The Cupcake Diaries: Sprinkled with Kisses by Darlene Panzera

If you like soft sweet romances and cupcakes, you've got to read this story!

Avon Impulse and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to download and read an ebook of this novelette (thank you).  It will be published March 18th, so you can snag a copy then.

Stacey has been hurt enough by men to want to avoid them.  She's also insecure in her own abilities and worries about her job.  She can make cupcakes and is a good sales person but she worries that if sales aren't good enough, the ladies that own the cupcake shop might not keep her on.  That's more than enough to keep her mind busy.  Yet, when she meets this hunk named Dave at the yard sale, she finds her thoughts straying to him, too...

When the ladies of the cupcake shop give her an old van to use for cupcake sales at the beach, it's her time to shine.  She goes out with high confidence until she sees the spot she was going to take was already in use.  The worst part is the person using the space is Dave!  He sells ice cream and it appears it's whoever gets there first gets the spot.  She does horribly in another location and has to buy all the cupcakes herself.  This won't work. What's she to do?

I especially enjoyed meeting Stacey.  She's a good person at heart, is willing to compromise, has good ideas for enhancing business and does well overall.  It's her heart that needs the most help, and that's resolved by the story end, too.

This is a short read that will make you laugh and feed your soul with happiness.  Happy ever after does happen every now and then.
