Hannah Robinson is just about to open the doors to her new shop Cupcakes on the Corner when out of the blue her boyfriend Patrick announces that he’s leaving her for another woman. Faced with starting a business on her own, Hannah begins to wonder if her life-long dream has just turned into a nightmare. So her best friend Adam sets his birthday as a deadline – seven months to make her shop a success, or walk away from it all. And as Hannah immerses herself in her new business, she soon discovers that she’s too busy to think about Patrick and his now pregnant girlfriend …or to notice an increasingly regular customer who has recently developed a sweet tooth for all things cupcake. But while Hannah is slowly piecing her life back together, family friend Alice’s is falling apart. Her husband Tom’s drinking is getting out of control and things are about to get a whole lot worse. As the seven-month milestone approaches, Hannah must decide her future. And while she’s figuring out what’s really important, it becomes clear to everyone that happiness in life, and in love, is all in the making.
Roisin Meaney may be a name that is new to those of us in North America, but she is not a stranger in Ireland where this book was previously published.
Meaney definitely knows how to bake up a tasty story from scratch. The fact that it was set in a small, idyllic town in Ireland was just the frosting on the cupcake!
Hannah’s life goes from one extreme to the next in just a few moments. Hannah wasn’t sure what to do or where to go. Thankfully, she has a wonderful friend in Adam. He knew just the right words to say to get her motivated to get back up again.
I really loved this charming little town and all its inhabitants. We get to learn so much about them.
I know that Roisin Meaney is being moved up to the top of my authors to watch list! I can’t wait for more books to finally be exported here!
