Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan
Baking is in Issy Randall’s blood. Growing up above her grandfather’s bakery taught Issy that a delicious pastry could make any day better. So when she’s laid off from her desk job—by the man she thought was her boyfriend, no less—Issy knows now is the time to start her own little café.
Armed with her grandfather’s tried and true recipes, as well as her own new dishes, Issy’s new dream job should be a piece-of-cake, right? But managing a café, delivering products on time and trying to have a new love life aren’t exactly going as Issy planned. And when her ex comes back into the picture, perhaps with his own motives, Issy’s search for the perfect pastry and a groundbreaking idea to save her café are much more than she bargained for…
PJ here. I'm a baked goods aficionado. Love to bake them. Love to eat them. Love to read about them! From the time I was a little sprout, perched on a stool at my grandmother's side, I have been fascinated by the process of combining ordinary ingredients into extraordinary confections. Cakes, pies, cookies, breads, muffins, cobblers...you name it, I'll do my best to bake it. Much like Issy Randall in Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe, baking is in my blood.
Is baking in your blood? Like me, does a flour dusted kitchen and the smell of vanilla fill you with joy? Or do you prefer your goodies fully baked and waiting for you at the local bakery? Do you enjoy recipe romances as much as I do? What's your favorite baked indulgence; that one item that just won't allow you to say no?
One randomly chosen person leaving a comment will receive a copy of Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe. (U.S. and Canadian addresses only - no P.O. Boxes) Deadline for leaving comments will be Midnight (EST) August 10th.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Jenny Colgan was a fussy eater as a child and didn’t even begin to learn to cook until she was 21, when her then boyfriend tried to teach her a few basics purely out of exasperation. While she is now able to make a variety of good, wholesome food for her family, she still can’t make scones. A former columnist for The Guardian, Jenny contributes regularly to national BBC radio and is the bestselling author of more than eleven novels, including The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris (coming out in the US in early 2014). She is married with three children and lives in London and France. For more information, please visit http://www.jennycolgan.com/ and follow her on Twitter, @JennyColgan.
