Introducing Pumpkin Spice Secrets by Hillary Homzie

Fall is my favorite season...and it wouldn't be fall without pumpkin spice EVERYTHING! If you're a super-sweet cafe coffee drink lover like me, the cup of coffee on Hillary Homzie's new book will bring some cravings! Hillary is a fellow Aladdin author who is releasing her first book with Sky Pony Press's Swirl line. Scroll down to read all about it.



Blurb:


Sometimes secrets aren't so sweet...


Just as Maddie picks up her pumpkin spice frappe from the coffee shop counter, she spills it all over the cute boy behind her. Talk about mortifying! Luckily, the boy -- Jacob -- is also friendly and easygoing, and soon Maddie is deeply in crush.

But before she can tell her best friend Jana about him at lunch the next day, Jana announces her huge new crush -- on Jacob! Maddie doesn't want to cause trouble, so she keeps her feelings hidden. Jana will get over him soon, right?

Add major school stress to Maddie's secret, and it's a recipe for disaster. Can she stay true to both her friend and her heart... without it all turning into a sticky mess?

    1. Yes, for sure but I'd say that the spice is only in the pumpkin lol. Although there's definitely best friend/crush drama, for sure.

    1. Thanks, Ro. I appreciate that coming from a non-pumpkin person lol! The pumpkin part is definitely the cute meet scene in the first chapter. So while I can't guarantee a pumpkin free read, I think it's not too pumpkin-y. There's actually quite a bit of chocolate references in the book as well.

    2. I'm not much of a pumpkin fan, either--coming clean here! I do LOVE fall, though, so I get excited about pumpkin stuff because it means my favorite time of year is here.

    1. YAY! So happy to have you. I was a little confused because the Kindle version doesn't come out until the 24th, so I'd originally moved this post to then. Then I saw the paperback came out first. But either way, the 24th is when it automatically delivers to my Kindle and I get to start reading it! I can't wait, if you can't tell!
