This December, Issy will have to rely on all her reserves of courage, good nature, and cinnamon, to make sure everyone has a merry Christmas, one way or another.…

Pleasant Update with a Christmas feel.

A sweet update to the first book and some resolution at the end. The narrator did a really good job of voices and made the story easy and pleasant to listen to.

Purchased two of Jenny Colgans books as I could not find my usual authors found them both so absolutely boring could not read it at all.

Great follow up

so very glad I didn't believe some of the reviews. it was lovely to find out what happened with all of the people from the first book. hopefully a 3rd book will follow as even though the storyline ended well it has an excellent opportunity for taking the caracters further.

EXCELLENT

I really loved listening to both cupcakes books. Was quite Disappointed when this one finished. I really do hope that there will be a third book in the series to find out what everyone is up to. Thank you Jenny for the great story line and characters , and Thank you Penelope Rawlins for the great narration of all the characters. I really loved them all. xx

More recipes and a story that pleases

A pleasant story and the continuing saga of the Cupcake Cafe. This is a well written and highly entertaining book. The Cupcake Cafe books contain recipes which anyone can try and the characters are charismatic and enchanting. Well done Jenny Colgan..please write some more!

Absorbing

Brilliant escapism. The way Jenny writes totally absorbs you into the world of her characters. If you loved the cupcake cafe you will enjoy this just as much.

Second in the series

This book is just as good as the first about the cupcake cafe.

When you start to read you get drawn back into the lives of the characters,

Some you would like to shake or even slap and others you want to hug and protect. Every emotion you can think of rides throughout this book.

Brilliant five stars.

narration spoiled it

I really enjoyed the story itself- I wish now that I had read it rather than listened to it. When the narrator spoke in her own voice as the main character it was great, but her attempts at the voices of the other characters was cringe-worthy!

A lovely story

Really enjoyed listening to this. A lovely follow up to the first story. Made me want to dust off my baking stuff and get back in the kitchen.
