All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes: A Blog Tour and Review
Kat inspected rows of the same old cupcakes. They seemed to blink back at her, as if they knew she was capable of so much more.
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.

The first thing that I love about this new release from author, Betsy St. Amant is the cover! With bright colors and a super cute, yummy cupcake on the cover, you are drawn to the book immediately. Then you start to read and the experience was bar none.
Right from the first chapter I found myself rooting for main characters, Lucas and Kat, to figure out that they are meant to be more than friends. But of course, our timing and what we think is good for us, is not God's timing or His ways. I will not spoil the plot of the book but suffice it to say, you will enjoy the interactions between these two best friends, the baking and the competition that ensues. Just an absolutely adorable book that I could not put down! A nice, fun, clean romance!
This would be an ideal read for any book loving fan of Christian romance for your Christmas shopping list.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
