Overview

Have yourself a scrumptious, small-town Christmas with this special Cupcake Lovers holiday novella, Some Kind of Wonderful!

Growing up in Sugar Creek, Maya Templeton and Zachary Cole were best friends. After high school, each went out into the world in search of adventure. Maya moved to Florida to explore her passion for baking and pastry-making, eventually establishing her own business: Cupcakes&Dreamscapes. Zach joined the military and became a Marine Scout Sniper. Now, after years apart, they're both going home for the holidays. They don't seem to have much in common anymore. In fact, Zach seems to have the hots for Maya's business partner. But when the two get stranded together during a blizzard, they are forced to reexamine their connection. Are Maya and Zach better off "just friends"-just as they were when they were young? Or could it be that true love was there all along?

Reviewed by JoAnne Book provided by NetGalley for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book This was a nice Christmas novella that mentioned the Cupcake Lovers and their scrumptious cupcakes along with various characters we’ve met throughout the series. This is Maya and Zach’s story and I hope we see them in future books. They’ve been best friends forever and there’s immediate chemistry when they reunite at the holidays – chemistry that they’ve never had to deal with before. It’s a sweet romance and great to see that they know and understand each other like no one else does and I enjoyed their reminisces as well as trying to figure out how they should deal with each other in the present. There are family, friends, Zach’s injuries that got him discharged from the military, a blizzard, visitors like in the movie, A Christmas Carol, that only Zach can see, along with romance and love. Giselle was an interesting character that was thrown into the mix – Maya’s best friend and business partner – but she had no substance to her only looking out for herself and wanting nothing but good times. I have enjoyed the other books in the series and the novella did not disappoint except that it was way too short. There was some closure but the story ended too abruptly for me. I hope there is closure for Maya and Zach along with the readers when the next book in the series comes out. Favorite Quote: Any thoughts Zach had of privately wallowing in his misery fell by the wayside. He suddenly wanted nothing more than extended time with Maya. Time for a frank talk and he didn’t plan on having it in the pantry.
