About the author
Julie Caplin is addicted to travel and good food. She’s on a constant hunt for the perfect gin and is obsessively picky about glasses, tonic and garnishes. Between regular gin tastings, she’s been writing her debut novel which is set in just one of the many cities she’s explored over the years.
Formerly a PR director, for many years she swanned around Europe taking top food and drink writers on press trips (junkets) sampling the gastronomic delights of various cities in Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, Copenhagen and Switzerland. It was a tough job but someone had to do it. These trips have provided the inspiration and settings for the trilogy, The Little Cafe in Copenhagen, The Little Brooklyn Bakery and the The Little Paris Patisserie.
Julie also writes contemporary romance as Jules Wake. Her current novel, Covent Garden in the Snow, is a Kindle bestseller.

The Northern Lights Lodge
I started reading this authors books under her other writers name, Jules Wake. Have loved every single one and gave them all a five star rating. This is the first one I couldn’t really feel that way about. I can’t put my finger on why, just couldn’t get into the story or even the characters. Still a decent book.
Good story, needed better editing
I really enjoy this series. The stories are fun and heart warming. It has been a wonderful stress relief to come home after work and slip into the delightful stories.
This story in particular has amazing descriptions of the beauty and natural wonders of Iceland. The author did an excellent job of painting each scene so that the reader truly feels they are in each location.
I do have to say, that I really wish the proof reader had done a more conscientious job with this book. The editing leaves much to be desired. It breaks the spell created by the author when words are out of place, or misused. Poor punctuation, grammar, and layout cause hiccups in the imagery, in what would otherwise be a delightful read.
Five stars for the author, two stars for the editor.
