The most wonderful time of the year?
Katie Warham has just one wish this year…to have the best Christmas ever!
If only she could lock herself away in a cloud of flour and sugar at her cosy little tearoom, Crumbtious Cakes, instead of spending the festive season trapped with her judgemental mother, crazy Aunt Gina and loved-up celebrity brother Carl…
But Katie never expected her ex-boyfriend, widower Sam – and his two adorable children – to turn up on her doorstep. She didn’t think that any man could tempt her under the mistletoe this year, but Sam might just prove the exception! And as the snow begins to fall and Katie puts the final touches to her famous Christmas cake, she begins to wonder, could her Christmas wish actually come true?
This holiday season, snuggle up by a roaring fire with a mulled wine and enjoy Darcie Boleyn’s festive winter warmer!
Wish Upon a Christmas Cake is very much a story of loss and true love with a sprinkling of Christmas thrown in for good measure.
Katie has never really got over her first love Sam, they have a lot of history together so when she turns up at a wonderful manor house which has been hired out especially for a family get together for Christmas with her family and Sam is there, lets just say she is faced with a whole load of emotions that come rushing to the surface.
Katie is a woman with her head screwed on, she has put all her time and effort into setting up a business with her good friend Anna and had started to give up ever finding a man to live happily ever after with, that is until of course Sam comes back into her life. She has a wonderful bond with her brother Karl and was also very close to her granny whose death she is still coming to terms with.
I loved reading about Sam’s two children, Holly and Jack. They are such sweet and adorable children who really pulled on my heart strings.
Even though essentially this is a romance novel, to me it had a lot more of a deeper meaning and certainly is not your typical girl meets boy story. The author touches on a couple of things that sadly occur in real life which made it a lot more realistic and not your typical fairy tale.
Wish Upon a Christmas Cake is a lovely book and one I can highly recommend.
