Book Club Friday: How to Eat A Cupcake

Hi all!  Sorry for the bit of radio silence this week, it's been one of those weeks - work was crazy, I took a day trip to Boston, running took precedence... you know how it goes.  I'm off again this weekend to run the Lager Jogger 5K (and visit Kasey).  I still need to do recaps of the Run The Bluegrass Expo and race (plus share some of our itinerary) and the Hot Chocolate 15K.  I swear I'll get them done soon.

But in the meantime, I'm back for another Book Club Friday!  This week I'm sharing How to Eat A Cupcake by Meg Donohue.

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Free-spirited Annie Quintana and sophisticated Julia St. Clair come from two different worlds. Yet, as the daughter of the St. Clairs' housekeeper, Annie grew up in Julia's San Francisco mansion and they forged a bond that only two little girls oblivious to class differences could—until a life-altering betrayal destroyed their friendship.

A decade later, Annie bakes to fill the void left in her heart by her mother's death, and a painful secret jeopardizes Julia's engagement to the man she loves. A chance reunion prompts the unlikely duo to open a cupcakery, but when a mysterious saboteur opens up old wounds, they must finally face the truth about their past or risk losing everything.

My thoughts:
This was cute book.  It was groundbreaking or anything, but I enjoyed it.  It was a nice easy read and I basically read it over a weekend.  The plot wasn't very complex, but it did surprise me with a couple of twists I didn't see coming (but with a couple I did).  If you are looking for a light read for the beach, I think this one fits the bill!

I need some reco's - what should I read next?

  1. This is the reason why I love Book Club Friday ..... I discover new books that would seem to be good reads. Thank you for the recommendation. I recently finished David Levithan's The Lover's Dictionary, you might want to read it soon. Have a great weekend! - RUSS
