Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Fun, festive and tasty – The Great Christmas Cook Off by Helen Buckley -#Mystery and #Romance

My Review:

This is a story filled with great bakes and a mystery
With celebrity bakers trying the best to be.
However, something goes wrong time after time,
Is it accidental or is it a crime?

There's rivalry, challenges and so much more
As different takes on bakes they explore.
The developing relationships add to the mix
But is there a saboteur the result trying to fix?

Finding out more about each other, 
Family drama and what happened to a brother,
As well as delicious recipes and possible romance
This is a great book on which to take a chance!

With fun characters, intrigue and baking, too,
A lovely read with inspirational bakes to do,
Add in the romance and mystery as well
I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, I hope you can tell!

For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
It's a fab festive romance and this is my honest review.

Synopsis:

It’s the festive showdown to end all festive showdowns …
“Queen of Chocolate” Beatrice Wodehouse, known for her decadent desserts, is ready to go head to head with her social media nemesis, clean lean baking machine Charlie Simmonds, in the Great Christmas Cook Off TV show.
Beatrice is fed up of Charlie’s sanctimonious attitude and is ready to show him that food is there to be enjoyed. Surely she’ll blow his keto, low sugar, low-carb mince pies out of the water with her chocolatey creations?
Except filming for the Cook Off turns out to be anything but sugar, spice and all things nice when the contestants realise there’s a festive saboteur in their midst – leading to melted ice cream, trifle mishaps and private stories leaked to the press.
As the countdown to the final commences, suspicions run high and sparks are bound to fly – and not just from the flaming Christmas puddings!
Part of the Spotlight series but it can be read as a standalone story.
