Christmas Comes Early: Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan

The book I've chosen to feature this week is Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe by bestselling author Jenny Colgan which if you're a fan like me you'll recognise is a sequel to Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe which I loved reading last year. 

Issy Randall, proud owner of The Cupcake Cafe, is in love and couldn't be happier. Her new business is thriving and she is surrounded by close friends, even if her cupcake colleagues Pearl and Caroline don't seem quite as upbeat about the upcoming season of snow and merriment. But when her boyfriend Austin is scouted for a possible move to New York, Issy is forced to face up to the prospect of a long-distance romance. And when the Christmas rush at the cafe - with its increased demand for her delectable creations - begins to take its toll, Issy has to decide what she holds most dear.

This December, Issy will have to rely on all her reserves of courage, good nature and cinnamon, to make sure everyone has a merry Christmas, one way or another ...

Jenny has recorded a short video below explaining why she decided to write a follow-up to Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe.    

Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe is due out on 25th October but if you cannot wait until then to start reading then you'll have to satisfy yourselves with the exclusive extract of the first chapter which Jenny has made available on her website here.

I've been lucky enough to have been sent a proof copy of this book to review but I'm having to resist the temptation to read it early as I've got other books to read first.
