In the Mood for Love
By: Beth Ciotta
St. Martin’s Press
Releasing July 1st, 2014


Sugar Creek, Vermont, is a world away from Los Angeles for high-powered, media-obsessed Harper Day. When she took the job doing publicity for the Cupcake Lovers, she never expected to be won over by the town’s old-fashioned charms. But that was before she moved into the Victorian vacation home of her dreams and fell in with a man whose good looks and irresistible ways are anything but small-town…

Sam McCloud is a widowed father of two. He and bossy, big-city Harper appear to have nothing in common… though the attraction they feel toward one another cannot be denied. But will their romance last longer than the day’s headlines? There’s more to Harper than meets the eye, and as it turns out, she needs to get married—fast. Little does Harper know that family-man Sam will do whatever it takes to keep her in Sugar Creek—even if that means taking matters into his own hands. And never letting her go…in the fourth novel in the Cupcake Lovers series, In the Mood For Love.

I have to admit I was drawn to Sam's character from the first time he was introduced in the series. How could you not find a man sexy who is a single father who takes such great care of his kid! I wanted him to find happiness so badly and thought he had, only to have his cousin step in and whisk her away from him, (not that I really thought it was true love). Then he meets Harper Day, a woman that's totally wrong for him, yet so right. You can't help feeling for Harper. She's a woman that no one really knows down deep inside. She hides her true feelings, keeping them locked away from everyone. The funny part is, they work! They make a great couple! There is another great surprise that happens in the story but I don't want to ruin it for for you. You'll have to read it for yourself to know what it is.  I love this series and think it will make a great summer read for anyone who hasn't read it yet. Happy reading! 


  1. I am anxious to learn how Sam incorporates Harper into his life with his kids, etc. She seems like she is just really needing that family connection to ground her. I can't wait!!

  2. I'm reading this now. I like Sam so much. Nice Review!

  3. Ann, thank you so much for hosting and thank you for the wonderful review! I'm beaming. :)

  4. Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting.

  5. Devil's Food cake with a white frosting that has a flavor to it.
