Book Review

Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan

Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan

Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan

A perfect Christmas read to get you into the mood in these cold dark nights, and difficult times. The book features all the characters that we met and loved at the Cupcake Cafe, but it doesn't matter if you haven't read that first, Colgan gives a detailed introduction to them all at the beginning, so you could still read this book as a stand alone one. It carries on the story of Issy, the prospect of a long distance romance, and the Christmas rush at the cafe, which is all beginning to take its toll! It's poignant, funny and joyful, and made me want to bake lots of lovely things! Tina

• The staff at Wrexham Library and Information Service would like to thank all of their customers for their support over the last 12 months, it is very much appreciated. We hope you all have a happy and healthy Christmas.
