I spent a significant amount of my early 20s devouring books by Sophie Kinsella and Jane Green. I'm not sure why I veered away from the genre, but Meet Me at the Cupcake Café was an adorable and fun story that reminded me of why I love British Women's Fiction so much. Meet Me at the Cupcake Café centers around Issy Randal, a sweetheart of a woman who finds herself jobless and boyfriend-less, and she's lost. As the granddaughter of a baker, she grew up learning the art of baking, it's her art. In a moment of inspiration, Issy founds the Cupcake Café. Starting a business is no easy task, but with the help from her new friend Pearl, banker Austin, and her friends, the café is bound to be successful. But Issy learns that happiness with her job does not guarantee happiness in her personal life. At the end of the day, her friends have their own lives, and she is still lonely. All the while, Issy and Austin have become friends, of sorts, though Austin is hesitant to become involved with a client. And then there's the ex-boyfriend Graeme....Gorgeous, charismatic, and an utter self-involved jerk. But with Austin's hesitance and Graeme's sudden re-appearance in her life, Issy may just make the wrong choice. This was such a fun story, one that left me smiling and craving a cupcake. I love Women's Fiction, mainly because though there may be a romance of sorts, they're ultimately the heroine's personal journey. Meet Me at the Cupcake Café was also a story of friendship, and that's where it truly shined for me. I loved that Issy found such deep and strong friendships in the women around her. These were the women who helped keep her afloat when she was down. When the business struggled, and when she struggled with the men in her life, Issy always had her friends. A story about finding one's self and friendship, and a slew of delicious recipes, Meet Me at the Cupcake Café is a story that left me with a smile on my face, and a strong sweet tooth!

Enjoyed the story very much. Would like a sequel to find out what happens to the minor/supporting characters and Issy on her next life chapter (don't want to giveaway the ending :) ). The recipes are a little hard to follow because of the british references, but still will try them. Good read for a rainy day, beach holiday or really anytime. Definitely will reccomend.

A delightful read--just right for a snowy weekend! The characters are well developed and the story line moves smoothly. The recipes from Grampa are delightful. Sequel please?

I enjoyed this book so much more than I expected!  Its a little "fluffy", like you might expect by the name and pink cover and just the idea of cupcakes which are half cake and half frosting.  But there is a plot and nuanced story here with many lovable characters and storylines.  I agree with other  reviewers that it is also fun to read a book by a foreign author, with the story taking place in London.  It makes you feel like you had a little adventure in another corner of the world.  Some of her humor made me  laugh out loud too!  On top of a light-hearted read, you get free recipes!  This book will make you cheer for the underdogs and feel good all over.  You might even want to make a mess in your kitchen and bake some cupcakes for yourself and to give away as gifts!  Enjoy, with your favorite hot beverage!

If you don't want to think too much and you like chick lit, here is the embodiment of that sentiment.
