Short Review: I felt like this one lacked something. For most of this book, all i could focus on was her trying to find the missing thing for the damn cupcakes, sure the guy is dead, but what the fuck is missing from that girl's perfect cupcakes?! I feel pretty back for Mike and the other cops in this town, Hannah solves everything and they didn't figure shit out, but they have the nerve to treat her like shit when it comes to her helping them Give Hannah the damn job!!!!! The little cat side story was a bit weird, but i'm not really a cat person so maybe that's why. I can't wait for Andrea to have the baby!

Short Review: So imagine your boyfriend calls you up at random, and tells you he bought a house, but doesn't ask you to move in to that house, nor asks you to marry him, what would be your first thought!? Hannah's first thought.... He must not love me because i have a few extras pounds on me... Wow. Way to be a positive role model there Hannah. So she goes on a diet, which come on, you own a bakery, good luck. OH and did you know Hannah has a younger sister?! Neither did i SINCE SHE HAS NEVER BEEN MENTIONED BEFORE THIS DAMN BOOK!!!!!!

Short Review: This book has the recipe for the best Blueberry Muffins, and that's all i can think about now. I am so freaking glad Connie was killed, she was the biggest bitch around and i was very glad she wound up dead. The way she treated Jeanie (or Jenny, or Jamie, i didn't catch the name right and i had the audio... ) It bother me that when Connie asked for ovens, they were all too busy and she had to use Hannah's but when Hannah needs ovens, she finds some right off the bat... Hm. Must be nice to be the main character. The back story behind the adopted kid was nice, stretch way to thin for my liking thou.

Short Review: When the coach dies, i did a little happy dance. For starters, how dare you not even share the damn cake with your m'effering wife. You selfish POS. And because he's a horrible person so yay death for him. Really wish Hannah wasn't dragged into it thou, should have just left it alone and once they tested the cake for poison, you would have been off the hook. Side note: i'm 100% sure it's not okay to have a bakery shop owner in a freaking bake off! Not fair at all. I like how the sisters were closer in this book than they were in book 1.

Short Review: I don't like to read Hoover's books, mainly because i love kickass, strong, independent female MCs and Hoover has no idea what this is. (I will say i haven't read all her books yet, so maybe she does have some of those, but from what i gather, she doesn't) This book proves it. Lily's childhood was bad. Her dad beat her mother, a lot. Lily escaped that. Lily then gets beat up by her boyfriend, so what does her "sane" but broken mind do... (view spoiler) *DEEP BREATHE* I can't deal with her at all. I really like Atlas thou. The end made me feel a bit better, but just a bit.

Short Review: This was crazy intense. I enjoyed the crap out of this. I read it in one day and didn't want to do adult things til it was finished. So why no 5 stars?! Well, the MC happened. Maybe I'm a very judgemental person when it comes to MCs or maybe i am just bitter and want to be a bitch, both are possible. But she spends the first half of the book freaking out over her sister and then she basically says eff her for a freaking dress, well and a boy basically, but the dress really. Plus she kinds comes across as a man hater and i do not like those MCs at all. Like accept the damn help from the males, don't freak out on them and/or assume they want your lady parts in return.

Short Review: I too have bitter blood after reading this. (view spoiler) The ghost hunters things seems behind grasping for a story line. I thought there was barriers up for this, I thought there was someone watching for people doing this shit, thought they had towers blocking signals and shit, guess for this book, that is all forgotten, how topical. Then we have the power struggle between Emily and Oliver, which hey we have had for about 12 books now! Fuck. I was bored and didn't give any shits about this book because i had to go through a sex scene of Claire and Shane. So close to the end but yet so far it seems. Oh then they are beating up Eve for marrying a vampire right, then later, she is invited to the vampires tea parties.... make sense of that one.
