Publisher's Summary

Everybody dreams of a Hawaiian Vacation....

They sell you on the drinks with little umbrellas, dolphin watching, and long walks on the beach. Which probably happens, if you’re that lucky schmuck living out your dream with your destination wedding, but if you’re a fish out of water PI like me, there’s no time for relaxing because trouble is never far behind.  

Instead of cocktails, I ended up dealing with the seedy underbelly of The Big Island. And I didn’t see one damn dolphin while undercover on a boat, which was spilling over with drug dealers, kingpins, and pedophiles.   

Elin and Elena think Cade's family are the coolest people outside of Snapchat, but it’s hard to meet the parents when your boyfriend is in his late 30s and has never had a serious relationship.  

I’d never missed my girls so much in my life, but Amy May, Bea, and Carmen are all dealing with issues of their own and can’t come to my rescue.  

The only thing that may help me with this “vacation” is if I could get Lei’d with Cupcakes.

Warning: This book contains foul language, sex, some violence, and shenanigans. If none of that bothers you, grab a cupcake and listen!

More than just cupcakes!

Book three of this series is just as much fun as the first two, but does have an underlying more serious mystery than the others. Lila and her twins are invited to go to Hawaii with her boyfriend Cade to meet his family. But with Lila, it's not just an introduction! There is always more to her, between the No Sex Zone she has with Cade and the overheard conversation of Cades' younger sister, Lila leads us to humor and suspense! That is what makes this series so good. Bethany Lopez integrates a wonderfully, innovative sense of humor with a serious case that Lila is set out to solve. Her intuitiveness is stellar and always leads to a positive conclusion. I am enjoying this series immensely, though I am still waiting for some recipes for the delicious cupcakes that are always described! Kerian Kane gives a great performance, an enjoyable pace and a variety of voices. It's my first listen by her and it was a good introduction to her ability.

Unexpected, Heartwarming, and Passionate

I had no idea what to expect going into this audiobook, but I seriously LOVED every second of it!! All of the breathtaking twists and turns only magnified my enjoyment and enthrallment. The characters were real, and I loved how unique and fun they were there. This story had so much packed into it, and it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time! This series sounds incredible, and I can't wait to delve farther into it! Bethany Lopez has shown just how flexible and formidable of an author she is, and I fall in love each other her amazing stories! Her stories are real and pull at my heart in such a strong way that I am utterly swept away helpless and delighted. She is a fantastic author, and I can't wait to enjoy her next marvelous experience! The performance of this audiobook was fun and so very entertaining. I enjoyed every second of it! The narrator really brought this funny yet so very real mom to life, and I hung on every word. This was an experience that I hope to have again.

Fun and Steamy!

This is a fun, exciting, steamy romance. This quick listen has a little of everything, quirky characters, fun banter, a bit of suspense, and some steamy passion, all in a beautiful, tropical setting! I love this concept and wish I had started with book one, which I will definitely listen to. Kerian Kane did a nice job bringing this story to life. Her voice changes were distinct and her intonations are spot on. I really enjoyed this fun, exciting, and steamy romance!

Lei’d with Cupcakes

Such a quick and fun read! I love the obsession with cupcakes, I mean who doesn’t connect with that! I love the connection everyone in this family has, and I have to say Mama is a hoot! You have a little bit of drama and suspense but not too much to overwhelm someone who isn’t into that. Definitely worth listening!

Fun!

This was a fun story. It had more than a few laughs with this one. Delilah was a PI in the town of Greenwood. She went to Hawaii with her boyfriend Cade to meet his family with her twins. When they got there, more was in store for them than cupcakes. The narrator was great!

Funny & Suspenseful

Lei'd with Cupcakes picks up where Cupcake Overload left off. Cade, Lila and her twins take a trip to Hawaii to meet Cade's family. In true Lila fashion danger seems to follow her to the island. Her vacation turns into anything but relaxing when she discovers Cade's younger sister is in trouble. I really enjoyed this book, the Hawaiian backdrop, Cade's hilarious mom, and the situation Lila found herself in. I love that these books maintain the same main characters, so while each audio is 4ish hours long, it doesn't feel short because the plot is a continuation from the previous book. I adore Cade's mom, her humor, and laid back attitude (I'd probably be more relaxed too if the ocean were in my backyard). While the main characters are the same, the secondary characters also have their own side stories going to you can't help but become invested in. It is absolutely necessary to listen to or read the first 2 books in the series before this one, otherwise you'll be very lost. I enjoyed listening to this narrator, she's new to me but did a fantastic job.

Lei'd with Cupcakes

I definitely liked this series. It was a romantic thriller but also had bits of romcom around the more serious parts. I loved how funny the older couple was, and how well they took in their new "grandkids". Lopez also touched on big topics such as underage sex trafficking and drug running, she made the topics serious but still light enough that it didn't bring the book down.

Great Read

Lei'd with Cupcakes by Bethany Lopez was another great read by the author. Cade and Delilah are taking Delilah's twins to Hawaii to meet Cade's family. Even on a family vacation Delilah can't keep her private investigating skills at bay. Unfortunately it gets her in trouble. This was a great read.
