Chocolate…the most irresistible temptation?

The Gingerbread Café is all a buzz! This Easter, Lily and the rest of the town of Ashford, Connecticut are planning a truly decadent Chocolate Festival. Cooking up a storm, CeeCee and Lily are not just baking a batch of their sinfully delicious chocolate-dipped gingerbread men, but an excess of chocolate truffles, squidgy, cinnamony hot cross buns and melt in your mouth chocolate eggs. The Gingerbread Café staff have definitely enjoyed the tasting process!

Add in Damon’s cute-as-a-button seven year old daughter, Charlie, up for a visit and Lily’s perfect Easter may just be around the corner. Until her ex-husband Joel turns up demanding twenty thousand dollars… Suddenly the future of the Gingerbread Café is not so clear…and Lily finds herself eating far more of The Gingerbread Café’s treats than her skinny jeans allow…

Can Lily concoct a brilliant plan to save her beloved café, convince Damon she has no feelings for Joel and still throw a Chocolate Festival the town will be talking about for years? There’s only one way to find out...

Welcome back to the warmth, cupcakes and hot chocolate of The Gingerbread Café – your home away from home

This is the second novella in The Gingerbread Café series


Love Love Love Love, I am so sorry but I just had to say that over and over. I was so excited when I found out Rebecca had written a second novella to the Gingerbread Cafe series, I loved the first one and couldn't wait to read more on Lily, Damon and CeeCee, This time it's Easter and Lily & CeeCee are getting ready for Easter baking lots of chocolate treats as the town of Ashford Connecticut are planning a truly amazing chocolate festival...very yummy indeed.

I just loved everything about this book, It was great to catch up with Lily, Damon and CeeCee straight away, I also love chocolate so while i was reading i was drooling so much. We also have a new face in this second book, being Damon's cute little seven year old daughter Charlie, which was so lovely to read the closeness between Lily and Charlie.
Disliked Joel very much, he is Lily's ex-husband and comes to Ashford to cause trouble for Lily and her beloved Gingerbread Cafe, but Lily will do anything to save her business and not let Joel get away with his nastyness.

I just love the style of Rebecca's writing and the chapters i felt i was flying through but enjoyed so much. I feel that i live in Ashford myself and that Lily & CeeCee are my friends, the characters come across so friendly, bubbly & like a good gossip. I would happily spend all day in that cafe, hehe.
didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it didn't like it  rating for this fab book and excited to read more from these lovely characters. You want to have a giggle, then this book is for you!
