The Cosy Coffee Shop of Promises – Kellie Hailes ★★★★

Blurb: A dream come true?

Mel’s dreams of opening a cosy little coffee shop are finally coming true! She’s determined to serve the best flat whites and crumbly pastries in Devon – and nothing, not even local pub owner Tony or his fancy new coffee machine, will stand in her way.

The trouble is, her mother is coming to town, and Mel’s in desperate need of an instant boyfriend. And whilst Tony might be her business rival, he’s also totally gorgeous and would make the perfect fake fiancé…

A deal’s a deal, surely there’s no chance that Mel could actually fall in love with Tony?

My Review: This was a buddy read with Mel from Melanie’s Reads and it is a short, light and easy read. Book one in the Rabbits Leap series. A brilliant start to the series and one I cannot wait to continue reading. Main character Mel has her own coffee shop in this small town but soon find herself under threat by a coffee machine in the local pub. Local pub owner Tony is trying to save his pub and clear his debts.

These two main characters soon find themselves in a fake engagement when Mel’s mother turns up unannounced. In a love-hate relationship will they both be able to keep up the pretence? Will Tony be able to save his pub and Mel keep her cafe running? A happy ending or a disaster? A perfect, short escapism of a read. A well deserved four stars from me. I look forward to seeing what lies ahead for this series.
