Thank you to Zondervan Thomas Nelson and Litfuse for a copy of this fabulous novel. I received this novel in exchange for an honest review. This is Betsy St. Amant’s debut with All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes. What could possibly be better than a little romance and some baking?
Kat Varland and Lucas Brennan have been good friends for a long time. She is a baker at her aunt’s cupcake shop. You would think she would be ecstatic to be doing something she loves. The only problem is the shop requires a chocolate, strawberry or vanilla menu and no deviations. So Kat likes to experiment at home with Lucas. She also does not get a lot of respect from her family. Can Lucas change all of this by signing Kat up for Cupcake Combat a reality television show? Will he get the desired results from actually being on the show? What will Kat learn about herself through this experience?
I had to stay up late to see how this novel ended. Was it worth the wait yes! I stayed up to see how Kat would fare in each round. I would not have had a satisfying rest otherwise. What initially appealed to me about this novel is a little romance with a little baking, and a great competition. The author has a great plot twist she uses a reality television competition to extract the true feelings of her characters Kat and Lucas.
Many of the questions that Kat asks herself in this novel I have asked myself on occasion. The only part that wasn’t my favorite but added to the story was the constant hesitancy between Lucas and Kat. I could very much identify with her character because I have a similar background.
This read is fun, fun, fun! Did I say it was fun and enjoyable! I think I am ready to bake some cupcakes who would like to join me?
