Book Review- Meet me at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan

So another holiday read! Having read and enjoyed Jenny Colgan's other books i looked forward to reading this book and saved it for the sunbed! The main Character is Issy who loves baking cupcakes and other deliciousness (each chapter starts with a recipe, some of which sound fab). She is made redundant from her job, by her boyfriend, so eventually decides to open up the cupcake cafe. we follow her on this journey and meet Pearl and her little boy, Caroline, Austin and Issy's Gramps. 
I really enjoyed reading this and thought Jenny dealt with dementia really well, i loved the development of Pearl and would love to read more about her. Austin provides the love story line and is a great improvement on Graeme, who is a typical city boy.
The only disappointing part of the book was the ending, it was a little bored now so i'll finish it in a page. I hope that the follow up book makes up for this, but i do look forward to reading the next one.

i'll give this 4 stars out of 5.
