“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 fiancé 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!


The timer buzzes on my oven. I pop open the door and a delicious apple pie is staring back at me. I inhale. Wow, apple pie has got be one of the best scents ever. I take in another long whiff. Yum. I pull the pie out of the oven and set it on my countertop. I’m supposed to FaceTime with Jack at any minute. Tingles of excitement dance along my arms. I was hoping my pie would turn out and now I can show Jack that it has. He’ll probably want to hop on the next plane and feed it to me. Mmm…Jack and apple pie, the perfect dessert.

My phone vibrates from the counter. A text message from Jack flashes.

“Something came up at work. I’ll call you when I get home.”
