Welcome to the Café at Seashell Cove, where you’ll find irresistible home-baked cakes, smiling friendly faces – and maybe even a second chance at love…
When Cassie Maitland needs a holiday from her glamorous but stressful job in event management, she escapes home to gorgeous Seashell Cove, where her family’s cosy café sits perched on the cliffs above sparkling waves and golden sand.
But a lot has changed while Cassie’s been away: her parents have transformed their tired café into a welcoming haven, her friends Meg and Tilly have whole new lives, and old flame Danny’s twinkling eyes and winning smile make Cassie feel even more flustered than they used to.
Keen to throw herself back into local life, Cassie starts to run themed events – including a not entirely successful cat-café day, complete with dozens of felines. Luckily Danny is always around to lend a helping hand, and Cassie soon begins to wonder if her life in London was really all she made it out to be…
Could a new start in Seashell Cove be exactly what Cassie needs?
A heart-warming and hilarious read about friendship, belonging and seaside living. Perfect for fans of Debbie Johnson, Holly Martin and Jenny Oliver.
I’m thrilled to be part of the blog tour for this wonderful book.
Karen Clarke has such a lovely writing style. You are quickly drawn into the story, meeting the characters and the setting and immediately feeling at home.
Cassie has left her high flying job as an event planner and come home to lick her wounds. She doesn’t tell her family that she was fired- or that it wasn’t the dream job she suggested it was.
She meets up with old friends and soon feels the comfortable draw of her hometown. She wants to make a mark on her family café- but are her parents really keen on her plans?! She has a few events planned and the ‘cat cafe’ has such potential for a disaster zone but sounded so wonderful.
She also gets drawn back into a childhood hobby and lets that be her comfort zone. I just loved the sound of the café and would be so keen to visit and I would be really tempted by the ‘event’s’.
It has such a lovely family feel- she is drawn back into the heart of the family and along with her brother try to make sure everyone is happy- including nan, who is a fantastic character.
There is a romance in the air and I was really rooting for Danny- the golden boy!
I have loved all the Karen Clarke books that I have read and will be keen to read her next release.
