Kat Varland has had enough of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. At twenty-six years old, Kat is still living in the shadows of her family in Bayou Bend, Louisiana. Still working shifts at her Aunt Maggie’s bakery. Still wondering what to do with her passion for baking and her business degree. And still single. But when Lucas Brannen, Kat’s best friend, signs her up for a reality TV bake-off on Cupcake Combat, everything Kat ever wanted is suddenly dangled in front of her: creative license as a baker, recognition as a visionary . . . and a job at a famous bakery in New York. As the competition heats up, Lucas realizes he might have made a huge mistake. As much as he wants the best for Kat, the only thing he wants for himself—her—is suddenly in danger of slipping away. The bright lights of reality cooking wars and the chance at a successful career dazzle Kat’s senses and Lucas is faced with a difficult choice: help his friend achieve her dreams . . . or sabotage her chances to keep her in Louisiana.
Sissy: What a fun book! What’s not to like about the subject of cupcakes? Combine that with good writing, a little romance and some healthy competition and you’ve got a winner of a story with All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes.
Bubby: I can’t wait to try the recipe at the back of the book for Kat’s Raspberry Lemonade Torte Cupcakes that are so good that they “could very likely bring world peace”. All the cupcakes sound so good that I swear I gained 10 pounds just reading about them.
Sissy: I love a story with a guaranteed happy ending. I love cupcakes. I love Cupcake Wars, on which Cupcake Combat is loosely based, I’m sure. This book was a sweet treat.
Bubby: A little family drama and a slew of misunderstandings between Kat and Lucas keep this story from being overly sugary, ensuring just the right recipe for success.
