All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes cover

Synopsis:

Kat Varland has had enough of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry.

At twenty-six years old, Kat is still living in the shadows of her family in Bayou Bend, Louisiana. Still working shifts at her Aunt Maggie's bakery. Still wondering what to do with her passion for baking and her business degree. And still single.


But when Lucas Brannen, Kat's best friend, signs her up for a reality TV bake-off on CupcakeCombat, everything Kat ever wanted is suddenly dangled in front of her: creative license as a baker, recognition as a visionary . . . and a job at a famous bakery in New York.

As the competition heats up, Lucas realizes he might have made a huge mistake. As much as he wants the best for Kat, the only thing he wants for himself---her---is suddenly in danger of slipping away.

The bright lights of reality cooking wars and the chance at a successful career dazzle Kat's senses and Lucas is faced with a difficult choice: help his friend achieve her dreams . . . or sabotage her chances to keep her in Louisiana.


Review:

If you're looking for a charming, easy Fall read, that's perfect for reading curled up on a dreary day, this is the book! It is a modern romance, with a sweet Southern twist! You may find yourself craving a cupcake or two, early on in the book, and that craving might get worse as the book gets tot the end! Real life never has snappy comebacks and complete understanding, so in many ways the book is very realistic of friends who don't communicate fully, and have issues because of that. This is a Christian romance story, so it is very Pg-13, and how Kat and Lucas end up together is interesting to see. It is a quick and light read, that will leave you happy at the ending!
