Rose is about to get a taste of the sweet life Rosie Hopkins's life is...comfortable. She has a steady nursing job, a nice apartment, and Gerard, her loyal (if a bit boring) boyfriend. And even though she might like to pursue a more rewarding career, and Gerard doesn't seem to have any plans to propose, Rosie's not complaining. Things could be worse. Right? Life gets a bit more interesting when Rosie's mother sends her out to the country to care for her ailing great aunt Lilian, who owns an old-fashioned sweetshop. But as Rosie gets Lilian back on her feet, breathes a new life into the candy shop, and gets to know the mysterious and solitary Stephen--whose family seems to own the entire town--she starts to think that settling for what's comfortable might not be so great after all. Praise for Meet Me at the Cupcake Café: "Colgan folds in a colorful cast of characters and whips up an easy, sweet read." -USA Today "A funny novel about friendship, food, and love." -Kirkus "A satisfying read." -Publishers Weekly

Jenny Colgan is my go to author when I need something fun to read. The majority of the story takes place in current day England. Rosie leaves London to help her Grandmother Lilian down in Lipton England. Rosie works hard to restore her aunts closed up Sweetshop. She makes friends and has some "fun" adventures along the way. There are flashbacks to WWII and those parts of the story are sad. Overall a delightful read.

A nice story with added information of our favourite sweets and a few recipes as well! :-) A good read - recommended!

Boring is good, right? Steady job, steady beau, nice apartment. Rosie thought so, until she leaves it all to go nurse her great-aunt Lilian.

You have to pay attention to light, hard-to-read years stuck at the beginning of some sections of the story because some of the story is set during WW2 and the rest is set in 2012. I did quite like the stories once I figured out what year I was in. Rosie and her great aunt Lillian are more alike than they would admit. It was lovely watching/reading about Rosie's metamorphosis from pale, rushed city woman to blooming, ever-independent country town woman. Great story!
