After life takes five women on different paths, a death brings them home. But friendship might not be enough to keep them together.
When Bria Landon and her estranged father each inherit fifty percent of a small-town cupcake shop, her dad hires her worst enemy, and first love, to turn the place into a soulless franchise…or sell it.
To save her aunt’s legacy, Bria needs the help of people who love the bakery as much as she does—her old friends who worked there fifteen years ago. Except each woman is dealing with her own problem:
Juliet, who's trying to prove she’s more than a trophy wife; Missy, a widow who fears losing the job she loves; Nell, who's meddling mother won't stop playing matchmaker; and Selena, a life coach who excels at fixing everyone else's lives...but hasn't a clue what's missing in her own.
Each woman wants to believe their friendship can overcome anything. But as the Berry Lake Cupcake Posse reunite to save their beloved cupcake shop, they soon discover the undertaking will bring more trouble than they expected.

REVIEW By LAWonder10:
This was a delightfully fast paced beginning to an exciting new series - Berry Lake Cupcake Posse. This "posse" consists of five estranged friends who are brought back together at the death of a mutually beloved friend. After fifteen years, all their lives had changed into a very interesting varation.
This is a fascinationg culmination of individual lives, berievement, self discovery, conflicts, reconciliation, dysfunctional relationship, friendship, and much more.
With not only, their loved one's death, more discoveries and tragedies occur. The reader is left with several "cliff hangers" leaving him/her anxius for more.
The wrinting is exceptional, the characers feel real and "draws" the reader into the group. The scenes are portrayed very realistically and easily visualized. The Book Cover and image is very well chosen - simple, yet, eye-catching.
Surely this series will become a favorite and it is "clean"!
I ffer a Five Stars rating.
This book was gifted me with no pressure to offer a positive review. This is my honest review.
