‘Scandal, romance and more feature in this delightful Regency novel full of humour, realistic dialogue and biscuits’ – Northern Reader

‘This book works really well as a stand alone book although it is part of a series and characters from the previous book are mentioned (and if you’re anything like me you will be so hooked by the stories of the sides at Belles that you will be bouncing up and down desperate for the next 2 books to come out!)
I would literally recommend this book to so many people, it is a story of acceptance and the characters learning about themselves whilst having so much drama that it will keep you turning the page’ – Amazon review

‘My own family always benefit when I read about Belles Biscuit Shop as it gets me into the kitchen baking goodies. The same happened when I read the first book in the series.’ – Roses are Amber

‘I love love, love the wit and banter between Henrietta and Sebastian, add into the mix a selection of charming secondary characters and a beautifully tender romance and you have all the ingredients of a genuine heart-warming, sparkly, atmospheric love story.’ – Chicks, Rogues and Scandals
