Heart-warming and hilarious, a story that will make you laugh, cry and bring a smile to your face. Get ready for another deliciously amazing Christmas treat from Sue Watson....
As the Prosecco chills and Bing Crosby croons, Jen Barker just knows that her long-term boyfriend is about to propose. But instead of a diamond ring nestled in her champagne flute, Jen finds cold flat rejection. Her once perfect life and dreams of a husband and family seem even further from reach.
A working holiday to the Swiss Alps with her younger sister Jody might not be the Christmas Jen had it mind, but it offers her the chance to recharge her batteries and recover from heartbreak.
When Jen meets handsome ski instructor Jon Zutter her hopes for a happy-ever-after seem within her grasp again. Jon is kind and gorgeous and as they bond over Sachetorte at the picturesque Cake CafE, Jen thinks he might just be her perfect man. But a relationship with him comes with a catch - and there are some things even cake can't fix.
As the snow falls and Christmas approaches, could this be the place that restores Jen Barker's faith in love?
The Christmas Cake Cafe showed the fun, spontaneous side of Christmas, and the idea of making the most of time and actually doing something rather than sitting around and waiting for something to happen. Sometimes you just have to get out of your own shell.
This was an engaging book, which left me with a smile on my face. It also made me really want to go to the Alps for Christmas. What with all the snow, cocktails, picture perfect scenes and hot chocolate. It sounded absolutely divine.
I loved how Jen and Jon romance played out. It was a sweet and tender relationship and it was lovely to see it blossom. It was also lovely to see how Jen and Jody’s relationship changed and how as sisters they became closer.
The Christmas Cake Cafe is a funny, laugh out loud type of book which shows that the perfect Christmas is what you want it to be not other peoples expectations.
