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?
This is book two in the Cupcake Diaries. Like the first book it is a novella. We are back at the cupcake shop and this time its Rachel Donovan & Mike Palmer story. Rachel is the friend in this group. Again, just like in the first book you enjoy the characters. Rachel has many relationship issues that she of course finally works out, and Mike is a nice well rounded man. I enjoyed the story but do have a issue with the fact that it was pretty much the same plot as the first book. I think when you write these novella and put them out so close together you need to find a different plot line for each. I'm grateful for the fact that the characters are really good. They help make up for the same-same plot. I'm hoping Kim's story might be slightly different. Of course saying all that I will read Kim's story because I need to know her story. Recipe For Love is out on May 14th. Happy reading!
