Book Review: All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


About the book:

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.


About the author:

Betsy St. Amant lives in Louisiana with her young daughter and has a heart for sharing the amazing news of God's grace through her novels. A freelance journalist, Betsy is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. When she's not reading, writing, or singing along to a Disney soundtrack with her daughter, Betsy enjoys inspirational speaking and teaching on the craft of writing.


My Opinion

I am a huge fan of Food Network and the Cupcake Wars show so when I saw this book is based on cupcakes and a cupcake competition, I was instantly excited to read it! However, I didn't know if it would hold my attention or be a good read...or just fluff.

And I am so excited to tell you that this book was amazing from start to finish! It was a fun, romantic, Christian book that had me never wanting to put it down until the very end!

I loved the friendship between Lucas and Kat because that is how my husband and I started our relationship - he was my best friend for four years before we started dating so I totally could relate to Lucas and Kat. I loved watching their relationship finally move to the next level and their relationship grow and strengthen.

This book was overall very well written and so fun to read! I highly recommend if you like cupcakes and love! :)
