What I liked about this story is that it had a very original idea behind the main plot: speed dating with cake. I especially liked the first idea Maddie had, to match people according to their cake choices. But the idea was not as well executed as I first hoped. The story was quite slow, with not many things happening at first, except the fact that the teashop was in trouble. Then the idea of speed dating came up and again, there was a lot of talking but not a lot of action and when it finally happened, it was done and dusted quite quickly.
I was also a bit in two minds about the characters. Some of them I really liked, like Maddie, Mags or Caleb but then there were a few characters that got a lot of mentions in the story but nothing really happened with them, like the couple that worked next door, George and Rehana or Maddie's ex-best friend. I think there was no need to add them, as there were enough main characters with their own stories and problems.
This doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy reading this book. It actually made me smile a lot and it's quite an easy read to enjoy this summer. Especially if you enjoy cake and sweet treats as it's full of ideas and descriptions that had my mouth watering the whole time. I'm sure I'll try my hand at baking more than one of the treats mentioned.
As always she continues to deliver wonderfully written stories, relatable characters and plenty of humour.
Maddie Lamington had a dream; a dream which was WAY bigger than her, but she was still going to try to achieve it. The thing is, whilst baking cakes are either a recipe for disaster or a recipe for a start, Maddie’s long-term dream doesn’t even come with a recipe. Lets hope her timings aren’t out and she doesn’t get a ‘soggy bottom’.
Firstly, excellent surname choice for Maddie! A very clever use of words! If you don’t know, lamingtons are a cake and Maddie makes cakes…
Whilst I am an absolute sucker for a decent cake and a good cuppa, I am finding the whole teashop/café settings a bit too over used. Don’t get me wrong, they are fantastic settings where chic lit’s are concerned; I just feel a bit full up of the same theme. Of course I don’t HAVE to read them, BUT seeing as many of my well liked authors are setting the scene in a café and writing them well, it’s a bit devil you do, devil you don’t. Yes, it’s popular, but so is cake.
Despite my slight irk with the theme (not the authors work fyi), I did enjoy this book overall. Putting cake and dates together was such a genius idea that was, indeed, thoroughly entertaining. Well, as well as tummy rumbling. Mine, not theirs.Read more ›
Maddie, owner of Sweet Street Teashop in Manchester, is feeling a bit deflated at the lack of new customers her beloved shop is bringing in. She bakes scrummy cakes and puts all her heart and soul into the teashop, so she is disappointed and feels like she has wasted the inheritance she got from her late gran. As the book begins, Maddie is brainstorming with her close friend Nicky, and her work friends Victoria and Mags about ideas to bring in some custom. A while later, inspired by Maddie’s dad and regular customer Birdie, they settle on a speed-dating idea which consists of five men, five women, servings of cake at each table and fifteen minutes for each pair to get to know each other over one of Maddie’s sweet treats.
Instantly, I loved the friendships within Jennifer’s new book. Maddie, Nicky, Victoria and Mags were very individual characters, all memorable within their own rights. I really liked Maddie straight away. I felt like there were a few traits in her character I could relate to, not least her speaking before she thinks, sweet tooth and close bond with her dad, and this had me rooting for her straight away. Nicky was the character who made me laugh the most throughout the book.Read more ›
