Book Description:

Christmas is the season the Gingerbread Café was made for…but owner Lily couldn’t be feeling less merry if she tried. She’s spent another year dreaming of being whisked away on a sleigh-ride for two, but she’s facing festive season alone – again. And, just to give her another reason to feel anything other than candy-cane perky, a new shop across the road has opened… Not only is it selling baked goods, but the owner, with his seriously charming smile, has every girl in town swooning.

But Lily isn’t about to let her business crumble — the Gingerbread Café is the heart of the community, and she’s going to fight for it! This could be the Christmas that maybe, just maybe, all her dreams – even the someone-to-decorate-the-Christmas-tree-with ones – really do come true!

Christmas at the Gingerbread Café by Rebecca Raisin is a Carina UK publication released in 2013. I received a copy of this book from the publisher and Netgalley in conjunction with Bewitching Tours.

It's Christmas at the Gingerbread Café and usually a busy time for Lil and her partner CeeCee. However this year it looks like the café is going to have a little competition.

Damon has returned home from New Orleans. He appears to be horning in on Lil's business and Lil has decided she will have done of it. She approaches him and lets him know under no uncertain terms how she feels about him.
But CeeCee sees a possible business venture and maybe even a little romance in the situation. When Lil isn't moping over her ex-husband or fuming at Damon, CeeCee is trying to convince her to forgive Damon and show a little Christmas spirit.

Lil and Damon are both hurt and lonely people whose paths cross in the most unlikely way. Will Lil be able to get over her broken heart and will Damon be able to convince her to give him a chance?

This is a really great Christmas novella! Lil is a likable person and someone we can relate to. Damon is also recovering from some things and is often sad and we just want to give him a big old hug! He is a little mysterious though.
CeeCee however, nearly steals the show. A great friend with a lot of love for her friend, Lil.

If you love Christmas, romance and HEA then you will love this sweet novella.
This one gets an A.!
