The Lemon Tree Cafe ~ By Cathy Bramley

The Blurb...

Rosie Featherstone loves her high-flying job at a social media firm. So what if she isn't married and settled like her sister? A relationship would only get in the way of this workaholic's hectic schedule.

So when she unexpectedly finds herself at a loose end for a month, Rosie keeps busy by helping her Italian Nonna serve espressos and biscotti at the Lemon Tree Cafe, a little slice of Italy nestled in the rolling hills of Derbyshire.

However, just when it seems she ought to head back to reality the appearance of an old acquaintance and a budding romance makes life at the cafe a lot more appetizing...

But when disaster looms, the cafe's fortunes- and Rosie's future- could be at stake. With surprise, betrayal and more than one secret brewing, can Rosie find a way to both save the Lemon Tree cafe and get the happy ending she deserves?

My Thoughts...

I loved Cathy's new book, so uplifting, romantic, joyful and full of little twists and turns. You can't help but fall in love with the characters. Nonna was my favourite; a strong, blunt woman with a heart. 

The Lemon Tree Cafe is such a great summer read. If you're going on holiday or having a trip to the beach then pack it in your bag! I personally enjoyed reading my copy in my local coffee shop on a less sunny day, it's so easy to be transported into a sunny, warm, village and a little cafe serving lemonade and small, delicious cakes!

A little extra surprise came with The Lemon Tree Cafe, a delicious recipe card for lemon drizzle cake plus, if you turn to the back, you're in for even more tasty treats! I'll be trying out the Almond Biscuits as they sound delicious (not to mention gluten free!) I've never seen this done in a novel before, I think its fantastic and has really added to this wonderful book.

This Book gets 5 Stars from me.
