Review & Giveaway: The Cupcake Diaries Sprinkled with Kisses by Darlene Panzera

The Cupcake Diaries:
Sprinkled With Kisses
By: Darlene Panzera
Releasing March 18th, 2014

Stacey McIntyre thinks she’ll pay off her debt in no time when Andi, Rachel, and Kim ask her to manage Creative Cupcakes’ stand on the beach. But selling cupcakes isn’t as easy as it seems. Especially when Dave Wright, the handsome owner of an ice cream truck proves he’s as determined as the dive-bombing seagulls to take away her sales.

Dave’s done with dating and done with beautiful, headstrong women like Stacey. Then the refrigeration on his truck breaks and instead of gloating, Stacey helps him out of a tight spot…and is rewarded with a kiss.

Now Stacey isn’t sure where they stand. Will Dave push her back into the role of rival? Or can she convince Mr. Wright that working together will lead to sweeter rewards?

I've been a fan of Ms. Panzera since the first book I read of hers. I find them to be well written with enjoyable characters. Each book follows the other and always has the three main characters in it. Up this time is Stacey, who has some serious issues due to what's happened in her past. I don't want to tell you to much because I feel you should be able to experience it yourself when you read the story. But those issues have molded whom she's become. I kinda like that person, even though I think she doesn't give herself enough credit. You see her grow in the book and cheer her on. I also liked Dave and thought he was a good fit for her. He too, has some issues and have been moving on from them. This is a sweet story that's full of friendship, family and love. Happy reading!
