Jenny Colgan - Piciny ​Csodák Péksége
„Ínycsiklandóan ​ropogós és cukros”– Sophie Kinsella, a Boltkóros sorozat írónője Polly és Chris már hét éve együtt élnek, de kapcsolatuk válságba kerül. Chris visszaköltözik az anyjához, Polly pedig kiadó lakást keres. A hirdetések közt akad egy romantikusan csábító; egy apró szigeten álló házikó, ahová csak apálykor lehet eljutni autóval. Barátnője hiába próbálja lebeszélni az őrült tervről, Polly hajthatatlan. A kikötőfal fölött álló ház igencsak rozoga állapotban várja új gazdáját, és a barátságtalan helyiektől vásárolt ehetetlen péksütemény sem segít Polly hangulatán. Késő este süt néhány cipót, amiből hajnalban visz a halászoknak. A faluban hamar híre megy Polly süteményeinek, így a lány új barátokra, különc hódolókra – no meg esküdt ellenségekre – tesz szert, és ki tudja, talán a szívvel-lélekkel sütött finomságok őt is megváltoztatják, hogy képes legyen újra bízni és szeretni… A Találkozzunk a Cupcake Kávézóban írónőjének legújabb sikersorozatát Jojo Moyes és Jennifer Weiner olvasói is imádni fogják, hiszen Jenny ismeri az édes élet tökéletes receptjét: sok evőkanálnyi szívmelengetés, pár csepp könny, nagy adag szerelem és persze csipetnyi humor.
