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.

This review is going to be very short, because apparently the book is also very short and I wasn't expecting that, it's more of a novella type story, as I wasn't expecting to be a bit disappointed.
As you can see the cover is very pretty and the synopsis sounds girly and sweet and cute... and very yummy. But I think that this book was too childish for me or it is more for young younger readers, because that's how I felt and I saw the characters, even though the plot and their age don't give this impression; so I don't know if it's my wrong way of seeing them or.
The plot, the writing style, the characters and anything that it's in this story is easy, light, cute and you go straight through it like through cheese. And I don't know if it's a bad thing or a good thing. Because as I was reading, because it was so short and too easy I fel like I wasn't getting everything that I wanted. I don't want a story to feel like sands in my hands and slip through my fingers, I want to enjoy it and to know that I understood what happened.
I don't know if I would recommned this or to whom. I don't know if I'm wrong, because I didn't like it as much as other people, but you can try it, if you want. I don't think you'll lose more than an hour with it.
