Review: Cupcakes and Confetti by Jane Linfoot

Cupcakes and Confetti: A feel good summer romance perfect for wedding season! (The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea, Book 1)The perfect romance to take on your summer hols! For fans of Milly Johnson, Jenny Oliver and Lucy Diamond.
Brides by the Sea, the cutest little wedding shop in all of Cornwall, has it all, including cake baker Poppy who lives upstairs. But wedding planning is not the piece of cake Poppy thought it would be, and when her best friend Cate’s wedding planner walks out, Poppy has to tie up the loose ends so her bestie can tie the knot.
Double-booked venues, ‘rustic’ locations and gorgeous but grumpy farmer Rafe have this wedding pro feeling like she could be Cate’s ‘something blue.’
Will the wedding, the shop and the cake all come crashing down on her? Or will Poppy pull it off to give Cate – and herself – the happy ever afters they deserve?

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

Linfoot has proven time after time that she can draw the reader in right from the very beginning and make you feel like you are sitting down for a conversation with your closest friends and this book is no exception, right from the very first page I KNEW I was going to love this book.

One of my favourite things about this book is the fact that it unfolds over several months. Months in which our main characters can get to know each other. Months in which feelings can develop. Don't get me wrong I love an instant attraction and the lust fuelled clinches that tend to accompany them as much as the next person but sometimes there's nothing more satisfying than that slow burning attraction that builds over time, the kind that sneaks up on you when you least expect it..

There's a whole host of characters in this book, from Poppy and her friends to the brides and grooms who get married at Daisy Hill Farm, and just like in every other book she has written Linfoot brings every single one of them to life.

My only complaint is that this is the first book in Linfoot's The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea series and I don't have the second in the series Sequins and Snowflakes available to read immediately.
