Blog Tour: Batter Up

Batter Up

She mixes more than flour and sugar into her cake batter, and he’s about to find out if a little bit of magic is to his taste...

Bakeshop owner Emma Stevens has a secret — a delicious, slightly unorthodox secret. Each Monday, she mixes up a premonition to share with the bachelors of Buttermilk Falls, and sets one lucky man on the path to true love.

When reporter Jason Levine finds himself mixed up in a Las Vegas bachelorette party, he hears the strangest rumour: the marriage is happening thanks to magic cake batter. Seriously sceptical, and sick of frauds, Jason journeys to the backwater town of Buttermilk Falls to expose the baker and release the townspeople from her evil clutches.

But when Jason meets Emma, tempers flare and sparks fly. Will Jason cling to his logic at the expense of a future, or will he let himself fall under Emma’s spell?

An engaging and lighthearted romance with elements that may be considered magical. Emma has a special touch in the batter she whips up every Monday night at the family bakery. Here one lucky bachelor, chosen among the many in the little town of Buttermilk Falls (even the place can give you a toothache), may see the name of his one true love folded among the, what else, batter. Emma the wielder of said magic is happy enough to spread this gift among the many, a family tradition of sorts despite her own love life having gone kaputs. Never mind that there might be a potential someone next door. She's not really interested and he is a pesky journalist after all out to ruin the family business by revealing their secrets. Jason has sniffed ia potential story when he accidentally gate crashes a Vegas wedding. The happy couple found true happiness with the help of some cupcake batter and magic. Say it isn't so, how can one woman mesmerize and make believers out of a whole town. This might just be the break he could be waiting for. Little did he know that a certain green eyed blonde could make him a Harry Potter believer in no time. Batter Up was definitely one of those lighthearted fun and romantic summer reads guaranteed to put a smile on your face. It was definitely all romantic tropes rolled into one but despite that was definitely something very special. A must read for lovers of this genre.
