I love Jenny Colgan books, and Meet Me at the Cupcake Café is even better than the usual fare because it combines two of my favorite things: sweet and funny chick lit with yummy food. When protagonist Issy Randall is made redundant (American translation: laid off), she decides to follow her dream of opening a bakery – and of course chaos immediately ensues. It’s great fun – I devoured the 450+ pages in less than two days, though I haven’t tried any of the included cupcake recipes yet. Bon appétit !
