Two best friends. One big lie. The best bake off EVER. Bella Bradley is the queen of television baking - a national treasure. Her Christmas specials have been topping the ratings for years and her marriage to Peter 'Silver Fox' Bradley is the stuff of Hello magazine specials. But this year things are going to be different. For Amy Lane, Bella's best friend from school, life hasn't held quite the same sparkle. And when Amy's husband walks out three weeks from Christmas, it seems their lives are further apart than ever. Amy has watched Bella's rise to fame fondly, despite the fact Bella was always a terrible cook. But when she realises that Bella's latest Christmas book is made up entirely of Amy's mother's recipes, the gloves are off... After winning a competition to appear on Bella's TV show, Amy is going to make sure that for Bella and her viewers, this will definitely be a Christmas to remember... A hilarious, heart-breaking and feel good read about best friends, baking and the magic of Christmas. What readers are saying about Sue Watson 'Laugh-out-loud funny, this book is exceptionally good.' Chick Lit Club 'I am a HUGE fan of Sue Watson and if you have a rather filthy sense of humour, and like a good giggle, her books don't fail to raise a smile.' Best Crime Books and More 'A talented chick lit author with fresh and unique voice and going on my list of all time faves.' This Chick Reads

Ok so the really reason that I decided to read Bella’s Christmas Bake Off is because I love Bake Off and have been missing it terribly. The title just called out to me and it was hard to resist. And I am glad that I did make time to read this fantastic little book because it was brilliant. And there was lots of food involved… (don’t judge!)

Not only are there some fantastic characters, but there is also a story told in a witty and quite delightful way. It’s the type of book that will leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling of satisfaction and joy.

There are humerus moments that will leave you with a smile on your face, and the occasional laugh out loud moments. But there are also the tender moments, the moments to stop and think about what is important – especially truth and friendship.

I adored Bella’s Christmas Bake Off and can say that it will be one of those books that I reread every Christmas without fail. A joy and a pleasure to read from beginning to end.
