A sweet but very interesting love story
By Melanie
Shelby is shy but independent. A good business woman but a little naïve when it comes to some things.
Trent is yummy, cocky, funny, and sweet.
Drew is a lawyer. Enough said.
This book will keep your interest from the beginning. Not a dull moment.

A cheeky take on a foul-mouthed British detective exiled to a Canadian metropolis

Can the Andrew Dice Clay of British detectives get in touch with his inner nice guy when banished to Toronto? One can only hope the renowned politeness of his new Canadian colleagues rubs off on him and quick once this defective detective opens his mouth to speak. The stream of inappropriate epithets is jarring, to say the least. It’s no wonder he was exiled to [North] America by his Manchester superiors. Nigel Holme’s is loathsome and, oh yes, he also let a serial killer escape after the man killed the woman he loved. Derilection of duty left him damaged personally and professionally. Needless to say, his new compatriots are not that thrilled to meet Nigel. He and his new partner, Kristen Sherlock [yes, Sherlock & Holmes] don’t hit it off, but she deploys her niceness to correct and control the out of control Brit. Kristen’s got trouble of her own, though. Not all Canadian police officers are nice, and there’s an especially nasty one who has it in for Kristen. Why? Well, that’s part of what this ‘whydunit’ is about. Can Sherlock avoid becoming a victim of her vicious colleague’s wrath? Can Holmes shed his barbarous ways so that he’s a suitable colleague and partner for anyone, anywhere? You’ll have to read Holmes in America to find out–tongue planted firmly in cheek.

Cupcakes & Kisses

Just loved this book. Was a change of pace for me. Main characters were Shelby, Drew, and Trent. Drew and Trent have been friends for many years. First Drew went back home to Montana to help with his mother and opened up an attorney’s office. Shelby has lived in Ennis all her life, except when she went away to school. Shelby met Drew with him coming into her bakery. During Drew’s visit to Shelby’s bakery, he asked about her apartment above the bakery. Drew had wanted it for his friend Trent, who was coming back to Ennis. Now, Trent was a playboy, and according to Drew, he wouldn’t be in town very long. Trent moved in, and everything changed for the three.
I could go on, but I don’t want to inform other readers anymore of the story, so you have to read it.

Tasty treat awaits
By KindleRead
A delightful story of Shelley and Trent.
A tale of a “bad boy” finally see his worth and striving to be the man his woman deserves.
A small hiccup along the way – how do you compete against your best friend and still remain friends.
A witty and enjoyable read, you will laugh and aww right to the end.
