for me, scruffy but sexy marine biologist Bradford Smith is just the man to give it to her. (He’s already learned the only way to tame this shrew is to kiss her speechless!) And now that he’s bought a makeover from her, the barbs–and sparks–are flying! Parris knows this frog is more man than she’s ever met…but can he truly be her prince?
Still a matchmaker,
