Moving to Italy to set up a baking club is a dream come true…

…until Libby catches her husband cheating just weeks beforeThe Sunshine and Biscotti Club opens its doors.

With the first wave of guests set to arrive any day, Libby has no choice but to tie on her apron and get set to bake. But with a dash of sunshine and a sprinkling of old friends, Libby’s kitchen nightmare might just become the best thing that’s ever happened to her.

After all, you can’t bake biscotti without breaking a few eggs…

For guaranteed sunshine all holiday long, pack your bags and escape to The Sunshine and Biscotti Club – the irresistible new book from Jenny Oliver!

I won this book a few week's ago from the lovely Becca over at Becca's Books and as soon as I read the blurb I knew it would be the perfect read for the holiday I had coming up. 

The book opens with a group of friends, three male and three female who are at different points in their lives but have been friends for years. They all reunite to help Libby renovate her aunt's hotel and to get Libby's baking school up and running.

This book was a fun, light read. It alternates between the three female leads Jessica, Libby and Eve who are trying to find themselves again in their lives. I thought I knew how this book was going to end but I was pleasantly surprised with the ending and I liked that the most about this book! There wasn't the predictable pairing off I was expecting and that was a welcome change.

Jenny's descriptions int his book were were spot on too and as a result I could picture everything with ease. It was so easy to feel like I was away in Tuscany baking and having fun with a group of friends I had loved forever while they tried to find their feet as adults and move on from the crossroads they found themselves at. 

I don't tend to read a lot books in this genre but since reading Becca's books within the genre I'm slowly beginning to read more of them. I like how they whisk you away and like I said before this one didn't end how you would have expected and I loved how one coupling is left a little unresolved, how we can fill in the gaps of that relationship and what follows ourselves.
