Blurb; Ellie’s brand new enterprise, the True Loaf Bakery, is finally open and classes are due to start. But when Katja’s ski-ing holiday ends in disaster, a new teacher must be found very quickly. Anita is up for the challenge, but – fresh from a break-up and an operation that’s left her feeling physically and emotionally vulnerable – the last thing she’s looking for when she moves to Sunnybrook is a new relationship. So it’s Sod’s law that she should find herself with not one but two guys vying for her attention. Sven, from Denmark, is a bit of an enigma – but maybe passion lurks beneath his cool reserve? And as for twenty-five-year-old football coach Ross – surely she’d be asking for trouble getting involved with a gorgeous man a decade her junior? (Although her football-mad son Rufus seems to love him.)
Moving in with Bertha proves a real comfort – but can Anita get to the bottom of what’s troubling the older woman?
Anita’s job at the True Loaf Bakery is only temporary, but she finds herself drawn ever deeper into life in the village – especially when she finds a child’s bracelet from long ago, in the rubble of the newly-renovated building. Solving the mystery of who it belongs to takes Anita on a journey of discovery – a journey that might just help her discover what her own heart really needs…
My Review; I absolutely love anything to do with this series and this did not disappoint me at all. They’re so cosy and happy. It feels like coming home everytime I pop back into this town. Every book including this one is full of community spirit, friendships, families, romance and happiness. Happy endings for all. Perfect chick-lit reading. Uplifting.
I loved it all. Such a beautiful outcome for many characters. I devoured this. Love the little town. All the characters. Parts had me laughing me out. Parts had me hungry with all the cooking within the story. It does highlight the importance that all families are different and that life goes on after The menopause. Also that relationships can survive any amount of time. Beautifully written. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend. Very spring vibes from the cover – gorgeous.
