Author Meg Donohue has cooked up an absolutely scrumptious debut novel, How to Eat a Cupcake, that explores what happens when two childhood friends, Annie and Julia, reconnect as adults and decide to open a cupcakery. But success in their new baking business venture will depend upon their overcoming old betrayals, first loves, and an unexpected and quite dangerous threat. Donohue's How to Eat a Cupcake is contemporary women's fiction at its smartest, sweetest, and most satisfying, joining the ranks of The Recipe Club, The School for Essential Ingredients, and Joanne Harris's classic Chocolat by proving once again that fiction and food make an unbeatable combination.

Donohue’s sweet debut is a clever exploration of how a West Coast mean girl grows up and gives in to friendship, love, and dozens of delicious cupcakes. Julia St. Clair, a spoiled and pampered Pacific Heights princess, returns home to marry and comes face-to-face with childhood playmate Annie Quintana, daughter of the St. Clair family’s Ecuadoran cook and now a rising pastry chef. In high school, Julia cruelly betrayed Annie just before Annie’s mother died under mysterious circumstances. After Annie caters a charity event at the mansion where she grew up, the two 28-year-olds reconnect, and Annie accepts Julia’s offer to go into business with a cupcake shop. Julia’s handsome ex-beau Jake muscles his way between the old friends as they tentatively try to forgive, forget, and get rich—if a sinister stalker doesn’t destroy their successful cupcakery first. While the revenge-fueled thriller plays out, Julia finally reveals a dark secret to Annie and begins to embrace the love of her long-suffering fiancé, while Annie finds a crazy love of her own with a pompous produce farmer. Donohue’s culinary romantic thriller will keep readers hungry for more. Agent: Elisabeth Weed, Weed Literary. (Mar.)
