A wedding order at The Secret Lives of Cupcakes Shop is always reason for Millie Morris to celebrate – except when the groom is her ex-boyfriend and the bride is the woman he dumped her for. Still, it’s business for her mom’s shop. Millie even makes a good-faith effort to shoo the groom away when he confides his doubts about the marriage. But when Millie's job as a crime reporter finds her covering a big court case, she must choke down her unresolved feelings like a burnt cupcake slathered in bitter frosting… because the bride is the lead lawyer on the case. Unexpectedly intertwined on multiple levels with both her ex and his fiancée, Millie must choose to either remain in her half-baked state of existence or finally rise above it.
This is the third book I have read as part of the chick-lit plus blog tour. The story has all the ingredients to make a perfect book for me, romance, humour, emotion and heart ache, there was also an added extra cupcakes!
I found the first half of this book very hard to get into due to the slow pace of the book. By the second half of the book the characters and the storyline seemed to develop. My favourite characters had to be Pauline and Millie as they seemed like very down to earth characters which made them easy to connect to. I would give this book a try but I don’t think it is the type of book that is going to stick in your mind.
Thankyou to Chick lit plus and Anne McAneny for the opportunity to read this book.
