THE ONLY THING BETTER THAN A SURPRISE FLING…
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…
IS FINDING TRUE AND LASTING LOVE.
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 was a sweet romance with some spice added in! It was a great stand alone book. I haven't read the previous books and had no problem reading this one. :D
The characters were very likable. I especially liked Daisy. Oh My Gosh she was such a hoot!
The setting was a small town and the book centered around a group who made Cupcakes for Soldiers, especially Sam a widowed former military man who could make cupcakes like you wouldn't believe and the publicist, Harper.
Harper had recently been involved in a brutal act of violence in a public place and was now terrified of public places. In addition, she had a vindictive man gunning for her. She lost her mojo and turned to Sam for comfort.
Sam was looking for a replacement for his wife but all of the women that he dated just didn't feel right. He and Harper had had a hot and heavy fling and he just couldn't get her out of his mind even though what they shared was sex only. Too bad she wasn't mother material.
They start spending more time together and he sees her in a different light.
At the end there are some delicious sounding cupcake recipes too!
I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I thought it was a sweet read in more ways then one. The characters were sassy and very family oriented which I love. The plot had plenty of twists, some mystery, romance, and some smexy texts. ;-)
