The Ultimate Pi Day Party by Jackie Lau ~ a Review

by MK French

Josh Yu's father is a retired math teacher, so what brings him to Toronto is a Pi Day party. Pi Day is March 14 (because pi is 3.14) and Josh hopes to make a good impression with the party, so that he could have his father finally learn about his new tech company and he can repair the damage in their relationship. This brings him to Sarah Winters, who owns the shop "Happy As Pie" and wants to get into catering. Josh has no intention of it becoming more than that, but feelings seem to be catching.

The Ultimate Pi Day Party is the first book in the Baldwin Village series and is another adorable romance novel featuring an Asian main character in Toronto. We have the meet-cute and the fun trope of being forced to work together for a project. In this case, it's the Pi Day party Josh wants to throw. Of course, he and Sarah have an instant physical attraction (she literally thinks of him as "sex on a stick"), but she also has a rapid connection with Chloe and Valerie, who will be opening an ice cream shop near her pie shop. As much as she bemoans not having friends, she does have an easy camaraderie with her coworkers, so I would count them as her friends, too.

There are a few slapstick scenes as Josh and Sarah flirt and get to know each other, and the interactions between the two of them are actually adorably awkward. Both have their emotional issues: Josh wishes to have a real relationship with his father, who hasn't spoken to him in seventeen years, and Sarah wants to prove that her desire to own a bakery isn't a failure. We have great connections with their family members as well, and we reach a wonderful happily ever after for all of the people involved.
