When Alice Appleton escapes to the gorgeous seaside town of Castle Cove it’s the change of scenery she didn’t even realise she needed.

Mysterious and hunky Jay O’Donnell has lived in picturesque Castle Cove since he was a child. As a volunteer on the lifeboats, his days by the sea are far from predictable. Haunted by a tragedy from his past, he’s on a mission to save as many people as possible. But when Alice Appleton walks into his life – and turns his world upside down – he begins to realise that perhaps it might just be his turn to be rescued…
As Alice and Jay find themselves unexpectedly falling for each other, will they learn the importance of letting go to make way for second chances? And will Alice find the life she’s always dreamed of in Castle Cove?
My Review; Summer at the Castle Cafe is the perfect read for summer 2018… The perfect book for chick-lit and comedy lovers. I love this cover and its making me want summer and to visit the castle cafe myself!
I loved the sound of the setting and all the characters. From the beginning you could tell not everything was perfect in Alice’s world. Then you have Jay who keeps trying to help Alice unexpectedly and more of a hero, hunk firgure in the book! Both have been through horrible events in the past… Will this bring them together? Or will Alice playing hard to get scare him away?
It been a while since a book made me laugh out loud but this story made me chuckle throughout and brought a smile to my face! It was nice to read a different genre for a change instead of thrillers, very refreshing. A brilliant debut. I would highly recommend to you all! A well deserved four stars. I look forward to reading more by this author in the future.
