STILL STRUGGLING WITH SOME PROBLEMS THEYstruggling with some problems They t get enough doughnuts made to keep up with demand and disappointed customers are starting to Norwegian Wood leave negative comments on their website Tris mother s restaurant and the rest of the town however has the opposite problem not enough customers and businesses closing in the town The solution to both problems might come from the television cooking show Can You Cut It If Tris could get on the show the prize money could be used to buy a doughnut robot and there would be good publicity for the town While Trisoves to cook he is ess than "Thrilled About Being On The Show Especially " about being on the show especially one of the hosts Cheff JJ turns out to be someone who worked with his mother in the city and wasn t very fond of her Despite competitions involving dicing onions putting together a dish with only one ingredient and navigating the reality show drama some participants are intent on bringing Tris perseveres knowing that Petersville is counting on him Back in town residents are painting coming up with new businesses and investigating publicity opportunities Will all of it be enough to keep things goingStrengths I ove the discussions of Tris and Josh s business model and the fact that they are really trying to run a successful business Tris even reaches out to a possible investor who has revitalized another small town which shows a ot of initiative Books about children who DO things are always my favorite and the altruism of wanting to save Petersville when Tris originally was not happy about moving there is nice to see The town itself sounds ike a fun place to be with interesting and unusual characters Tris friends and family are all invested in his success and everything that happens seems possible if slightly far fetched This is a happy positive book about working hard in order to succeed even when things don t always go your way Weaknesses There s Circle of Blue less focus on the family now which I sort of miss Tris sisters and parents were all fairly amusing but there wasn t enough time to include their issues when The Doughnut Stop and Petersville had so much going on I guess my one uibble would be this if Tris mother s restaurant isn t doing well why doesn t she put of her effort into The Doughnut Shop From the point of the story we want Tris to be the one to save the day but from the point of the family s continued existence in Petersville wouldn t that make senseWhat I really think Definitely glad to have this series to hand to readers and suspect there is one book that could be written about Tris and Petersville I received an electronic review copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my ownA delight from start to finish I adored this seuel to the terrific The Doughnut Fix This has the same great characters and the same heart and humor But the story arc for Tris is stronger and richer Tris wrestles with his identity and tries to find his way through a reality TV cooking show that challenges his character even than his cooking skills And while not perfect Tris absolutely shines through it all Highly recommend What s not toike Kids running. Superfudge meets The Lemonade War in the second book of this charming funny and heartwarming series about growing up family change and as always doughnuts Tris Levin thought moving from New York City to middle of nowhere Petersville meant ife would definitely get worseonly it actually got better But just when things are ooking.

Be Read As A Standalone I Wouldread as a standalone I would advise reading the first book as it will help you to understand how Tris got to where he is now and what he went through to become doughnut famous The book was a uick read and so enjoyable from beginning to end Because I had already The Well-hung Gun (The Squirm Files, learned so much about Tris his family and friends in the first book I found being back in their presence such a delight and was eager for Tris to do well in the competition I was also happy to be backistening to his talented and extremely clever Powers of Darkness little sister JeanineThere is so much charm in this story and I just didn t want it to end I do hope that there will be books in the series as they have both been superb reads and have had some very heart warming moments alongside someaugh out Quitter Son Pays loud ones too I also adore the recipes at the back of the books and can t wait to try out the ones in this book One warning though reading this book might just make you hungry Tris is a typical boy in a small town that is if typical boys have cooking shows as their favorite things to watch and run a doughnut shop after school and on weekendsThis is the follow up book to the first book about Tris where we find out what happened after he created the perfect doughnut In this story he goes on a reality tv cooking show to win money to get a doughnut machine so he can make his recipe faster to keep up with demandThe head chef has it out for Tris Really enjoyed this fun MG about a cooking contest small townife and a boy who can Up problems start rolling inHis doughnut business has a major supply issue And that's not the worst part Petersville has its own supply problem it doesn't have enough people Folks keep moving away and if they can't get people to stay Petersville may disappearPetersville needs to become a tourist destination and his shop could be.
