    Well-Crafted and Beautifully Written!

    If you expect this to be another tale of a modern cafe in a beautiful setting, then you're way off the mark. This is a deeper read, set in an area of London ripe for regeneration and a family who have had to fight and struggle for all that they have. Abby owns Rosie Lee's, a traditional cafe in the heart of the East End. She can't afford to compete with all the new style coffee shops and is barely making ends meet. She knows something is going to have to give, but is putting off any decisions until she sees her daughter Lucy set off to Bristol for university. As a single parent, and one with a poor relationship with her own mother, she has put all her energies into making Lucy aware that she is loved, always. Her brother Matt has been a fabulous support ever since she had Lucy and it has brought the siblings closer. There are plenty of secrets revealed in this novel .. Abby is not aware of lots of things and she isn't the only one. Neither was I! Just when you think things have settled, another one comes crawling out of the woodwork! This is a well-crafted novel, carefully plotted, beautifully written and including mystery, romance, family secrets, sadness and so much more. It is a fabulous read - one which will keep you glued to the page and have you rooting for Abby and her future. Listed as 'a frank, funny, feel-good look at grown-up life and love' this is one book which lives up to it's publicity. Moving along at quite a pace, never leaving time to ponder what's coming next as the revelations spill. Definitely a must read, and one I'm very happy to recommend. My grateful thanks to author Jane Lacey-Crane for posting about her novel on twitter which alerted me to submit my request via NetGalley, and also to publishers Aria for approving my copy. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
