After writing my review of Meet me at The Cupcake Cafe a few days ago I’ve also managed to sail through the sequel, it’s not very often I get this much time to read but I took full advantage of being on holiday!
This book is just as lovely as the first, and features some new gorgeous cupcake recipes, all of which I will be trying! My favourite being fizzy cola cupcakes. This book see’s Issy’s world turned upside down. The Cupcake Cafe is going from strength to strength and she has settled down with her perfect man and all is going well until Austin is offered a job in New York. Issy is torn between following him there and starting over again or losing him to keep running the cafe.
This is slightly shorter than the first book, but still has loads of storyline. It was lovely to continue the stories of all the characters and there are some really sweet and touching moments. As mum the relationships between some of the characters and their children and endearing and funny. It was a great book to read in the run up to christmas, as I’m already feeling rather festive!
The book leaves you feeling warm and happy and they characters feel like old friends I wish the cupcake cafe was real so I would o in and indulge in something yummy and read a book.
I can’t really find any faults with the book, it’s really good and I absolutely love all the characters. I just hope Jenny Colgan writes a third book in the series as I really want to know what happens next!
You’ll love this book if… You read the first one and loved it and like me you are becoming a bit of a chick-lit addict!
