The Comfort Food Cafe is perched on a windswept clifftop at what feels like the edge of the world, serving up the most delicious cream teas; beautifully baked breads, and carefully crafted cupcakes. For tourists and locals alike, the ramshackle cafe overlooking the beach is a beacon of laughter, companionship, and security – a place like no other; a place that offers friendship as a daily special, and where a hearty welcome is always on the menu.
For widowed mum-of-two Laura Walker, the decision to uproot her teenaged children and make the trek from Manchester to Dorset for the summer isn’t one she takes lightly, and it’s certainly not winning her any awards from her kids, Nate and Lizzie. Even her own parents think she’s gone mad.
Her new job at the cafe, and the hilarious people she meets there, give Laura the chance she needs to make new friends; to learn to be herself again, and – just possibly – to learn to love again as well.
For her, the Comfort Food Cafe doesn’t just serve food – it serves a second chance to live her life to the full…
You cannot get any more Summery than the front of this book, it has everything you want. Debbie Johnson is a new author to me and I thought I would give a couple of her books a try and I am so glad I did. This one is the perfect Summer read. I love the story line and I felt a warmth towards Laura who makes the decision to uproot her kids and go and work in a Cafe in Dorset. Expect lots of laughs along the way, I love the fact that they go to Dorset as I know it very well. I use to go the down there as a child and now my parents have gone to live down there I get to go there every month or so. I loved all the characters in this book and really didn’t want it to end.
