“Our Eyes Met Over Cantaloupe” by Anne McAneny was great fun to read. The cast of characters were quirky, endearing and well developed. It was laugh out loud funny at times and enjoyable from beginning to end.
Millie Morris is a crime reporter for a local paper with aspirations of heading to Washington and the big leagues. When not reporting she helps out her mother, Grace, at her cupcake shop called The Secret Lives of Cupcakes and with her newspaper/website devoted to reconnecting people who had a chance encounter.
Much to Millie’s dismay the shop’s largest cupcake order is for a wedding between her ex, Sam, and the real estate lawyer he ditched her for. While Millie tries to deal with the situation with grace and dignity her ex seems to be having second thoughts.
With a supporting cast of wacky Pauline, her mother’s partner, Josh, the baker pining after his own close encounter and Laura, the evil lawyer these friends will keep you turning the pages. A very entertaining read!
