    Relaxing read

    Well I’m glad to say this isn’t a ‘sissy potboiler’, what it is however is an easy to read and uncomplicated book which is very relaxing to read. This is the first book I’ve read by Liz Eeles and whilst I read it quite happily as a stand-alone something about it made me suspect the characters were not new to her and I think reading the first Cosy Kettle book first would enhance your enjoyment of this. The characters were a wonderful mixed bunch, especially Stanley who is extremely colourful and joyous. Flora, the main character is well written with her insecurity about where her future lies. There were some bits I predicted but overall this was a good laidback read.

    Re-inventing Yourself

    This story is written as a first person narrative where characters are described directly. The main conflict is internal as the main character battles with themselves but the secondary conflict is external as the character battles other characters and society norms. The popular themes shown throughout include change of power, communication, death, fear of failure, heartbreak of betrayal, lost honour, lost love, oppression of women, self-reliance, and wisdom of experience. Flora is a small town bookstore and café owner who is attempting to figure out who she really is and how much of her life she has been hiding from. Luna is a fellow shop owner in Honeyford who is all new age magic and helping others, her son Daniel is more traditional mannered than his mother. He is a widowed and has a young son named Caleb. Malcom is Flora’s husband who spends most of his time in his restaurant and does not approve of Flora’s venture into owning her own business. Flora has taken off to Honeyford after discovering Malcom cheating with a much younger woman who works for him. While contemplating her next move, she meets Luna who offers a place to stay after sensing that her soul needs some recharging and nurturing. There she meets Daniel who is the opposite of his mother and works in finance even though he dislikes it. Slowly both Daniel and Flora begin to heal from destroyed relationships, but Malcom isn’t giving up so easily. The ideas are interesting and in a unique placement throughout the story. The flow is organized and logical while the voice is unique to this work. The word choice and sentence structure help to enhance the overall story. Yes, I would recommend this book. This would be the book for those who enjoy success stories, short reads about character growth, or any small town stories. This book would not be good for those looking for lots of action, steamy love scenes or lots of drama.

    A wonderful, summery, fun book

    We are back at the Cosy Kettle cafe in Honeyford. This time the book focuses on Flora who owns the bookshop that the cafe is inside. Flora returns home early one afternoon and finds her husband Malcolm in a compromising situation with one of his waitresses from the restaurant he owns. Although he begs Flora to stay she decides she needs some time to think about her situation. She has been married for a long time and doesn’t like the prospect of being on her own, she also doesn’t like the idea of her husband being with other women. She decides that the attic of the bookshop is a good place to stay until she sees all the spiders and cobwebs, so she is relieved when Luna who owns the magical shop a few doors down offers her a room at her house. However, she wasn’t expecting Luna’s son Daniel and his young son to be living there too, especially when she has recently had a run-in with Daniel. There is also the summer celebrations to sort out and a mysterious author of a book she loves. Will Flora return to Malcolm and give their marriage another try or will she find the courage to leave her marriage behind and move on with her life? It was lovely to return to Honeyford. I loved the first book, New Starts and Cherry Tarts at the Cosy Kettle, but I was little apprehensive reading this second book as the main character this time, Flora, I didn’t really take to in book one. As the book evolved I began to warm towards Flora. She is a lovely woman once you manage to peel back that tough exterior, although I was really surprised when the author wrote she was in her 40s as the way she acted and her mannerisms came across as someone much older. I was expecting her to be well into her 50s. There is a lot going on in this book, from Flora’s marriage issues, the summer celebrations, Daniels son’s problems with school and the mysterious writer of a book that is taking Honeyford residents by storm. I never like Malcolm in book one and he ups his game in this book. He certainly is a piece of work. I was keeping my fingers crossed the whole way through that Flora wouldn’t give him another chance. You will have to read the book to see if she does or doesn’t. My only tiny issue was that I wanted to see more from Callie and Noah, I know the book wasn’t about them but a bit more coverage would have been lovely as I adored them both, as well as Callie’s Gramps Stanley who made me laugh so much in the first book. I do hope he appears more in future books to come. This is a wonderful, summery, fun book that will leave you with a smile on your face. Whilst I believe it can be read as a standalone, I do suggest reading book one first so you know the background of the area and the characters.
