This week I've been reading this adorable book
Meet me at the Cupcake Cafe
by Jenny Colgan
I haven't ready any of Jenny's books before & this one caught my eye, firstly with it's fab pink colour, (I'm like a magpie for pink sometimes!) and secondly it's name!
So cupcakes & pink what wasn't there to like about this book? Well ok the story could have been bad as we really shouldn't judge a book by it's cover ... but when it's such a cute cover ... *eek*
Anyhoo I wasn't disappointed, I really enjoyed this book. It's obviously a girly girls book I think & not to spoil the end, but I don't think I would be giving anything away by saying it's a happy ever after type ending!
It's all about a 30 something girl who when she is fired from her job has the idea that she wants to do something she loves & that something she loves is baking cakes! So it will come as no great suprised that the Cupcake cafe is born! It really is a sweet tale about friendships, love & yes cakes!
The book is also filled with wonderful cake recipes as Issy's beloved Grandfather, who used to be a baker writes his recipes down & posts them to her & each chapeter starts with one of his recipes!
It is a lot of fun & if you are a girly girl who loves cakes this certainly is a cute summer read for you ...
