For Willow, the ramshackle café overlooking the beach, together with its warm-hearted community, offers friendship as a daily special and always has a hearty welcome on the
menu. But when a handsome stranger blows in on a warm
spring breeze, Willow soon realises that her quiet country
life will be changed forever.

This book is the fourth from the comfort food cafe,although its a stand alone book. Its so beautifully written,with warmth and humour oozing from the pages. Budbury,where the book is set,has the most amazing caring and welcoming community,definitely somewhere i would love to live. Part of the story is about Willow and her mother and their relationship. Its written so honestly and yet so tenderly. There is a lot to this book, its got depth,humour,sibling rivalry,love,romance and people pulling together when it really matters. Its a gem of a read.
Review shall be up on my blog on publication day: thecosiestcorner.blogspot.com
What a lovely addition to the Comfort Food Cafe series. I've absolutely loved reading this series and this one was no different. I've been intrigued by Willow so it was nice to read her story and get to know her more. She's been seen as quite eccentric with how she dresses/acts etc but deep down she is such a lovely character with her own life worries.
Willow works at the Comfort Food Cafe but also does cleaning to help support her life and also her mums. Willow's mum Lynnie has the beginning of the horrible disease, alzheimer's so has to care for her mum when the disease takes hold and confuses her mum. It's quite an emotional and sad story and I really do feel for those going through this. It opened my eyes to what it's like and I found it to be a lovely but emotional story.
The story itself is so beautifully written and I was hanging onto every word. The characters were all lovely and it was so nice reading about some old familiar faces. Being back at the Comfort Food Cafe felt so nice and it was really lovely reading about my favourite fictional cafe again. One thing I do love about this series is the location, it sounds absolutely beautiful and not for the first time I find myself wishing that I was living somewhere like this!
This isn't your typical chick lit novel, it has a lot of hidden depth and is all about family, friends and love. It's such a nice story and possibly one of my favourites from this series. It will leave you feeling warm and cosy. Thank you to Netgalley and to the publisher for a chance to read this novel, which I have reviewed honestly.
