Scrapbook Novel: “Scrappy Cupcake Angels” by Kristah Price

Send to Kindle

After my LATEST POST about loving to read SCRAPBOOK NOVELS, I was very blessed to be contacted by another author asking if I’d like a copy of her book! Of course I said YES. What, am I crazy?

The book is called “SCRAPPY CUPCAKE ANGELS” and it’s written by KRISTAH PRICE.

Nothing can quell Angeline Dunwich’s excitement as she stands before Wattle Lane Keepsakes. As she opens the door to her scrapbooking shop for the first time, Angeline hopes to encourage the residents of her small New Zealand town to explore their creativity and capture memories. Little does she know that Wattle Lane Keepsakes will very soon become the weekly destination for four women drawn to scrapbooking for widely different reasons.

Every Thursday Angeline teaches the Scrappy Cupcake Angels how to find joy through scrapbooking, and each of the four learns to confront her fears and to understand what is important in life. As Grace works on a scrapbook for her mother who has dementia, she wonders if it will help her mother cling to her last memories. Tegan scraps her travel photos with an insatiable wanderlust while contemplating where her heart really belongs. As Jodi creates beautiful layouts of her daughter, she questions whether any of her efforts will help mend her broken family. Kayla finds it easiest to express herself through her art, but secretly speculates whether she will ever gain the confidence to realise her dreams.

As Angeline opens her home and her heart to her new friends, only time will tell if the Scrappy Cupcake Angels can help her overcome her own greatest fear and fulfil a lifelong dream.

Okay, you know I’m always honest with you. The title and cover of this book threw me off. I . . . erm . . . judged a book by its cover and assumed because they are so – what? – cutesy? – that I wouldn’t like this book.

But again: I was wrong. {I know, I know, it happens occasionally!} This week, I started reading it anyway and I’m really enjoying it! It’s not cutesy at all, at least not so far. I’ve met the owner of the store on the opening day of her shop along with the 4 ladies who will become her close friends. And I look forward to getting to know them all better.

This scrapbook novel has no murdered CK Hall of Fame’ers, no big mystery to be solved, just a nice story about friendship and scrapbooking. I love that it’s set in New Zealand which is a country I don’t know much about but have always been intrigued by.

So I just wanted to let you know about this book. It’s only $3.99 for Kindle right now and I don’t know how long that price lasts.

I noticed on Kristah’s site that she said:

I am currently working on a second Wattle Lane Keepsakes novel, which is centred around a new main character, but includes some of the same characters from Scrappy Cupcake Angels.

Yippee! I hope it’s coming out soon. I have a feeling when I finish this book, I’ll want to keep reading more. And when I do finish, I’ll write a complete review and find out from Kristah how Book 2 in this series is coming along :)

I got the Kindle version and you can also get it in hardcover (kinda’ pricey?) and paperback. If you read this book, I’d love to hear what you think of it.

Happy scrappy reading!

    No murdered CK’ers, lol. Sounds like a cute book though, thanks for sharing! I probably would have judged it too but now I am craving a cupcake!

    Thanks for sharing when you hear about these scrapbook-themed books. I enjoyed the first one (was it Cropped to Death)?, looking forward to the sequel, and just purchased this one!
