“The Comfort Food Cafe is perched on a windswept clifftop at what feels like the edge of the world, serving up the most delicious cream teas; beautifully baked breads, and carefully crafted cupcakes. For tourists and locals alike, the ramshackle cafe overlooking the beach is a beacon of laughter, companionship, and security – a place like no other; a place that offers friendship as a daily special, and where a hearty welcome is always on the menu.” Goodreads Summary
In light of the holiday season, it is the perfect time to recommend a holiday read. This book is everything you desire from a quick holiday read. I picked this one up without having read the previous story in the series. I quickly fell in love with the protagonist, Lauren. She is aware of her own flaws and struggles to confront the holiday season. As we journey through the holiday with her, we grow to love not only Lauren but her family and the cast of characters at the Comfort Food Café. Lauren’s journey of healing is helped along by each character she befriends, allowing Johnson to fully explore and successfully capture the sense of community in a small English village, especially during the holidays. This feel good holiday novel is sure to put a smile on your face. Four Christmas Puddings from me!
