    1. I’ve been really looking forward to reading Heartaches and Christmas Cakes, and I’m pleased to say I absolutely loved it.This is a heart-breaking yet also heart-warming wartime family saga with some great characters and a wonderful close-knit community. I’d say this is quite a quick read, especially as the story flows so well and is hard to put down.Sometimes I feel like I have it hard being a Navy wife, but I don’t know how family and loved ones of those serving away during the war actu [...]


    2. Once again, you find me reviewing a book I wouldn’t normally pick up but I was swayed by the words “bakery” and “wartime” because weird as it sounds, stories set in World War II always seem to intrigue me. If like me, the word “romance” gives you the heebie-jeebies, let me tell you that while there is some of that going on here, it’s not the be all and end all of this tale. So please don’t let that put you off!Charlie and Audrey Barton run a bakery in Bournemouth when war break [...]


    3. I don’t read many books in this genre and when I read a book as wonderful as this one it makes me wonder how many fantastic reads I’m probably missing out on.Heartaches and Christmas Cakes was a book I literally could not put down. I started it on a Sunday afternoon and didn’t put it down until I finished it. At 260 pages it was a relatively quick read. This is actually one of those books though that no matter how long it is, it isn’t quite enough as I loved every minute of it and I didn [...]


    4. Thank you Amy Miller for such an incredible story. If I didn't know this was fiction I would swear I was reading a family's war time account! At Christmas time in December 1940 all Audrey wants is for her family to be together enjoying the good times. We sure don't always get want we want though,not by a long shot. The Barton family finds WWII on their doorstep and it has changed everything. The Barton family bakery in Bournemouth has served their community for many years. It's a friendly neighb [...]


    5. Frequent followers of my blog will know about my love for historical fiction, particularly ones that are based in World War Two. I absolutely adored Heartaches and Christmas cakes and the authors description of life at a small bakery during the early part of the war.I was immediately drawn into life at Barton’s bakery in Brighton and loved getting to know all the people there. The way the book is written gives the reader a fly on the wall view of life at the bakery and I quickly felt that I kn [...]


    6. Set in war-time Bournemouth this story centres round one of the town’s bakery’s, Charlie and Audrey Barton their families and friends. The Barton’s have been town bakers for generations and even war doesn’t stop Charlie and Audrey being inventive to create new ways to provide goods for their customers. Audrey is the rock in the story, the glue that keeps everyone together.This is how the people back home dealt with not knowing if loved ones serving were even still alive, as weeks turned [...]


    7. Heartaches and Christmas Cakes by Amy Miller takes us back to the fall of 1939 in Bournemouth, England. Audrey and Charlie Barton own Barton’s Bakery providing delectable delights for the people in their area. The bakery is a place where everyone knows they will be welcomed and have a chance to exchange a little gossip. War has caused many changes in their lives including rationing of food and clothing. Audrey’s brother, William heading off to fight with the British Expeditionary Forces. Wil [...]


    8. Heartaches and Christmas Cakes is the first in a new wartime bakery series from Amy Miller and by the time I finished this story I found it to be one of the better war time sagas I have recently read. Admittedly it did take me some time to really get into the story but once I did there was no stopping me as I raced to the end of the book. There were a lot of characters to familiarise myself with, but I suppose that is what comes with the introduction of any new series. But after a time, I felt l [...]


    9. Oh my goodness, I loved the story of Audrey and her extended family! I am only sorry that it took me so many months to start reading it. On a brighter note, book #2 is nearly out and so I can read it very soon and continue getting completely immersed in the community which is centred around Audrey and Charlie's bakery in Bournemouth. Audrey is a young woman who is married to a baker, Charlie, whose family has had a bakery in Bournemouth for generations. When war breaks out, Charlie is keen to en [...]


    10. If like me you are rather partial to a wartime family saga then Heartaches and Christmas Cakes will be right up your street. As soon as I spotted this book was available I knew I needed to read it.Set in Bournemouth at the onset of war this follows the Barton family bakery. Audrey and Charlie run the little store and this is the heart of the community.Audrey is an absolute diamond, she takes on everybody’s woes, looks out for those less fortunate and worries constantly about family and friends [...]


    11. Loved this read. Set in Bournemouth during the 1940 war. Audrey barton runs bartons bakery with her dear husband Charlie. Lily audreys step sister turns up from London to stay with them with a big worrying secret. With all the worrys of war upon them struggling to get by. I loved this book it had me hooked all the way through. And was sorry to see it end but so looking forward to the next instalment wartime brides and wedding cakes.


    12. Thank you to Netgalley and the Publishers, Bookouture, for this review copy, provided in exchange for an honest review. Also thanks to Kim from Bookouture for organising the Blog Blitz and allowing me to be part of it.Set at the beginning of the 40’s, right in the middle of World War II, Audrey Barton along with her husband Charlie run the Barton Family Bakery in Bournemouth. Things aren’t easy at the minute with wartime rationing, but they get by with their cakes and bread being well known [...]


