REVIEW ~ Sweet on You by Darlene Panzera

Everyone knows business and pleasure don't mix . . . or do they?

Andi Burke has a dream—a kitchen big enough to dance in, regular income to support her daughter, and a chance to find true love. So when she enlists her sister Kim and their bubbly best friend Rachel to help open Creative Cupcakes, it all seems perfect.

Especially when hunky local reporter Jake Hartman offers to finance the store for them. Andi hasn't dated since her divorce, but the way Jake keeps looking at her might make her change her mind. After all, what could go wrong?

Plenty! There's a shady tattoo parlor behind their shop, a crowd of crazy Zumba dancers out front (chanting "Lose the fat, dance with Pat!"), and about the only thing going right is Andi's romance . . . until Jake's media crew captures a story that could shut the two of them down forever.


Sweet on You is the first of three novellas in The Cupcake Diaries series by Darlene Panzera. The series centers around three friends, Andi and Kim Burke, who are sisters, and their best friend Rachel Donovan. 

Andi Burke is having a ruff time. She’s a single mother, who’s unemployed, she can’t find her deadbeat ex-husband to get him to pay child support, and she’s about to get evicted from her house. The night of her sister’s birthday Andi has this idea to become her own boss, by opening up a cupcake shop. Since they are all unemployed, Kim and Rachel agree to join Andi in helping her to fulfill her dream.

While I enjoyed the story, I found it a little hard to believe, that Jake Hartman, a man Andi met once at a bar offers to finance and become part owner of her new business venture. Sweet on You is a sweet romance. It’s a story of what can happen when you run out of options and all you have left is your determination and drive.
