Overview

For fans of Debbie Macomber comes Recipe for Love, the second installment in the Cupcake Diaries series

Relationships can be tricky, but will Mike the magician convince Rachel to break her two-date rule?

Rachel Donovan believes first dates are fabulous, second dates are fun, but third dates? She never sees a guy three times in a row for fear he'll break her heart, but she's tempted to make an exception when her coworkers, Andi and Kim, hire Mike Palmer to drive their Cupcake Mobile.

Mike meets Rachel when he's wearing his black-masked magician costume at a Creative Cupcakes birthday party and then tries to saw her in half. He draws closer while helping Rachel devise promotion plans to outsmart the arrogant new French pastry chef threatening to put the shop out of business.

When a rat runs through the middle of her glitzy promo party and the video is uploaded to YouTube, Rachel fears she won't be able to save the shop, help her mother pay for her grandfather's medical treatment, or win back the heart of the one guy she's come to love . . . or will she?

Like the cupcakes in the series title, this book was “sweet”. I enjoyed Rachel and Mike. Mike is open and friendly and very uncomplicated which was refreshing. Rachel was a bit more complex but no such much that it takes endless chapters to fix her. There was just the right mix of conflict, resolution and character development to make the story a quick, fun read great for an afternoon of summer relaxation. I accidentally read the book before the first in the series and didn’t feel I’d missed anything by doing so. This book was received by MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE from the publisher for an honest review. RATING: 4 HEAT RATING: Sweet: No sex or scenes of physical intimacy except some kissing. No graphic violence or profanity. REVIEWED BY: ReadWarrior

Rachel has a firm two-date rule, but when Mike the magician comes along, she finds herself breaking that rule. When he takes the job as driver of the Cupcake Mobile, they are thrown together on a regular basis, joining forces to fight the self-important French pastry chef who is trying to put the cupcake shop out of business. Has Rachel found true love, or will her magician disappear? Awesome sequel to Sweet on You! Ms. Panzera knows what works and she is sticking with it. Short chapters that seldom drag, cute and/or appropriate quotes at the beginning of each chapter, and engaging characters combine to make another great novella. 4 stars Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the Tasty Book Tours book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

*Takes the blood in the tank and puts it in the bowl. She then puts in flour and an entire pound of sugar. Then she grabs Sunny Days and pushes her under a razor. Pinkie removes the filly's heart and puts it in the bowl. She mixes it, adding some chicken eggs and milk. After the dough is done, she pours it into a cupcake bowl and throws it into her super oven. After a second she takes it out and puts cream cheese frosting and red sprinkles. Then she leaves.*
