Advent Reads Day 12: The Christmas Bake-Off by Abby Clements

Synopsis: "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."

My Review: This was a great little read to get you in the holiday spirit. It was short and fun, and a little different from what I was expecting. It was a nice combination of the holidays, cooking, small town atmosphere, a little romance and a little mystery. There was a lot packed into this short little book. Oh and don't forget the recipes at the back of the book too! I love when books talk about delicious food and then give you the recipe to make it!
My Rating: There was a lot packed into this little book, I really wish it had been a little longer so I could really savor it. I give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.


  1. I hate when books talk about tons of yummy food. It makes me so hungry. Nice that this one gives you recipes and a fun story.

    1. I have a love hate relationship with books containing food and beverage descriptions! I love finding new things to try but then I eat too much.
