It’s been so lovely to be part of Annette’s author journey. We’ve talked many times about our writing and still have lots of celebrate together. When I was asked to be part of the blog tour for The Cosy Little Cupcake Van there was no way that tour was going ahead without me.
About the book
Camilla’s delicious cakes are the talk of her little village. If you need a perfectly iced mouthful of joy, Camilla ‘Cupcake’ is your woman. But after losing her mother, she finds her home and her business in jeopardy. She needs a little helping hand…
Thankfully her friends are always there for her, and when she is given an old ice cream van, Camilla’s dream of a cupcake delivery service is born. Now she can bring happiness – and buttercream frosting – to the whole town.
But when her ex Blake appears back on her doorstep, Camilla must decide if she can trust him again or if her heart might belong to someone else…
Bursting with romance and sprinkled with humour, this is a deliciously feel-good story about one woman putting her life back together, one cupcake at a time. Perfect for fans of Cathy Bramley, Ali McNamara and Rebecca Raisin!
So what did I think?
Well, I absolutely adored it. There were so many characters I loved in her first book Wedding Bells at the Signal Box Cafe who I felt I knew really well by the end of that book, so it was great to be back with some of them in the second book in the series. However if you haven’t read the first, you can still absolutely read this as a standalone but if you know anything about me, you know I’d never jump into a series without reading them in order.
I could totally empathise with the main character Camilla who has gone through such a lot over the last few years and I really enjoyed reading about her journey in this book and routed from her from the moment we met her. The village location is just gorgeous! I definitely would love to visit there and probably never want to leave
Annette has a really lovely, easy-to-lose-yourself writing style with her natural humour and realism threaded all the way through, that keeps you turning those pages whilst licking your lips at all the cake descriptions!
It really was a perfect lockdown escapist read that I would highly recommend.
