  • Exactly the book my heart needed!

    Making Whoopie -- exactly the book my heart needed! MAKING WHOOPIE is the third in Erin Nicholas's Hot Cakes series, about a group of five friends who step in to take over the Hot Cakes factory in Appleby, Iowa. Grant Lorre's the practical, stable, steady one, their financial rock, and the one who flies in to rescue the more playful and spontaneous Dax or Ollie... So whisking the very talented and lovely baker Jocelyn Asher off to marry her on a whim? Completely out of character. Or is it? Josie caught Grant's eye from the moment he arrived in Appleby, and his being on hand to literally catch her off a stepladder hasn't lessened that attraction one bit. Going from making whoopie pies to simply making whoopie? Well, that might just seal the deal. MAKING WHOOPIE is an absolute delight. Josie and Grant seem at first glance to be nothing like the other, and not necessarily whom you'd envision together. But as Erin Nicholas does so well, she lets us see who these two are to their friends and families and then who they are and become to each other. And we come to see as clearly as they do that they're more fully themselves together, and that sometimes a spur of the moment decision just reveals what we already know is a perfect choice, forever. And the way they burn up the sheets (or the kitchen table ;) ) just reflects how well they connect other ways as well. Ms Nicholas does more than tie these two up with hearts and flowers. Grant's seen many examples of how being in relationships has been terrible for the women in his life, and he strongly believes that women in particular are often better off on their own, that they don't need a man to live full, complete lives. Josie is an unrepentant romantic--she was blessed with a family full of strong, loving relationships, and she wants that for herself. As these two figure out how to allow who they are to shape their future, we enjoy a front row seat. As with other books in the series, Grant and Josie's friends and families play critical and entertaining roles in their lives. Ms Nicholas's love and understanding of these characters and small-town life shines through. Her wonderfully imperfect characters demonstrate how to be a smart, loving person today. They are sometimes uncertain and anxious, but they are also bold and brave and willing to dream big and live large. And reading them reminds us we also can be our best selves. MAKING WHOOPIE is an incredible read, and I'm already longing to return to Appleby!

  • Puts delicious on the menu ...

    When life becomes a smidge inconvenient count on the heart to show you the way. Making Whoopie is a sugary leap into some spicy territory. Nicholas brings on the smiles with a hint of naughty that tends to feel quite nice. Josie and Grant get off to a slow start, but once they get going, it's full steam ahead. Nicholas serves up the sweetest kind of dessert. With a spoon of romance and a pinch of humor, Making Whoopie puts delicious on the menu and scores five stars.

  • My favorite small town!!

    Gah!!! Every book in this series makes me fall in love with this town and these characters even more!! Erin Nicholas really has a talent for creating small towns that you wish you could live in. I never would have thought that the hopeless romantic would have had to get married for health insurance. Josie and Grant couldn't have had more opposite feelings about romance if they tried. The spark was instant but what grew out of practicality kept me sucked into this story. I can't wait to visit Appleby again!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fun and frisky, it’s the best of the series!

    Who knew baking could be so very steamy?! Josie has no idea that her seemingly unrequited crush on the deliciously serious and oh so hunky Grant is actually very much reciprocated. But there’s no denying the attraction that explodes in chapter one and continues to burn throughout this fabulous newest installment of the Hot Cakes series. This book hit every single button for me...adorably sweet heroine, broody and serious hero and so much steamy goodness! There’s nothing hotter than bedroom (or kitchen) fun with couples who really enjoy each other, in and out of their clothes. Josie and Grant were that couple for me. Filled with yummy goodness, Making Whoopie is my favorite book of the series (at least so far) and I couldn’t put it down!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Whoops!

    If you are a little behind due to the great hibernation of 2020, wake up. There is a series, written by our Erin Nicholas, called Hot Cakes. It takes five friends (millionaires, of course) who help save a town. And in the middle of this altruistic effort, they find what they didn’t know they were looking for….. Making Whoopie is the story of the buttoned-up, stiff shirt Grant and his downfall, Josie, the queen of all things sweet and dirty. A few hot run-ins, and they are steaming up any surface used for baking. Grant spends his days keeping his best friends in the company from making rash, life-altering decisions. He also does seminars helping women learn to be independent, financially, so they can do without depending on a man to take care of them. But Josie definitely needs him to take care of her, doesn’t she? I mean, she doesn’t need him but she needs his insurance for hospital bills. So he really isn’t making her dependent on him, just his insurance, right? Naturally a fake marriage is the answer. And why stick with just a fake marriage…why not get some benefits for both of them? Ms. Nicholas always gives us the funny, the steamy, the practical/not so practical, the heroes we love and the strong women who love them. This series is no different. Can’t wait to read the next one….

    Thanks for your feedback!
