Annie McPherson has had it with all the blind dates her grandmother and auntie set her up with. Her focus is the Sweet Indulgence cupcake bakery now.
Recovering from a gut-wrenching break-up, women are the last thing on Jack’s mind. After a quick stop to the new and upcoming cupcake shop to pick up cupcakes for his niece’s birthday party, Jack meets reserved Annie.
While helping him with his order, Annie notices his warm smile, the way he laughs when he gets icing on his fingers and then licks them like a big kid, and the cheesy grin when he realizes he’s been caught, and for a fleeting moment wishes he’d been one of her blind dates.
Jack leaves with the cupcakes but Annie’s twinkling eyes makes her hard to forget and for a brief moment he considers taking home something other than cupcakes. Annie watches him go but a little voice deep inside hopes he’ll return and this time for something other than cupcakes.
Exhausted after the grand wedding, Jack and Annie set off to California for their honeymoon only to be called back early because of a fire to the bakery. The fire is extensive and they aren’t sure if Sweet Indulgence can be saved. But the Powell’s don’t give up. As Jack and Annie rebuild Sweet Indulgence together, life throws them another much more pleasant surprise. One due in nine months.
Follow along with Jack, Annie and the rest of the Powells in book two of the Charleston Harbor Novels where you’ll smile a little, cry a little and root for the family in their ever quest to build a life together.
When a hurricane threatens to wreak havoc on the South Carolina coast, Annie battens down the hatches at Sweet Magnolia while Jack checks on Lady Powell down at the dock. But when Jack doesn't return promptly, Annie sets off in the rain and wind to find him. Her discovery hits her harder than the storm leaving her breathless and scared.
Laugh a little, cry a little as you follow along with Jack, Annie and the rest of the family in the third installment of the Charleston Harbor Novels.
