The Christmas Cake Cafe by Sue Watson

The Christmas Cake Cafe

From Goodreads

Heart-warming and hilarious, a story that will make you laugh, cry and bring a smile to your face.  Get ready for another deliciously amazing Christmas treat from Sue Watson….

As the Prosecco chills and Bing Crosby croons, Jen Barker just knows that her long-term boyfriend is about to propose.  But instead of a diamond ring nestled in her champagne flute, Jen finds cold flat rejection.  Her once perfect life and dreams of a husband and family seem even further from reach.

A working holiday to the Swiss Alps with her younger sister Jody might not be the Christmas Jen had it mind, but it offers her the chance to recharge her batteries and recover from heartbreak.

When Jen meets handsome ski instructor Jon Zutter her hopes for a happy-ever-after seem within her grasp again. Jon is kind and gorgeous and as they bond over Sachetorte at the picturesque Cake CafĂ©, Jen thinks he might just be her perfect man. But a relationship with him comes with a catch – and there are some things even cake can’t fix.

As the snow falls and Christmas approaches, could this be the place that restores Jen Barker’s faith in love?        

My thoughts

My thanks to NetGalley and the publishers Bookouture, for the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest review. I gave this a 4 star or 8/10.

As Jen's life as she knows it takes a nose dive, the happy ever after that she was expecting with her current partner doesn't materialise. She decides to venture out into a world of new adventure with her younger sibling Jody, a working holiday in the Swiss Alps appears to be the cure all for the time being.

Enter stage left, hunky foreign ski instructor Jon. Can he be the answer to all her current problems?
But as we are all well aware love doesn't always run smoothly for any of us and life once again starts to spiral out of control for Jen. Can she get her happy ever after or not?

Well written, this story is a breath of fresh Swiss mountain air. Grab your hot chocolate and settle back somewhere comfy to be taken on an adventure with Jen and Jon.
