Book Blurb
1960’s Somerset is no fun for cousins Polly and Annabelle Williams. Mourning their non-existent love lives, and the mundanity of village life, their only pleasure is baking – until a chance encounter has them magically transported to the bright lights of London… in 2019!
Promised a chance of love, first they must teach the people of the future about the simpler pleasures of life by becoming Cake Fairies. Over the course of a year they set off on a delectable tour of the UK, dropping off cakes in the most unexpected of places and replacing the lure of technology with much sweeter temptations.
But will their philanthropical endeavours lead them to everlasting love? Or will they discover you can’t have your cake and eat it?

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Isabella May’s latest novel: The Cake Fairies.

It’s 1969 and cousins Polly and Annabelle are best friends as well as partners in the bakery, living and working in a small village near Glastonbury.  The girls are approaching 30 and even though they’ve reached a level of success in their professional lives their love life is pretty non-existent.

It’s the annual fair in the village and the girls are attracted to a tent to which reveals a woman who appears to know an awful lot about them.  The lady in question offers them a challenge of sorts in return to helping them find love.  Polly and Annabelle find themselves time travelling 50 decades to the year 2019.  They are equipped with an instruction manual to help the people of today re-ignite their love of the simple pleasures in life before new technology brain washed us all.

The girls have the skills and creativity to bring forth the lure of the sweet delights of cake to tempt people to sit back and savour the moment and look around them.  Polly and Annabelle are granted a year to fulfil their mission and the Cake Fairies are born.  Along this journey that they are taking new friends, acquaintances and accomplishes are made.  But will 2019 bring them love and romance?

The Cake Fairies is such a fun, entertaining read viewing the advancements of the world through the eyes of our leading ladies.  When one embraces the change the other goes slightly off track.  Reading about their culinary sweet creations was enough to make your mouth water and their task was quite thought provoking and inspiring.

Fun, entertaining with a yummie romance!

Product Details

The rain in Spain doesn’t mainly fall on the plain…

Brits abroad Belinda, Julia, Laura and Georgina need more than the sweetness of churros with chocolate dipping sauce to save them from their unsavoury states of affairs.

Cue Carmen Maria Abril de la Fuente Ferrera, the town’s flamboyant flamenco teacher! But can she really be the answer to their prayers?

One thing’s for sure: the Costa del Sol will never be the same again.

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting Isabella May’s latest novel; Costa del Churros. This is my first introduction to the work of Isabella May and I love her writing style which is fun, entertaining and romantic.  I will certainly check out her back catalogue and future works.

I have to admit it did take me a little while to get into this story with four leading ladies but as Carmen Maria Abril de la Fuente Ferrera, Flamenco Dance teacher declared ‘you can’t rush into learning a new skill, there are steps along the way to let your heart be free to enjoy the final destination’ … and this is what I found in Costa del Churros.  There was a getting to know you stage which is the  perfect foundations for any book relationship.

The author treats us to little snapshops of our leading ladies lives and we learn of how they come together to join Carmen’s Flamenco Class.  Four ex-pat women from very different backgrounds, living in varying abodes and lifestyles in Spain.  Belinda, Julia, Laura and Georgina all feel they want more from their lives and whatever has drawn them to this class is the start of a journey of enlightenment for them all.

Carmen Maria Abril de la Fuente Ferrera, the Flamenco Dance teacher is a sort of enigma, her style of teaching is unorthodox but it’s precisely what lesson is needed at the right time in the ladies lives.  Carmen believes flamenco is like a psychology for the soul.

Things start to get a little crazy for the foursome when one of them is in need of help.  A madcap scheme is put in place and the four ladies pull together as a team.  The unlikeliest of friendships are those that are meant to be.  When forces pull you together at a time when your life is at odds with itself, a new influence could be the answer to your decisions?

This was a fun read and was injected with great scenes filled with humour, warmth and a little craziness.  Don’t be surprised if it gets your tastebuds salivating for churros and your toes tapping flamenco style :_
