How to Eat A Cupcake

About the Book

When childhood friends, Annie and Julia, reconnect as adults and decide to open a cupcakery, they must overcome old betrayals, first loves and a dangerous threat in this deliciously charming debut. Funny, free-spirited, first-generation-American Annie Quintana and wealthy, ambitious, beautiful Julia St. Clair could not be more different. Yet, as the daughter of the St. Clair family's live-in housekeeper, Annie grew up side-by-side with Julia in the St. Clair's San Francisco mansion. She and Julia were as close to being sisters as two unrelated only children could possibly be. But when they hit their teen years, their differences began to pull them apart and ultimately led to a betrayal that destroyed their friendship. Eleven years later, the unlikely duo find themselves joining forces to open a cupcake shop, only to become the target of a dangerous mystery man set on sabotaging the bakery for unknown reasons. As Annie and Julia build their business and try to soothe old wounds despite life-altering setbacks, they uncover details about the sudden death of Annie's mother a decade earlier, find love where they least expect it, and discover the importance of family, in all its complex forms. Meg Donohue includes all the right ingredients to whip up an entertaining story about accepting your friends, flaws and all. Because, as we all know, cupcakes are much sweeter when you can share them with someone you love.
