After life takes five women on different paths, a death brings them home. But friendship might not be enough to keep them together.

When Bria Landon and her estranged father each inherit fifty percent of a small-town cupcake shop, her dad hires her worst enemy, and first love, to turn the place into a soulless franchise…or sell it.

To save her aunt’s legacy, Bria needs the help of people who love the bakery as much as she does—her old friends who worked there fifteen years ago. Except each woman is dealing with her own problem:

Juliet, who's trying to prove she’s more than a trophy wife; Missy, a widow who fears losing the job she loves; Nell, who's meddling mother won't stop playing matchmaker; and Selena, a life coach who excels at fixing everyone else's lives...but hasn't a clue what's missing in her own.

Each woman wants to believe their friendship can overcome anything. But as the Berry Lake Cupcake Posse reunite to save their beloved cupcake shop, they soon discover the undertaking will bring more trouble than they expected.

My Thoughts:

Cupcakes and Crumbs is a story of five friends that come back together after the death of their mentor, Elise, who owned the bakery. This reconnecting of friendship proves very vital for all of them as they lean on each other for support.

I enjoyed watching these once upon a time work friends spend time together. True friendship is what they had, and Elise brought them together in her life and in her death. Each woman, Bria, Juliet, Missy, Nell, and Selena, have been living their lives- some with death, sadness, abuse, loneliness, family drama, and true love. I enjoyed getting to know each one of these women. I would not say this is a stand alone story as it ended on a bit of a shocker for one of these women, and I would like to see to see a resolution there.

And all the cupcake talk! I really wanted one, or two.

I received a copy of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
