Summer Freeman returns to the waterside village of Willowbeck to rescue the Canal Boat Café, her late mother’s picturesque narrowboat, which has run into choppy waters. A family friend, Valerie, has been trying to keep things afloat, but the coffee machine is jammed, the cake offerings are paltry, and not all of the locals want to see the café succeed.
Help comes from the boat next door, in the shape of handsome wildlife photographer, Mason and his naughty Border Terrier, who are showing more than a passing interest in Summer and her adorable Bichon Frise, Latte. But is Mason being honest about himself? Or does he have something to hide?
As her life and the community of Willowbeck begin to entwine, Summer finds herself setting sail on a new adventure. Will the anchor of a steady life on land be too strong, or can Summer learn to cut loose and embrace life afloat?
I won this book in a competition and I feel very lucky as it is such a brilliant easy read. Cressida is a new author to me and I am so glad I have discovered her, I will be reading more of her books soon too so keep an eye out on my blog. This story has romance, two really sweet dogs, a hot guy and lots of cakes and a canal boat cafe to top it all off with. I loved it from the very first chapter. A brilliant story and a few chuckles on the way though I did wonder if Summer was going to get her happily ever after or not.
