There’s nothing that tastes better than a chocolate cupcake with fudge frosting, well I take that back, the only thing that tastes better than a chocolate cupcake with fudge frosting is one made by Piper Noble in the Poppin’ Fresh Bakery. Piper owns a bakery where she offers the best baked goods in Whistle Stop; business is doing so good that she is planning to expand to the vacant store next to her. However, her dream of expanding is cut short when news comes in the form of the gorgeous bachelo ...more

I just finished this 3 book series and can't wait for book 4. all 3 stories were full of warm funny, down to earth characters. their stories take place in a small struggling town. their stories are different, some had a hard childhood while some lucked out growing up. The main stay in their stories is you make your future you have to take that one chance at true love. I loved all the books!

If you have read any of the other books in the series you will not be surprised to learn how Ms. Faye has a way of connecting some of the most unlikely people to find true happiness.

Piper Noble is moving on with her life after cancelling her engagement with the Mayors son. What she discovered was that not only was he cheating on her but he was trying to turn her into something she was not. She was constantly watching her weight which was putting a stressful burden on herself not to mention tryi

I love small town romances. There’s just something about everyone knowing each other and the support the community has and as a reader, getting to know everyone. This is the third book in Jennifer Faye’s Whistle Stop series. I have not read the prior two books and while it was obvious I was missing some backstory on a couple secondary characters, it didn’t distract from this tale.

She finally has enough money put aside to put in an offer to buy the building. When Joe Montoya enters her bakery, he introduces himself as the man who just bought the building that she wanted. She tries every tactic to get him to sell it to her, but he won't budge. He's going to open a coffee shop and is determined to make it a success. They are both stubborn people who ha ...more

LOVED THIS BOOK! This is the third book in the Whistle Stop series and I am in love with Whistle Stop! I think I could live there.

I wanted to love this one, but it just fell a little flat for me. But based on the other reviews, I'm in the minority, so definitely read it for yourself! Whistle Stop was a charming town. :)

When they meet they are instantly attracted (and I love how Joe immediately stood up for Piper with her mom) but then find out they both want the same building that Joe purchased...then it was a continuous mix of they hate each other, find each other attractive, arguing about the fundraiser, Piper tries to h
I want to thank Jennifer Faye for holding the giveaway for one of her Whistle Stop Romance books. I was lucky enough to win A Moment on the Lips; book 3 in the series. In my opinion these are stand alone novels and you don't need to read them in order.

This story is Paige Noel's and Joe Montoya's story. From the moment they meet, they seem to rub each other the wrong way. It doesn't help that their first meeting was in Paige's business, Poppin' Fresh Bakery, with her mother embarrassing her by t

A Moment on the Lips follows the story of Piper and Joe. This is the first book in this series I have read. While the story does stand alone there were a few times things were mentioned about other characters that I wish the author had given a sentence or two more explanation. I think if I read the other books I would have understood more what was going on. It does not take away from the story of Joe and Piper.

I have to say, I don’t think I will forgive Ms. Faye for making me crave baked goods, specifically cupcakes, all through the book. Seriously, the goodies will call to you! Piper and Joe are both trying to help Whistle Stop (the town) come back through a revitalization, each in their own way.

A Moment on the Lips is the third book in the Whistle Stop series. It is the first book that I have read from this series and from this author. A sweet story with depth, this book is one of the few books that had me shed a few tears. It gave me "the feels". This community is small and caring, but it does have its drawbacks for the H/h. They both are trying to build and grow their businesses while changing the towns perspective of them. Both have been hurt deeply in the past and are leery of gett ...more

I nice small town story with a good romance included. The street fair was a good reason for Joe and Piper to spend time together. But I bet I am not the only one that wanted to say grow up and stand up for yourself. Both of them had issues that should have been addressed long before the end of the story. The bakery had some goodies that made my mouth water. The town sounded like any small town USA. Lots of nosy folks yet there when you need them.

And, spoiler alert: at one point in the book I was sobbing. When you read the book, you'll all know when that moment was. I won't say any more about that particular point.

Piper owns a bakery, and unfortunately for her weight, she stress eats. At one time, she had most of the weight off, but she was losing it for other people, not herself. Then, when she was betrayed, it was as if she didn't care anymore and the weight returned. Now, she lives with the humiliation and constant reminders of her

Oh man, I adored this one! The third book in Jennifer Faye's Whistle Stop Romance series, A Moment On the Lips is perhaps my favorite one so far.

When Piper, a woman hoping to expand her bakery into the shop next door, meets Joe, the newest resident to Whistle Stop, sparks fly. He immediately makes her feel special and beautiful and she hopes he may be the start of something great, but then she learns he bought the shop next door, dashing her dreams of expansion.

But Joe is back in town and now owns the spot. Joe’s coffee place is just what he needs to take control of his life and start over.

Another winner for Ms Faye’s series , A Whistle Stop. Even though it’s book 3 of the series, it can be read as a stand alone. If new to the series, you will meet some of the characters of previous books for the first time, if already a faithful reader, you will be happy to hear how they are doing . I certainly was.

I always enjoy my trips back to Whistle Stop, New Mexico! The comfort of seeing so many characters you recognize is great, the atmosphere is fun and it's just exciting to see who's story you're going to learn about this time! I loved the story, but I couldn't fall in love with the characters quite as much this time just because Joe kept irritating me with his hot and cold attitude towards Piper.
