Julia Dorning never thought she would leave the realms of spinsterhood, or her parents basement, until she met the very handsome Jared Moody. Now nine months later Julia’s life seems to be perfect, even to the point that she is going to be on national television. In a moment of madness (ok, for Julia they come quite frequently) she applies to contend on Cupcake Battles, but as the day looms closer Julia’s nerves start getting the better of her.
With Jared acting strange, Julia’s mind starts working over-time.
Can Julia keep it together long enough to get through at least stage one of the challenge? And will she be able to handle whatever is unsettling Jared?
If life is going to throw anyone a curve ball it would be Julia. Following on from the first book, Thirty-two going on spinster, we find Julia and Jared in a happy relationship, enjoying their jobs and everything going according to plan. You just know it can’t last! Even though she now has her perfect job, owner of her own bakery, Julia still suffers with insecurities and vulnerabilities and that does change in this book either. When Jared springs his surprise on her it is no wonder she doesn’t take it well and let’s face it she does what every other woman on the planet would do… asks friends and Google, neither is good for your sanity!
This is a great follow up book and just as funny as the first. We have two weddings to attend and a reality T.V. show. Patti is at her Southern best and is a fantastic side-kick to Julia on the show. With both Brown and Anna getting stressed over the respective weddings and putting more work on Julia, the poor woman doesn’t know if she is coming or going.
Hilarious moments mixed in with doses of reality. You can’t help but want everything to work out well for Julia and Jared. Great characters and a very funny story line.
