On Tour: In the Mood for Love {+ Giveaway}

In the Mood for Love_Final Cover (2)It’s a pleasure to be participating in author Beth Ciotta’s Tasty Book Tour for her recent release, IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE, the fourth installment in her Cupcake Lovers series that hits bookshelves today.

As part of the tour, Beth has an exciting tour-wide giveaway she’s sponsoring. Please be sure to see the end of the post for more details.

Here’s a brief synopsis of this delightful romance:

      Sugar Creek, Vermont, is a world away from Los Angeles for high-powered, media-obsessed Harper Day. When she took the job doing publicity for the Cupcake Lovers, she never expected to be won over by the town’s old-fashioned charms. But that was before she moved into the Victorian vacation home of her dreams and fell in with a man whose good looks and irresistible ways are anything but small-town…

      Sam McCloud is a widowed father of two. He and bossy, big-city Harper appear to have nothing in common… though the attraction they feel toward one another cannot be denied. But will their romance last longer than the day’s headlines? There’s more to Harper than meets the eye, and as it turns out, she needs to get married—fast. Little does Harper know that family-man Sam will do whatever it takes to keep her in Sugar Creek—even if that means taking matters into his own hands. And never letting her go…in the fourth novel in the Cupcake Lovers series, IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE.

This charming story is set in the small town of Sugar Creek, VT., and focuses on the lives of Sam McCloud and Harper Day.

Since the death of his wife, Sam has been caring for his two young children on his own. An ex-soldier, Sam spends his free time baking goodies for soldiers with the Cupcake Lovers group. While everyone in town is determined to fix him up, Sam wants only to find a good mother for his children. The only romantic encounter he thinks about is a brief affair he had with Harper, but she wasn’t mother material.

Harper has a stressful job in L.A. as a celebrity publicist. Coming to Sugar Creek to relax, Harper jumped in to help with PR for the Cupcake Lovers. A traumatic experience has left Harper shaken so when things begin to close in around her, she turns to Sam for help.

IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE is one of those wonderful opposites-attract-type stories with engaging bantering back and forth. The characters are realistic and very likable.

The author has captured the charismatic atmosphere of a small town and its friendly people. The setting pulls you in and the delightful characters capture you heart. 

While this is the fourth installment in the series, it can be read on its own. This is a story of family, friendship, love and hope. An enchanting mix of romance, humor and a touch of suspense that’s perfect for a summer read.
