Christmas at Carly’s Cupcakes by Jessica Redland

Thank you to Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to join the blog tour for this gorgeous book by Jessica Redland. Having recently read and enjoyed Starry Skies Over The Chocolate Pot Cafe, I was thrilled to return to the Castle Street again so soon.

Synopsis:

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…


It’s December on Castle Street; the fairy lights are twinkling, snow has settled and the festive season is in full swing.


For Carly, the owner of Carly’s Cupcakes, it’s the busiest time of year getting everyone’s Christmas treats ready on time. However with her clumsy sister, Bethany, as a co-worker, it’s proving a difficult task. They say you shouldn’t mix work with family. Maybe they have a point…

As Christmas approaches, Carly is also eagerly awaiting the return of her best friend to Whitborough Bay. Liam has no idea he’s been the object of her affection since their schooldays. After years of pining after him, can Carly pluck up the courage to finally tell him how she really feels by 25th December?

Could a little festive magic make all of Carly’s wishes come true this Christmas…?

A heartwarming, short festive story of friendship and family from bestseller Jessica Redland. You can find out what happens to Carly next through exploring her best friend Tara’s story in Starry Skies Over The Chocolate Pot Café.

This is a new and updated version of Christmas at Carly’s Cupcakes which has been previously published.

My thoughts:

Thanks to Jessica Redland for creating another lovely story set in Castle Street with a festive vibe. Carly is a talented cake maker/decorator who is trying to help her sister, Bethany, recover from a traumatic incident, and get ready for her impending wedding.

This is a lovely festive story, full of cakes, wedding preparations, falling in love, the Castle Street community, and making snow angels. I curled up on a Sunday afternoon to read this with a mug of hot chocolate and a snoring dog – a lovely way to relax after a hectic week. This is an uplifting read which left me feeling happy (and craving cake).
