Katie’s Cornish Kitchen by Rosie Chambers
After the heartbreak of being jilted by her fiancé, Katie Campbell has been mending her broken heart in Bali. She has local restaurant owner and new friend Agatha to thank for providing a listening ear in her moment of need. When Katie confides she’s worried about going back to what’s left of her life in London, Agatha has just the opportunity for Katie – to manage her old café in the beautiful, picturesque village of Perrinby in Cornwall.
Although reopening the café and making it profitable won’t be easy, Katie is determined to make the most of her fresh start. She quickly makes new friends in florist Jay, waitress Talia and handsome neighbour Oscar, and focuses on making the café a welcoming place for the community – from hosting floristry workshops to pizza-making nights and even the local knit-and-natter group. But, with the café under threat from the local property developers circulating just as she’s starting to grow closer to Oscar and finally feeling at home, can Katie find the recipe to make her Cornish Kitchen a success?
There are so many familiar and well-loves tropes in this book - new beginning in an unfamiliar place, an unexpected benefactor, friends to lovers, nuisance ex, an even more of a nuisance baddie, quirky characters, a hunky fella with a secret and heartache in his past, a summer fate, a cafe, and a misunderstanding - it's got the lot, and to top it all off, it's set in Cornwall!
Lighthearted good fun, with a couple of more serious moments to balance the emotion.
