Some Kind of Wonderful review

Some Kind of Wonderful is a holiday novella by Beth Ciotta set in her Cupcake Lovers world. The novella takes place in Sugar Creek, VT and can be read as a standalone without the other books in the series.

Fun and poignant, Some Kind of Wonderful features injured Marine Zach and his childhood best friend Maya. It's a little bit Christmas Carol, a little bit Cyrano de Bergerac, and a whole lot of cupcakes.

Zach hasn't truly lived in Sugar Creek since leaving for the Marines and Maya has a successful cupcake business in Orlando but they will be reunited at Christmas thanks to Zach's aunt and uncle. One small problem - Maya's friend, Giselle, has come along for the visit and the sexy letters that Zach has been receiving from Giselle were really written by Maya!

Some Kind of Wonderful is a short but sweet story about two friends and how they might find love along with a good dose of holiday cheer, family, and the wonderful residents of Sugar Creek.


Growing up in Sugar Creek, Maya Templeton and Zachary Cole were best friends. After high school, each went out into the world in search of adventure. Maya moved to Florida to explore her passion for baking and pastry-making, eventually establishing her own business: Cupcakes & Dreamscapes. Zach joined the military and became a Marine Scout Sniper. Now, after years apart, they’re both going home for the holidays. They don’t seem to have much in common anymore. In fact, Zach seems to have the hots for Maya’s business partner. But when the two get stranded together during a blizzard, they are forced to reexamine their connection. Are Maya and Zach better off “just friends”—just as they were when they were young? Or could it be that true love was there all along?
