This GBBO inspired festive romance is sweetness all round

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, a confession. I’m one of the few people who isn’t a mad fan of either The Great British Bake Off, or its current Channel 4 incarnation.

I’ve seen the odd episode and I watched it when a friend of a friend took part in season six, but It’s never been a must watch.

However, that didn’t stop me from loving everything about this book, from its premise based on GBBO through to the location and the romance itself.

I loved how baking brought two broken and damaged hearts together and strengthened each man individually as well as a pair.

Every festive romance has to have a hiccup or two, but they never felt inserted just to create a plot point.

And, as someone who deals with social media marketing in the day job, all the talk of ROI, demographics and product placement made me chuckle.

Definitely one of favourite festive feel good romances from RJ
