Publisher’s Weekly Top Ten Spring Romance 2012!

Double Fudge…Toasted Coconut…Key Lime…Strawberry Cream…
Every bite is a mouthful of heaven.
And the women of the Cupcake Club are bringing their appetites…

Riley Brown never imagined she would find her bliss on Georgia’s quiet Sugarberry Island after years of Chicago’s city life. With a new career and fantastic new friends, she’s got it all…except for eligible men. But a gig staging a renovated beach house delivers a delicious treat…six feet of blue-eyed, gorgeous writer as delectable and Southern as pecan pie. Quinn Brannigan has come to Sugarberry to finish his latest novel in peace, and suddenly Riley has a taste for the bad boy author that no amount of mocha latte buttercream or lemon mousse will satisfy…

Riley’s friends are rooting for her to give in to her cravings and spice up her life, but it’s Quinn who needs to learn that life’s menu just might include love, in all its decadent, irresistible flavors…

“This story isn’t just about sweets and romance, but friendships that are built to last. Could it get any sweeter?

Riley Brown left her life in Chicago because it had been destroyed. Now that she has moved away from the people and the town she is ready to start all over in Sugarberry. This town happens to be on the quite side and Riley is finally getting another chance at happiness. With a new career and great new friends what could wrong?

Quinn has returned to Sugarberry to get some peace and quiet in order to make some big decisions about his career. The only problem is that he has a novel to complete and he doesn’t have the time for Riley who just so happens to bring some feelings in him that he has only written about.

They find it very hard to deny the attraction between them both, but the first thing they both must do is find out how to move on from their past so that just maybe they can move on to the future. With the help of some friends they will figure out what needs to be done and what a wonderful life it could really be.

This is only the second book in the series but I can tell this is going to be a promising one. Kauffman touches on trust, desire, friendships, and a promising new love that just needs a little tlc to grow into something amazing. The emotions behind the characters were a big part of the story that kept me intrigued and wanting to find out more. It was a very enjoyable read and I just fell in love with the characters. Every single character made this story more than enjoyable but also delightful.

I can’t wait until book 3 comes out. I am excited to see who will be next to fall in love in the town of Sugarberry. This book was refreshing and a very sweet treat. It made me want to travel there to be swept away.”

“Riley Brown was a grade-A klutz, and she knew it. Everywhere she went, she either knocked things over, broke something or had an accident of some kind. If it weren’t Riley, herself, who caused these misfortunes, it was usually her dog Brutus, the biggest animal on the tiny island of Sugarberry, Georgia. Fortunately, Riley Brown was also one of the best food stylists in the industry. She knew tricks of the trade that would make food look delicious no matter how bad the recipe or photographer. She was currently living in Sugarberry on a rented houseboat to lick her wounds from a romance gone bad.  She was also staging homes for a realtor who was trying to encourage more tourist trade to the tiny island. Riley had just finished a staging and had decided to try out the Jog Master 3000. Which, of course, meant she was in dire straits trying to keep up with the ever faster moving machine that she could no longer turn off.

When New York Times best selling author Quinn Brannigan rang the doorbell at the house that was being advertised for lease, he wondered why no one was answering the door. Then he realized it was an open house; so he opened the door and was greeted with the spectacle of wildly thrashing woman trying desperately to stay on her feet on a runaway treadmill. He was so stunned, he didn’t move at first, but when he did and tried to help her, she suddenly let go and went flying into the various artfully arranged cacti plants and Quinn knew he was in love.

Sweet Stuff is the second edition of the Cupcake Club novels and is hilarious from start to finish. Riley has the body of Marilyn Monroe, wild, curly blonde hair, the girl-next-door face and the klutziness of the Three Stooges. She’s absolutely adorable and gorgeous author Quinn Brannigan thinks so, too. Throw in a small pony-sized dog with a tendency to drool and drop logs on your toes, and you have a romance made in heaven–as long as you carry lots of Band-aids.”
~ Lani Roberts, Affaire de Couer magazine – 4 1/2 stars

“…Sweet Stuff is an enjoyable, solid contemporary romance with a likable couple, sprinkled with some humor, great friends as secondary characters, more conflict than expected and yes… some sweetness too.”
~ Hilicia, ImpressionsOfAReader.com

“SWEET STUFF is a book I recommend, completely! Donna Kauffman creates a loveable character in Riley who believes herself a misfit, but Riley will have all your attention with her take on things. In addition, the way these two meet sets the tone for this great read. From the beginning, Quinn Brannigan’s introduction is the funniest romance entrance that I’ve read, so far. Although humor plays a big part in SWEET STUFF, the romance is complete, and a few other themes are part of the whole. From dealing with change to overcoming fears and from learning to trust and learning to love, Donna Kauffman brings it all into this romance.”
