For Tamsin Angel, Christmas is always the biggest and best… chic parties and a little showbiz sparkle are a must. This year though, things aren’t going quite as planned…

With bailiffs suddenly at the door and her husband nowhere to be found, it looks like Christmas just got downsized. Moving into her sister’s one-bedroom flat, she wonders whether things will ever be the same again.

After losing her husband on Christmas Eve, Sam Angel has rebuilt her life around her son Jacob and her new business – The White Angel Bakery. She’s also found herself a very handsome, loving boyfriend, but is struggling to let go of the past.

Thrown together with a sprinkle of Christmas magic, Sam and Tamsin might just learn a little more about each other – and themselves. But when disaster strikes at the bakery, will they be able to save the day in time for Christmas?

Thank you yo Bookouture for accepting my request to review this book via Netgalley. I had previously read a short story by Sue Watson which I really enjoyed so I was excited to read this one.

The story follows 2 sisters Tasmin and Sam Angel. These sisters have very different lives. Tasmin lives a life of luxury while Sam puts any money she makes back into her little bakery just keeping enough for her and her son to live. But when Tasmin’s life falls apart Sam is the one to help pick up the pieces.

I don’t have a sister  but the relationship between these two made me want one. The bond that these two had was so strong and special. They go through so much and as different as they are they need each other.

This book will leave you full of Christmas spirit. I have a few of Sue’s Christmas books on my TBR pile and I can’t wait to get to them.

About Sue Watson

Sue Watson was a TV Producer with the BBC who combined motherhood and family life with a busy career. However, one day it dawned on Sue that Cosmo magazine may have been telling porkies about 'having it all,' and her life had become a slightly crazed juggling act.

So after much soul searching (and comfort eating) Sue abandoned her TV career, bought a pink laptop and wrote a novel. 'Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes,' tells the story of Stella Weston, whose life is a constant struggle with a nasty boss at work, the weighing scales and being a mum, wife and daughter.

Originally from Manchester, Sue now lives with her husband and teenage daughter in Worcestershire. When she's not toiling over her latest novel, Sue bakes (and eats) cake and enjoys very large tubs of Caramel Chew Chew ice cream all to herself while watching 'The Biggest Loser USA.'

Sue's second book, 'Younger, Thinner, Blonder' was released in October (2013) and her third book 'Love, Lies and Lemon Cake' is released on June 27th 2014.

Sue Watson’s Christmas Bake Off Christmas is my favourite time of year. I love the smell of Christmas trees, the glistening baubles, the jingle-bell music, frost on the windows and fairylights everywhere. But my favourite part of Christmas is the food and the baking. I adore the warm smell of cinnamon emanating from the warm oven, the rich Christmas cake, the flaming pudding smothered in alcoholic cream and rum sauce and all the tasty tit-bits in between. I see Christmas as an opportunity to eat what I like because it’s a well-known fact that calories don’t count during Christmas week.  […]

Cake is often a major part of life’s celebrations, both big and small. From birthdays to wedding days, cake, in all its delectable concoctions, marks joyous occasions with a sweetness that can’t be beat. But even better is the love that is shared when two people connect over a sweet confection. Maybe it’s a cute new guy wreaking havoc on a broken heart, or a beautiful woman testing the limits of love, or an old beau stirring up long lost desires. Whatever the circumstances, cake can always be relied upon to save the day when it comes to affairs of […]
