Summer Showers: 04/15/16
Summer Showers by Kate Hannigan is the sequel to Cupcake Cousins. It's the next summer and now the families are planning a baby shower for last year's newlyweds.
In the first book the cousins who love baking couldn't get anything right. They either mixed up ingredients or had their work sabotaged by "Sweet William" or the dog or other bad luck. Fortunately none of that happens to them this time.
Instead, the bad cooking luck falls on the older pair of cousins. Why they suddenly want to bake is never explained. It seems to be a excuse to replay scenes from the first book but with different characters.
The fun bit this time is the way the family comes together to save the restaurant and gallery. It's a bit off the main road and it just doesn't get enough in the way of regulars or tourists. They hope to boost the regular visitors by winning a cooking contest at the annual fair.
I don't know if a third one is planned but I will read it if there is.
