Member since 2010 I suspended my account for a couple of months and audible incorrectly states I joined June 2015 crazy with 343 titles
Purchased two of Jenny Colgans books as I could not find my usual authors found them both so absolutely boring could not read it at all.
"I enjoy Jenny's books, but..."
..recipes at start of chapters, drove me mad! Audio ensures compulsory listening, skipping, misses story!!
"Great follow up"
so very glad I didn't believe some of the reviews. it was lovely to find out what happened with all of the people from the first book. hopefully a 3rd book will follow as even though the storyline ended well it has an excellent opportunity for taking the caracters further.
I really loved listening to both cupcakes books. Was quite Disappointed when this one finished. I really do hope that there will be a third book in the series to find out what everyone is up to. Thank you Jenny for the great story line and characters , and Thank you Penelope Rawlins for the great narration of all the characters. I really loved them all. xx
"a good story but..."
the recipe at the begriming of each chapter spoiled the flow of the story which is a shame as all the characters were well written and the situations they found themselves in.
this is the follow on book to meet me at the cupcake café where the recipes were a novel idea which added to the story to inspire you to try to make them yourself.
"Second in the series"
This book is just as good as the first about the cupcake cafe.
When you start to read you get drawn back into the lives of the characters,
Some you would like to shake or even slap and others you want to hug and protect. Every emotion you can think of rides throughout this book.
Brilliant five stars.
"A lovely story"
Really enjoyed listening to this. A lovely follow up to the first story. Made me want to dust off my baking stuff and get back in the kitchen.
This was an easy to listen too, feel good novel, excellently narrated. One of my favourite authors. Get chilled out.
"More recipes and a story that pleases"
A pleasant story and the continuing saga of the Cupcake Cafe. This is a well written and highly entertaining book. The Cupcake Cafe books contain recipes which anyone can try and the characters are charismatic and enchanting. Well done Jenny Colgan..please write some more!
Brilliant escapism. The way Jenny writes totally absorbs you into the world of her characters. If you loved the cupcake cafe you will enjoy this just as much.
"narration spoiled it"
I really enjoyed the story itself- I wish now that I had read it rather than listened to it. When the narrator spoke in her own voice as the main character it was great, but her attempts at the voices of the other characters was cringe-worthy!
