BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: The Cupcake Witch by Poppy Lawless

The Cupcake Witch (novella)

Release Date: 2015

Summary from Goodreads:


Buttercream. Vanilla. Fondant. Dark chocolate. Brown sugar. Molasses. Baking has always been my true love, but it wasn’t until my mother’s death, and the unexpected inheritance of Serendipity Gardens, that my bliss called me. Bittersweet. But Serendipity Gardens has more to offer than just a potential shopfront. An unusual recipe box left to me by a distant relative might be the key to unlocking my dreams.

Too bad the most powerful family in Chancellor has plans that could turn those dreams to ruins—literally.

Too bad the son of that powerful family is just the kind of guy I’ve been looking for.


I suppose being heir to the Hunter family’s Blushing Grape Winery should make me happy, but nothing could be further from the truth. With my mother gone, my father has taken me under his wing, and I despise everything about the way he does business. Sour grapes, indeed. Instead of raising money for charitable causes, my true passion, I’m chasing my father’s manifest destiny.

Too bad his dream includes paving paradise.

Too bad the property owner is the sweetest woman I’ve ever met.

They say the course of true love never runs smooth.

But that’s nothing a magical cupcake can’t solve.

REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 13 years, 2 months


This books as wonderful! It was a great story about a woman who follows her dreams. She becomes a baker/witch who has many new friends. 

My favorite part is the ending because Julie is going to try some match making with her boyfriend's sister and best friend. 

I like how well the author portrays the characters. They are well developed and have great details from their lives added skillfully into the book. 

My favorite character is Mrs. Row because she is extremely eccentric and helps Julie more than she could ever know. She acts like Julie's long lost grandma and helps Julie get her bakery up and running. 

I recommend this book to anyone who likes romance, communities, characters supporting each other and the best kind of witches. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 and up.
