Welcome to the Kookaburra Creek Cafe.
For Hattie, the cafe has been her refuge for the last fifty years – her second chance at a happy ending after her dreams of being a star were shattered. But will the ghosts of her past succeed in destroying everything she’s worked so hard to build?
For Alice, the cafe is her livelihood. After Hattie took her in as a teenager, Alice has slowly forged a quiet life as the cafe’s manager (and chief cupcake baker). But with so many tragedies behind her, is it too late for Alice’s story to have a happy ending?
For Becca, a teenager in trouble, the cafe could be the new start she yearns for. That is, if she can be persuaded to stop running from her secrets. Can Becca find a way to believe in the kindness of strangers, and accept that this small town could be the place where she finally belongs?
One small town. Three lost women. And a lifetime of secrets.

It was the cover that ‘sucked' me into buying this book. Absolutely gorgeous. I enjoyed the read, the characters, the two story lines & the ease of reading flowing sentences, paragraphs & chapters with visual settings. However, the only thing I would say which had me floundering somewhat was the jumping from chapter to chapter with the different time lines. For me I got lost along the way a tad, & not sure whether I would highly recommend it to my friends, however it certainly has it’s place on the bookshelf.
The story ticks along with likeable characters and a story that makes you want to finish it.
Lovely well-paced read.
This is a book primarily for feminine readers, and focuses on three generations of women who succeed despite the actions of men close to them. Soothng and life afirming reading for the female soul.
