Christmas at the Gingerbread Cafe – by Rebecca Raisin

Original Cover
My own copy
The blurb:

Christmas is the season the Gingerbread Café was made for…but owner Lily couldn’t be feeling less merry if she tried. She’s spent another year dreaming of being whisked away on a sleigh-ride for two, but she’s facing festive season alone – again. And, just to give her another reason to feel anything other than candy-cane perky, a new shop across the road has opened… Not only is it selling baked goods, but the owner, with his seriously charming smile, has every girl in town swooning.

But Lily isn’t about to let her business crumble — the Gingerbread Café is the heart of the community, and she’s going to fight for it! This could be the Christmas that maybe, just maybe, all her dreams – even the someone-to-decorate-the-Christmas-tree-with ones – really do come true!

My Opinion:

What a lovely, cute and wonderful novella, with a drop dead gorgeous cover.

Lily is a great and relatable character with a big heart. She is still pining over her past and what she had there.

Oh and Damon! Well, BOOK BOYFRIEND ALARM!!! He’s hot, sweet, caring, kind…

There off on a rocky start, as Damon and his café are becoming a competition for the Gingerbread Café. Their attraction for each other is obvious from the start and loved how Lily wanted to stay away from him. They get closer anyway and Lily discovers that something is bothering him, but what?
When Lily finds out, she has a great way to deal with it.

It’s great how their relationship develops and they get closer and closer and everything around this lovely small town atmosphere around Christmas. Perfect!!!

CeeCee is such an adorable friend/mum to Lily and I loved them together.

Such a sweet, flirty and fun story, with lots of emotion and heart. 
It’s the perfect festive read, it transfers warmth, love and friendship.

The whole series is wonderful, you're in for a treat with each one of them!
