I came across this book, The Cupcake Queen by Heather Helper. Of course I noticed it right off- anything that speaks cupcake will get my attention, immediatly.
I read it in about 2 days, in between 3 signings, a baking class and a women’s conference. It was delightful, easy and very entertaining.
When her mother moves them from the city to a small town to open up a cupcake bakery, Penny’s life isn’t what she expected. Her father has stayed behind, and Mom isn’t talking about what the future holds for their family. And then there’s Charity, the girl who plays mean pranks almost daily. There are also bright spots in Hog’s Hollow—like Tally, an expert in Rock Paper Scissors, and Marcus, the boy who is always running on the beach. But just when it looks as though Penny is settling in, her parents ask her to make a choice that will turn everything upside down again. A sweet novel about love, creativity, and accepting life’s unexpected turns.
I think my daughter would love this book- and I think I will let her read it next. Here is a link to see the book on amazon.com.
Happy Reading & Happy Baking!
