Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop: Coffee Cupcakes by Jane Linfoot

Yes, there are two very handsome men at the centre of it – albeit one is broody, uncommunicative and dangerously attractive, while the other is handsome, upbeat and happy to party. But Maddie Brooks is about to turn 50, recently divorced and her love-rat of a husband slept with her best, childhood friend. Running away to a dilapidated cottage in the country seemed like a good idea at the time … but life is never that simple, is it?…
