Today it's also my turn on the BlogTour The Cake Fairies by Isabella May.

About the Author

Cake, cocktail, churros, ice cream and travel obsessed, she also loves nothing more than to (quietly) break life’s rules. The Cake Fairies is her fifth novel.

About the book
1960's Somerset is no fun for cousins Polly and Annabelle Williams. Mourning their non-existent love lives, and the mundanity of village life, their only pleasure is baking - until a chance encounter has them magically transported to the bright lights of London... in 2019!

Promised a chance of love, first they must teach the people of the future about the simpler pleasures of life by becoming Cake Fairies. Over the course of a year they set off on a delectable tour of the UK, dropping off cakes in the most unexpected of places and replacing the lure of technology with much sweeter temptations.

But will their philanthropical endeavours lead them to everlasting love? Or will they discover you can't have your cake and eat it?
Review
May has certainly created a whole other sub-genre just for readers who love their fiction and/or romance with a bit of food porn. Foodie romance fiction for the people who enjoy it when their sweet-tooth and tastebuds are treated like one of the gang.

I loved the idea of cake becoming the connecting factor between people. The gesture of reaching out and bringing people together with a little sweetness. It's cake - what's not to like? I think the aspect of them having to sprinkle their sugary goodness here, there and everywhere in the future to ensure their happiness in the past, is a delightful premise.

Polly and Annabelle are cousins, who are transported to the future, with the help of a bizarre psychic come fairground attraction. Their desire to find love, happiness and a fulfilled life is in reach, but only after they have embarked upon a mission of sorts.

Creating a chain or sequence of events to connect and bring people together with kindness and beautiful gestures. Perhaps in a way infusing the 21st century with something that has become lost to a time period where technology has superceded face-to-face human communication and actual contact.Taking a slice of what was still the norm in the 1960s that we have somehow all let disintegrate.

It's a contemporary read, one of love and understanding, and friendship. It's important to hold on to relationships that bring you joy, strength and the sense of feeling safe. Those types of relationships aren't easy to come by, especially when it is family.

Buy The Cake Fairies at Amazon Uk or go to Goodreads for any other retailer. Buy at Amazon com.
