With Christmas just around the corner, the residents of Skipley village are gearing up for the annual bake off, and tensions are high.

Winning means a lot to everyone involved – talented cake-shop owner Katie dreams of baking stardom, Rachel wants to prove she’s more than a stay-at-home mum, and John hopes his culinary skills will impress the woman he loves.

But when the judges discover that some cakes have been tampered with, the villagers’ loyalties are called into question – whose ambition would stretch to sabotage, and why?

The Christmas Bake-Off is an exclusive short story from Abby Clements, author of Meet Me Under the Mistletoe. This ebook edition also includes bonus recipes for cinnamon cookies and vanilla and almond biscuits.

I love Christmas and I love cake so when I saw this book on Amazon it was a no brainer.

It’s Christmas Eve and we’re about to have the annual village bake off. With all the local residents providing their entries even the those that are not so gifted in the kitchen.

With a Celebrity judge and a little bit of scandal this is a perfect festive story to read in between wrapping presents with a nice glass of Baileys.
