Tasty Book Tours Book Blast & Review: In The Mood For Love

In the Mood for Love

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.

Review: In The Mood For Love is the fourth Cupcake Lovers book. I absolutely love this series. 

The thing I like the most about this one: our hero bakes! Yes! Nothing better than a man in the kitchen!

Oh and his kids are absolutely precious!

And then there's Harper. Shes a publicist that's doing work for Cupcake Lovers. She's also having a secret fling with Sam. 

I liked that both Sam and Harper have their own issues and they are very real characters that you love for their faults and flaws.  I also love the town, Sugar Creek, Vermont. This is what we all want small town America to be like. Full of quirky characters and fun places

However there's so much more to this story than just Sam and Harper. There's Vincent and Daisy and Adam and Peppy, all of these characters help bring this story to life and they tie in with each other in different ways.

I really enjoyed the secondary romances, almost as much as Harper and Sam's story. I love how he easily slipped into his role as a husband and protector, especially with her ex's father and the problems she had with him over the past few years.

I have to say, Daisy steals the show whenever she's there. I love the idea of an elderly lady with bright blue hair, dressing up as a moose! Really, I want an old lady like that in my life!

Definitely a fantastic read and a great addition to this series.
