Gingerbread Syrup

I wanted to share this quickly before our train to beautiful Scotland for Christmas. Are you worried that you won’t be able to have your gingerbread latte in the new year? Don’t worry, make your own gingerbread syrup (and even better your own lattes so that you don’t spend all that money in well-known coffee chains). If making lattes then you’ll want a stove top, a milk frother and some finely ground coffee ( I am a big Pact coffee fan). Make your coffee, heat and froth your milk, then pour your syrup into your cup followed by the milk and coffee. BAM. Christmas in your mouth.

Midnight and Mistletoe at Cedarwood Lodge

Christmas has come early!! Rebecca Raisins’s final book in the Cedarwood Lodge trilogy has come out and my gosh what a finale, I loved it!! I read it in two days but only because I had to go to work.


I want to live in every ‘world’ Rebecca creates and be friends with all of the characters. If you need a Christmas read, buy all three Cedarwood Lodge books, get a mulled wine and a chair by the fire; Christmas sorted.

Celebrations & Confetti – Rebecca Raisin


Somehow, she has done it again. Everytime Rebecca writes a book, or even a series of books (she is prolific – thank goodness, I can hardly wait as it is) and I don’t see how she can do it better or differently, she does. Rebecca’s books are my happy place. Every single one of them. I love them all. Whilst Cee Cee and Lil from the Gingerbread Cafe will always be my favourites (they were my first Rebecca Raisin books), all over the characters, settings and stories have such a place in my heart. I love them all. This book is no exception. Rebecca’s ability to write down to Earth, relatable and loveable characters amazes me. She is one of those people who just gets people. She also manages to write the type of books where you wish every single one of them was your life. I genuinely don’t know how she does it, or why you haven’t bought all of them yet.

The Little Antique Shop Under the Eiffel Tower

Rebecca Raisin has written a new book. THANK GOODNESS! I have been waiting for what feels like ages. It was in fact only October last year that her last book came out, ‘The Little Bookshop on the Seine‘ and the observant amongst you will remember that in May the cover of this latest book ‘The Little Antique Shop Under the Eiffel Tower’ was revealed. I haven’t ever read a Rebecca Raisin book I didn’t like love and I cannot tell you how much I enjoy the fact that they connect, all the stories from the Gingerbread Cafe,  the Bookshop on the Corner and the Maple Syrup Farm, in Ashford, Connecticut to Paris and this treasure of an Antique shop with its mysterious owner Anouk all are linked in some way. They stand alone but the real magic is in having read them all.
