New Starts and Cherry Tarts at the Cosy Kettle by Liz Eeles – Book Review

New Starts and Cherry Tarts at the Cosy Kettle –  Published by Bookouture (12 Mar. 2019) Amazon 

When Callie Fulbright anxiously awaits the new owner of the bookshop where she works she has no idea what opportunities lie ahead.  She’s excited to discover her long dismissed dream of a cafe in the bookshop is to be realised when new owner gives her the go-ahead to revamp the dusty back room into the Cosy Kettle Cafe.

Just when things are looking up, the return of the man who broke her heart sets her emotions spinning. At the same time someone’s trying to ruin the cafe’s reputation. Is there a connection?

We follow Callie as she rediscovers Noah and finds out what really happened before he left.

This is a lovely story about caring Callie and how she welcomes people into the cafe and her life, helping them along the way. Will she welcome Noah back into her life too?

I really enjoyed this book, my first Liz Eeles and I know it won’t be my last. New starts and cherry tarts is a funny romantic story about friends and family, perfect for a spring read. The characters are likeable and Callie has her hands full with her thrill seeking grandfather who brings fun to the book. Definitely one to bring a smile to your face and a tug on the heartstrings.

Highly recommended ✫✫✫✫✫

    I am the same as Angela, and like to read something a little less heavy inbetween the crime thrillers. I love the title of this, and the front cover would definitely draw me in x
