Book Description...


"Chocolate…the most irresistible temptation?

The Gingerbread Café is all a buzz! This Easter, Lily and the rest of the town of Ashford, Connecticut are planning a truly decadent Chocolate Festival. Cooking up a storm, CeeCee and Lily are not just baking a batch of their sinfully delicious chocolate-dipped gingerbread men, but an excess of chocolate truffles, squidgy, cinnamony hot cross buns and melt in your mouth chocolate eggs. The Gingerbread Café staff have definitely enjoyed the tasting process!

Add in Damon’s cute-as-a-button seven year old daughter, Charlie, up for a visit and Lily’s perfect Easter may just be around the corner. Until her ex-husband Joel turns up demanding twenty thousand dollars… Suddenly the future of the Gingerbread Café is not so clear…and Lily finds herself eating far more of The Gingerbread Café’s treats than her skinny jeans allow…

Can Lily concoct a brilliant plan to save her beloved café, convince Damon she has no feelings for Joel and still throw a Chocolate Festival the town will be talking about for years? There’s only one way to find out...

Welcome back to the warmth, cupcakes and hot chocolate of The Gingerbread Café – your home away from home

I found this sequel  a very short fast paced  sweet romantic read that was simply delicious from start to finish. Truly this author knows how to deliver so well a story with just the perfect drama that comes together so well in this amazing good story in this small town of Ashford, Connecticut.  I love how you are made to feel as  if I were there  in the story eating those delicious  sweets and I also love this authors vivid descriptions of it all.


 As you read though this novel  one can easily see that Lily has finally found love but there  will be some trials for her to go through from her ex.  How will she handle this situation?  I loved how Damon and her friend Cee Cee who are their for Lily  if she needed anything and wow what a friend Cee Cee was!  This was absolutely beautifully done.  Now, to get it all you must pick up this wonderful read and see for yourself how this author brings it all out to the reader.  I loved the characters who were simply off the chart...well developed, well portrayed, resilient, colorful, strong,  real, and believable giving us a read that made it seem like they came alive on the pages.  As you can tell I simply love this novel and yes I would definitely recommend "Chocolate Dreams at the Gingerbread Cafe."
