Honey D'Amourvell inherits Aunt Beavis’ store on Sugarberry Island, Georgia. She sees a chance for a fresh start with a place to display her art after avoiding contact with people for years due to her ability to see a person’s future after touching them. Thus Honey drives across the country only to have her car break down upon arrival. As her vehicle is being repaired at Ross & Sons, Honey is in shock to see her new store occupied by Cakes By The Cup (see Sugar Rush).

Auto mechanic Dylan Ross is attracted to his newest customer, but she keeps her distance. When he learns why, Dylan stuns Honey as he accepts what she felt a curse is a gift. As they fall in love, he encourages her to join the cupcake club where she makes friends who seem delightfully crazier than her.

The latest Cupcake Club contemporary romance (see Babycakes and Sweet Stuff) is an entertaining tale with a touch of whimsy though the cupcake crew plays minor roles. Fans will enjoy this tactile love story as everybody’s normal is not in this couple’s future if his kisses can overcome her fear of touching.
