Publisher's Summary

One day I was bebopping along, jamming to the music in my head while wondering if my thighs could handle grabbing a cupcake on the way home. The next thing I knew, my entire world crashed and burned.

I used to wake up at night in a sweat, crying because I'd dreamt that my husband was cheating on me or that he hated me and resented my kids. He'd always hold me close and tell me it was all just a dream, that he loved me and our family and that he'd never let me go.

He was a f--king liar.

Now I spend my days taking photos of scum just like him, trying to be a champion for others being taken advantage of by the losers in our town, and my nights being a single mom to my beautiful twins.

I've got great friends who have my back and a sexy, mysterious motorcycle man who keeps showing up when I need him. Maybe things are starting to look up, and one thing's for sure.... There's always room for cupcakes.

    "Great read"
    Any additional comments?

    Always Room for Cupcakes by Bethany Lopez was a great Read. Lila is a woman that many women can relate to. Although Lila has been brought down by her ex, he can't keep her down. This was a great read.

    Story
    "A more mature Stephanie Plum"
    What made the experience of listening to Always Room for Cupcakes the most enjoyable?

    "This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review."<br/>Wonderful writing, strong characters and a story line credible, funny, and tragic at the same time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lila's capability of making lemonade from those sour lemons life gave her and the lesson not to judge a book by its cover.


    Have you listened to any of Stephanie Garner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Definitely smile...


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't find the language used any stronger that many other books on the market and the sexual content was in tune with the story line and not used to create unnecessary drama.

    I download over 100 books a year. I don't even know how to go about my day without listening to a title. It's my happy place!

    "This book needs to be a series!"
    Any additional comments?

    This listen was the perfect blend of light-hearted comedy with a strong female lead and the best male specimen ever. When it was over, I wanted more.<br/><br/>There were a variety of relationship entanglements that kept the listen interesting and the story flowing. The narrator was really good as well.<br/><br/>The only downside to this listen is that there is no book two. I would love to see Delila, the main character, as a full time PI. Her supporting cast had some interesting backstory's as well. I know this author does books in a series so I can only hope. Fingers crossed.

    "yummy cupcakes! and a lot of fun thrown in"

    I thought this was going to be a short cozy kind of novel. But it wasn't. :) It was a very good story, highly entertaining, and down right funny in some parts.
    I loved Lillia! She is very witty and and fast mouthed.
    I would recommend this to anyone, who wants a fast paced, short story that you can listen all in one sitting.. and It has a some great sex in it, but its not overloaded with it. oh, and shares a love for cupcakes. :)

    "Awesome!"

    I loved this book! There is humor, room for cupcakes, and a love story. I found this book to be original and it kept my attention. I enjoyed most all details of this book (just not what happened to Moose). The narrator did a great job with the various characters and added to the story. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at my request.

    "Fun Book!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book that is written by Bethany Lopez and narrated by Stephanie Garner. Lila is a divorced mom of twins who is trying to make ends meet. She goes from being a stay at home mom, to an investigative photographer who takes photos of cheating scum bags who are cheating on their wives. If you are looking for a great book with humor, then you need to read this book.<br/><br/>The narrator Stephanie Garner did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end. <br/><br/>If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator. <br/><br/>A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

    Story
    "An interesting story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Always Room for Cupcakes to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the book yet but I did purchase it as I have enjoyed the audio and the story!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character was my fav. Why? Because she didn't lose herself after her husband cheated on her. She found herself in a situation where most women would sit and cry. But she knew she has to be strong for her kids. And I love her new occupation!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Stephanie Garner?

    I don't know to be honest. Her narration wasn't bad it was just hard to decipher between the characters sometimes as they all sounded pretty the same.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would say in 2 sittings. After few hours I had to stop because of the narration.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the story. It was funny, different and definitely one that makes you enjoy the book/audiobook. The characters were well developed and also the story didn't have any lose ends.

    Story
    "A more mature Stephanie Plum-fun and entertaining!"
    Would you listen to Always Room for Cupcakes again? Why?

    No, I wouldn't listen to Always Room for Cupcakes again. I rarely listen to books more than once, so this isn't a reflection of the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This whole story revolves around Lila and I have to say that she was definitely my favorite character. If you've read Janet Evanovich, she's like a sassier, more mature (stronger language) Stephanie Plum. She calls her ex-husband "The Douche" throughout the book when referencing him. I enjoyed her a lot.


    What does Stephanie Garner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think that Stephanie Garner did a good job with this narration. She's got a solid, strong voice and I could easily differentiate between the various characters. A good narrator can make or break an audiobook. She brought strength and sass to Lila and brought a realness to the the characters.


    Who was the most memorable character of Always Room for Cupcakes and why?

    Again, the most memorable character for me in this book would have to be Lila for the reasons that I already mentioned above.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't let the title fool you! This sounds like a cute novel with NO language and everything very vanilla. Haha...Seriously, if you like Janet Evanovich, you should enjoy this one as well. I could definitely see the author developing these characters more and making this into a series. <br/><br/>I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
