Still grieving after the loss of her beloved husband, Lily Mortimer is determined to do something with the time she has left.
After the end of her fairytale marriage, thirty-something Kate is trying hard to mend her broken heart.
Chloe, a young woman with the world at her feet, is struggling to know what to do with her life.
When Lily embarks on a new venture in the picturesque town of Somerley, the three women come together to open The Coffee Stop, the most charming café for miles around.
But opening a coffee shop is never as simple as it seems, especially when you add neighbouring competition, local heart throbs and heartbreak to the mix.
When tragedy strikes, can the three women pull together to make the new business fly, or will Lily’s last chance disappear down the drain along with yesterday’s coffee grinds?
Well I don't know where to start with this or what to say. I was lucky enough to get a review copy of this book, and reading the description It really sounded like something I wanted to read. Finding out the Author was non other than than the fantastic Mel Sherratt author of the brilliant Estate series and Allie Shenton books, made me want to read it even more, although I was also wondering if i could enjoy it knowing it was a big change in direction.
I have to say Mel/Marcie really pulled it off with this book.
It was really an enjoyable read. i liked the characters, I loved the way the story was told, and the direction it took.
Chloe, Kate and Lily. What a great trio of characters. 3 Characters that are so different yet so similar. I loved these 3 and loved how they were together, how things panned out for them.
I started off feeling like I was just going along with the story, before I knew it, I felt like I was involved in the story, each time I made myself a Latte to sit and have a read, I imagined it had been made for me in the Coffee Stop.
I'd say if you read this book the things you will need are.
