Review of A Little Sugar, A Lot of Love by Lynn B Halton - Four *


Life isn’t all love and cupcakes … 
Katie has had her fair share of bad luck, but when she finally realises her dream of opening a bakery it seems things can only get better. 
But the reality of running a business hits Katie hard and whilst her partner, Steve, tries to help she can’t help but feel that the situation is driving them further apart. Could Katie be set to lose her relationship and her dream job? 

Then, one winter’s day, a man walks into her shop – and, in the space of that moment, the course of Katie’s life is changed. 
But nobody finds happiness in the blink of an eye. Sometimes it takes two Christmases, three birthdays and a whole lot of cake to get there … 

Previously released as Sweet Occasions by the author. Revised and edited by Choc Lit December 2015 


This was a sweet romance, in more senses than one! Katie runs a cake shop and meets Adam when he calls in for a cake for his Grandma. The book then follows their lives as they occasionally meet and then part once more.

It is very cleverly written - the chapters are written from Katie, Adam, Grace and even Steve's point of view - so we get very in-depth views of their thoughts and emotions.

I love Grace (Grandma) - she was a brilliant character and her love of her family was wonderful.

It was a little predictable, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I like endings like this! And the cakes were characters in themselves!

I enjoyed Lynn's book and look forward to reading more. 

I was given an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
