Book Review: Christmas Wedding at the Gingerbread Cafe by Rebecca Raisin

Title: Christmas Wedding at the Gingerbread Cafe
Author: Rebecca Raisin
Publisher: Carina UK
Publication Date: 15th October 2014


You are invited to the wedding of the year!

Snow is falling thick and fast outside the Gingerbread Café and inside, its owner Lily is planning the wedding of the year. Her wedding! She never dreamt it would happen, but this Christmas, she’ll be marrying the man of her dreams - in a Christmas-card-perfect ceremony!

The gingerbread is baking, the dress is fitted and the mistletoe’s in place – for once, everything’s going to plan. That is until her mother-in-law arrives... Suddenly, Lily’s famous cool is being tested like never before and her dream wedding is crumbling before her eyes.

In the blink of a fairylight, the Gingerbread Café has been thrown into chaos! Lily thought she had this wedding wrapped up, but with so much to do before she says ‘I do’, can Lily get to the church on time – and make this Christmas sparkle after all?

I first started reading The Gingerbread Cafe series in January and I have loved the series ever since. As much as i love Christmas and the cover for this book 
is so beautiful, I was dreading reading as I knew its the last book in the series and I love all these characters ever so much!

So Christmas Wedding at the Gingerbread Cafe is about all  Lily's and Damon's wedding, the days leading up to the wedding are always the most nerve wrecking, Especially when Damon's mother arrives and Lily's patience is going to be tested for sure.

I just loved this book ever so much! CeeCee and Missy certainly had me in fits of giggles at times! I wished I could go to the gingerbread cafe every day, the way the gingerbread cafe is described in this book for Christmas is just amazing, I wish I could see the Gingerbread Christmas Tree in person myself.

I definitely cried when Lily was walking down the isle to meet her husband to be Damon..I listened to so many love songs while reading Christmas Wedding at the Gingerbread Cafe but the one that sticks in my mind all the time now is One Thousand Years..it is the most beautiful and amazing song, the tears certainly flow! It was great to catch up with other characters from the little town of Ashford.

My Favourite Character? I cannot choose just one Character as I love them all the same and I always feel like I know them all in person..you will understand when you read the books :-)

I don't want to give too much away in this review as I want all the readers to appreciate the book themselves and enjoy the characters just as much as I do..But I can promise you will laugh, you will cry,you will smile a lot and you will feel all festive throughout the book.

Rebecca is the most amazing writer and friend I have ever known. The books Rebecca writes always entice her readers and gets the readers excited while reading. I wished Rebecca's books werent just e-books as if I saw her books in paperback form on the shelves I would be squealing for joy as the covers are always beautiful and would stand out so much!

Christmas Wedding at the Gingerbread Cafe is 5 Festive Amazing Beautiful Twinkling Christmas Stars

Perfect Christmas Read of 2014!

Echoes Of Scotland Street(On Dublin Street #5) by Samantha Young Blog Tour: Review

Today marks the publication date of Echoes of Scotland Street book in ebook & paperback in the US and just Ebook in the UK (Paperback out in January 2015 UK)

I am so happy to be part Echoes of Scotland Street's Blog Tour, I was asked and sent the book by the lovely Clara Diaz, She know's I am such a huge fan of Samantha's book and have read and reviewed every single book in the On Dublin Street Series.

What got me all excited about EOSS was the fact it was about Cole Walker who is much older now and so damn sexy hehe! For huge fan's of the On Dublin Street will have read about Cole in Down London Road with his sister Jo. 

Shannon MacLeod has always gone for the wrong type of man. After she drifted from one toxic relationship to the next, her last boyfriend gave her a wake-up call in the worst possible way. With her world shattered, she's sworn off men - especially those of the bad-boy variety.

Cole Walker is exactly the sort that Shannon wants to avoid - gorgeous, tattooed, charming, and cocky. But his rough exterior hides a good man - one who's determined to pull Shannon from her self-imposed solitude and win her heart.

As Shannon begins to open up, the passion between them ignites to blazing levels. But when her past comes back to haunt her, her fears may destroy the trust Cole has built between them - and tear them apart for good . . .

I absolutely adored reading Cole and Shannon's story so much! Samantha Young really knows how to get her readers so sucked into her books..by the end of the books you always feel lost and know that you've just finished a really good book.


You First read about Cole in Down London Road with his sister Jo and Cam, now Echoes of Scotland Street is about Cole Walker as he is older. At 15 years old Cole was a broken boy who's mother was a drunk but his sister Jo took the role of mum and looked after Cole throughout his young years but now Cole is back...Cole Walker just seems a bit of jack the lad with the cocky attitude and full of tattoos as he is a tattooist but he is a big softie at heart which is so lovely to read about in EOSS. He may come across as a bit scary too but he is loving and caring towards Shannon its cute!

Shannon Macleod I felt I could really relate to her with her past boyfriends just as mine. She could be an inspiration for all women out there. I was so squealing for joy with her and Cole all the way through the book. They are a match made in heaven couple for sure!

Eeeeek its always good reading the new On Dublin street series book as you always get to read what the other the characters from the other books with what they have been upto.

Echoes of Scotland Street is just a fantastic and amazing book. You will have plenty of laughs with the chemistry between Cole and Shannon. but also you see new faces in Simon, Stu, Rae, Tony, Logan, Amanda, Tamara, Jessica all make this book so enjoyable to read.

Samantha Young you have done it again, writing an amazing and enjoyable read! Can't wait for Logan's book hehe!
♥Echoes of Scotland Street is a 5 star rating for being amazing, irresistible, enjoyable and a page turner. didn't like it        didn't like it        didn't like it       didn't like it       didn't like it       

Go buy this book now as you won't regret it.....!

Book News: Christmas in the Snow by Karen Swan

How Pretty does this cover look? 
Karen Swan is back this winter with a new Christmas book! 
Who's excited!?!

No secret stays buried forever...

In London, the snow is falling and Christmas is just around the corner - but Allegra Fisher barely has time to notice. She's pitching for the biggest deal of her career and can't afford to fail. And when she meets attractive stranger, Sam Kemp, on the plane to the meeting, she can't afford to lose her focus either. She learned to shut off her emotions long ago and only her sister and best friend Isobel knows why. But when Allegra finds herself up against Sam for the bid, their passion quickly turns sour.

In Zermatt in the Swiss Alps, a long-lost mountain hut is discovered in the snow after sixty years and the last person expecting to become involved is Allegra - she hasn't even heard of the woman they found inside. But it soon becomes clear the two women are linked and, as she and Iz travel out to make sense of the mystery, hearts thaw and dark secrets are uncovered, long buried by the snow.

With glamorous locations and heart-breaking twists, Christmas in the Snow is all you need in your stocking for a truly decadent Christmas holiday.
The perfect gift - even if it's just to yourself.

Christmas in the Snow is out 6th November
