Cupcakes and Candlesticks by Nora Fountain
When Maddy’s husband Rob suddenly announces that he’s leaving her and moving to Canada with his pretty young employee, her world comes crashing down.
As Rob’s promises of financial support prove worthless, Maddy finds herself under growing pressure to forge a new life for herself and her four children. She decides to start a catering business, but will it earn enough money — and is that what she really wants? And then along comes the gorgeous Guy Deverill in the strangest of circumstances …
Fate conspires to throw every obstacle in her path from planning laws to sick children but she won’t give up.
