Hello again, savvy savers! Today finds us with a new book review, and this time it’All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes, by Betsy St. Amant. This book follows s small-town girl stuck in a small-town rut, and her love interest, a handsome football coach hoping for a future with the girl he loves, and job opportunity that just might send small-town dreams to smithereens–and a certain small-town girl to the big city for a very long time.
All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes by Betsy St. Amant is a cute, quirky story that touches on some really life issues a lot of twentysomethings face. Kat Varland and Lucas Brannen have known each other all their lives and been best friends for just as long. So when Lucas’s feelings for Kat start to change into something more, how does he decide to show her? By entering her into a reality TV bake off contest called Cupcake Combat. It’s an odd way of showing his love–or rather, attempting to show his love–and a comedy of nearly Shakespearean proportions ensues when Lucas finds himself working as Kat’s assistant on the TV show and trying to find some way to tell the clueless girl he loves her. Filled with cute overtures gone wrong and suppressed romantic feelings, Kat and Lucas gradually stumble their way into love in a manner that will leave you both smiling and cringing–often simultaneously.
All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes is a lighthearted tale of a small-town girl afraid to dream big-city dreams. It’s a story about love and chances, first ones, second ones, third ones, and even fourth ones in some cases. If you like contemporary romances that make you smile, and if you don’t mind a star-crossed love story, then this story is perfect for you.
