nice story but a little slow. the main character was someone you could really identify with
The so called heroine of this book is a total doormat, and I just wanted to shake her. I can't believe anybody would act like her and allow herself to be put upon in such a way. She is such a whinging boring character that frankly I really didn't care what happened to her. The story was also spoiled for me by the dreadful Irish accent the reader uses for the main love interest. I normally really enjoy Carole Matthews, but I would recommend that you don't waste your money on this one.

What disappointed you about The Cake Shop in the Garden?
I had really looked forward to this but sadly it didn't deliver at all. The main character was pathetic and unlikeable, and the storyline completely predictable. The narration was totally mismatched, the main character sounded like an old woman and the fake Irish accent was truly awful! <br/>Very disappointed.

Didn't like this boom at all. It was drawn out too long and way too predictable. I was hoping it was near ending as I knew what was going to happen but when I checked how long was left there was still 7 1/2 hours to go! Felt like moving on but as is paid for it and wanted it to be good I kept going. A couple of surprises 3/4 of the way through but not enjoyable for me and I normally love cutesy romantic love stories.
This book was so frustrating as the heroine was so downtrodden and self-sacrificing that it was almost unbelievable. This was a disappointment as have read other Carole Matthews 's book and really enjoyed them.
