Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe, Jenny Colgan
Synopsis: Issy Randall can bake. No, Issy can create stunning, mouthwateringly divine cakes. After a childhood spent in her beloved Grampa Joe's bakery, she has undoubtedly inherited his talent. She's much better at baking than she is at filing, so when she's laid off from her desk job, Issy decides to open her own little café. But she soon learns that her piece-of-cake plan will take all of her courage and confectionary talent to avert disaster.
Funny and sharp, Meet Me at the Cupcake Café is about how life might not always taste like you expect, but there's always room for dessert!
Thoughts: One of the best chick lit novels I've read in a while. So many tangled relationships and subplots, but at least they were all wrapped up properly by the end. The main character, Issy, got a little annoying at times, mostly when she was being too nice to someone else. I loved the character of 2 yr old Louis, as well as the twin girls, Seraphina and Jane. And the recipes included were a great touch!!
