Caramel Crush
Caramel Crush (Cupcake Bakery Mystery) - Jenn McKinlay

Angie and Tate's wedding date is just 3 months away and Angie has become a Bridezilla and is hard to control. While dealing with that, Mel gets a visit from her former roommate from college. She wants Mel to make break-up cupcakes and personally deliver them to her ex-fiancee. She wants to humiliate him in front of everyone, just as she feels she was by him. She uses the "you owe me" to get Mel to do it, but Mel goes to the man's house, the club and then to the office where he works. It is when she is verbally berated into searching the warehouse that she finds the man dead in a ball pit. Her former roommate, Diane, then says she needs to prove her innocence. Mel has to divide her time between Joe, her almost-husband - they were almost married until the fake preacher was arrested, Angie (wedding things) and Diane (finding the real murderer). 

 

There were some moments that I was laughing so hard, I had to rewind the audio just to hear what I had missed while laughing. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and moved onto the book before that I had missed "Sugar and Iced." 

 

If it weren't for the fact that I am downsizing, I would probably look into buying this series, as we have all enjoyed these books.

He’s the one with the sad man bun on his head. Honestly, it’s the mullet of our age.

This is just such a great description of a bad hairstyle, in my humble opinion.

Camp Crush
Camp Crush - Tammy Andresen

Chloe is fun, effervescent and energetic. She is super excited that she is finally old enough to be a counselor at Camp Winnipeg with her best friend, Millie. She is also enthusiastic that she might catch the eye of equally fun and sociable second year counselor, Alex. The only down-side is Alex's best friend, Drew, who made fun of Chloe's perky attitude all of last year giving her the nick-name of Alka-Seltzer. However, when Chloe arrives at camp it is Drew who greets her warmly and helps her with her bags. Chloe learns that she and Drew will be going to college next to each other this coming fall. Chloe and Drew spend more and more time together, but Chloe may still be hung up on Alex. Chloe sorts out her true feelings for Alex and Drew when she is kissed in the dark, but by the wrong guy! Now Chloe has to start all over again after making things weird with both Alex and Drew.

A cute, sweet and easy young adult romance that is perfect for the summer. The point of view switched between Chloe and Drew giving a great sense of both sides of a budding romance that I often miss. Chloe's character was infectious and I'm sure we all know someone just like her. I enjoyed watching Chloe realize that her initial summer crush may not be the best choice for a relationship and watching her go through the confusion of a first love. Drew's point of view was great to read, since he was equally as confused in romance as Chloe. Through their awkwardness and uncertainty, both Chloe and Drew grow and are able to begin a super sweet romance. I can't wait to read book two, which will be centered around Millie. Overall, an adorable and entertaining young adult romance.

Book Review - First Crush, Last Love by Elizabeth McKenna ** 0.99 **
First Crush, Last Love - Elizabeth McKenna
Enjoy being taken back to the years of school and college, reminding you how things were back then, how you would second guess what people were thinking, the unknown of what to do and how to behave, did that look mean what I think it meant or was it my imagination?  Then of course you have your first crush, your first boyfriend, those that thought they were better than you and those who suffered because they were different.  This is where we first meet Jessie and her first crush Lee, even though competition was high for his attention as he was infatuated with wrongly suited Tina, never giving Jessie more than a second thought at the time. I felt myself willing Lee to notice Tina yet he was having none of it, but as the time rolled on things have a way of changing....
 
Turning to the first page brings you straight into the beginning of Jessie's roller coaster life and the start of events that take their toll on her as she feels that she has to make do with second best and then sadly has to suffer from the consequences of her choices. After the senior year of high school, the story is then divided into Jessie and Lee's separate lives after college and of course the 10 year reunion that marks the change of their past giving them a second chance of love that could have been so many years previously.  
 
The authors writing easily draws you in to the story as you anticipate what will happen next in the lives of the characters. I immediately felt a connection with the them, feeling their emotions, or the atmosphere in which they were creating. I felt a mix of their feelings as I followed their stories and their burdening secrets, I felt their sadness, grief, their anger and frustrations, glimmers of hope, excitement, and of course their happiness. 
 
First Crush, Last Love was a tale that took hold of me as I followed the numerous and emotional events, events that felt very real, it's one of those books that will have you picking it up whenever you have spare reading time to connect with the characters that you have felt a bond with. I enjoyed the mix of romance, suspense and in parts humor, and I am really looking forward to another chance of reading more from the author.
 
 
Book Description
Back in high school, Lee Archer had the power to make Jessie Baxter's cheeks flush and her heart race. But the popular athlete never wanted to be more than just friends. Ten years later, after a failed marriage and with her journalism career on shaky ground, Jessie's come home for her high school reunion--and Lee still has the power to make her knees weak and her pulse pound.

Lee's teenage years were filled with more trauma and drama than anyone guessed. Though his damaged past has helped make him a successful police detective, it's hurt every relationship he's tried. But seeing the grown-up, stunning Jessie might just change his commitment-phobic mind.

Jessie's psycho ex-husband had her convinced no one would ever love her, but Lee is ready to step out of the friend zone and into her heart. Can she learn to trust again before she loses her chance to turn her first crush into her last love?

Elizabeth McKenna's novel will have you remembering the angst of high school, the grief of a failed relationship, and the joy of finding true love at last.
