My Review:

I’ve loved every book I’ve read by this author – and this is no exception. She writes with a great sense of humour so, even though her hero and heroine may well have traumatic events, the story is still well seasoned with tasty, witty events and encounters. There’s also the delicious theme of Italian deserts and designer cupcakes in this novel, making it a really mouthwatering read.

The delectable recipe for this story includes an Italian trattoria, a mystery restaurant reviewer, hashtag fame, an old competitor (who is a hot Italian hunk) and an old ice cream van that plays Greensleeves when you press the silver button! It also includes good friends, lots of advice, a lovely sister (and her twin sons) and a brilliant plot. The characters are well developed and there are certainly some who I hope will feature in their own novel in future. The story starts with everything going wrong for Lucie and is a rocky road to her achieving her HEA in this brill second chance romance. It is a sweet and scrumptious fun read, an incomparable recipe for a delightful summer romantic comedy.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


The delightfully heartwarming romantic comedy from Daisy James!

When life gives you lemons, make lemon-drizzle cupcakes…

Lucie thought that proposing to her boyfriend in Tiffany’s would be the best day of her life. Until he said no. In just a few seconds, her whole world is turned upside-down! And when she accidentally switches cocoa powder for chilli powder at work, she finds herself out of a job, too…

Baking has always made life better in the past, but can Lucie really bake her way to happiness? Starting her own company, selling cupcakes out of an old ice cream van might just be the second chance that Lucie needs!

Of course, she never expected to find love along the way…

This book is available from a variety of sources including
