About the Book
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.
The Review ★★★★☆
I saw this book jacket and just knew I had to read it. I didn’t know it was part of a series but it can be read on its own without you missing out on much.
The story is about Julie and Horatio, both have suffered the loss of a parent and are desperately trying to hold on to the things they are passionate about.
I really enjoyed reading this book, but it went by way too fast. I was desperately hoping for a bit of a slower pace so I could really enjoy getting to know the characters a little bit better.
I really liked Horatio and dare I say it, his sister- she would have been such an awesome character to get to know as I thought she was just so much more ballsy than Horatio was. I mean the confrontation with Horatio’s father gave a great indication of it all.
The book just shows what grief can sometimes do to a loved one, in the case of Horatio’s dad but even in our grief we should be careful not to push the ones we love away.
It was a fun light hearted read that had me smiling from ear to ear by the end of it. And it reminded me that you should never be afraid to do what you are most passionate about. I really loved the author’s writing style and how I was sucked into the story and wanting to get to know more about the people of Chancellor.
I hope the author does a bit more of a follow up as it would be great to see how Julie fares with the other witches in Chancellor. 4 magical stars from me.
