The Cupcake Witch (novella) by Poppy Lawless {Review + Giveaway}






Buttercream. Vanilla. Fondant. Dark chocolate. Brown sugar. Molasses. Baking has always been my true love, but it wasn’t until my mother’s death, and the unexpected inheritance of Serendipity Gardens, that my bliss called me. Bittersweet. But Serendipity Gardens has more to offer than just a potential shopfront. An unusual recipe box left to me by a distant relative might be the key to unlocking my dreams.

Too bad the most powerful family in Chancellor has plans that could turn those dreams to ruins—literally.

Too bad the son of that powerful family is just the kind of guy I’ve been looking for.


I suppose being heir to the Hunter family’s Blushing Grape Winery should make me happy, but nothing could be further from the truth. With my mother gone, my father has taken me under his wing, and I despise everything about the way he does business. Sour grapes, indeed. Instead of raising money for charitable causes, my true passion, I’m chasing my father’s manifest destiny.

Too bad his dream includes paving paradise.

Too bad the property owner is the sweetest woman I’ve ever met.

They say the course of true love never runs smooth.

But that’s nothing a magical cupcake can’t solve.







From the moment I started reading this book I was transported into this beautiful and magickal tale. I felt such a closeness to Julie, like she was an actual friend; maybe even a sister. I loved how strong Julie'scharacter was and the author's story line was breath taking and full of vivid characters...all with their own strengths and weaknesses. I even found myself becoming attached to the characters. 

Poppy Lawless is an extremely gifted author as she knows how to truly weave a world building web that ensnares you and keeps you captivated from beginning to end and I know because once I picked this book up I simply couldn't bring myself to put it down. I will gladly continue to read her books and highly recommend you read this one like yesterday.

I give this book:
