From sleigh bells to wedding bells . . .
After a rocky start, Ellie Hall baked her way into everyone’s hearts at Claverham Castle – even the miserly Lord Henry was won over – and the run-down tea shop regained its old sparkle.
Now Ellie has upgraded cupcakes for fairy tale masterpieces as the proud caterer for an ever-growing list of weddings at the castle. The tea shop team love baking to the tune of happy ever afters, but can they pull together when a certain Bridezilla pushes them all to boiling point?
Christmas is just around the corner, and a last minute booking threatens to snow the team under. Ellie and her hunky hubby Joe have their own Christmas dreams to chase, but they’re determined to pull through and give this special couple the winter wonderland wedding they deserve.
Will Christmas at the Cosy Tea shop be a showstopper to remember?
This is a fantastic sequel to The Cosy Tea Shop in the Castle…the characters are true to form and massively likeable..the Castle and the surroundings are so well described I can feel myself there…in fact I should visit this area one day, I have never ventured towards that side of the country but it sounds delightful.
The story combines humour, unicorns, relationships, heartbreak, a will to succeed, cakes, Christmas and a lovely ending. What’s not to enjoy? There just is something about a proper tea shop….fast food places just don’t do it for me…tea shops? Oh yes indeed….
Beautifully written by Caroline, keeping me entangled within the story on every page….a poignant message threading it’s way all the way to the end…never take for granted all the happy things and loving people we have in our lives…. Every now and then just take a step back and see what you really really have….it’s just human nature to miss it all sometimes..
I think there is still room for some more tales from the Castle!!
We will leave Ellie and Joe for now…..I hope we can watch this space for some more of them….

Tomorrow it’s December, day one of our advent calendars….and after my birthday on Saturday the Christmas feeling will commence….
This is a great read for the lead up to Christmas and has my heartfelt recommendation…
