They say the course of true love never runs smooth.
That’s nothing a magical cupcake can’t solve.
Buttercream. Vanilla. Fondant. Dark chocolate. Brown sugar. Molasses. Baking has always been my true love, but it wasn’t until my mother’s death, and the unexpected inheritance of Serendipity Gardens, that my bliss called me. Bittersweet. But Serendipity Gardens has more to offer than just a potential shopfront. An unusual recipe box left to me by a distant relative might be the key to unlocking my dreams.
Too bad the most powerful family in Chancellor has plans that could turn those dreams to ruins—literally.
Too bad the son of that powerful family is just the kind of guy I’ve been looking for.
I suppose being heir to the Hunter family’s Blushing Grape Winery should make me happy, but nothing could be further from the truth. With my mother gone, my father has taken me under his wing, and I despise everything about the way he does business. Sour grapes, indeed. Instead of raising money for charitable causes, my true passion, I’m chasing my father’s manifest destiny.
Too bad his dream includes paving paradise.
Too bad the property owner is the sweetest woman I’ve ever met.
The Cupcake Witch is a stand-alone sweet romance and book 2 of The Chancellor Fairy Tales series. (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review courtesy of YA Bound Book Tours.
This novella was adorable. I love anything that references food in books so this one was particularly up my alley. Towards the end there were a few moments where it got a bit cheesy, but overall I still enjoyed it. Julie and Horatio are not your run of the mill college kids and she’s struggling to find a way to break out of the mold of what is expected for you.
I am certainly going to continue the series as they come out as the blend of the romance and paranormal are beautifully blended. The main thing that was disappointing was that this wasn’t a full length book, but only a novella!
Warning: Contains some sexual content.
Rating: 5 stars!
