      The conclusion of the Bread Alone series was a quick enjoyable summer read. So glad that I finally found it because the character Wyn Morrison has stayed with me since I read the first book. Hope there's another one in the future.

      Baker's BluesByJudith Ryan HendricksWhat it's all aboutWyn is a bakere has been an essential character in Bread Alone, The Baker's Apprentice and now Baker's Blues. Wyn is magical to mee is serious, she is a survivor, she thinks deeply, and she loves fully. Macher husband much as I wanted to appreciate himI could not. He is flawed and suffering from a deep depression and doesn't seem to care that he is first. He shuts out Wyntally. SoMac is depressed and not enamored with Wyn any more. Wyn choos [...]

      I really enjoyed the first two books in this series, light and entertaining. This third installment opens up approx. 10years after the end of book two and a character had been changed so drastically that I was left feeling like I missed a book or two in the series and a bit disorientated and heartbroken. After reading a few reviews I kept going, if for nothing else but to find out how Wyn's life turns out. The story line is flushed out and answers all my questions, but I was still left a little [...]

      I loved this book, the third in a trilogy of Judith Ryan Hendricks' "Bread Alone" series. I didn't want it to end, wanting to know more and more about the main character, Wyn, and where life's journey would take her next. Maybe Judith will write more for us?? I highly recommend this book, and especially if you read the first two novels in advance, so you'll really know Wyn. The first one is "Bread Alone" and the second is "The Baker's Apprentice."

    • Paula says:

      Finally! Have waited forever to read another Judi Hendricks book and the wait is over. So glad to read the final book in this trilogy and it's very good. Will really miss the series. Can't wait for your next book!

    • Kimberly Pearson says:

      You know when you read a book and finish it and feel like you NEED more of those characters? That is how I read the first book in this series. And I was ecstatic to find that there were 2 more to be read! I am quite familiar with most of the setting of the Baker trilogy.Seattle, Orcas Island and L.A which was appealing, but Wyn became a character I just cared about in a very personal way. I'll admit, that there were times wading through all 3 books that I started to think "Oh my God, another pro [...]

      Baker's Blues sat on the shelf, waiting patiently for me to re-read the first two books that Judi wrote about Wyn. I liked them even MORE the second time around and felt that Wyn developed deeper for me, as did Mac.Baker's Blues, to me, is the frosting on the scone/cake/cookie. Judi writes with great detail in every part of her story, including depression which seems to be one of those topics you discuss in private, whispering. And there was no 'neat and tidy' end to Baker's Blues, but a sense t [...]

      Favorite quote: It's too complicated. It's like some beautiful, intricate machine. You take it apart, some little pieces gets lost, and when you try to put it back together, it never works like it did before.This is the third book in this series. Bread Alone was the first and I just loved it. This series is smart women's fiction. The dialog is sharp and the story line unpredictable. I would love it if another book in the series is written.

    • Amanda says:

      A bittersweet end to Wynter's story. Although, as I think about it, it's not the end. It is only the end of the part of the story called The Mac Years. I like to think about Wynter, Charles, Taylor, MC, and all these folks living long, interesting lives full of good bread.I love these characters.

    • Martha says:

      Interesting and easy read. It was a little confusing as it switched point of views, but the premise of the story that sometimes even divorce does not stop love for another person. You still care and are involved in their life when it comes to their poor choices that broke up your marriage.

    • Randi Daeger says:

      This trilogy was so enjoyable to readp. if you like baking bread. I had to get the Baker's Blues from Kindle as it was not at our library.

    • Maria says:

      I had read the first and second books in the series therefore, I knew I had to read the last one to reach the final conclusion. The book starts out with an unexpected event, something that I was saddened to read as I was happy to hear what had happened with Mac and Wyn at the end of the second book. As I read on, I realized that the beginning was something that had happened in the present, while the majority of the book was a flashback to Mac and Wyn's lives, both together, and separate. I reall [...]

    • MandM says:

      I now wish I knew about and had read the previous books by Judith Hendricks. Although it didn't take away from my enjoyment of reading this one, I think it might have added some to it. Someone called it a great summer read and I agree with that. It was light in a way but covered some very serious topics. A slow start but then you're in it turning pages quickly to the end. I am not a foodie but enjoy how her love of bread worked it's way nicely into the story.

    • Jamie Patterson says:

      This book held me captive start to finish. The themes of family ties, life after divorce, depression and death are never easy to struggle through, but the author handled them with exquisite care. I felt empathy for the characters and truly cared about what happened to them. Great escape, and for the foodies out there you will enjoy the bread recipes scattered through the book.

    • Sharon says:

      Was a bit disappointed in this book. Really loved the 1st book but felt this one was a bit disjointed and a little hard to follow. Kept feeling I'd missed a book.

    • Deb says:

      udith Ryan Hendrick's first book (and the first book in this series following Wynter (Wyn) Morrison), Bread Alone was one of my first forays into the world of foodie fiction. I quickly devoured it, waited for the followup--The Baker's Apprentice, and also scooped up her other two books (not in the series) Isabel's Daughter and The Laws of Harmony. In the years in between, I would think about these books and look to see if the author had written another. It was a LONG six years of being disappoin [...]

      Originally posted on: peekingbetweenthepagesEven before I began blogging I discovered Judi Hendricks and the first book in this series called Bread Alone and I loved it and then came The Baker’s Apprentice which I equally loved. I have waited a long time for another book in this series and it’s here! It’s called Baker’s Blues and it’s a wonderful book that touched my heart. Judi has a warm style of writing – much like the thought of warm bread out of the oven with lots of butter slat [...]

