Double Review – Spring at The Cosy Cottage Café and A Wedding at The Cosy Cottage Café by Rachel Griffiths @authorRG #bookreview #feelgoodfiction

There are times in your life when you just want to escape from the world by turning off the TV, turn off your mobile and immerse yourself in a book.  I knew from past experience that the writing style of Rachel Griffiths would do just the job.  So I have the pleasure of sharing not one but two reviews of two of her novellas in her The Cosy Cottage Café series.

Artist Honey Blackwell is happy with her life. Well, almost. She lives in the picturesque village of Heatherlea, has three close friends and a soft spot for local supply teacher Dane Ackerman. If only she could put her past behind her and embrace the present.

Dane is working hard to prove himself at the village primary school and doesn’t really have time for love, but he’s drawn to Honey and hopes she feels the same. When a permanent teaching position is advertised in Heatherlea, he faces stiff competition to secure it.

As Honey and Dane deal with the ups and downs of life, will they be able to find a way to be together, or will they have to accept that sometimes love just isn’t enough?

Rachel Griffiths has a proven track record of writing cosy, warm hearted stories that have characters that are real and relatable and her settings are so idyllic that you just want to pack your bags and live within the pages.  Spring at The Cosy Cottage Café is book 4 in The Cosy Cottage Café series.

It’s been over two years since my last visit to The Cosy Cottage Cafe and the gang but as soon as I opened my kindle I felt very welcomed back into their lives. This little instalment is Honey’s story.  Honey is a local artist that is part of the lovely friendship group of Allie, Camilla and Dawn.  Honey has been carrying a heart breaking emotional scar for a long time that she hasn’t shared with anyone.  When her friendship with local teacher Dane becomes more she grows afraid of her past and instantly backs away from what could be a beautiful friendship.

With confusions of the heart and miscommunications from both Honey and Dane can the pair reach out to each other and share their innermost thoughts?

A gorgeous heart-warming story that has left me wanting more from The Cosy Cottage Café and I know I’ve got a wedding to look forward to, but who’s wedding is it?

When Allie Jones’ daughter, Mandy, arrives at The Cosy Cottage Café in tears one spring morning, Allie is extremely concerned. She’s been worried about her career-driven daughter for a while, and she’s hoping she’ll finally get to find out what’s wrong.

Dawn Dix-Beaumont has her hands full with three young children, a husband who works from home and the guinea pig family that lives in her garden. She’s happier than she’s ever been, but is it too good to last?

Camilla Dix is madly in love with local vet Tom Stone. Being with Tom and cuddling her baby niece have stirred feelings she didn’t know she had, but it’s far too soon to be making long-term plans. Isn’t it?

Honey Blackwell’s boyfriend, Dane Ackerman, has secured his teaching post at Heatherlea Primary School and they’ve decided to live together. Everything seems to be working out well, until a member of Honey’s household expresses a clear dislike for the handsome teacher.

Plus someone has been planning a proposal…

Join Allie and her friends this summer as cakes are baked, secrets are shared and surprises bring smiles and tears at The Cosy Cottage Café.

I love a wedding; the romantic proposal and the build up to the big day of celebrations but when you have four loved up couples in the village of Heatherlea which one of our couples is getting married?

This story follows on from book 4 (Spring at The Cosy Cottage Café) to when Allie’s daughter has returned home distraught.  Allie is trying to comfort her daughter and work out what has happened.

Whilst Allie is in talks with her daughter Dawn makes an upsetting discovery which is very sad but the author Rachel Griffiths has cleverly written around this storyline turning it into something quite wonderful.

Camilla also has concerns regarding decisions to her future and is so flummoxed about it all she inadvertently involves another one of our couples which turns into some amusing scenes.

A Wedding at The Cosy Cottage Café is another wonderful instalment in the idyllic setting of The Cosy Cottage Café were friendship, community spirit and love is the key to happiness all washed down with tea and cake.

I would wholeheartedly recommend reading all the books in the series in order to fully appreciate and enjoy the reading experience of this gorgeous cosy romance series.  The books in order are:

  • Summer at The Cosy Cottage Café
  • Autumn at The Cosy Cottage Café
  • Winter at The Cosy Cottage Café
  • Spring at The Cosy Cottage Café

A Year at The Cosy Cottage Café – an anthology of the first four books in the series

  • A Wedding at The Cosy Cottage Café
