Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe

Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan
The official blurb:

“Issy Randall, proud owner of the Cupcake Cafe, is in love and couldn’t be happier. Her new business is thriving and she is surrounded by close friends, even if her cupcake colleagues Pearl and Caroline aren’t quite as upbeat about the upcoming season of snow and merriment. But when her boyfriend Austin is scouted for a possible move to New York, Issy is forced to face up to the prospect of a long-distance romance. And when the Christmas rush at the cafe – with its increased demand for her delectable creations – begins to take its toll, Issy has to decide what she holds most dear.

This December, Issy will have to rely on all her reserves of courage, good nature and cinnamon, to make sure everyone has a merry Christmas, one way or another . . .”

This is a fun and very festive follow-up to the lovely Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe. It can be read as a stand-alone novel but since I loved the first one, I recommend you read both.

I’ve got into a habit of trying to read a Christmas-sy book at Christmas and this one is perfect, with the bonus of partly being set in New York – a city that takes Christmas seriously!
