Description

Summer Loves (Millie Vanilla’s Cupcake Café, Book 2) Summer lovin’ never happened so fast…but will it last?

Heartbroken after breaking up with her gorgeous boyfriend, Jed, even baking in her beloved Cupcake Café while the summer sun’s shining on Berecombe Beach can’t cheer Millie up! So it’s time to bring in the big guns – her best friend, Dora.

But when Dora arrives, it’s clear she’s busy licking her own wounds and Millie can only watch as her friend falls head over heels for an old flame. With everyone around her finding love, should Millie give Jed the second chance he’s been asking for, or has the time come for a fresh start away from Berecombe?

    A story told in four points of view, there are two romances winding their way through a story that focuses on a local play as a means to raise money. Newly returned residents of town, Mike and Dora, have left successful Hollywood careers to return home. There is a past between them, not always a happy one, and their story unfolds as they learn to work together in this new dynamic. Mike is the director and a bit difficult - as all are – because he sees the success of the production as a feather in his cap: raise money to refurbish the town’s theatre and whip a bunch of amateurs into shape. All will look good on his resume. Dora, returning afer a cancelled series is good friends with Millia, and not entirely certain she wants to work with Mike again for several reasons, but she makes it difficult to empathize with her at first: pulling Diva-like stunts, often to the chagrin and dismay of her friend Millie. But, all is not lost for Millie: she’s still stuck in to making her café a success, and while she’s thrilled to have her friend back, two things are weighing on her. There’s competition and her shop is truly past needing a makeover: but she is cash poor and work heavy. Add to that her continued concerns about her new maybe-love relationship with Jed, and her worries about his trustworthiness. With Dora about and needing friendly chatter and distraction, she’s completely focused on her work and can’t seem to find a way to make time for herself. Her moments with Jed, especially to work /move forward on their relationship, and to settle her own concerns about him seriously take a back seat to the drama surrounding the production and her friend Dora’s own situation. This was fun and clever with plenty of moments where it was easy to picture (or almost taste) the scene. The town comes alive with vivid descriptions and the addition of just about anything you might find in a small British town: a theatre, cafés, tea, Austen references and plenty of ambience. Food is also a character: Millie’s first love is baking and her creations are mentioned and described well enough to taste. While we see the gradual reforming of a relationship with Dora and her childhood first love Mike, we also get a taste of Millie and Jed’s relationship, but each falls into the background as the play, and all the issues that would arise with the production, including the fallout to the other characters takes the main stage. I’ve purchased the first and hope to read it soon, to discover Millie and Jed’s start: and can’t wait for the next. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
