Summary

Cosy up at the Comfort Food Café for a romance that isn’t just for Christmas....

Christmas has never been Katie Seddon’s favourite time of year. Whilst everyone else shares memories of families coming together and festive number ones, the soundtrack to Katie’s childhood wasn’t quite so merry.

But since she moved to the village of Budbury on the gorgeous Dorset coast, Katie and her baby son have found a new family. A family who have been brought together by life’s unexpected roads and the healing magic of a slice of cake and a cupful of kindess at the Comfort Food Café.

This year, Katie’s new friends are determined to give her a Christmas to remember, and with a gorgeous newcomer in town, Katie’s Christmas wish for a happy home for her son might just come true.

Good!

At first I thought that Katie sounded very sad because of having to put up with her parents, but when she left she still sounded sad. I hoped this book would get happier because it was getting me sad! But all the way through Katie sounded like she was feeling sorry for her self, even when good things happened. Story was good .

I love, love, love it!

I love this book. It is my second one from Debbie Johnson at the Comfort Food Cafe. I just want to live here and be around these people. This is such a quirky bunch of characters and I like them all. I hope she keeps writing this series. I would hate to think that I won't hear from them again. I hope the next one has Auburn finding a geek at Tom's house. I have to believe that if everyone who is shy, scared, or lonely could live here, it would draw them out. I can't rave enough about her books. I am such a fan now.
