Snowflakes, Iced Cakes and Second Chances by Sue Watson (Book Beginnings & Friday 56)

This is the third book set in Appledore and it's every bit as heartbreaking and hopeful and lovely as the first two. It may be even more so since this one is set around Christmas which, in itself, tends to add a little extra something to your typical "feel-good" (when you aren't snotting all over your shirtsleeves) romance.
My only real problem with the book is the male lead. He rubbed me the wrong way and would never make it onto my list of book boyfriends ... but that could be because I've known too many like him on his worst days. Still, the book overall was so lovely that the most I could deduct because of Gianni is half of a star. Then, though, we add in how beautifully Chloe deals with him (and all of the snotty shirtsleeve moments), and that half of a star comes shooting right back on with a vengeance. 
Another 5 star book for me from Sue Watson. Now, can we PLEASE get Marco his own full story?
As always, Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice & Book Beginnings is at Rose City Reader.
This week my "56" comes from the 56% ebook mark.

  1. Need to add this to my reading list. Sounds fun and I love the cover and title.

  2. I am glad you are enjoying this series. It isn't one I am too familiar with, but it sounds like a good one. I am sorry about Gianni. I've come across that too sometimes, where the male romantic lead just isn't my type. I guess it's good I'm not his love interest. LOL I hope you have a great weekend.

  3. This sounds like a good one. Thanks for mentioning it.

  4. Sounds so lovely, based on the descriptive writing. Happy weekend!

  5. A romantic male lead with an explosive temper, eh? Good luck with that one! Men with major temper issues do NOT make good husbands and fathers. No wonder you had problems bonding with him:( Glad you enjoyed the lovely writing, though...

  6. Just a bit too soon for the Christmas-y reads for me! :)
