I also understand the fear of losing a friend so that justified Lucas' actions as well. Such amazing characters! I even loved the "reality show drama", which is rare but awesome to see.
It's not all it's cracked up to be and with God we can find pleasure in simple things. This book had me giggling from the start! I didn't expect the level of laughter I received which was an unexpected treat. If laughter is the best medicine, this must have been a prescription for me. Loved it! All that to say, that doesn't mean I didn't have the sudden urge to punch something at all: I did. During a frustrated screaming match, the mother's "your sister is better" lecture, the father's unwillingness to stand up for Kat. It made me angry with them but that's the power of a good story.
Well done! Amant is an awesome story on best friends,the power of feelings, God's plan, and being good enough. Great love story with an awesome message and some added humor! Was this review helpful?

Meets Expectations: 5. Enjoyed reading another Betsy St. Amant story!!!! I can hardly wait to see what's next! Quality: 4. Meets Expectations: 4. I really wanted to read and review this book much earlier but it didnt work out as I had hoped so it was doubly a blessing to be given a second chance to read and review the book! What a great story idea! I LOVE reading about bakeries and there have been so many wonderful books and stories written about the sweet romances that happen in or because of yummy treats lately!
Betsy St. Amant has joined the ranks of these writers and with a fun twist to boot! They say there are no new stories but this one is definitely not one that sounds like a lot of others Ive read.
What a great idea! What a great concept! What a great story! And what better way for a man to see how much his best friend means to him than to realize he is about to lose her I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes
Value: 4. Kat Varland is a small town girl with big city dreams. She loves her Aunt Maggie and doesn't mind working for her at Sweetie Pies, but her desire to branch out is strong. Her family doesn't seem to understand this and tends to stifle her at every turn. The one person in her life that encourages her love of all things cupcake is Lucas Brannen. Kat and Lucas have been good friends forever.
But recently they both are beginning to want just a little bit more. How in the world are they going to communicate that without risking what they currently have? Surely that will communicate to Kat how much Lucas loves her. But making it to the final episode is anything but sweet. All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes is an endearing tale of friendship turning to love. Both Kat and Lucas want a deeper relationship but are too scared to risk letting the other know. It is a story of sacrificially giving of yourself in order to better the lives of those you love.
The story is at times funny and also heartbreaking. I enjoyed an afternoon of reading this lighthearted story of love and friendship. It includes a delicious recipe for Kat's specialty cupcake and a Reading Group Guide. If you are involved in a book club and looking for something on the lighter side this would be perfect. I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review. I could really relate to Kat Varland. She loved baking outside of the box, making new cupcake creations of the gourmet variety.
Her Aunt's bakery, "Sweet Pies", is Kat's only public outlet for her creativity. Unfortunately, her Aunt Maggie only believes in strawberry, chocolate and vanilla. Kat has a talent that's far-reaching but she has a problem believing she has what it takes. She is her own worst critic and, in that, I can relate. I loved Kat. Her sweet personality and the constant war she waged within herself made her a very lovable character.

I love Regency-set and slightly later movies, television series, and books that take place in villages and focus on a variety of characters. Forever Safe. I have long been a fan of Jody Hedlund's historical romances. My favorite of her novels has always been A Noble Groom swoon!
