    Description

    For fans of the Cake series by J. Bengtsson comes a funny, heartwarming companion novella featuring the Cake characters in lockdown. 

    Just like the rest of the world, the McKallisters find themselves struggling to conform to a new way of life after the virus confines them to their homes. These connected short stories give fans a chance to catch up on all of their favorite Cake characters as well as enjoy a bonus epilogue and interviews with the characters. 

    Find out how Jake and Kyle cope with isolation - and each other after they enter quarantine following exposure to the virus. Follow Finn and Emma as they desperately try to prevent a super-spreader event at Perryland - while attempting to ration the toilet paper. And go on a humorous journey with Quinn as he searches for a place to stay after initially refusing to lock down with the others. And in a bonus epilogue, Keith is called upon to lead the family on a secret mission that unites them all.

    Best family EVER!

    A great way to look into this pandemic and quarantine! The McKallister's just know how to bring their family together and do it with style! This is so relatable and a fun listen to distract us with the stress of 2020. I LOVE duet narration and Stella Hunter and Connor Crais were amazing! I love the versatility of their voices and the little extra chuckles and laughs along the way. If you love the Cake series, you have to get this and have a listen!

    Enjoyable

    This little novella was truly great. It is always fun to check in with the McKallister family. Jill's writing is so good that it makes you believe they are real people. With this terrible pandemic raging on, it was nice to bring some humor to an otherwise sad situation. I enjoyed the narrators, but would have loved to have Zachary Webber, Andi Arndt and Joe Arden revisit the characters. They have truly brought them to life.

    The McKallisters vs COVID 19

    I am a fan of the Cake series and this author. For those who are not familiar with the series it is worth a credit to try out the series. My guess is you will be hooked and read all in the series. This is a re-visit of the characters and how they are dealing with the challenges of COVID 19 in a fun way. It takes the disease and pandemic seriously while giving us all laughs we can relate to. In addition there is a bonus at the end to give more insight into the characters. Be ready to enjoy.

    Timely

    I am in bed recovering from COVID. I’m scared, in pain and miserable. Listening to some of my most loved characters going through COVID lockdown gave me a couple hours of much needed levity that I could relate to.

    Such a fun listen!!!

    The Cake Series is my favorite book series. And this addition did not disappoint!
    It was so much fun to get a glimpse into the McKallister family during COVID. Everyone has had different experiences during this time, but it was easy to connect with their family.
    The narration was a perfect fit too!

    A Diamond in the Rough Times

    This is such a fun treat to get this little novella about the beloved McKallister clan. It hits all the right spots. It is so relatable in so many ways. We learn that this crazy pandemic can affect anybody, from rock star to everyday folk, and handling the lockdown is just as hard for them as it is for us. Just when you start to worry about a Covid diagnosis, J. Bengtsson makes you laugh; then, you cringe, then you laugh again. There are even some poignant moments, and we go a little deeper with this family that we have grown to love and want to call our own.

    Of course, we were all curious about how the McKallisters were handling the lockdown, and luckily J. Bengtsson shared a sneak peek with such hilarity that only she can.

    There is a fantastic little bonus at the end, and once again, I can unequivocally say that J. Bengtsson is my favorite author, and I will always be listening and reading what she releases. If you are a McKallister family fan, you are in for a real treat! Hunker Down With The McKallisters is a diamond in this crazy pandemic world.

Quinn starts toward Emma's house but Grace (22) is home from grad school & convinces him to stay with her in their parents' guest suite.

    Loved it!!

    This is a perfect short story addition to the McKallister crew!! Make sure you read the other stories before this one because it will be much more meaningful! J. Bengtsson is my favorite author who writes in such a way that you actually feel like the characters are in your life.
