REVIEW - Some Kind of Wonderful: A Holiday Novella (Cupcake Lovers #3.5) by Beth Ciotta
Release Date: 23 October 2013
Have yourself a scrumptious, small-town Christmas with this special Cupcake Lovers holiday novella, Love on a Winter's Night!
Growing up in Sugar Creek, Maya Templeton and Zachary Cole were best friends. After high school, each went out into the world in search of adventure. Maya moved to Florida to explore her passion for baking and pastry-making, eventually establishing her own business: Cupcakes & Dreamscapes. Zach joined the military and became a Marine Scout Sniper. Now, after years apart, they’re both going home for the holidays. They don’t seem to have much in common anymore. In fact, Zach seems to have the hots for Maya’s business partner. But when the two get stranded together during a blizzard, they are forced to reexamine their connection. Are Maya and Zach better off “just friends”—just as they were when they were young? Or could it be that true love was there all along?
Look for Anything But Love—available now!—from St. Martin’s Paperbacks.
My Opinion 3 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and St Martin's Press, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
This is a super sweet holiday novella about two friends turned lovers when they become stranded after trying to deliver some holiday cheer.
Zach is a Marine returned from war but has been medically discharged, whilst Maya has come back home for the Christmas holiday at Zach's aunt's request.
It has a Christmas Carol touch to the book that helps keep the book with that holiday feel, even Maya's love of holiday cheer is sweet.
It's a clean romance, so those of you that don't like explicit sex scenes then this is the book for you.
