Review: Frosty Mornings at Castle Court by Holly Hepburn

Sadie is a single mum, nursing a broken heart. Cat is burned out from working long hours as a chef. They decide to invest in their dream – running their own handmade biscuit shop in gorgeous Castle Court, a three-storey food court tucked away behind Chester's bustling streets.
They soon discover that Castle Court has its own community – a little haven of delight against the stresses of the outside world. But not everyone welcomes the new business; the patisserie owner is less than pleased by what she sees as direct competition and Greg, who runs the fancy bistro that dominates one end of the courtyard, doesn't think Sadie and Cat have the talent or business acumen to succeed. Luckily, there's support in the form of the delectable Jaren, who owns the Dutch waffle house opposite Smart Cookies, and Swiss chocolate-shop owner,Elin. And if all else fails, the friends can drown their sorrows in the cocktail bar that overlooks the court.

Review: well its all go at Castle Court once again, don't think that because this is the second in the series, things are going to slow down-because they're not! This is one of the things I love about the way Holly Hepburn writes her serialised novels, every single instalment has as much action in as a full blow novel and each instalment in the series gets more and more action packed. 

In terms of characters in this instalment, we don't get to see as much of everyone as we did in Snowy Nights at Castle court but that's because we were getting to know the characters last time. In this instalment, the characters are established and so we get to know a little more about how they tick. Cat and Sadie are both thrown into difficult and uncomfortable situations and they have to deal with these much more on their own than as a duo and I liked this because I got to know them more individually rather than as a biscuit making team. 

There is also some travel outside of Castle Court this time around, which I quite enjoyed. It was also interesting to learn a little more about the history behind Cat and Sadie's friendship and I hope we will get to know a little more about their previous lives in future instalments. I'm also hoping that the next in the series, following on from valentines day, will continue the theme of love and romance because I love finding out all the juicy gossip about relationships in the court!
