Blurb: For Tamsin Angel, Christmas is always the biggest and best… chic parties and a little showbiz sparkle are a must. This year though, things aren’t going quite as planned…

With bailiffs suddenly at the door and her husband nowhere to be found, it looks like Christmas just got downsized. Moving into her sister’s one-bedroom flat, she wonders whether things will ever be the same again.

After losing her husband on Christmas Eve, Sam Angel has rebuilt her life around her son Jacob and her new business – The White Angel Bakery. She’s also found herself a very handsome, loving boyfriend, but is struggling to let go of the past.

Thrown together with a sprinkle of Christmas magic, Sam and Tamsin might just learn a little more about each other – and themselves. But when disaster strikes at the bakery, will they be able to save the day in time for Christmas?

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

Review: Snow Angels, Secrets and Christmas Cake is the tale of two sisters who live life in a completely different way. Tamsin is a snob, she went from a more than difficult childhood to becoming a millionaire and is now completely obsessed with appearance, brands and throwing the most perfect refinate parties of the neighbourhood. Sam, on the other hand, is a free spirit. She does what she wants and doesn't care at all what other people think. After losing her husband, she is starting to get her life back on track, her bakery is going well and her little son is turning into an independent little man. So it's not a surprise that the two sisters don't really get along. But when Tamsin loses it all they are forced to life together and work together.

It took me a couple of chapters to get into the story, basically because I didn't like Tamsin a lot at the beginning. But after that, I found myself quite hooked with the story. It was really interesting to read how the two sisters reacted to all the drama and how they had to fight together to save it all. They became better versions of themselves thanks to each other and I discovered that Tamsin was actually quite fun and stronger than she first seemed. Plus, I was positively surprised because Sue Watson handles some serious topics during the story, like addiction problems and childhood traumas with such care. They give the story a depth that I was not expecting at first.  

And the men in this story play an important role too, from Sam's little son who is struggling to find his own identity after his father's death, her new boyfriend who might be getting tired of waiting, to Tamsin's gardener, who is willing to explore other gardens too, or her decorators, ready to save Christmas with a giant white reindeer. They all added something to the story and made it more special. 

This is a heart-warming story that reminds us what matters in life, love, trust, friendship, loyalty and believing in yourself. It has a festive atmosphere perfect for the holidays and I am sure that it will make you crave for cake and cupcakes. I wish The White Angel Bakery existed, I thing I would spend hours in there, enjoying Sam's perfect creations.
