Warm And Welcoming
A Gingerbread Café Christmas by Rebecca Raisin is a delightful contemporary festive offering of three stories.
Christmas At The Gingerbread Café by Rebecca Raisin is the first book in the Gingerbread Café series and is absolutely delightful. It is a gentle novella about friendship and love during the festive season. We see that we achieve more when we work in partnership rather than viewing others as competition or rivals. All the characters are warm and welcoming. This is Christmas wrapped up in a tale.
Chocolate Dreams At The Gingerbread Café by Rebecca Raisin is the second book in the Gingerbread Café series and moves forward in time towards Easter as we catch up with Lil and CeeCee making their chocolate Easter eggs. The reader is once more enveloped in an atmosphere of love and friendship. We learn that the richest people are those with love in their hearts, surrounded by family and friends. The love of money is the root of all evil as we witness how grabbing at money is ugly. We see kind and generous hearts who go the extra mile for those they love.
Christmas Wedding At The Gingerbread Café by Rebecca Raisin is the final book in the Gingerbread Café trilogy which has been absolutely delightful. Once more the reader receives a warm welcome as the book is full of love and a generosity of spirit. People come together to celebrate new life, a wedding and a death – for all the stages of life, there is love and support as a community pulls together. There are occasionally those who are out to cause mischief as bumps in the road need smoothing out.
I have adored this Gingerbread Café series. It has been a pure delight and just perfect for the Christmas season.
