Heart-warming and hilarious, a story that will make you laugh, cry and bring a smile to your face. Get ready for another deliciously amazing Christmas treat from Sue Watson….
As the Prosecco chills and Bing Crosby croons, Jen Barker just knows that her long-term boyfriend is about to propose. But instead of a diamond ring nestled in her champagne flute, Jen finds cold flat rejection. Her once perfect life and dreams of a husband and family seem even further from reach.
A working holiday to the Swiss Alps with her younger sister Jody might not be the Christmas Jen had it mind, but it offers her the chance to recharge her batteries and recover from heartbreak.
When Jen meets handsome ski instructor Jon Zutter her hopes for a happy-ever-after seem within her grasp again. Jon is kind and gorgeous and as they bond over Sachetorte at the picturesque Cake Café, Jen thinks he might just be her perfect man. But a relationship with him comes with a catch – and there are some things even cake can’t fix.
As the snow falls and Christmas approaches, could this be the place that restores Jen Barker’s faith in love?

I have to say that I giggled a lot at the chapter titles. I loved that they were titled since it gave us a pick of what was to happen in the chapter. Jen is a change of pass character I am use to a firecracker like Jody and her friends. Tim is an ass but you always need that type of relationship to enjoy a good one. You will see some things coming in this story. Sue Watson does a fantastic job showing the true side of what some feel like in blended families. Plus with how Jen’s mother painted a bad picture of her father and not being friends with her sister until later in life. I love how everything was tied together in the end. Such a bittersweet Christmas story and only $0.99 right now in ebook forum.
