Christmas at the Gingerbread Cafe by Rebecca Raisin

Christmas is the season the Gingerbread Café in Ashford, Connecticut 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! 


It's December which is usually the busiest time at the Gingerbread Cafe. Lily's feeling far from festive and then another problem arrives, a new store opens across the street. The owner, Damon, is gorgeous and he's stealing Lily's customers. With the help of her employee and good friend CeeCee Lily comes up with a plan to win back her customers, but she gains a lot more than only a few extra sales.
I fell in love with this novella straight away. The vivid descriptions instantly made the story come alive. I liked the main characters very much. They've all been given a lot of character. Their personalities feel real because of both their charms and flaws, which makes them sympathetic. The food talk was amazing, I could almost taste the gingerbread and the pies. This story is so cute and sweet, it's the perfect book for dreaming away about holidays and romance.
