How To Eat a Cupcake - Meg Donohue

Released March 2012

Meg Donohue

Reviewed by Tracy Farnsworth

I recently finished How to Eat a Cupcake for the Amazon Vine program. If you love culinary mysteries or romances, pick up a copy. It's a good blend of mystery, romance and women's fiction. The only downfall, the author didn't include recipes.

My full review appears on Amazon.

  1. How to Eat a Cupcake focuses on the damaged friendship of two very different young women. Annie Quintana is a pastry chef who draws comfort from trying to recreate her late mother's recipes. Annie is still grieving from the death of her mom who had been a housekeeper to the St. Clair family. Julia St. Clair was Annie's childhood best friend until she betrayed that friendship on her rise to popularity in high school. On the surface Julia is a bit of a snob though she doesn't seem to realize the way she comes across, particularly to Annie. She has a life of privilege though there is a painful secret she carries around with her and that secret helps to make her a little more sympathetic to the reader than she would be otherwise. I definitely preferred Annie's character over Julia but Julia did grow on me and it helped to be able to read chapters told through her eyes as well.
