A sweet and satisfying novel of how delicious it is to discover your dreams

Having grown up in an apartment above her Grandpa Joe's little bakery, Issy Randal has always known how to make something sweet. 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 up her own little café. But she soon learns that her piece-of-cake plan will take all her courage and confectionary talent to avert disaster. Funny and sharp, Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe is about how life might not always taste like what you expect, but there's always room for dessert!

Re: Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe

This sounds like the type of read where a person will not only have a great time reading the story, but they'll put on a few pounds flipping the pages!! LOL I can't believe that you have 11 novels out there, all of those accolades, and this is the first that I've heard of you!! It sounds like I have some reading to do!! Seriously, I have to find your books, since all of them sound like great reads for this time of year, and I'm so glad that you came to this side of the pond to let us know that you're out there!! Congratulations on your latest book, and I have you down on my TBR list as we speak!!

How ironic that I was just writing down some recipes I found that I want to try, and I come across you with your new book with recipes in it!!! I found a recipe for chocolate chip cream cheese cookie bars that sounded really good and a few Amish recipes, etc. I'm always collecting recipes, so this would be just the book for me to read indeed, as I haven't read any of your great books...yet!
