Publisher's Summary

Always the baker, never the bride....

Olivia James has always been happy running a tea shop and bakery in the Cotswold village of Wychwood-on-Lea and helping her friends find their happily-ever-afters, topped by the perfect wedding cake. But as Christmas approaches, Olivia is home alone and questioning her choices while eating too many of her own specialty confections.

When Simon Blacklock, a handsome, whimsical stranger, breezes into her shop and buys a cupcake and then returns the next day and the day after, Olivia begins to dream. Can romance blossom amid the sugar and flour? And after a lifetime of living on the sidelines, is she brave enough to star in her own story?

Simon may be hiding a painful secret, but Olivia harbors secrets of her own. If they can dare to risk their hearts, this Christmas might be the most magical yet!

A Lovely Book

This is the 2nd time I've listened to this book. I enjoyed it more. Such a lovely story.
The only downside was, it felt a bit rushed.

Short and not to usual standard of willoughby close books.

Short. No real character development. Like the previous 4 books much more. Hopefully number 5 is great again

Appalling accents

Story itself is ok, fairly predictable, but ok. The narration is awful. I’ve never met a British person who speaks like they apparently do in this book, certainly not someone who is supposed to have been brought up in Middlesbrough.
