Kit Bellamy was raised on pie. Mamie Sue's Peanut Pies, to be exact, the family company her scheming brother-in-law sold out from under her. Now Kit needs a new recipe for her life--and sleepy Sugarberry Island is the first ingredient. Running mail-order cupcake business Babycakes is a chance to get her baking on again--until she meets tall, dark, and adorable lawyer Morgan Westlake. New to the island to raise his goddaughter, he's as mouthwatering as any of Kit's creations. It's just her luck that he's the spawn of the very law firm that helped crush her dreams. . .

Fortunately, Kit's new friends can assure her that Morgan is no typical Westlake--and that even lawyers, not to mention single dads, need romance. If Kit can just be persuaded to follow her appetite--and set another place at her holiday table--her sweetest dreams just might come true. . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Warm friendships and deep conversations form the backbone of Kaufmann’s third Cupcake Club romance. Kit Bellamy, who relocates to tiny Sugarberry Island to head up mail-order cupcakery Babycakes after her brother-in-law sells her family’s peanut pie business, becomes the newest member of the gossipy club. Morgan Westlake has arrived in town with his five-year-old niece, Lilly, to help her get to know her grandmother. Young Lilly also connects with others in the tiny Sugarberry community, most charmingly including the tattooed clerk at Cakes by the Cup, Babycakes’s parent company. Kit finds Morgan attractive, but his family link to the lawyers who helped destroy the business she loved makes her wary. The Cupcake Club members, inclined to romantic optimism after the events of Sugar Rush and Sweet Stuff, vehemently push Kit into pursuing Morgan despite her understandable reluctance to trust him or anyone; their nagging comes off as insensitive, even if it works out in the end, but series fans will probably forgive them. Agent: Karen Solem, Spencerhill Associates. (Nov.)

    Disappointed in this book!

    I was so looking forward to this book. Just could not get into it. So many typos! Very disappointed!

    Molten Chocolate…Cinnamon Spice…Gingerbread…Old-Fashioned Vanilla…You can’t stop at just one.
    And the women of the Cupcake Club love to indulge…
    Kit Bellamy was raised on pie. Mamie Sue’s Peanut Pies, to be exact, the family company her scheming brother-in-law sold out from under her. Now Kit needs a new recipe for her life—and sleepy Sugarberry Island is the first ingredient. Running mail-order cupcake business Babycakes is a chance to get her baking on again—until she meets tall, dark, and adorable lawyer Morgan Westlake. New to the island to raise his goddaughter, he’s as mouthwatering as any of Kit’s creations. It’s just her luck that he’s the spawn of the very law firm that helped crush her dreams…

    Fortunately, Kit’s new friends can assure her that Morgan is no typical Westlake—and that even lawyers, not to mention single dads, need romance. If Kit can just be persuaded to follow her appetite—and set another place at her holiday table—her sweetest dreams just might come true…



    Kit Bellamy has been royally shafted by the people who she trusted the most. Her spirit and a lot of her self respect has been torn to shreds and she knows in the deepest part of her heart that she let down not only the preceding three generations of Bellamy women, but also the people who worked for the family business. Who did this to her? Her sister and brother in law.

    Now she must hope that a new opportunity and new job in another state will allow her to find herself and rebuild her career and life.

    I love this series. Donna Kauffman has created an oasis where women and men can find a bit of rest to rebuild lives, souls, and even, just maybe find love.

    FTC Full Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book from the publisher who only asked for a fair and impartial review.

    This book is a heartfelt, warm story about a woman¿s journey to

    This book is a heartfelt, warm story about a woman’s journey to find love. Kit has suffered emotionally. She’s experienced loss and feels like her life is going nowhere. She decides to open a bakery, pouring all of her emotions in to a job she loves. When she runs in to the tall dark and handsome lawyer, Morgan, however, everything changes, and she’s caught up in the possibility of a romance.




