Blurb: Kimmy Jones has three loves: cupcakes, gossip magazines and dreaming of getting fit just by owning celeb workouts.

When Kimmy's Sensible Boyfriend told her he didn't approve of her longing for the high life or her dream of starting a cupcake company Kimmy thought she could compromise – after all, she did return those five-inch Paris Hilton heels! But asking her to trade in cake-making for a job sorting potatoes is a step too far.

So, newly single - and newly homeless – Kimmy needs a dusting of Christmas luck. And, masquerading as a professional house sitter, her new temporary home is the stunning Mistletoe Mansion. Soon she’s best buds with glamorous next door golf WAG Melissa, and orders are pouring in for her fabulous Merry Berry cupcakes! The only thorn in her side is handsome handyman Luke, a distraction she definitely doesn't need. And talking of distractions, something very odd is going on at night…

Kimmy is finally living the life she’s always wanted. But will her glimpse into the glittering lifestyle of the rich and famous be as glamorous as she’s always imagined?

*First of all I would like to thank the author for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*  

Review: Mistletoe Mansion is my first book by Samantha Tonge but it won't be the last as I found this story highly entertaining, fast-paced and with so much drama and cake! Kimmy, our heroine, is like a breath of fresh air, funny, a bit celebrity-obsessed but with a golden heart. And a really talented baker. I was drooling with all the descriptions of her creations, oh god! I want cupcakes now! 

The secondary characters are also lovely. I especially liked Terry, the also gossip-obsessed man who lives next to Mistletoe Mansion and has a micro pig as a pet, how cool is that! As per the boys in this love triangle, I was totally team Luke, with those eyes... I really enjoyed his scenes with Kimmy, they were sparks flying but I was quite surprised with his secrets too!

There's also a bit of paranormal activity on the mansion and I was a bit sceptic at the beginning because I am not a big fan of ghosts on stories but Samantha handled it very well and it had the perfect fun and touching spark. 

All in all Mistletoe Mansion is a fun story that will leave you with a huge smile on your face. A bit over the top with all the drama going on but with the right message: believe in yourself. And be prepared to read about the most fantastic culinary creations. I actually loved all the cupcakes and I can't wait to try my hand at some of the flavour combinations Kimmy tried as I also love baking them.
