Pearl Waterman, co-owner of the My My Cupcake bakery, believes that if she knows anything, it's love and cupcakes. So when her matchmaking ability is challenged, she agrees to an outlandishly risky bet. Equipped with overconfidence and a healthy dose of delusion, she sets out to prove her matchmaking abilities by finding Becky Adams the love of her life.
Using twenty-first century technology with her nineteenth century romantic sensibilities, Pearl lands in the middle of a very real FBI investigation. Special Agent Michael Hanson is so desperate to resurrect his career that he accepts a no-win case complete with two wayward young agents. As the crime spree gains momentum, his chance of succeeding hinges on enlisting the help of a beautiful and smart police sergeant with an agenda of her own.
As their paths mix together, will this become a recipe for disaster or will Hanson and Pearl solve it before they both get burned?
My Review: Its rather sad what you cant get from a blurb... For instance the laughter, Pearl the misguided matchmaker.... wow she is totally clueless on social cues and always assumes everyone thinks the way she does. Which of course leads to hysterical situations. The book is told from mainly two persepctives, Pearl who is completey off the wall and Ryan (Michael undercover FBI agent). Ryan is in town to figure out who is robbing the banks. Pearl keeps getting in the way and providing much needed comic relief.
I laughed from page one to the very last page! I highly recommend this funny, funny read. I am very excited to see what happens with Ryan and Pearl in the next episode lol.
