Summary

Includes an exclusive letter to the listener read by Carole Matthews herself!

Indulge in this lovely, cake-filled novel of romance and friendship. Christmas Cakes and Mistletoe Nights is top three Sunday Times best-selling Carole Matthews at her heart-warming best!

Fay and Danny are madly in love, and it's all Fay's ever dreamed of. But she left everything - including the delightful cake shop she used to run - to be with Danny on his cosy canal boat, The Dreamcatcher. And as she soon finds out, making delicious cakes on the water isn't always smooth sailing!

Then Fay gets a call from her friends, a call that sends her back to her friends and the Cake Shop in the Garden. It will be hard being away from Danny, but their relationship is strong enough to survive...isn't it?

Fay soon falls happily back in love with her passion for baking - especially now she's on dry land again! - and starts to wonder if she ever should have left. With Christmas around the corner, Fay is determined that her friends will have a very merry time, but does that mean even more time away from Danny? Can Fay really get everything she ever wanted in Christmas Cakes and Mistletoe Nights?

Wrong narrator

Poor Narrator story predictable

dismal narration

Dreadful twee narration spoiled this book. The main character was already cringe worthy, but with such sickly narration , made her almost unbearable !
These books are a soft, escapism. And I usually enjoy them for what they are, sadly not in this case.

Disappointing

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Cant imagine who would enjoy this!

What will your next listen be?

Something with an actual storyline.

How could the performance have been better?

Change the narrator. She was too smug and patronising.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your time!

It’s my favourite 😊

What a lovely, gentle story for Christmas.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and found myself anticipating ‘it’s my favourite’ and saying it out loud, which made me smile!
Makes me want to live on the canals :)
