Cake, Cupcakes & Cookies Weekend Book Review: Tangled Up by Robyn Neeley

Review by Suze

Abby's cousin Emma is famous for her Batter Up night. She has the magic to predict true love. Abby loves working with Emma, but she isn't very good at spells. Together they run a bakery, but Abby dreams about starting a catering business as well. Emma's boyfriend's best friend, Brandon, is now also living in Buttermilk Falls. He's working as a bartender while he's also trying to write a book. Abby is the person who's supposed to be his true love (predicted by Emma's batter), but whenever they are together they always seem to get tangled up, but nothing more. Abby doesn't like that at all, so she tries to make a magic cupcake that should reverse Brandon's attraction to her. Will it work and if so, is that what Abby really wants?

I loved Batter Up because of the wonderful, magical atmosphere. I like books about true love and think Robyn Neeley is giving hers a fabulous twist with the spells, the sweet small town lifestyle and the caring main characters. I really enjoyed reading about Abby and Brandon. They're both great people who aren't afraid to dream. Brandon tries to realize his and he's helping Abby to do the same. Their plans are amazing and I could picture them very well. I wish I could actually visit the bakery, the bar and the diner to experience the tastes.

 It was fun to read about Buttermilk Falls and its inhabitants again. There are all kinds of events and many special occasions. Everything has a great vibe. There are plenty of good reasons for Abby and Brandon to spend time together, also after the enchanted cupcake. I like that there's some magic involved, it's just simple and a little bit, but enough to give the story that extra charm. There's also a lot of delicious cake, cupcake and other food talk which made me really want to visit the bakery. I think Tangled Up is a great successor of Batter Up and I'd definitely recommend you to read them both.