    The development of the romance between Kit and Morgan is beautiful. The emotional obstacles that Kit must face are all too familiar, and as she works through them, Morgan’s ability to understand and his patience is romantic and very sweet. As the story goes on, their friends and family play the role of matchmaker, trying to encourage and convince the two that their relationship is worth all of the effort.




    Fun, loving and charming, this story set in the South, is a perfect romance for a night in. If you’re looking for a good book that will make you melt, pick this one up and fall in love.

    The Cupcake Club makes me want to pack my bags and head to south

    The Cupcake Club makes me want to pack my bags and head to southern Georgia.  Where the water is warm and the men are hot.

    Kit has lost everything, so she takes a chance on a position that a friend thinks she will be perfect for.  Turns out she is.  Kit jumps at the chance for a huge change in her life, but she really has nothing else to lose.  The only reservation she has is the other new person in town, Morgan Westlake.  He just happens to be related to the very people who helped ruin her life.  Can they live together in the same small community?  Morgan seems to think so.

    Morgan is interested in the mystery of Kit from the first faded smile on her lovely face.  There is just something that fascinates him about her and he will get past every brick wall she seems to be building.  Unknown to him though, the whole town is rooting for these two and will be helping him along.

    Sugarberry is the place to go for fresh starts and happiness.  With its eclectic townsfolk and their ability to pull you in, you can’t help but open your heart.  

    I get to meet two new people in the third installment of Babycakes.  Each have come to town for different reasons, but have many things in common.  Ms. Kauffman did a wonderful job helping me connect with both of them and also helped me reconnect with this great little town.  It maybe fictional, but I would visit Sugarberry in a flash.  The buildup of their relationship was well paced and how the town embraced and helped heal them both made it all the more special.

    I have enjoyed the Cupcake Club series from the very beginning.  It is a feel good series, with sexy romance, true friendships and heart healing love.  It will make you smile, your heart beat and laugh out load.  You can’t beat a book that will wrap around your soul and snuggle you tight.  Tasty reading at its best!

    All that thought and emotion sharing was just too much for my English sensibilities ~ Under the Covers

    Kit Bellamy has come to Sugarberry Island to start a new life after the business she loved was sold from under her. Still reeling her life crumbling beneath her, she hopes her new job and life on Sugarberry Island will be just what she needs. What she didn’t expect to find was Morgan Westlake. Morgan is now the sole guardian to his niece Lilly after his brother and wife dies a year ago, coming to Sugarberry Island he plans on making a new start away from his overbearing and cold family, what he didn’t expect was Kit Bellamy.

    I made the fatal mistake of being attracted to a book because of its cover and title. One because yellow (and green) are my favourite colours and two it mentioned cupcakes and who doesn’t love a cupcake? Unfortunately this book just wasn’t for me, I found myself more interested in reading the recipes at the back of the book (which sound delicious and I fully plan on trying out!) than I was in the book itself.

    What I didn’t like most about this book was the weird way in which the characters, especially Kit and Morgan spoke to each other, it just seemed so…unrealistic, and coming from a gal who likes romance heavy on the werewolves that is saying something. I found it more feasible that a sexy bloke will start sprouting fangs and a bit of extra hair then a he would constantly want to talk about his feelings. Every conversation would start with an update on their emotional state and inevitably someones eyes would start going “shimmery”… I mean really? Who lives like that? All that thought and emotion sharing was just too much for my English sensibilities.

    But there were good points, it had a quirky and eccentric cast of secondary characters who made me chuckle and Lilly, Morgan’s niece, was disgustingly cute and I loved her fascination with the sea turtles.

    This book just wasn’t really for me, although the romance was kind of sweet I found it a little boring and by the end I found I was reading to get to the end, rather then because I enjoyed it.

    LOVED LOVED LOVED This Book!

    I really enjoyed this third book in the Cupcake series. The main characters Kit and Morgan are so sweet and so complex. I couldn't put this book down. By the end of the story I even wanted my own Paddlefoot! ;)
