Spring is coming to The Café at the End of the Pier… A feel good novella and the start of a brilliant new series…
Jo has settled into running her grandparents’ little café at the end of the pier in Salthaven. She’s given it a spring-clean and a spruce-up and she’s getting to know the locals and starting to enjoy life by the sea.
But when her Harry, her ex-boyfriend, turns out to be her new accountant, feelings from the past start to flood back. He’s here to help sort out the café’s finances, which Jo’s grandparents left in a mess, but Harry seems to have a hidden agenda and Jo isn’t entirely sure spending time with him is a good idea.
Jo throws herself into her new plans for the café – turning it into a real café of love by arranging blind dates for some of the regulars. Her own love life might be non-existent, but it doesn’t mean she can’t bring a little bit of magic to the locals who have made her so welcome. This time she chooses single-dad Ben and doctor Jess. Will they find love at The Café at the End of the Pier?
And will Jo manage to put aside her feelings for Harry in order to give the café the future she dreams of for it…?
Part Two of the Café at the end of the Pier series was just as eventful and intriguing as the first. We welcome back Jo who seems much more settled and confident than she did in the first book. She is still intent on putting her own spin on the café that she has taken over from her grandparents and she is determined to make it a success…even if she may be having financial problems already.
What is especially great about Spring at the Café at the End of the Pier is that we learn a little more of Jo’s back story. We learn more about her mother and her siblings and also more about what drove her to move to Scotland all those years ago. Furthermore, familiar faces are popping up and appear to be trying to rock the comfy boat that the café has been for Jo.
I am really enjoying this series and I have already pre-ordered the third because I have to know what happens. Helen Rolfe, I am realising, is a master of slowly dripping tantalising information into the story to keep you hooked. Very clever.
If you want to make a clever decision today then that should be to download the first two books in the series and binge on them. They are perfect stories for those who love the comfort found in between the pages.
Spring at the Café at the End of the Pier by Helen Rolfe is available now.
