Annie and Julia grew up together in the same house, almost like sisters. Almost, but not quite. Julia’s parents owned the house the two lived in and employed Annie’s mother as the housekeeper. Annie and Julia were friends until gossip, initiated and then shared by Julia and her friends, almost ruined Annie’s life.Time passes and Annie and Julia meet again and Julia decides to help Annie open a cupcake shop. Hard feelings still exist and Annie and Julia must work at their new relationship if the renewed friendship and the cupcake shop are to succeed.There are lots of things to like about this book. It’s wonderful to read a story that takes place in a cupcake shop. It’s wonderful to read about all the amazing ideas Annie has for cupcake (Key lime cupcakes…Moroccan vanilla bean and pumpkin spice cupcakes…lemonade cupcakes with hot pink Swiss meringue buttercream icing…Do you see what I mean?) It’s always wonderful to read a story about people working on a difficult relationship. And the story is full of mysteries, and that’s always fun. Thank you to the publisher who sent this book for review.
