In Save the Cupcake!, Hayley's world is falling apart (her mom lost her job, they are living with Hayley's grandmother, and her best friend isn't acting like much of a friend). Her love of baking is the one constant in her life but a parent wants to ban cupcakes from the school. Maybe Hayley and some new friends can save the cupcake. Includes recipes. A sequel is scheduled to come out September 1st.
In Partners in Crime, Darcy and Norah create a detective agency website for a class project. Just for fun, they leave the page up and pretty soon they have an actual case! Someone wants them to track down a missing person - but someone else wants the girls to leave this case alone. Two more books in the series are due out this summer.
I enjoyed both books and I bought them for our library. I think my girls will enjoy reading them and I'm sure someone will try the recipes in Save the Cupcake! (Hopefully they will bring samples to school to share!)
4 out of 5 stars for both books