    13. I received an arc copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for my honest review. I normally love Christmas books but I really had a hard time getting into this one.


    14. Family saga type books are my go to books when I want a break from psychological and crime thrillers . Therefore I was very excited to read the blurb for this book as I knew it was right up my street . If like myself you like this genre then you will love this .Set in Bournemouth in the 1940's Audrey and Charlie Barton have a family bakery business which is at the heart of the local community . They may not have lots of money but the kindness and love they have for their family and friends is gr [...]


    15. This is a very emotional story set in December 1940 in Bournemouth, The Barton family bakery, Audrey and Charlie Barton. The war has just broken out. Audrey longs for a child after 5 unsucessful years and Charlie who has been rejected from joining up, instead does his bit by baking for the locals during the war.Lily Audrey's step sister comes from London to escape her overbearing father and Audrey finds out that she is expecting after a fling with her boss. Also they take an evacuee a child call [...]


    16. Living Through the First Year of WWII I was attracted to this story through a friends review on . I've always had a desire to read WWII fictional stories because my father served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during that time and was deployed overseas to serve in England. My mother stayed home with my two preschool aged sisters and worked at an ammunition factory to make ends meet. I'm always very interested in the war time stories as they help me to understand what both mom and dad went throu [...]


    17. I have been known to be partial to a WW2 saga but I don't read a huge amount of them these days. When I do read one I need it to be a good one and I'm happy to report that Heartaches and Christmas Cakes is up there with the best of them.We meet Audrey Barton and her family in Bournemouth right at the start of the war. She and her husband, Charlie, run a bakery and it was the shop being so central to the story that really attracted me to the book in the first place. It's a real hub, as shops ofte [...]


    18. This book really lived up to it’s name. There were lots of Christmas cakes and tons of heartaches.I enjoyed the backdrop of the bakery. It was fascinating to see how they dealt with the rations. I was also surprised at how important the bakery was during the war. They were given special privileges, such as Charlie being exempt from the war, because they had to feed people.This was such a heart wrenching story. Pretty much everything that could go wrong to a town during the war happened to thes [...]


    19. Books about the lives of women in World War 2 seems to be my ‘go to’ genre when I need a break from murder & psychological thrills (strictly through reading about them I hasten to add!)Charlie & Audrey Barton run a family bakery. They work hard and the bakery is at the heart of the community. After World War 2 is declared many changes are ahead. Charlie resents the fact he is in a ‘reserved’ occupation and feels bad about not being able to do his bit especially when Audrey’s br [...]


    20. donnasbookblog.wordpress/I am a HUGE fan of historical fiction and I couldn't wait to read this one as soon as the cover was revealed by the publishers I knew it would be a book for me! The plot is so well thought out and detailed that you really do feel as though you are living with the characters through the story.  It is a fantastic family saga and was genuinely heart-warming, the whole story was believable and the writing style was superb - so looking forward to the next book!! I loved ev [...]


    21. This book was so hard to put down, I was very pleased that at the end you find out there will be another book. I can not wait to find out what happens next. Although it is a heartbreaking book in many ways,especially set in world war 2. It is very heart warming and you can feel the community spirit between those that are left behind while the others are off fighting.It was very well written and although a short read it does not hinder the quality of the book at all , as sometimes short books can [...]


    22. This is a fantastic 5 star family saga set during World War, in Bournemouth. Charlie and Audrey are married, they run a bakery. Charlie wants to join up however his job as a baker is a reserved occupation. Audrey longs for a child and keeps herself busy. We meet many of their family and friends in this story as everyone suffers untold hardship and problems. This is the first in a series, I believe, and did end quite suddenly. I look forward to the next one.


    23. One I couldn't put downI love this one. I don't know why but I felt the details of. war, death, bombing raids and the scariifices of both soldiers and those at home waiting for loved ones to return as how they survived the horror of war. I think you will really like this one. Well done.


    24. FantasticWhat can I say this book was a fabulous read from page 1 reading about Audrey who kept the family and friends going Lily and Elsie and little Mary. A book about Christmas and baking can't wait for book 2 from Amy a well deserved 5 stars if I could of gave more I would have .


    25. Wartime familyFrom the first page I fell in love with all the characters. Enjoyed there happy times and cried with them at there sad. I have enjoyed learning about how everyone coped with the war and lack of food. Looking forward to the follow on book. A must read. Thank you Amy.


    26. Read in one sittingBeautifully written and truly shows the goodness of people, while describing the horrors of war. This book felt more like watching a good film. Can't wait for the next one.


    27. Very enjoyable and moving story. I love reading stories set during WWII. This story is set in England and is about a family owned bakery and the people in their neighborhood who are like family. It tells about the struggles they encounter. I am looking forward to the next book.


    28. A Very enjoyable book.I really enjoyed reading this book. It was full of endearing characters, Audrey being at the centre of a family made up of blood relatives, friends and an evacuees. Never a dull moment, I can't wait for the next book, I would highly recommend to a friend.


    29. It was engrossing. I like historical novels. The characters of Audrey and Lily were especially appealing and well developed.
