The Cosy Little Cupcake Van by Annette Hannah #BlogTour #BookReview

Camilla’s delicious cakes are the talk of her little village. If you need a perfectly iced mouthful of joy, Camilla ‘Cupcake’ is your woman. But after losing her mother, she finds her home and her business in jeopardy. She needs a little helping hand…

Thankfully her friends are always there for her, and when she is given an old ice cream van, Camilla’s dream of a cupcake delivery service is born. Now she can bring happiness – and buttercream frosting – to the whole town.

But when her ex Blake appears back on her doorstep, Camilla must decide if she can trust him again or if her heart might belong to someone else…

Bursting with romance and sprinkled with humour, this is a deliciously feel-good story about one woman putting her life back together, one cupcake at a time. Perfect for fans of Cathy Bramley, Ali McNamara and Rebecca Raisin!

My Review

This book makes you hungry!

A charming story that centres around a woman who has lost her business, mother and partner; and then the wonderful way she learns to accept herself and focus on all the wonderful opportunities that come her way.

I loved Camilla as a character and was willing her on as she slowly pulled her life back together after a terribly rough start. You are reacquainted with characters from Weddings Bells at the Signal Box Café and of course that gorgeous little village! You don’t have to have read Wedding Bells, as this is a standalone novel in it’s own right, but it is lovely to see the character development. 

The story moves effortlessly through Camilla’s ups, downs and how she reclaims her confidence. The romance is too cute with swoon-worthy love interests! I was definitely #TeamGed 😄

One aspect of this book I really liked was how it tackled the theme of homelessness. Something which so many people have suffered and a desperate situation that some people, through no fault of their own, can end up getting trapped in. The characters were empathetic, helpful and compassionate. As someone who has lost a house, this was extremely uplifting. 

Essentially, this is the warm hug that we all need right now! A gorgeous, uplifting story that leaves you feeling like you can do whatever you want to! 💪
