Book Description:
Ever dreamed of starting over?

Issy Randall can bake. No, more than that – Issy can create stunning, mouth-wateringly divine cakes. After a childhood spent in her beloved Grampa Joe's bakery she has undoubtedly inherited his talent. So when she's made redundant from her safe but dull City job, Issy decides to seize the moment and open up her own cafe. It should be a piece of cake, right?

Wrong. As her friends point out, she has trouble remembering where she left her house keys, let alone trying to run her own business. But Issy is determined. Armed with recipes posted to her from Grampa, and with her local bank manager fighting her corner, Issy attempts to prove everyone wrong. Following your dreams is never easy and this is no exception. Can Issy do it?

Idgie Says:
A fun book about a woman tiring of the everyday grind, going after her dream, and giving us all recipes to try at the same time - how much better could that be!

Not a hard hitting novel, but instead a light summer read that's perfect for the pool or beach.  Something you can pick up, read a bit of and then put it down for while you go for a swim.  After you go in for the can try baking something from the recipes!

A sweet novel with a happy ending.
