Christmas at the Gingerbread Cafe by Rebecca Raisin

What They Say:

The icing on her Christmas cake!

Christmas is the season the Gingerbread Café was made for…but owner Lily couldn’t be feeling less merry if she tried. She’s spent another year dreaming of being whisked away on a sleigh-ride for two, but she’s facing festive season alone – again. And, just to give her another reason to feel anything other than candy-cane perky, a new shop across the road has opened… Not only is it selling baked goods, but the owner, with his seriously charming smile, has every girl in town swooning.
But Lily isn’t about to let her business crumble — the Gingerbread Café is the heart of the community, and she’s going to fight for it! This could be the Christmas that maybe, just maybe, all her dreams – even the someone-to-decorate-the-Christmas-tree-with ones – really do come true!
What I Say:
This is set in a small town in America, where Lily runs a small town cafe that also sells home made goods, she is preparing for her buisiest time of year, while nursing a broken heart. I instantly like Lily she is hard working and sassy.  She is determind to stand up for herself.
Damon opens a shop across the road from Lily and instantly infuriates her by selling the same products she does. To be honest I would be really annoyed as well.  This kicks off a mini war between the two, while the sparks begin to fly as their attraction takes over, neither of them seem willing to give in until Lily's friend suggest they work together, this is where the book gets really interesting. 
This is a lovely feel good Christmas  about overcoming your past and moving on with the future.   I liked the fact they both had a past to deal with, even if there pasts was slightly different.
4 out of 5 stars.
