Product Description

Product Description

A sweet romantic comedy with an 18-year-old main character

Maddie is a young woman trying to figure out life after high school.

When she takes a job at a family-run bakery, her life gets exciting. There's a bad boy coworker to flirt with, new baked goods to invent, plus a reality TV show filming on location.

Now Maddie's the star of a baking show, plus she's got two cute boys vying for her attention. Can she believe all the good things that are happening? Or is it all a plot for ratings?

5.0 out of 5 stars Lighthearted Comedy Drama 27 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This lighthearted, comedy drama perked up my day no end. I needed a break from all the paranormal fiction I was reading and Practice Cake was the perfect change of pace. Maddie's bakery job, home and love life kept me turning the pages. Funny, full of warmth and vibrant characters, I'd recommend Practice Cake for some chilled out reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fluffy and cute but lacked substance 16 Jan. 2012
By Jade
Format:Kindle Edition
Dalya Moon was one of the first authors to contact me for a review about half a year ago to ask me to review her middle-grade book Charlie Woodchuck is a Minor Niner, and she did an awesome interview for me back then, so I was really excited to read Practice Cake, which is YA book. I didn't enjoy this one as much as Charlie, but it was fun nonetheless.

I struggled to get into this book at the beginning, and I really do mean struggled so at one point I forced myself to sit down and get further in and then I began to enjoy it. the story isn't gripping but Maddie's romantic escapades are entertaining to read, despite me shouting the obvious at her for most of the book. Yes, our Maddie is pretty dense and shallow, but she's a realistic character to read and I think every teenage girl can relate to her on some level. I will admit that I was annoyed at her dense-ness because certain characters were obviously not who they said they were, but I was also fooled by certain characters along with Maddie.

I think that the TV show side of things wasn't developed enough, it was there as a plot point but very in the background in comparison to Maddie's love life which got pretty repetitive at times. The blurb makes it sound like that is what most of the book was about, rather than it mostly being about the emotional escapades of a young adult.

Overall, an enjoyable read, though it was a disappointment to me as I was expecting so much from this author.

Overall Rating: C+
