Day 71 – Don’t Call Me Cupcake by Tara Sheets
Books with magical elements might possibly be my favorite kind, and when this delightful book came out a couple years ago, I’ll admit I perked up….
Oh friends – if you like magical books too, then let me introduce you to the Holloway Girls (and their magical house, which is definitely a character too).
I will say that Cupcake and Butterflies (Book 3) are a little better than Petunia (Book 2) but they’re all delightful, especially the magical elements Sheets integrates into their characters and the plots.
Sheets is a pretty new author, but I read somewhere that her next book is associated with Jude Deveraux (who also blurbed this book, bravo Tara!), so this is an author on the rise! But I’m not surprised, because I thought this book was a great debut – clever, original and fun.
Hope you’ll give them a try!
Don’t Call Me Cupcake
“I loved this book! Beautifully written and the story has stayed with me.”
Most families have a favorite recipe or two, handed down through generations. The Holloway women are a little different. Emma Holloway, like her grandmother before her, bakes wishes into her delicious cupcakes, granting the recipient comfort, sweet dreams, or any number of good things. It’s a strange gift, but it brings only happiness. Until gorgeous, smooth-talking newcomer Hunter Kane strolls into her shop, Fairy Cakes—and Emma makes the mistake of selling him not one, but threeSweet Success cupcakes.
Hunter, it turns out, is opening a fancy new restaurant and bakery right on the waterfront—Emma’s competition. To make matters worse, the town committee has decided to split the upcoming summer festival contract between the two, forcing Emma to work with her nemesis. But she can’t afford to split her profits. The solution: create a recipe that will make Hunter leave town permanently.
The Holloway charms are powerful. But there are other kinds of magic in the world—like red-hot first kisses, secret glances, and the feeling that comes with falling truly, madly, inconveniently
in love . . .
