    Evie Flynn has always been the black sheep of her family - a dreamer, unlike her over-achieving elder sisters. She's tried making a name for herself as an actress, a photographer and a singer, but nothing has ever worked out. Now she's stuck in temp hell, with a pension-planning boyfriend. Somehow life seems to be passing her by. Then her beloved aunt Jo dies suddenly in a car crash, leaving Evie an unusual legacy - her precious beach cafe in Cornwall.

    The Beach Cafe

    I thoroughly enjoyed this lovely story and getting to know all the characters was wonderful.

    After a hectic summer running her beach café in Cornwall, Evie Flynn is looking forward to her first Christmas with new boyfriend Ed. But when Ed's ex suddenly gets in touch again, and some unexpected guests arrive: Ed's surly brother Jake and Evie's heartbroken best friend Amber, Evie's Christmas starts to look as if it'll be a total turkey. Will any of her festive wishes come true?

    Too short-not value for money

    It was a nice short story, but no real depth to follow in Evie's story.

    With her Beach Café closed for the winter, Evie should be looking forward to lazy days and a happy Christmas... But her sister Ruth is coming to stay, following her marriage breakdown and her boyfriend Ed breaks the news that he's going to spend Christmas in London, for family reasons. There are still a few surprises in store for Evie though, that look set to make this Beach Café Christmas the most memorable one yet....

    A little short, but lovely.

    I really enjoyed listening to this. This is the first audio book I've listened to after a failed attempt with another book. I hadn't factored how much..Show More »
