Christmas at the Gingerbread Cafe - Rebecca Raisin

About the book... 
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 Cafe 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!

About the author... 
Rebecca Raisin is a true bibliophile.  This love of books morphed into the desire to write them.  She's been widely published in short anthologies, and in fiction magazines. And now she is concentrating on romance. 
Rebecca aims to write characters you can see yourself being friends with.  People with big hearts who care about relationships and believe in true love. 

My thoughts... 
I was asked by the author if I would be interested in reviewing Christmas at the Gingerbread Cafe.  Yes please!! I love a Christmas book, particularly as this weekend  I've done my first lot of Christmas shopping. I read half of the book before I went and half when I came back. It really was a welcome slice of Christmas - that just hit the spot. As with all good short stories the author gave you just enough - leaving me satisfied but wanting a little bit more. Her descriptions were so vivid I felt I knew the characters, particularly CeeCee and I could almost taste the cake and Gingerbread coffee - mmmm.  I can't wait for more from Rebecca and recommend this short story for anyone wanting to get in the mood for Christmas - heartwarming and yummy.
