Christmas at the Beach Cafe
Christmas at the Beach Cafe by Lucy Diamond
Author: Lucy Diamond
:  "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…"

My View
Omgosh, I looooved this book!  Right from the get-go we are thrown into the spirit of Christmas, of course with Evie's (the festive godess) help.  I enjoyed all the characters and connected to them quite quickly.  Amber and Evie really had me laughing with Ed's gift (amazing).  I was completely panicked at 49% – Been there!! 😮  All the talk about delicious food and just that holiday spirit in general, really kept my attention.  This is the perfect book to curl up with a hot chocolate in front of the fireplace.  I believe this is the 2nd Christmas Beach Cafe Book, with Christmas Gifts at the Beach Cafe being the first, it did not take away from following along or enjoying the read!  I was so excited to see recipes included at the end as well!! 😀 If you have time for just one, really nice, comorting christmas read this year – I definitely recommend Christmas at the Beach Cafe!  Download your kindle copy from amazon.com or amazon.ca
