What the publisher says:
Millie’s working all hours to make her seaside café a success, so when a rival multi-national café chain opens its latest branch just around the corner, stealing away her customers, it means WAR!
Millie’s remaining loyal customers step up – and a new arrival in town, the gorgeous, enigmatic Jed Henville, is also keen on helping Millie solve her business crisis. But it’s only after Jed sweeps her off her feet that Millie suddenly realises how little she knows about him…
What I say:
Georgia was a new author for me but I have a weakness for books about chocolate and cupcakes so this seemed like the ideal read for me.
Millie Vanilla runs a cosy little cafe on the Dorset coast which appeals to holidaymakers and locals alike. The cafe is her livelihood but she discovers that a multi national coffee chain are opening their latest branch in town and she, rightly so, fears for the future of her business. With a band of regular customers and her one employee Millie sets about rejuvenating her cafe to try to bring more life into it.
Not surprisingly there is a love interest in the form of Jed who Millie discovers is working on behalf of the coffee chain. There were no surprises that there would be a romance between Jed and Millie but it was handled well with no cliches and the story as a whole was an uplifting and entertaining read.
