How do you learn to love again? In one tragic moment, Holly Jefferson s life as she knows it changes for ever. Now to the external world, at least she’s finally getting back on her feet, running her business, Cake. Then she meets Ciaran Argyll.

His rich and charmed life feels a million miles from her own. However, there’s more to Ciaran than the superficial world that surrounds him, and he too is wrestling with his own ghosts. Will Holly find the missing ingredient that allows her to live again and embrace an unknown and unexpected tomorrow?

My Thoughts 
This was an okay read for me. Kind of predictable but a cute read nevertheless. It’s all about finding love when and where you least expect it. Holly wasn’t looking for love while she was trying to deal with the aftermath of losing her husband. Then enters Ciaran who is everything she never expected to be attracted to. Meanwhile Ciaran is dashing but underneath he has issues of his own but by the looks of him no one would ever imagine he did. i like how these two are quite different yet they are very similar in some aspects. i love how they balance each other out. This is great if you want a purely fun and cute read. It’s not heavy in content but sometimes that’s a good thing. This is definitely a good for those who love and enjoy a good chick lit book.
