Kauffman (Let Me In, 2009) begins the first Cupcake Club contemporary romance by introducing James Beard nominee Leilani Trusdale, who quits her hectic life as the top chef in a prestigious New York restaurant to open her own cupcake bakery on small Sugarberry Island, Georgia. Mostly, she’s running away from nasty gossip generated about her when her former boss Baxter Dunne turned over his restaurant to her to begin a successful television show. Baxter, however, just won’t disappear, bringing his show to Sugarberry and asking to use her kitchen for an episode on cupcakes. He wants to cook side-by-side, just like they did before she fell in love with him. When he shows up declaring his love for her, she doesn’t believe him, since he left her high-and-dry to weather the nasty rumors about how she slept her way into her job. Kauffman’s delightful characters, from the insecure Lani and over-confident Baxter to Lani’s Indian best friend and others, infuse this charming novel with enough sweetness to entice even readers on a diet. --Pat Henshaw
"The opening novel of Kauffmann's Cupcake Club series is as sweet and adorable as it's namesake treat. The ladies of Sugarberry will be delightful companions to look forward to in future stories, and readers can bake along with the included cupcake recipes." - Publishers Weekly, starred review, Pick of the Week.
"Sugar Rush is a playful, sensual, laugh-inducing read. ... it's a good thing Sugar Rush is only the first in a series, because the residents of Sugarberry -- especially the delightfully oddball members of the Cupcake Club -- will lure you back to their island again and again." - Kathy Altman, USA Today/Happily Ever After
"Fans of cupcakes and TV chefs will like this first installment of the Cupcake Club back-to-back romance series that comes with recipes. For those looking for more, not to worry, this isn't a light, spun-sugar tale. It has more substance, like a rich chocolate ganache." -- 4 Stars, Joyce Morgan, RT Book Reviews
