Such a lovely perfect novel
I adored this book! I thought it was well written, warm, witty and compelling enough to keep me turning the pages. The character development was fantastic and I felt like I really knew Lizzie, Jemma, Tom, Ben and little Ella. I could picture the cafe in my mind and it is pretty much my dream wedding venue! Just such a lovely, perfect novel!
I bought this book yesterday and had to ignore everything as I read it, it was brilliant. An excellent story with good strong characters and exceptionally well written. I can't wait for more!
Great romance with some surprising twists Great romance with some surprising twists. I especially liked some of the early chapters when Lizzie showed us what she made of, and thought the scene where she confronted Giles in the pub was superb. Fun debut from a writer who clearly has some exciting things up her sleeve. Look forward to her next book.J. L. Keer
