Using Cake Mixes or From Scratch
100 Bundt and Tube Pan Cake Recipes - Tera L. Davis

I read some of the reviews on the book on Amazon and it was a mixed review, but there was one review by a "professional pastry chef" and they pointed out that this was a good book because there were options for people who were not very good at making things or were just beginners and there were scratch recipes for those who were more advanced. It was a very good point. This book is good for all. I got it for free and it is now $2.99 and a good price. 

 

I marked several recipes that my daughters and I might end up trying and experimenting with. I do suggest this book and if you are just beginning or experienced it will be enjoyable.

Falling for the Girl Next Door
Falling for the Girl Next Door - Tera Ly... Falling for the Girl Next Door - Tera Lynn Childs I love this series. And I really enjoyed Sloane and Tru's first book.
But then when I started Falling for the Girl Next Door, Sloan was back to her old antics. And I wasn't a fan of her when she had that attitude in book one, I really couldn't stomach her in this book. It really overshadowed my entire experience of Falling for the Girl Next Door. Simply because it kinda didn't mesh with what I felt Sloan had worked through...
The plot was ok. Except that I feel that Sloan did act rather annoying - which lead to Tru being jealous and mostly avoidable dramas. I do like that they did however, grow from this, that they did overcome some heavy issues together and also most importantly Tru facing up to things.
Though this is the second book of these two, it can be easily read as a standalone. Which Childs did very cleverly. I'm not sure if I personally liked this however, because as I mentioned, Sloan went through similar growth and problems in the first book. Also inevitably I kept on comparing the two books, and somehow for me book 1 just was cuter and sweeter and more swoony. However, book 2 is deeper and tackles some big issues, which is why I gave this a rather reluctant 3 stars rather than 4. I wish I wouldn't mind Sloan's attitude as much as I did. I think it would have been a really good book.
But alas for me, it wasn't.
Still Child does write interesting characters, does drama like a queen and beyond that did a good job at tackling some bigger issues without it becoming a heavy book.
So sadly not quite as enjoyable for me as I wished for, but definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.
