No Whisk No Reward (Donner Bakery #3) by Ellie Kay
How do you know if a risk is worth taking? If you knew, there wouldn’t be any risk.
Following a disastrous appearance on a televised baking show, Sophie Copeland is certain things can’t get any worse. Several calamities later, Sophie finds herself in Green Valley, Tennessee with no plan, no place to stay, and no prospects.
But at least she has a temporary seasonal arrangement with the famed Donner Bakery. And that’s something, right?
It’s not permanent, and it’s not a home, but it’s still something.
Enter Joel Barnes, a Green Valley mystery, wrapped in rumors, and a whispered connection to the local notorious biker gang. Joel’s got a name for being bad news, but he also has an apartment for rent.
Intrigued by the dichotomy of Joel’s reputation and sexy southern pull, Sophie can’t help but be tempted, even though she knows—given her (bad) luck—she should stay far, far away. . .
Yet as everyone knows, without risk, there’s no reward.

Sophie Copeland moves to Green Valley after her career took a very bad hit. Or more like fate brought her here after her car broke down while she was on her way to a friend.
She was on National TV when she froze on the spot. Humiliated and fired, now she’s here with no plan, just bad luck.
This is the 3rd book in the Pennyverse Romance, the story of Sophie and bad boy Joel.
Joel is the mysterious man with rumors of him all around town. He meets Sophie because he has a room to rent.
After she started a position on the Donner Bakery she stays here to see how things go. She’s drawn by Joel and wants to figure him out. Soon they become friends and risks might be taken.
There were some things that bugged me, like different characters from other already published books which were a bit different. I have read everything about the characters from Green Valley.
It also felt that Sophie and Joel could have more chemistry between them, and the character development to be more on point. I wanted to know more about them and always looked for character traits.
Since it’s the first book of Ellie Kay, I want to encourage her to write some more because I liked her story line. Sometimes, when I know the author is new to this, I try to read without focusing too much into details, even though everything is part of the book.
