Coming Home to the Comfort Food Cafe by Debbie Johnson @HarperImpulse @debbiemjohnson


Book Description:

A brand new cosy novel from best-selling author Debbie Johnson.

Welcome to the cosy Comfort Food Café, where there’s kindness in every cup of hot chocolate and the menu is sprinkled with love and happiness…

Moving to the little village of Budbury, Zoe hopes the crisp Dorset sea breeze and gentle pace of life will be a fresh start for her and her goddaughter, Martha.

Luckily for them both, the friendly community at the café provide listening ears, sage advice, shoulders to cry on, and some truly excellent carrot cake. And when Martha’s enigmatic, absent father suddenly turns up, confusing not only Martha but Zoe too, the love and support of their new-found friends is the best present they could ask for.

Have Zoe and Martha truly found their home at the Comfort Food Café?

My Thoughts:

The opening chapter of this book has got to be one of the most emotional I have ever read. It had me laughing and crying and that was all within the first couple of pages!

Zoe is quite a free spirit, she hasn’t gotten over her best friends untimely death and is struggling bringing up Martha, her best friends daughter. A fresh start is just what they both need and I was desperate to hop in the pages and go with them.

The little village of Budbury has got to be the loveliest of places. Not only is it wonderfully scenic, the people are all lovely and it all centres around the Comfort Food Cafe. It really is the heart of the village and I wished I could transport myself directly there and become one of the villagers myself.

Cal is the love interest and what a love interest he is as well. I literally could feel myself swoon just reading about him. Tall, handsome, Australian, if that doesn’t have you having the most wonderful images appearing in your head I don’t know what will.

Coming Home to the Comfort Food Cafe is a wonderfully heart warming and emotional read. It is very much about building relationships and moving on with your life. Was very sad to get to the end.

My thanks to Harper Impulse for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.

Coming Home to the Comfort Food Cafe is available to purchase from Amazon.
