A Christmas Cupcake is a charming, whimsical, magical tale – one that you’ll be reading again next Christmas… just because you’ll want to revisit Kate and Florian.

Kate is fanatical about her cupcake cart business. She’s good, really good and with the right plan and help she can make an even bigger success of her business. Right now the popularity of her delicious, vastly varied types of cupcakes is such a success that she really needs more help in the off-site kitchen and here in the cart as well. When a charming, enthusiastic, red haired, handsome man presented himself as the answer to her dreams – she discovered that he might be all that… and more.

Florian was almost completed with his year away training. He had one last empty spot on his resume he needed to complete and then he could happily head back to the North Pole. Back to the Master Baker position that he knew was his, especially if this delightful lady would let him work with her and learn the magic of her cupcakes.

All he had to do was keep his magic under control. That should be easy enough. Oh sure, it had gotten away from him before, and maybe he’d moved on to the next job before any of the humans could begin to ask too many questions. But he could do this, just a couple more weeks and all of his dreams would come true.

What neither Kate or Florian had considered in this business they were working side by side in was a magical little thing called emotions. Like the big ones. Neither thought that maybe they’d fall in love – or have to pick which dream mattered most – business and a successful position or a love that comes along once in a lifetime.

This is a story of a smart, hardworking entrepreneur named Kate, Kate's Cupcake Cart, and an elf named Florian working in the human world to become Master Baker in the North Pole.

I loved that Kate was a strong heroine, who came up with a terrific idea that became successful and needed to realize that she can't do it all alone. She has no time for fun, friends, and romance. Florian is near the end of his year, so close to his ultimate goal. I loved that they worked together so well and shared similar dreams. Also, the cupcakes were different and sounded yummy.

His magic was both romantic and chaotic, which made it funny and heartwarming. There were funny and awkward scenes where his magic ran amok, and an unexpected twist that had me smiling.

I enjoyed this romance. The only complaint I have is that it moved a bit fast. He had a deadline that was a few weeks, instead a decision was rushed much sooner. I would have preferred to have had it play out with the extra time with a bit more suspense due to the looming time limit.

The romance did not feature a sex scene, though there was mention of sex in passing. It has an HEA ending.

I was left wanting to know more about Aunt Holly's and his sister's arrangements, and I saw that her brother will likely get his own story. I'd like to read more, if this develops into a series.

Note: I won an ARC. This is my honest review.

Every relationship has both baggage and secrets. No matter what happens, a relationship will change the people in it.
What happens when one of the people involved has magic that gets more uncontrollable with strong emotions? "...fluttering and trowing wayward magic."
And he can't tell the woman he loves about his magic or the truth about his past?

I connected to the main characters and empathized with their reality vs emotions.
"...her heart urged her not to think. To just feel..."
Both felt committed to an endgame but don't want to miss out on what could be the best life has to offer. A touching story about living in the moment.
"Maybe it was okay that for one night she didn't have her whole life figured out."

The writing flows and the descriptive phrasing made me smile.
"More delicate than a souffle cupcake."
I loved the term for Florian's "year away." What a clever concept!

Endearing and delicious!

What could be better than Santa and his elves at Christmas! Well, a very sexy elf who wants to become a Master Baker mixed with a tenacious businesswoman and her brand new cupcake business is certainly up there! Florian and Kate’s story is another great addition to the Touchstone series. I’ve enjoyed every story, and A Cupcake Christmas is as delightful as the rest. Kate and Florian are wonderful and I was rooting for them the whole way. What a marvelous way to spend Christmas, reading with a cup of tea and a nice fire. Now I’m going to have to add cupcakes to that as well. In addition to the romance, I loved reading about Kate’s tenacity in building her business, especially all the different cupcakes, which were magical themselves. I’ve never thought of savory cupcakes before but this story was an inspiration! I look forward to the next in the series.
