SWEETS AND A STABBING by Harper Lin
Sweets and a Stabbing (The Pink Cupcake Mysteries) (Volume 1) - Harper Lin

Amelia opens a cupcake food truck after her divorce. Her ex is not happy about it. A few weeks after her opening a body is discovered in the bushes at Food Truck Alley. The police question everyone and make an arrest but Amelia does not believe they have the right person. She does a little investigation on her own.

This is a good set up for this series. The main characters are introduced. I like Amelia and her kids, Meg and Adam. They are a strong family unit. Her ex, John, is a jerk but we do need one of those to roll our eyes at and to cheer Amelia on to continue her food truck. I like the secondary characters. I cannot wait to find out Lila's, her employee, story. I'll bet it's a doozy as is Lila. I hope to see more of Mrs. Vega and her family in future books. They and Amelia watch out for each other. I liked her best friend Catherine. This is going to be a good cast of characters and we'll see if Lila is right about the detective.

The story was quick and light. The mystery was believable. I didn't solve to almost the end. The explanation was very welcome.

I look forward to more of this series.

Dirty Sweets
Dirty Sweets - Rhys Ford “I am going to have them hold hands and then paint them. One for you and one for me.” He leaned in, giving me a sugary kiss sweet enough to make my salt-dough cookies edible. “That way, you and I will always be together—from this first Christmas to always.”

Very cute!!

It also made me giggle...

“I would not now nor ever mix Skittles in with the M&Ms.” I held up my hand and placed it over my heart. “I was joking when I said it would be funny. I hereby admit it would not only be tragic but is a killing offense.”

Jae is right to be suspicious that is not funny!! :D

Jack's Sweets
Jack's Sweets - Bellann Summer Jack's Sweets - Bellann Summer ** 2 stupid stars **

Audio edition, narrated by Darcy Stark.
2 hours and 27 minutes

Overall: 1
Performance: 3
Story: 1

I had just finished #1 Bear's Pup of this series. My review here. Bear's Pup was just a fun, silly, cheesy romance galore, but there's a point where cheesy becomes stupid, and it happened in this book. 
The story was just unbelievable and I was rolling my eyes harder and harder.

Jack Woods is a team member of the Rescue for Hire company ran by the main character of #1, Cade. Cade and Jack are also best friends. Cade and Bret of #1 also make an appearance in this book.
This time the Rescue Team is called in to help with a shooting at the community center (what's with this town? Flooding and shootings all over the place?). There, Jack rescues one of the teachers, Brian Hayward, and his class of perfectly behaved 3 year olds, who just do as their told. and don't kick up a fuzz when a huge guys in tactical wear comes and is sneaking them all out to safety. (Yeah, right) 


Anyway, bam! Insta attraction and love between Jack and Brian. Because, eye color.

-------------------------------------
But what drew Jack in was his eyes. They were large and blue. Not light blue or dark blue, but a blue blue. With long thick dark lashes surrounding them.
-------------------------------------

Cue, the cheese!
What made me roll my eyes (blue, for the record. I don't know if they are "blue blue" or "dark blue", though) was not
- the insta attraction, or
- Brian's inability to pull up his own damn pants, or even walk because of some cuts and bruises due to a fall on the asphalt at the beginning of the book. Jack actually carries him around just because Brian has cuts on his knees and they were "a little sore", because Jack is such a nurturer, as the blurb say
- or this:

-------------------------------------
Brian's eyes widened as he watched this huge hunk of a man actually down on his knees in front of him. If he'd been near a camera he would have taken a picture, so when he was old, and in a wheel chair, he could just stare at the sight before him.
-------------------------------------



What made me Judge Judy roll my eyes, was the insanely stupid story plot! Why not call this story (plot spoiler!) "how to get the new couple-in-love, babies (yes, plural!), and "conveniently" not have the mother in the picture. Because she gets killed running from the hospital due to the shock of finding out she's expecting twins. If she hadn't gotten dead, Jack was anyway filing for full custody of his maybe-his-baby('ies, as it turns out) because his ex girlfriend hadn't been taking "good care" of herself with the pregnancy. And the whole team of seven alpha men trying to care for the "scary" babies".




The whole story plot was just so unbelievable stupid that I didn't get to enjoy the cheesiness. This one was a miss. I'm still continuing with the series, though.

Sugary Sweets
Sugary Sweets - A.M. Willard Sugary Sweets - A.M. Willard Crystal's 5 Star Review
Having purchased and read Frosted Sweets, I was addicted to the series. I recommend reading the books in order because you are introduced to all of the characters and their stories in Frosted Sweets.

Zara never thought she would be in a relationship. She never acted like she wanted one, especially with Hatcher. She thought she would enjoy him while she could and then move on. That didn’t happen. Now married, pregnant, and living in the suburbs, her live is nowhere near what she expected it to be. Thankfully, her friends are there to provide moral support when she needs it.

I am thoroughly enjoying this series. The writing is funny, witty, and sharp. The characters are well rounded, and the type that stays with you long after you finish reading their story. I can’t wait for the next installment!

Trish's 5 Star Review
Oh Wow the stories that this crazy bunch of friends ha e is just amazing. Let's start of with Hatcher and Zara things seem to be going great for them until a accident occurs and sends everyone in a panic. But things will turn out great you just have to read to find out. Jayden and Morgan what more can we say about this couple will they finally get to where they need to be in their future with everything going on? Natasha and Diesel just where will the road lead them on their journey? Will Frankie finally see the light with what she had with Brody or will it be too late? This is a book about how most everyday friends and families run their lives straight and to the point and also crazy as hell!
