Not every love story is a romance novel. For baker Jules Burns, it is the memory of his deceased husband. For Teddy Flores, a numbed-to-the-world accountant who accidentally stumbles into his bakery, it is a voyage into his deep connections to pleasure, to the world, and to his own heart. Sweet is also the story of how we tell stories—of what we expect and need from a love story. The narrator is on to you, Reader, and wants to give you a love story that doesn’t always fit the bill.
