Honey D’Amourvell is looking for a fresh start. When her aunt dies, leaving Honey her shop on Sugarberry Island, Honey picks up and moves across the country in the hopes of opening her own shop, becoming a part of the island’s community, and maybe, just maybe, finding the sense of belonging she’s always wanted.

Unfortunately, Honey’s first day in Sugarberry is anything but sweet. Her car dies just as she gets onto the island and, what’s worse, she discovers that her aunt’s store has been leased to the owners of Babycakes and has been turned into a cupcake shop. Part of Honey wants to turn tail and run back to where she came from, but at the moment she’s trapped. Her luck begins to change when sexy mechanic Dylan Ross takes it upon himself to help her. As Honey begins to venture out of her self-induced isolation she finds that maybe she can have it all; a home, friends, a store, and even the love of one gorgeous, kindhearted mechanic.

Small town charm combined with endearing protagonists and a pitch-perfect romance makes Honey Pie an irresistible read. Donna Kauffman made me want to pick up and move to Sugarberry Island… But only if there’s a hero like Dylan waiting for me at the end of the journey ;)

Honey just about broke my heart. She’s a lovely person with a lot to offer, but she has a psychic gift which makes it nearly impossible for her to get close to people. She desperately wants to make friends and be a part of Sugarberry’s community and I wanted that for her. Though Dylan helps her with this in part, it’s Honey’s determination to emerge from her shell that gets her what she wants. And speaking of Dylan… Wow! He’s pretty much the perfect hero — generous, kind, and so sexy he’ll make you melt faster than chocolate on a hot summer’s day. There’s nothing not to love about Dylan. As a couple, he and Honey are fantastic and their love story makes me smile just thinking about it.

Honey Pie is the fourth book in the Cupcake Club series but it can easily be read as a standalone. The heroines from the first three books play at least a small role in Honey Pie, something that should please readers who’ve already enjoyed Sugar Rush, Sweet Stuff, and Babycakes. I started the Cupcake Club series with Honey Pie, but by the time I finished the book I was adding the rest of the series to my wish list. Honey Pie is an engaging, sweet story and I hope Ms. Kauffman has plans to write more Cupcake Club books.

I am a huge fan of Donna Kauffman and have read all of her books. I was thrilled when this one came out, but have been so disappointed. It is such a slow read and definitely not one of my favorites

    Donna Kauffman's latest edition of the Cupcake Club series is Honey Pie, a book about two seeming misfits who find one another. Honey has come from Oregon, following the death of her Aunt Bea whom she loved like a parent. Her old Volkswagen Beetle breaks down and she then becomes acquainted with Dylan, the town misfit. In reality, Dylan had a tough upbringing and has now gotten his life in order. He is almost immediately attracted to the somewhat bohemian Honey and spends a lot of time attempting to deny this attraction. While Dylan goes about getting the car repaired, Honey finds herself liking a town that seems to offer just what she missed in her childhood.

    This is a cute story but most readers will guess the outcome long before the epilogue. It seems a bit slow out of the starting gate but it is a delightful story which points out the need for second chances and going after what you have wanted and been denied. I liked the character of Dylan, who seemed to have a bit more insight than his counterpoint Honey. He dealt with issues as they came and would be a good role model for young adult males who have been through rough times themselves. The cohesion and acceptance of the small town population is a delight. Honey Pie gives the reader an easy afternoon in a favorite chair while author Kauffman gives us a feeling of good things yet to come.
