I’ve stepped away from book review posts, I love to read but I love to blog about food. However, some books just blur the lines between food and books and inspire recipes, so I have to share them. I often blog about Rebecca Raisin’s books (and I often wish I lived in them) and this one is just far to fabulous to not share with you (I already have once in fact). I suggest you read the whole Ashford (Connecticut) series beginning with the Gingerbread Cafe Trilogy, moving onto Sarah’s bookshop (who is soon going on an adventure in Paris with a Paris mini-series is on the cards) and then find yourself at the Maple Syrup Farm (and eagerly awaiting all the Rebecca Raisin books that are yet to be released). I could not put this book down, I even had to read it on the bus (and I cannot read on buses at all), it was all consuming and fabulous and just the escape I needed (what I need more though is the sequel).
When Rebecca announced she was doing a book release blog tour I jumped at the chance! I tell everyone I can about how much I love her books, so I thought I’d shout it from my blog too.

Fall in love with Ashford, Connecticut in this dazzling and beautiful romance from bestselling author Rebecca Raisin.
Every time I read a book by Rebecca set in or around the Ashford series, I pine for the place, the community and the Gingerbread Cafe and as such I was far too excited by this map of the town itself that Rebecca sent out…
Go on, get sucked into the Ashford way of life and give in to the deliciousness of it all.
