This cute cover Teddy Roosevelt was adorable This was a quick, fun read There isn t really an emphasis on Christmas until the end Pupcakes doesn t come into play until the very end, as well I knocked it down a star because the storyline was just a little bit predictable.
Pupcakes is not only for the dogs but for dog lovers as well I could not put this book down I was having such a grand time reading this book Literally, I finished this book in a matter of a couple of hours Everyone that I was introduced to in this book I fell in love with Brydie, Nathan aka Dr Sexy, Pauline Teddy s owner , Teddy, and Sasha I have never owned a pug but after reading this book, my next dog may have to be a pug Brydie needed Teddy just as much as Teddy needed her Plus, you could no [...]

First let me say it took me forever to read this book However, it s not a reflection on the book because once I actually sat down to read it, I read the majority of it over a 24 hour period While the cover is marketed as a holiday read, it actually takes place during the months of October, November and December so if you aren t a big Christmas themed reader, don t let the cover throw you.Byrdie Benson has moved to the Memphis area to be closer to her best friend following the collapse of her mar [...]

Originally posted on lampshadereaderI voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy via Edelweiss of this book Pupcakes by Annie England Noblin was such a cute and sweet read While the romance aspect itself was nice, I really enjoyed the dynamics between Brydie, Pauline, and Teddy the dog It was really about Brydie finding her purpose and actually gaining the confidence to break away from the shadow of her failed marriage and ultimately that of her somewhat controlling mother If you enjoy meet cut [...]

Review Copy Provided by PublisherI ll admit it, I m a sucker for a bookcovers that have dogs on them my eye catches on them in bookstores and at the library So when I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing Pupcakes by Annie England Noblin, it was like yes please although, I ll be the first to admit that I m not a fan of pugs, there is just something about them Ms Noblin is a new author to me, but after reading Pupcakes, I can say that it won t be the last time I read something by her Th [...]

Posted on What I m ReadingOkay, I debated about taking Pupcakes, I wasn t sure I would like it I mean the blurb sounded interesting enough, but I worried it would be like Just Fine with Caroline, which was an okay book However, I m glad I took a chance on Pupcakes, because it was an adorable read At times it kind of reminded me of Fried Green Tomatoes, but a little different So, we have Brydie who is basically trying to get out of the fog that is her life She s pretty much apathetic, but it s ti [...]
I really loved this little book I saw it in Samsclub and if I m being honest, the sole reason I bought the book was because of the puggie on the cover I m partial to them, what can I say Brydie is a divorcee who feels like nothing in her life is going right She ends up in this house, with this dog a pug , working at a place that s like a Walmart bakery or somethingI won t go into details because I don t want to give the story away.It is a story that s been told beforeGirl s a mess, she meets guy [...]
