Lizzie Dixon‘s life feels as though it’s fallen apart. Instead of the marriage proposal she was hoping for from her boyfriend, she is unceremoniously dumped, and her job is about to go the same way. So, there’s only one option: to go back home to the village she grew up in and to try to start again.
Her best friend Jemma is delighted Lizzie has come back home as she has just bought a little cafe and Lizzie’s sewing skills are just what she needs to help get it ready for the grand opening.
With a new venture and a new home, things are looking much brighter for Lizzie. But can she get over her broken heart, and will an old flame reignite a love from long ago…?
If you fancy a light hearted read with a side dish of cakes, this is the book for you. I love the way when Lizzie’s plans go awry and she moves back to her old village that people from the community rally round to help her including her best friend Jemma. I loved the idea of Lizzies new venture and loved seeing how it would all come together. A nice little story that is an easy read.

When Rosie Featherstone finds herself unexpectedly jobless, the offer to help her beloved Italian grandmother out at the Lemon Tree Cafe – a little slice of Italy nestled in the rolling hills of Derbyshire – feels like the perfect way to keep busy.
Surrounded by the rich scent of espresso, delicious biscotti and juicy village gossip, Rosie soon finds herself falling for her new way of life. But she is haunted by a terrible secret, one that even the appearance of a handsome new face can’t quite help her move on from.
Then disaster looms and the cafe’s fortunes are threatened . . . and Rosie discovers that her nonna has been hiding a dark past of her own. With surprises, betrayal and more than one secret brewing, can she find a way to save the Lemon Tree Cafe and help both herself and Nonna achieve the happy endings they deserve?
The cover of this book is so colourful and inviting, it makes you want to jump right in. You can’t go wrong with a Cathy Bramley book, you just know your going to get a real corker and this story did not disappoint. There is love, secrets, surprises and a whole lot of tasty sounding food. Loved it.

Can the ladies of the Sunflower Cafe help Connie scrub away the hurt? And can Brandon make her trust again?
I have read all of Milly Johnson’s other books and completely adored them, I didn’t think Milly would be able to top her previous book the Teashop on the Corner but she really has. This book was superb, it is quite a chunky book but I devoured it in two days straight. There were quite a few characters in this book most with what I would call real life problems, I loved reading all there stories, I really liked Connie and Della I could see myself in them sometimes. I thought Brandon the chocolatier sounded lovely, who wouldn’t want a hunky man but one that works with chocolate it is every woman’s dream. This is a brilliant book that will have you in stitches as there are some very funny moments, it has a twist in the plot that you could never imagine but it will leave you with a big ahhhh!! at the end. This is definitely one of my favourite books for this year. Pure Delight!!
