Summary

Come to the Comfort Food Café this spring for sunshine, smiles and plenty of truly scrumptious lemon drizzle cake.

My name is Willow Longville. I live in a village called Budbury on the stunning Dorset coast with my mum, Lynnie, who sometimes forgets who I am. I'm a waitress at the Comfort Food Café, which is really so much more than a café...it's my home.

For Willow, the ramshackle café overlooking the beach, together with its warmhearted community, offers friendship as a daily special and always has a hearty welcome on the menu. But when a handsome stranger blows in on a warm spring breeze, Willow soon realises that her quiet country life will be changed forever.

Curl up with this gorgeous novel and make yourself at home at the Comfort Food Café.

eek - disappointing.

I usually like the books in this series. they’re light & frothy, but also funny and endearing. Not this one though, sadly. I’m not quite sure what it was actually about, but it didn’t hold my attention. it could, however, be because the narrator of the audiobook reads it with ZERO emotion or expression. Actually, she manages to make it sound vaguely patronising, and makes no effort to inject character into the voices. really disappointed with this.

Just wonderful!

I loved this book from the start, the narration was lovely, such a beautiful story. I have loved all the comfort cafe books, but this was by far my favourite.

Very disappointed!

Really couldn’t get into this I tried till chapter 15 but was too boring it didn’t have me gripped. I guess we’re all different.

Heat warming

Very enjoyable listen. A wonderful fairytail, if only real life could be like this, everyone living happy ever after. A good choice in the narrator who brought the spirit of the book alive.

PLEASE KEEP WRITING THIS SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so in love with this town and these people! I want to live here. This is what a small town should be like. The characters are funny and charming and real. I am hoping that the next book will be Auburn's big romance. I anxiously check weekly to see if Debbie Johnson has written another book. I loved the narrator on this one, particularly when she does Willow's voice. I just can't get enough of these people.

Good book but personally irritating protagonist

It was a struggle to finish this book for me, apart from the forced pop culture references and (creates her own drama) protagonist I rather liked everything else about the book. It wasn't horrible but it wasn't a smooth read for me.

Loved it!

This book had me laughing out loud and trying not to cry. The author writes an engaging story with a witty main character in Willow and her relationship with her mother, suffering from Alzheimer's, all while living her life and falling in love. The narrators voice was perfect for the part and she did a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life. I will definitely read and listen to more by this author!
