Reviewed: “Batter Up” by Robin Neeley

Batter UpWho doesn’t love cupcakes?

Truth be told, I don’t. They’re alright. The frosting part, mostly.

But I do love what Robin Neeley’s done with cupcakes in BATTER UP. It’s a bit sweet, a bit witch-ish, and a bit adorable.

Emma and Abby are cousins who inherited their grandmother’s special (magical) match-making ability and it involves… cupcakes!

The twist, one I think is kind of genius, is that Emma and Abby don’t really deal with women – who you’d imagine would flock to a matchmaking bakery. They deal with men. They, or rather their batter, tell the bachelors which woman in town they should man up and date.

Buttermilk Falls, though, isn’t a place that makes national news very often so Emma and Abby are suspicious when reporters from Miami and Los Angeles show up and want to know more about their matchmaking abilities.

Cute, funny, and kind of adorable hijinks ensue as the secret is kept.

And in the end, just as you might expect, Emma and Abby get their matches.

It’s a quick, sweet, fun read I’m very glad I got to read.

BATTER UP is available now for purchase.

(I received a copy of BATTER UP through NetGalley in return for an honest and original review. All thoughts are my own. This review will be posted on NetGalley, Goodreads, and my blog.)
