Kauffman’s Cupcake Club series continues with the story of another troubled young woman moving to the island community of Sugarberry. This heartwarming tale of two loners finding each other has a slight paranormal bent. Members of the cupcake crew from earlier books make entertaining appearances, but are not major elements. This is simply an enjoyable feel-good book — plus recipes!

After driving cross-country to claim her inheritance, Honey D’Amourvell is dismayed to find that the property she had intended to use as both a home and shop is occupied by a cupcake business. To make matters worse, her ancient car has broken down and she is stuck in the small island community. Everything is further complicated by Honey’s gift/curse — if she touches someone, she has visions of future events affecting them. Luckily, when handsome, sexy car mechanic Dylan Ross discovers her strange ability, he takes it in stride and helps Honey integrate into the community, where she longs to join the zany cupcake club and have friends for the first time in her life.
