The Summer Seaside Kitchen – Jenny Colgan. ★★★★★

Flora is definitely, absolutely sure that escaping from the quiet Scottish island where she grew up to the noise and hustle of the big city was the right choice. What was there for her on Mure? It’s a place where everyone has known her all her life, and no one will let her forget the past. In the city, she can be anonymous, ambitious and indulge herself in her hopeless crush on her gorgeous boss, Joel.

When a new client demands Flora’s presence back on Mure, she’s suddenly swept back into life with her brothers (all strapping, loud and seemingly incapable of basic housework) and her father. As Flora indulges her new-found love of cooking and breathes life into the dusty little pink-fronted shop on the harbour, she’s also going to have to come to terms with past mistakes – and work out exactly where her future lies…

My Review: 
I have found a new favourite author! WOW!
I awarded five stars as this story just took me away (well to the beautiful island of Mure to be exact). What a beautiful story. I love the cover. I love the full story and I loved that ending. I am seriously impressed. This story is written well, easy to read and fast paced. I am already missing Mure and the wonderful characters there. I would highly recommend this story to you all. This felt like a holiday away even though I never left my couch! The perfect chick-lit read for me. I am now on the hunt for ALL Jenny’s other books, as if they’re anything like this one I will fall in love all over again. A beautifully written story about life, love, work, family and returning home.
