  • Enjoyable, light-hearted story - lovely ending

    This was quite a gentle story set around a cafe at the end of a pier in an English seaside town, where Jo takes over the day to day running from her elderly grandparents who want to step back and leave the cafe to her. As it was a series of five novellas before it has different sections for seasons of the year which I found really nice to read. Jo takes charge and revamps the cafe, getting it painted and generally redecorating, along with starting a love theme night where she sets up a couple of people she thinks will match one another but might otherwise not meet on blind dates. It's all secret, with little letters left to the two people she's chosen, asking them to come to a meal at the cafe after hours, where they meet one another and have a romantic meal in a part of the cafe that has been set up especially. Some worked, some didn't, but they all joined in with the fun and the love angle worked in other ways with different couples actually getting together. There were some really lovely characters in the book, along with a few possible love interests for Jo, but you were never quite sure who she would end up with, if anyone! I really loved how Jo's estranged mother was mentioned as living in Puerto Pollensa too, a beautiful place in Majorca, as my partner and I have holidayed here on multiple occasions and it's one of my very favourite places. Salthaven sounds like a lovely place to live with a great community spirit. Enjoyable, light-hearted story with a really lovely ending.

  • Enjoyable

    Nice easy read. Could almost imagine myself in the cafe, felt almost envious of the locals. Exciting to guess who Jo would end up with, sad I have now finished the book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
