Remember a while ago I read a lovely book by Carole Matthews called The Cake Shop in the Garden, I wrote about it here:
another-great-book.html Well this is the follow up book called Christmas Cakes and Mistletoe Nights.
I was so glad to hear that she had written another one as I loved the first book and I really needed to know how the characters would go on. I was so hooked I couldn't put either of these books down. Fay and Danny continue their love story and are away on The Dreamcatcher which is the name of the narrow boat that they decided to sail off into the sunset and start their life on. The cafe was left in the capable hands of Fay's friend and all was good. Fay started to miss her life and the baking and when she receives a call to return back to her old home she doesn't waste a moment.
She returns in a rush to one of her long standing friends sickbed and ends up staying for a while. Danny joins her later and she convinces him to stay for the foreseeable future. The cafe needs everyone's help to keep going through. a bit of a crisis and after some tough times there is a bit of light at the end of the tunnel. A happy ending?? Well you'll just have to read it and find out what happens.
You won't be disappointed, it really is again, a lovely easy pleasant read. and I just fell in love with all the characters. There is a fabulous new character working in the cafe and she just made me smile throughout this book. I'll leave you a link (affiliated) to Amazon. This book is still in hardback until later this year.
Thanks for reading today.......join me again tomorrow for my Verse for Thursday. Take care for now.
I'm becoming a bit of a fan of Carole Matthews and especially her books ever since one of her books was on the list to read at a local book club. They are nice easy reads which I like as I can't be bothered with anything to complicated, life can be very complicated and we all need a bit of an escape.
I love this book and think it may be my favourite so far. It tells the tale of Fay Merryweather and her life as a carer for her mum but also running a cake shop and cafe from her home. She's going along in life quite well until Danny Wilde moors his narrowboat on the canal at the bottom of the garden and causes a bit of a wirlwind shall we say.
I just couldn't put this down, I needed to know what was going to happen next and Carole does a fab job of keeping you interested and wanting more. There are some lovely characters in this book which makes it so heartwarming, the young girl who works with her is so funny and very lovable, I wish she really existed as I think everyone would love her around in their lives. Fay certainly has some huge choices to make here and hopefully she makes the right ones as life is too short and needs to be lived.
So if you're a fan of a story with happiness, bit of sadness, drama, passion and maybe a bit of romance then you need to read this book. I purchased it from Amazon so I'll leave a link (affiliated) at the end of this post. There are many books written by Carole, I'm actually onto another one so it seems I may be working my way through them all and there is a new one about to be released so I'd better get reading.
I'm giving this a massive 5 out of 5 on the teapot rating as I just loved it and haven't been this hooked on a book for a while.
Thank you for your time today, please join me again tomorrow as I will have a Verse for Thursday until then stay safe and warm in this very cold weather in the UK - Big Love xx
