Falling in Love with Emma by @PamBinder183 is a Fall Into Bookathon pick #romance #giveaway

Title: Falling in Love with Emma

Author: Pam Binder

Genre: Romance/Time Travel

Book Blurb:

Ever since the sudden death of her mother left Emma in charge of caring for her grandmother and the family’s bakery, she has survived by rejecting change. The last thing she wants is an ex-boyfriend with commitment issues. But while making a delivery to the matchmaker sisters’ café, Emma opens a door and is transported to eighteenth-century France, on the eve of the country’s revolution.

Björn has made a mess of things. He returned from fishing in Alaska believing his relationship with Emma would go back to the way things were, only to have Emma smash a pie in his face. But when Björn learns where she is, he leaps at the chance to save the woman he loves, even if she wants nothing to do with him.


Emma stood over a batch of cooled sugar cookies and positioned an image of a couple about to kiss over the first in the row. Designing the image and transferring it onto edible sugar sheet paper was the easy part. She’d used the technique before, with her mother’s designs. The problem was that she couldn’t capture the couple. Something didn’t look right. The couple looked like they were fighting instead of on the verge of kissing each other. Focus, she told herself. You can do this. She anchored her elbows on her work table, holding the piping bag filled with white frosting, and outlined the heart with shell-like swirls.

“Hello, Emma.” Startled by the male voice, she pressed too hard on her pastry tube and a big glob of frosting plopped onto the center of the cookie, completely obliterating the faces of the man and woman. She’d recognized Björn’s voice instantly. One minute she’d been daydreaming about him, and the next he’d appeared as though her thoughts had conjured him out of thin air.

His voice, deep and rich, filled the Boulangerie and flowed toward her like warm caramel. Her heart sped up a notch. Ten notches, if she were being honest.

Emma patted her hair into place, feeling the butterflies in her stomach that awakened whenever Björn was around. Remember, he just wants to be friends.

What’s your favorite thing about the Fall season:

Everything! The autumn colors of pumpkin orange and firelight red. I love the cooler Fall days, and crisp nights that make you want to cuddle by a fire with a good book, or someone you love.

What inspired you to write this story:

My husband and I were friends, until we realized that our feelings ran deeper. I wanted to write a story that explored the importance of friendship in a relationship and that sometimes – friendship can lead to love.
