Twenty-four year-old, Abby Benson has dreams of owning her own wedding cake shop. An inheritance from her aunt gives her the ability to make those dreams come true. She hires Dane, a handsome contractor, to help her get the bakery up and running and soon they’re moving toward their own happy ending.
Unsure what to charge for her cakes, Abby has a crazy idea to let the customer decide what they think their cake is worth. This plan has its ups and downs, but the novelty of the idea makes her a local celebrity. When she is interviewed on television about the unusual idea, business booms and Abby has cake adventures she never dreamed possible. But as her fame grows, Abby is swept up in a whirlwind that threatens everything she values. With the challenges that face her, will she be able to determine what is worth the most?

Praise for For What It's Worth
Reading Karey White’s books, like eating chocolate cake, is always satisfying and brings a smile to my face. For What It’s Worth is light, romantic, and delicious. It’s a great pleasure read. Sit down and get lost in the charming world of wedding cakes and love. As an added bonus, each chapter starts with a recipe, so it’s a novel and cookbook all in one. A fun read!

I just loved the book – loved it. Hated putting it down and hated finishing it. Karey White is my new Maeve Binchy, her writing as warm as the bakery her novel is set in. For What It’s Worth surprised me, made me smile, say “no” out loud in a public place. I love when a character feels like my sister. I didn’t want to finish it, so now I may try the recipes that began every chapter.

This book oozes charm, romance, and mouth-watering recipes. If you want to escape reality and curl up with a darling story, For What It’s Worth is the perfect fit. Thank you, Karey White!
—Rachael Anderson, author
This is a book worth every penny of the price. In the business of baking wedding cakes, every detail must be perfection, but this story remembers that real life is oh-so-messy. White’s clear and honest writing left me hungry for good food, a close family, and a little romance. A beautiful marriage of food, family, and faith.

Last week I finished the first draft of my latest novel. I'm excited about it and can't wait to get it finished and sent off.
Imagine revisions fifty years ago. You'd have to type an entirely new sheet of paper. If you revised a paragraph as many times as I do, trying out different sentence structures and different word options, the task would be arduous and wasteful.
Now imagine that I can cut and paste and play around with things as much as I want. If I don't like what I've done I can hit that little backward circle arrow (I'm sure it has a name, but I don't know it) and it can put me back where I was. I can easily correct a misspelled word or jump right in and add an entire descriptive paragraph. If I want to make Chad's hair a different color or add a cute, crooked smile, I can. (I really like Chad, by the way.)
A computer makes being a writer so much easier. Even with my down arrow that doesn't work and my "e" letter that's threatening to fall off at any moment, I'm thankful for my computer.
