Summary

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 the performance affects the book. The first one I listened to was awful and I couldn't get through it. However, Melody Grove brought this book to life without the need to give strange voices and accents to characters. They were perfectly performed and I enjoyed the book a lot.

I hadn't realised this was part of a series, so I'm a little disappointed that wasn't noted in the blurb - I've missed the first two books now and am never keen on going backwards. Having said that, I enjoyed the characters so much that I'm tempted to get to know them from the start.

The final thing to note is that the book was pretty short. It was going along at a lovely pace but then the ending felt very rushed. The book could have been much longer and kept at the same pace for my preference. These are minor niggles though, as it's a lovely, light book.

Rather Shallow

Happy girly girly endings. Some good insights into the psyche along the way; but very much a chic book. Lacking depth & something to get your teeth into.

Just a shame it’s so short

Really short and actually nothing about the cafe at all. Book 1 was fantastic. This be a nothing like it sadly.

Good but one voice annoyed

Annoying child’s voice off putting. You don’t want to hear that constantly.
Good story and ending though

wish there was a fourth one!

Thoroughly enjoyed All 3.... Just wish there was a fourth one.
The story line was great. The narrator was fab!
will be listening to more of her books.
