Sweet as a cupcake, 5 Jun. 2011
I have read a few of Jenny Colgan books before and this one did not dissapoint me! Firstly a books cover always draws me to buy a book (i no it shouldn't!) but this one with the bright baby pink colour and beauitful cupcake cartoons is great. The story is quite fast paced and follows Issy who just lost her job, pursue her dream and the family tradition of opening a bakery. I found myself really feeling every emotion for Issy and her friends in this book. It was beautifuly written, and very senstive when talking about Granpa Joe who was alert at the start of the book but sadly got more ill as the book went on. An added bonus was the lovely recipes included in the book.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a sweet and exciting girly read, ideal for a holiday or a book to read on the bus or train, but be beware its very hard to put down!!!!!
