Christmas at the Beach Cafe by Lucy Diamond

A Christmas short story from bestselling author Lucy Diamond, revisiting her Beach Café characters.

After a hectic summer running her beach café in Cornwall, Evie Flynn is looking forward to her first Christmas with new boyfriend Ed – she’s determined that it’s going to be the most perfectly romantic one ever. Cosy nights in front of the fire, spicy mulled wine, mince pies . . . what’s not to love? But the peace is shattered when Ed’s ex suddenly gets in touch again, and then some unexpected guests arrive: Ed’s surly brother Jake and Evie’s heartbroken best friend Amber. Add in the stress of trying to finish her very own recipe book, snow blizzards and family dramas and Evie’s Christmas starts to look as if it’ll be a total turkey. Will any of her festive wishes come true . . . or is this Christmas just a recipe for disaster?

An absolute Christmas cracker from Lucy Diamond, bestselling author of The Beach Café and Me And Mr Jones. This novella is the perfect present for anyone who loves women’s fiction, heartwarming stories and the festive season

I have always loved the beach cafe, when recently asked what character i would like to be, i wanted to be Evie, i wanted to run a little cafe with a close knit community, so when i spied this on the kindle store for about 50p i knew it was fate. This book takes us back to the coast just in time for the season of goodwill. Whilst this is a short book there is plenty of drama throughout. Throw in some recipes for good measure and you have the perfect winter evenings read. What i love with this book, nothing much has changed its like i could just pick off where i left off with Evie and the gang and still amongst them. The characters were brilliant and the new introductions were just as grand, some aggravating, some not so - but all individual and likeable by the end, i am so glad i read this.

4/5 a good hot mug of breakfast tea!
