Summary: With Christmas just around the corner, the residents of Skipley village are gearing up for the annual bake off, and tensions are high.
            Winning means a lot to everyone involved - talented cake-shop owner Katie dreams of baking stardom, Rachel wants to prove she's more than a stay-at-home mom, and John hopes his culinary skills will impress the woman he loves.
            But when the judges discover that some cakes have been tampered with, the villagers' loyalties are called into question - whose ambition would stretch to sabotage, and why?
            The Christmas Bake-Off is an exclusive short story from Abby Clements, author of Meet Me Under the Mistletoe.  This edition also includes bonus recipes for cinnamon cookies and vanilla and almond biscuits.

This was a really cute little Christmas story with goodies, competition, family, friendship, and a little bit of romance thrown in.  I liked the characters - my favorite being John.  The winning recipe is included at the end of the book and they sound delicious so I'm going to have to give them a try this month.  

If you're looking for a quick Christmas read to help get you in the holiday spirit, this is a good one to try.
