Katie Warham has just one wish this year…to have the best Christmas ever!
If only she could lock herself away in a cloud of flour and sugar at her cosy little tearoom, Crumbtious Cakes, instead of spending the festive season trapped with her judgemental mother, crazy Aunt Gina and loved-up celebrity brother Carl…
But Katie never expected her ex-boyfriend, widower Sam – and his two adorable children – to turn up on her doorstep. She didn’t think that any man could tempt her under the mistletoe this year, but Sam might just prove the exception! And as the snow begins to fall and Katie puts the final touches to her famous Christmas cake, she begins to wonder, could her Christmas wish actually come true?
This holiday season, snuggle up by a roaring fire with a mulled wine and enjoy Darcie Boleyn’s festive winter warmer!
This story was a delightful tale of love, loss and Christmas cakes. I really enjoyed the easy, flowing narrative and the characters were a joy. I loved Katie as a main character, she was warm and likeable and I felt sorry for her having suffered so much loss in the past. Her crazy but loving family added a humorous dimension; I think everyone has someone in their family like Aunt Gina!
Sam was a delicious love interest. Like Katie, he’d also suffered loss and I loved seeing their relationship unfold. It was clear to see their connection was still there after all this time and I was rooting for them to have a happy ending. His relationship with his two young girls was really sweet and a great addition to the book. I think we’d all like to find Sam under our Christmas trees this year!
Wish Upon A Christmas Cake was a festive delight, perfect for snuggling up with on a cold winter’s evening. Add it to your TBR pile and you won’t be disappointed!
Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry at books and movies, whether the ending is happy or not. Darcie is in possession of an overactive imagination that often keeps her awake at night. Her childhood dream was to become a Jedi but she hasn’t yet found suitable transport to take her to a galaxy far, far away. She also has reservations about how she’d look in a gold bikini, as she rather enjoys red wine, cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescues uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop.
