The Little Board Game Cafe - Jennifer Page || Blog Tour


An irresistible story of love, friendship and the power of Games Night, perfect for fans of Holly Martin and Christie Barlow.

When Emily loses her job, house and boyfriend all within a matter of days, she's determined to turn a negative into a positive and follow her dream of running a small cafe in the gorgeous Yorkshire village of Essendale.

But she quickly finds she's bitten off more than she can chew when the 'popular' cafe she takes over turns out to secretly be a failing business. Emily desperately needs a way to turn things around, and help comes from the unlikeliest of places when she meets local board game-obsessed GP Ludek. But when a major chain coffee shop opens on the high street, Emily is forced to question if she'll ever be able to compete.

Has she risked everything on something destined to fail? Or can a playful twist, a homely welcome, and a sprinkle of love make Emily's cafe the destination she's always dreamed of?

Do you ever read a book that is the sort of book you want to write and the sort of world you want to live in? The Little Board Game Cafe  was exactly that. This was a 100% a me sort of book, it had delicious food descriptions, wonderfully written characters and cozy vibes. Ticked every single box for me.

Emily had it all or so it seems but she loses her job house and boyfriend in one fell swoop but instead of dwelling too much she uses this chance to fulfil a lifelong dream she had with her mother and open a cafe. However, the cafe she has purchased may not have been all it seemed and she quickly needs to turn it around struggling for ideas inspiration does come in the form of an unlikely place. 

Agreeing to attend a running club with her best friend sets wheels in motion for meeting the local Gp turned board game fan and ideas start to flow but just when things seem to brightening up, a major coffee chain arrives and once more she is questioning her dream.

I honestly loved this, i loved Emily - she was logical, flawed but also sweet and i was just rooting for her. The cast of characters were all well rounded and had a depth to them that even the fleeting cafe guests left a mark.  An all round wonderful 5* read that is perfect for those cozy evenings.
