Christmas at Carly’s Cupcakes

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

It’s December on Castle Street; the fairy lights are twinkling, snow has settled and the festive season is in full swing.

For Carly, the owner of Carly’s Cupcakes, it’s the busiest time of year getting everyone’s Christmas treats ready on time. However with her clumsy sister, Bethany, as a co-worker, it’s proving a difficult task. They say you shouldn’t mix work with family. Maybe they have a point…

As Christmas approaches, Carly is also eagerly awaiting the return of her best friend to Whitborough Bay. Liam has no idea he’s been the object of her affection since their schooldays. After years of pining after him, can Carly pluck up the courage to finally tell him how she really feels by 25th December?

Could a little festive magic make all of Carly’s wishes come true this Christmas…?

A heartwarming, short festive story of friendship and family from bestseller Jessica Redland. You can find out what happens to Carly next through exploring her best friend Tara’s story in Starry Skies Over The Chocolate Pot Café.

This is a new and updated version of Christmas at Carly’s Cupcakes which has been previously published.

My Thoughts

A short but sweet festive tale. It is always a treat visiting the folks on Castle Street. Christmas and cupcakes. Sisters and second chances. Weddings and kisses. Carly is busy baking her way to Christmas and helping with her sister Bethany‘s wedding. Bethany is also meant to be helping out Carly, but her insecurities and clumsy ways can be a bit of a hindrance. And if that’s not enough Carly‘s oldest friend Liam is coming back from the army. Carly has always had a bit of a crush on Liam, but has always been afraid to admit it. Will wedding bells ring? Will there be kisses under the mistletoe? You will need to read this book to find out.

This book left me with a smile on my face and craving a cupcake. Carly was a great character I found her so relatable and was so hoping things would work out between Liam and her. Bethany was seriously frustrating. There were moments in this book I wanted to reach through the pages and smack some sense into the girl. As always I loved the sense of community and camaraderie between the shop owners on Castle Street. So grab the hot chocolate, turn on the tree lights, and have yourself a merry little Christmas read.
