A delightful, lighthearted romp taking you through notable places on the American East Coast over one week. The trip is full of emotion, family drama, secrets and delicious cakes at each stop. The transport is a red London double-decker bus kitted out with a kitchen on the top deck and the occupants a “household name” chef of fairy cakes, her bus driver mother (until the accident), a very sulky teenage daughter and eventually an old flame. Quite a mix of characters in a cleverly entwined, romantic tale of the first order. Brilliant.
A delectable tale of love, friendship and cake...Laurie loves a challenge. Especially if it involves tea-time and travel. So when British baking treasure Pamela Lambert-Leigh needs a guide on a research trip for her new cookbook, she jumps at the chance. The brief: Laurie and Pamela - along with Pamela's sassy mother and stroppy daughter - will board a vintage London bus for a deliciously unusual tour of the USA's East Coast, cruising from New York to Vermont. Their mission: To trade recipes for home-grown classics like Victoria Sponge and Battenburg for American favourites like Red Velvet Cake and Whoopie Pie. All the women have their secrets and heartaches to heal. As well cupcakes galore, there's also the chance for romance...But will making Whoopie lead to love?

'Belinda Jones is on top form here in this magical, winter wonderland of a book. It's wickedly funny, achingly romantic and I guarantee it'll make you yearn for crackling log fires, dark nights and mulled wine'
