When a family bereavement throws these two old friends together, they begin to question the true meaning of happiness.
Love is in the air, but do Allie and Chris have room in their hands-on lives for more than a summer fling?
This was such a treat of a read. I loved, loved the sound of this haven that the main character Allie Jones had created with The Cosy Cottage Café. Six years ago Allie’s life had turned upside down with the tragic death of her husband Roger. Wanting to start afresh for her two children and herself Allie bought the rundown cottage turning the bottom half into a café. A lifelong dream of hers since secondary school bringing so much joy and comfort not only to herself but also to the community.
The café was doing fine and Allie was happy with the life she had formed for her two now grown-up children, her two cats and herself. However, when a close friend from the past turns up she realises how much she has missed the bond she once shared with Chris.
Chris Monroe left the village just after his two close friends Roger and Allie married. Wanting to pursue a career in writing he sought the buzz of the city. Now a successful author with benefits of a great lifestyle it takes the sad death of his mother to bring him back to the village. He then realises what and who was missing from his life, Allie Jones.
The rekindling of friendship between Allie and Chris evokes many memories between them and emotions soon stir between them. Can love make way into each of their lives?
A gorgeous start to a new book series that I am already eagerly awaiting for the next instalment. A beautiful, cosy, heart warming romance.

So when the pressure mounts and an important decision has to be made, will Dawn and Rick’s marriage become stronger than ever, or will it be time to move in different directions?
This is the second book in the new cosy romance series by Rachel Griffiths and I’m loving it! I feel at home with these novels. The setting is perfect; a cosy cottage cafe in a small country village. The ideal haven for friends and family to have a cup of tea and a piece of cake to catch up on gossip, to forget about your everyday chaos, to meet and make new friends, to welcome in old friends. This little book series makes you feel like you are joining friends with the warm array of characters the author has created.
This second book concentrates on Dawn who is married to Rick and has two children. She’s just found out she is expecting her third child, a complete shock and surprise. Dawn had hopes of returning to her teaching career now the children were settled in school. However, with this new arrival now on the cards Dawn’s hopes of returning to work are put on the back burner. Dawn’s emotions are all over the place and she’s starting to feel a little vulnerable in her marriage. Rick works very long hours in the city and seems to be spending more time away from home. Can the couple get a little time together to work out their concerns?
Another gorgeous story from an author that is rapidly becoming one of my favourites.
