“You might not ever read this letter – maybe life will take some unexpected twists and turns for us both, and my words will become meaningless. But I’d like to state, here and now, that in the event of my untimely death, I am leaving you the café in my will…”
Evie Flynn has always been the black sheep of her family – a dreamer and a drifter, unlike her over-achieving elder sisters. She’s tried making a name for herself as an actress, a photographer and a singer, but nothing has ever worked out. Now she’s stuck in temp hell, with a sensible, pension-planning boyfriend. Somehow life seems to be passing her by.
Then her beloved aunt Jo dies in a car crash, leaving Evie an unusual legacy – her precious beach café in Cornwall. Determined to make a success of something for the first time in her life, Evie heads off to Cornwall to get the café and her life back on track – only to get more than she bargained for, both in work and in love…
I got this book at the beginning of the year and have only just gotten round to reading it. It was one of the first ones I bought on my iPad and I had been unsure what to read when ever I had to decide on my next book to read.
I now wish I had picked it up sooner as I found this book to be really great. I was living the story with Evie.
As she went through the highs and lows of suddenly owning a business and her life being turned upside down so did I.
I found that I could predict a couple of parts of the book, which I don’t normally do, but it is a romance and in a way you could kind of guess how it would end, on that front, even without reading most of the book.
I loved how Evie’s character developed and grew as she took on responsibility and I was really happy when everything worked out for her at the end.
The content of the book coupled with the lovely sunny weather while I was reading it made it better as I could imagine the café on the beach with the sun shining on it.
I would definitely recommend this book to people who like the romance genre.
