How to Bake the Perfect Apple Pie by Gina Henning **Blog Tour - Guest Post, Review & Giveaway**

Hey Everyone!

I'd like to introduce you to Gina Henning, who is on tour with her latest novel, How to Bake the Perfect Apple Pie.

Gina Henning currently resides where bluebonnets line the highways in the spring, but she prefers the rock flower anemone from under the sea. Above the ocean's surface Gina likes to dance with her three boys and travel to exotic places like the grocery store with her husband. Her pooch Schatzi is a mix between German Shepherd and possibly pig. One of Gina's favorite pastimes is running. She recently completed her one-and-done marathon. At the end of the day her glass of wine is always half-full.

Lauren’s Top Five Tips on How to Deal with a Long Distance Relationship

In How to Bake the Perfect Apple Pie, Lauren Hauser struggles with the difficulties of a long distance relationship. Here are her top five tips:

1. Don’t cry every day. It creates puffy eyes… which you definitely do not want if you will be partaking in a video call.

2. Be positive that soon there will be an ending to the long distance and you and your partner will be living together.

3. Go out with your friends and have fun.

4. Focus your extra time on your job and achieving the next level of personal success.

5. Plan fun things to do when you are together, so no moment is wasted…

or maybe you don’t need to worry about that...maybe you won’t even leave the house, when you’re together.

No matter how tough things get, just remember not to give up.


How to Bake the Perfect Apple Pie by Gina Henning

A scrumptious pie. A long distance guy. 4th of July fireworks guaranteed.
Lauren Hauser has it all…nearly. With a shiny new job and sparkly new engagement ring on her finger, the only thing she’s missing is her gorgeous new fiancĂ© by her side. Should she be worried? Jack’s kisses are as sizzling as always and, sure, long distance is hard but, she and Jack are solid, right?
Of course the stress of planning a wedding—or not—is nothing compared to the stress of baking an apple pie. Because it’s not just any apple pie that Lauren must bake for the 4th of July contest; it’s her grandmother’s famous, award-winning apple pie! Yet Lauren is determined to make this pie her own and a little apple pie should be no problem for the Hauser clan dessert queen…!
But with her new job taking up so much time, a prize pie to perfect and the growing distance between her and Jack, Lauren begins to wonder if she can really have it all… Only one things for sure, there’ll be fireworks this 4th of July!

Hey! Here's my review.

This is the third book in the Home for the Holidays series. I have read the second book and enjoyed this one even more.

Jack and Lauren met in book one then got engaged in book two. In book three they are trying to manage a long distance relationship and plan their future together. I really related to this book as I was in a long distance relationship for a year before I quit my job and moved interstate to be with a man. I just hope Jack and Lauren's relationship turns out better than mine did!

This is a fun light read, perfect for a lazy Sunday with a cuppa and a slice of apple pie.

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
