Descrizione

The eighth book in a delicious series by New York Times bestselling author Sheryl Berk and her cupcake-obsessed daughter, Carrie.

Sadie's basketball coach falls on tough times. But the girls know that the power of friendship—and cupcakes—might be just what Coach Walsh needs!

But when Coach Walsh has to take a leave of absence from school, Sadie's suddenly at a loss. What will she do without coach's spot-on advice and uplifting encouragement? Luckily, Sadie's got Peace, Love, and Cupcakes on her side. Her friends know that the power of friendship—and cupcakes—might be just what Sadie needs! Together, they rally to whip up the largest batch of their lives, all to help support Coach Walsh. When the going gets tough, a little PLC goes a long way. But this record-breaking order might just be too much for the PLC...

Can the girls pull it together in time to score a win for Sadie—and Coach Walsh?

In loving memory of Elizabeth Maria Walsh:

You will always be our Luchadora

Sadie Harris zipped down Frisbee Street on her new RipStik board, imagining herself carving down a powdery white ski slope.

Yes! she cheered as she took each curb expertly. She came to a screeching halt at Kylie Carson’s house and waved to her friend. Thanks to her new speedy means of transportation—a Christmas gift from her two older brothers—she was the first to arrive at the cupcake club meeting.

Does that thing only have two wheels? Kylie gasped. Sadie, you are a maniac!

It’s so cool! Sadie said, picking up the bright-red caster board and flipping it upside down to show Kylie its design. I can do all these sick tricks—even a three-sixty turn. It’s like a snowboard on wheels!

Kylie nodded. Yeah, I almost broke my neck on the bunny slope when my parents took me skiing last year. Better keep me far away from anything that goes fast and downhill.

Sadie smiled. I could teach you sometime. It’s really not hard.

Not hard for you, Kylie replied. You ace every sport you try. My parents nicknamed me ‘Kylie Klutzarina’ when I was three for a reason.

It has a nice ring to it, Sadie teased her friend. She gave Kylie a playful punch in the arm.

Since you’re so sporty, you’re gonna love our latest order, Kylie said. It’s pretty over the top.

No cupcake order could surprise Sadie anymore. Peace, Love, and Cupcakes had created cupcakes for an Elvis impersonator; cupcakes decorated to look like raw sushi; and even cupcakes for dogs, cats, and horses to eat.

Go ahead—spill, Sadie said. What’s the new order, and are we renaming the club Peace, Love, and Crazy to Bake This?

I think we should wait till the rest of the girls get here, Kylie said, stalling her. But I will give you one little hint: you’ll be jumping up and down when I tell you what it is.

By the time Jenna Medina, Lexi Poole, and Delaney Noonan—the remaining members of PLC—arrived, Kylie had laid out all the details on her kitchen counter. So the delivery is Saturday morning, which gives us a week, she said, glancing at the order form. And the order is for four dozen in two different flavors—something chocolate, something vanilla. She opened her recipe binder and started flipping through it.

It doesn’t sound so complicated. Lexi weighed in. Sadie told us you said this order was over the top.

"Well, the customer is leaving the design up to us, and the sky’s the limit," Kylie replied.

Jenna realized her friend was trying to be punny. There is no way I am delivering these cupcakes jumping out of a plane!

Relax! No skydiving. Kylie chuckled. But you’re right about the ‘up in the air’ part.

Is this a cupcake order for birds? Lexi guessed. ’Cause feathers and fondant don’t exactly go well together.

Nope, no birds, Kylie said. And no helicopters or bungee jumping either.

Jenna scratched her head. "Qué pasa, chica? What are you not telling us?"

"The order is for a trampoline birthday

    SEAL Bjornolf and wolf Anna must go undercover posing as husband and wife to catch a killer. Both are dead serious about this operation, but can't help the resist the passion between them. Especially with the situation keeping them close to each other. The temptation is too much.Good read! I really enjoyed Bjornolf and Anna's story, it was delicious, intense and charming. A SEAL Wolf Christmas makes for a wonderful holiday read. This book has a little something for everyone, with elements of paranormal, military and mystery. Terry Spear is on roll with her action packed wolf stories, with each book she expands her wolfverse in wondrous ways. If your looking for a holiday adventure definitely pick this one up.
  • (5/5)
    An enjoyable paranormal romance with lots of fast paced action incorporating holiday activities and I always like a hero in pursuit. Both main characters showed good alpha behavior and the secondary romance was nice too. SEAL werewolf Bjornolf is attracted to mercenary Anna and always has her back.

    If you are looking for the perfect book to get you in the mood for Christmas this is the book for you. I loved this story. Both characters give off the tough impression, as they are both fighters. Both have struggled with connecting with other, both loner wolfs. But when they end up on a mission together, a spark connects them to each other. Then they go on another mission together, posing as a married couple, watching out for a teenage wolf who recently lost his parents. I really loved the theme of this story. The heroine Anna lost everything right before Christmas, and has never felt the holiday. That is until she meets the teenage boy who teaches her the magic of Christmas and Anna although has a tough exterior, has a vulnerability, one that only Bjornwolf will reach and teach her the power of true love. I loved this story, it was fun, sweet and tender. Not my favorite of this author, but a very enjoyable read, and perfect kind of book to read for the season. Get ready to jingle all the way to the power of true love in a setting that is rich and will keep you fully satisfied.
