The Cupcake Diaries: Spoonful of Christmas - Darlene Panzera

4 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Andi, Rachel, and Kim each have their own reasons for wanting this Christmas at Creative Cupcakes to be special. Andi is scared that Jake's job offer with another newspaper will move them to a different state. Rachel, set to marry Mike on Christmas Eve, is afraid her cousin Stacey will ruin the wedding. Kim fears she'll never get a ring and Nathaniel will leave her after the holidays are over. What they didn't count on was having a modern-day Grinch try to steal Christmas away from them. Can they unmask the culprit before it's too late ... or will this be a Christmas to remember for all the wrong reasons?

MY REVIEW -
This was a really cute book! Once again, I love books that take place in a bakery/coffee shop! This one had a real nice but fun Christmas theme. And even though it was about three women I didn't have as much trouble keeping them apart like I usually do.
Very nice character development, I thought all the characters were believable. I even liked the kids that were in the story.
I also liked the cute cover, who doesn't like a cover with a cupcake?
This was a touching, fun, sexy (but not graphic) quick book to read for the holidays!