    • Maggie says:

      I loved the Bread Alone series! How Judi Hendricks weaves her tale of Wyn is brilliant through the course of the three books. Her style of writing is one that I enjoyed immensely. Her attention to detail was incredible and made the book all that much more brilliant. You become that much closer to the character when the detail is presented in this way. As I turned the last page I was wishing there was another book to follow this one, but this was the end of the road it seems. This series was my f [...]

      BAKER’S BLUES (Chien Bleu Press) is the third book in Judith Ryan Hendrick’s, Bread Alone Trilogy. Wyn Morrison is back and this time, usually a 5am phone call means problems at her bakery—equipment trouble or a first shift employee is calling in sick. But the news she receives this July morning is anything but expected.Mac, her ex-husband, is dead. If you’ve read BREAD ALONE or THE BAKER’S APPRENTICE, you know Wyn’s ex, Mac, and if you haven’t, you quickly will. Ineligible for wid [...]

    • Patty says:

      I did not realize that this was the finale book of a trilogy when I decided to read it. I don’t think it would have changed my mind any to have known that in advance and the book stands alone just fine – I didn’t feel lost or like I was missing any information. The book opens with the funeral of Wyn’s ex husband although I could tell from the beginning that there was a lot unreserved between the two of them and between Wyn and her stepdaughter.This is really a book about relationships an [...]

    • Marcia Rodgers says:

      When I started this book, I was a little afraid it would be a "chick lit" book like many I had read before - fun, but with a limited lasting message. I am happy to say that I was wrong. This book asked me to delve deeper in order to understand the characters and their actions and interactions. (But it still provided enough detail about baking bread to satisfy my desire for some "foodie" information!)Although I didn't realize it at the time I started this book, it forced me to start thinking abou [...]

    • pianogal says:

      I hated this book. And I'm going to talk about potential spoilers here - so if you care, stop reading.Let me start by asking something: why the hell did you take 2 books to build up a relationship in order to tear it apart in this one? Really? And you started with Mac's death and then we had to go through his descent into depression? Ugh ugh and double ugh. Hendricks is a good writer, but if she wanted to explore depression, she should have used new characters and not wrecked these. This book wa [...]

    • Elizabeth(Thoughts From an Evil Overlord) says:

      I loved Baker's Blues, the third book in the Bread Alone trilogy, which has followed Wyn Morrison from a depressed divorcee hiding out as a baker's assistant in Seattle to a bakery owner in The Baker's Apprentice and now the owner of a hugely successful Los Angeles bakery in Baker's Blues. In The Baker's Apprentice readers and Wyn meet Mac a wandering literati, who is the recently deceased ex-husband in the opening of this newest installment.I don't usually say that books need to be read in orde [...]

    • Terry says:

      I have devoured all of Judi Hendricks' books and hope she is busy writing another one! She is very descriptive and I find her characters and situations realistic. In this story, I felt as if I were Wyn Morrison even though I'm not a baker and I haven't dealt with a depressed spouse. But I think all of us on some level have experienced depression and Ms. Hendricks made me feel like I could relate to the rollercoaster that living with a depressed person is.In the first chapter, we learn that Wyn's [...]

    • Kristin (Kritters Ramblings) says:

      Check out the full review at Kritters RamblingsA bakery in Los Angeles with a baker who's personal life implodes and she must take a break from the bakery to handle it all. Wyn was a great character and the first few chapters showed the present day as she finds out that her ex husband and dies, but then the book quickly goes into the past and into their relationship as she reflects on how things went down hill and if maybe she could have made different choices.This was for me the big theme. You [...]

    • P.D.R. Lindsay says:

      You would never know this novel was part of a series if you didn't check the reviews and see what other people have written. As a story it stands well on its own.Hendricks has a nice easy style, keeps her words simple and gives the reader a plain tale well told.For all that the plot revolves around a marriage break up, a death and the problems of living with someone with clinical depression, it is not a depressing book. The characters are likeable and understandable. They have that 3D 'reality' [...]

    • Retha Cameron says:

      I loved this trilogy of books by Judith Ryan Hendricks. I won Baker's Blues in a giveay and after realizing it was the last book of 3, I ordered the other 2 and read them first. I am glad that I did they were truly worth the money. With the first two books, Bread Alone and The Baker's Apprentice, I found myself unable to put them down and I read them rather quickly. This last book I found myself reading slowly and having to put it down for a while and come back to it several times. It wasn't th [...]

    • Sherrie says:

      This is the 3rd book of this series. I'm not sure if it will the last. The first book, Bread Alone introduces you to Winter. She's living in Seattle and trying to find her life after a divorce. Book 2 is The Baker's Apprentice and introduces you to Winter and Mac as a couple. You can see my reviews by clicking on the titles of the books. Book 3 is about Winter and Mac married and their life. I can't say too much about this as it will give away the story line. I really enjoyed reading this series [...]

    • Sue Marie says:

      I read the first two books in this trilogy when they were first published so I had forgotten many of the characters and backstories. I don't remember the first two books being as dark and serious as this book. However, I thought the themes explored were worthy of the tone. This book is about marriage, and friendship, and connections. It is about depression and the effects it can have on an individual, a spouse, a marriage, and other relationships.It is told from the first person viewpoint of Wyn [...]

    • Tracy says:

      Less baking than I thought, this novel follows Wynter to LA where she is about ten years after she left Seattle following the closing of the Queen Street Bakery. She now owns the Bread Maven and is divorced from Mac. The story goes back in time to how their relationship fell apart and how he died. Very different from the first two novels and my least favorite of three, but still a reasonably compelling story.
