Written by Georgia Hill




Escape to the seaside for a new three-part series for fans of The Canal Boat Cafe and Willow Cottage

When Emma discovers that Berecombe’s fabulous book cafe is running a literary course for beginners, she is excited to give it a try. She always wanted to study more, and it doesn’t hurt that Joel, the suave and charming new teacher is pretty easy on the eye…

The more she learsn, the more she starts to question whether she really wants the life she has built up. Her boyfriend of forever, Ollie, is constrantly training with the RNLI, so they hardly get to see each other, and she is pretty sure Joel has a soft spot for her…

Will Joel sweep her off her feet? Or can Ollie make the most important rescue of his life?








A Definite Winner!     5 stars


When I find myself lying in bed shaking with laughter, my hand over my mouth whilst disturbing the slumbers of my OH, I know I’m enjoying this author’s latest novel – and it is a cracker!

This time round we find out more about Emma who works in the estate agent’s office alongside Tash, who was the focus of the first book in this lovely series. As a member of the Book Club, now a permanent fixture thanks to Millie, Emma get the opportunity to further her education. Never a star at school, she knows she has it in her to do better and sets off with hope in her heart. The only drawback is that with her being occupied and  boyfriend Ollie having signed up for lifeboat training, they barely set eyes on each other all week. When the very attractive tutor running the course seems to favour Emma, will it turn her head?

It’s such a joy to return to Berecombe and the characters who first popped up in Millie Vanilla’s Cupcake Cafe series .. books I fully recommend. The Little Book Cafe series stands well on it’s own merits, but it’s fabulous to encounter the people – and their dogs – that I feel I know so well. This author’s sense of humour shines through in all her writing, and there is always an extra giggle or two included for ‘those of a certain age’. Such great fun, and with a beautifully written and skilfully created story too, this is a definite winner! I find myself looking forward to the next one so I can get my Berecombe ‘fix’!!

My thanks to publisher Harper Impulse for my copy via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
