Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe - Jenny Colgan (2012)

Issy Randall is back for Christmas at her quaint Cupcake Cafe but will things be the same when her boyfriend, Austin, is sent to New York for work? While Issy couldn't be happier that it's Christmas and time to start baking delicious holiday treats for her customers, the absence of Austin and the fact that he may not be coming home weigh heavy on her heart. Obviously, Issy can't leave the cafe that she's worked so hard to build. In addition, Pearl and Caroline, though competent workers, couldn't possibly hold things together while Issy was away. But sometimes you just have to have a little faith in your friends and the universe as a whole. Will Issy and Austin make things work or is their fairytale romance finally over? This is another great read for those who met and loved Issy the first time around. Even if you didn't read the original Cupcake Cafe novel, you can still enjoy Issy and friends in this one because it can easily stand alone. It's a heart-warming Christmas book that will have you rooting for Issy to figure out what she wants most! (AS)
