Could Katie be set to lose her relationship and her dream job?
Then, one winter’s day, a man walks into her shop – and, in the space of that moment, the course of Katie’s life is changed. ?But nobody finds happiness in the blink of an eye. Sometimes it takes two Christmases, three birthdays and a whole lot of cake to get there …
Do you love fairytales?
You know those goodie baddie stories where there’s always a prince that finds his true love? We know there’s going to be a ‘happy ever after’ but that’s all part of the enjoyment. We can dive into the story head first and allow the writer play with all of our emotions knowing full well we’ll fall asleep with a smile of our face. These are the go to staples reads and one of the reasons that I both read and write romance. There’s no dead bodies or ghosts in the cupboard to jump out and scare the wotnots out of me. There’s good solid writing, a twisty turny plot with more surprises than a box of Quality Street and cake – lots and lots of cake.
Katie is the kind of baker I’d like to be. I’m master of the wonky cake and mistress of the pancake sponge!
Katie’s set up her own little cottage industry cake shop and then Adam walks into her life, dripping wet and with enough baggage to rival Mulberry. But Katie has rival baggage in the form of her partner and all round baddie Steve (sometimes baddie’s come disguised as grandma, but they’re baddies all the same).
Talking about grandma have I mentioned Grace; granny extraordinaire? There’s something magical about grandma but then again this is a fairytale….
