Evie Flynn has always been the black sheep of her family – a dreamer and a drifter, unlike her over-achieving elder sisters. She’s tried making a name for herself as an actress, a photographer and a singer, but nothing has ever worked out. Now she’s stuck in temp hell, with a sensible, pension-planning boyfriend. Somehow life seems to be passing her by.
Then her beloved aunt Jo dies suddenly in a car crash, leaving Evie an unusual legacy – her precious beach cafe in Cornwall. Determined to make a success of something for the first time in her life, Evie heads off to Cornwall to get the cafe and her life back on track – and gets more than she bargained for, both in work and in love..
I loved this book so much, I actually felt as if I was part of the day to day running of the cafe and I thought Evie was lovely, like you could really get on with her. I love the way Lucy seems to be able to create such loveable characters and the way she writes about Cornwall, well I just want to go there now and find the Beach Cafe. This is a great holiday read if your going away especially to Cornwall. You can easily lose yourself into this story. I look forward to reading Christmas at the Beach Cafe. This book definitely deserves a five star.
