A new season…
As winter turns to spring, Hollie – the owner of The Starfish Café – is feeling content as she settles into her new life with her loving boyfriend, Jake, and their adorable dog Pickle.
But when an unwelcome visitor threatens the future of her café, Hollie must stay strong to protect her family’s legacy…
A leap of faith…
Emerging from an unhappy relationship, Tori finds herself with nowhere to stay and nobody to talk to. The long-hidden secrets of her past weigh heavily on her until a chance encounter with Finley, struggling to come to terms with his own secrets, provides an opportunity to open up.
Can she find the strength to stop hiding from her past and face up to her family? Especially when that would mean letting her guard down and learning to trust again…
A fresh start…?
Little do Hollie and Tori know that their lives are about to collide at The Starfish Café and they may be able to help each other with a fresh start. After all, with good friends in your life, nothing is impossible…

My Thoughts…

A springtime visit to the seaside is always welcome. Add in some believably created characters, a complex mix of emotion and drama and a welcoming cafe, and I’m in book heaven. The second story in the Starfish Cafe series continues from the first with many favourite regulars and some intriguing new faces.

I enjoyed finding out about Hollie and Jake’s relationships and their home life, which is relatable and uplifting to read. This story takes the reader on an emotional journey full of laughs, shocks and tears with new characters Tori and Finley, whose tentative friendship is a focus of this.

The authentically created setting makes the story stand out. It’s full of realistic details that bring it and the characters to life. It’s the perfect book to escape with for an hour or two.
