The icing on her Christmas cake!
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 Café 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!
Lily is trying to keep herself busy working at the Gingerbread Cafe. Her cafe is doing pretty well until a new cafe opens across the road and she feels threatened by the owner, who happens to be a very handsome and witty guy.
It was a very sweet Christmassy novella. Even though it was a short and left you wanting more, it still managed to have a good Christmas vibe and all the characters were interesting, so the book didn’t feel rushed or flat. I’m happy that there are two more books in the series, I am eager to read more about Lily and Damon.
