Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe By Debbie Johnson

Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe By Debbie Johnson

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…

My Thoughts:

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.

Viven’s Heavenly Ice Cream Shop by Abby Clements

Viven’s Heavenly Ice Cream Shop by Abby Clements

When Imogen and Anna unexpectedly inherit their grandmother Vivien’s ice cream parlour, it turns both their lives upside down. Thabby clementse Brighton shop is a seafront institution, but though its big on retro charm its critically low on customers. If the sisters don’t turn things around quickly their grandmother’s legacy will disappear forever. With summer fast approaching, Imogen and Anna devise a plan. Rather than sell up, they will train up and make the parlour the newest destination on the south coast foodie map. While Imogen watches the shop and conjures new marketing ideas, her sister flies to Italy to attend a gourmet ice cream making course. But can their best laid plans survive their warring family, tempestuous love lives and the great British weather? one thing is for certain this summer will be like no other.

My Thoughts:

I absolutely loved this book a few of my favourite things wrapped into one ice cream, the seaside and Italy. This is a fantastic little summer read, it made me want to taste all the different flavours of ice cream and there is some very good recipes at the end of the book. I managed to read this book in a day i just couldn’t put it down. All the ice cream flavours sound amazing and I’m off out tomorrow to buy another Abby Clements book as she has left me wanting more.
